'Family 310' - Elliot Springs

MLH 'Family 310' accessible multigenerational display home OPEN this weekend.

The new Martin Locke Homes display home is NOW OPEN WEEKENDS at Elliot Springs heralding a new era of accessible, mulitgenerational family home design in North Queensland.

the design

Fittingly named the ‘Family 310’, it is designed to allow families at all stages of life to live together but still maintain their privacy and independence. 

It boasts two separate ‘homes’ under the one roof, each with its own exclusive entry point, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen areas, living and patios, all connected by a shared, lockable laundry.

And includes private feature entry points to both living spaces, raised ceilings, wide doorways and halls, no-steps on entry and throughout the home, large step-free bathrooms and showers, separate alfresco areas, and a spacious and safe living open plan design.

The concept

The MLH 'Family 310' is designed to keep families together while also allowing them to ability to live independently and affording them the privacy to do that.

By using modern design concepts and building practices, it re-invents what is a long-held tradition of families living together longer in European cultures.

Multigenerational or Multi-Gen homes are becoming a popular option around Australia as life and financial pressures make sharing a home with family more and more attractive.

We have taken accessible and inclusive housing features, combined with modern fittings, fixtures and furnishings to deliver a home that can adapt to suit modern North Queensland families at different stages of their life cycles.


The reasoning
Every family is different!

In today’s modern world where:

  • young adults live at home longer or struggle to enter the housing market alone or;
  • grandparents care for their young grandchildren while both parents work;
  • where older parents want to stay in their own home longer but require support;
  • a grown-up child living with an impairment wishes for some independence but needs to stay close to home or;
  • you simply have that guest family member who won’t leave - the ‘Family 310’ offers a solution for every family’s living situation.


The Family 310 will also be highly accessible, combining elements of both Silver & Gold Levels of the Livable Housing Australia Guidelines (LHAG) with the 'standard' design meeting the Gold Level requirements.

Steve Jenkosky from Golden Age Advisory said providing suitable options for seniors to live at home independently but still have access to family support would help many North Queenslanders in their golden years.

“Maintaining independence is so important to our older residents, they have worked hard and contributed to society and deserve suitable housing options as they grow older, but they understand they may also need help from time-to-time and the MLH Family design concept ticks the boxes,” he said.
