10 Reasons Your Next Home Should be a House and Land Package at North Harbour
April 26, 2019
What’s a House and Land Package?
A “house and land package” is when the developer (North Harbour) who is selling land, asks a builder to provide an example of one of their designs which would fit on a particular block which adheres to covenant and building regulations i.e. space either side of the front of the house and so on. The developer and builder then package the house design and the land together into a House and Land Package.
The aim of these house and land packages is to give buyers a clear idea of what is achievable with certain blocks and particular house designs. Our usual recommendation to new visitors to North Harbour is to first choose the type of house you would like and then return to the Sales and Information Centre to discuss available land for sale which will work with your choice of design. As we already know that house and land packages supplied by our builder partners work with our covenants and building requirements, choosing a house and land package can streamline and simplify this process, particularly if you are a first home buyer or have bought before but are now looking to build for the first time.
House packages come with a variety of inclusions from basic requirements up to marble benchtops and top of the range cookers. Each builder offers a range of different packages to suit a range of needs and budgets. To find out more about living at North Harbour click here to see our available house and land packages.

This 1000 acres will include walking and bike tracks, lots of trees (over 60,000 have already been planted) and plenty of play equipment for young and older kids, BBQs, artworks and picnic areas as well as exercise equipment.

The Heritage Park which will showcase this area is currently in the final stages of construction and will open at the end of this year opening this unique area up to the public.
