Kieran and Emily were excited to join Watagan Park for their first build, and love the community and natural surrounds of the estate.

Many first-home buyers are making their way out to Watagan Park to build, with its beautiful scenery and welcoming community vibes. Kieran and Emily are one such couple who knew this estate would be the perfect place for them to create their forever home.

Kieran is a technical support officer at an engineering company in Newcastle and Emily works as a spa and wellness coordinator at a wellness retreat in the Hunter Valley, so the Watagan Park area served as the perfect location for them to build. “For a while, we were tossing up between building a new home and buying an older home and renovating it. We decided to build a new house as it was more cost effective for us,” shares Kieran.

The pair first heard of the estate through friends, and were drawn to the area’s quiet and relaxing atmosphere. “We have friends that had already built in the area, and every time we came out to visit them, we thought, ‘Wouldn’t this be a nice place to build a home?’”

Building at Watagan Park was a breeze for the couple. They opted to set up their home through MOJO Homes, and from there, construction was a smooth process. “We started building in December 2018 and had no dramas at all. We built with MOJO Homes and we couldn’t be happier with them. The team at JPG were also very helpful throughout the whole process,” says Kieran.

Both Kieran and Emily are over the moon with their new home at Watagan Park, and would recommend it to others looking for a relaxed community and plenty of natural scenery. “It’s quiet, peaceful and a breath of fresh air – a great place to live!”

Now that their home is finished and they are all settled in, Kieran and Emily have been enjoying all the features the estate has to offer their lifestyle. “We’re able to be active in the outdoors and, being so close to the Watagan Mountains, we can go hiking, camping and explore the local area, while still not being too far away from everything.”
