Finding a peaceful place to call home!
Reggie Cruz and his family can’t wait to become part of the Donnybrae community. Having recently secured a lot within Stage 15, they have finally found their own peaceful place in Melbourne’s outer north to call home.
Reggie, a first home buyer, was looking for a cosy place that could meet his requirements of peace and quiet while providing the best of amenities. Presently renting in Reservoir with wife Maureen and their two young daughters aged 9 and 11, Reggie began searching for small close-knit community estates with medium-sized lots in the north and found exactly what he was looking for at Donnybrae.
“We were recommended Donnybrae by a friend who was one of the earliest residents. On visiting the estate, we loved that Donnybrae was a small estate and provided the right blend of peace and calm with easy access to great amenities,” Reggie comments.
“The lot sizes were right for us and had a good frontage and ticked a lot of boxes for us. We were particularly attracted to the lots which face the conservation area and were lucky enough to secure the one we wanted,” he adds.
Reggie, who works in the banking sector and his wife Maurine who works in retail, need to travel to the city for work. Therefore, finding an estate like Donnybrae that provides proximity to public transport while being easily accessible by road was one of their priorities. The couple also likes that the estate has great future schools and recreational facilities available close by for their daughters.
The family, who hail from the Philippines had a great buying experience and are looking forward to making Donnybrae home.
“Being a first home buyer and relatively new to Australia, I was quite uncertain about the whole buying process. But the staff at Donnybrae made us feel welcome and guided us every step of the way, making it a swift and happy experience overall,” Reggie says.
“Once all formalities are done, we are planning to build a single storey, four bedroom house that will meet the needs of our growing family.”
With his family’s future planned at Donnybrae, Reggie has already recommended the estate to some of his friends with a view to them also joining the young community.
“It would be wonderful for us to be together at Donnybrae,” he concludes.
