Finalist - MBA ACT Excellence in Building Awards 2017
This stunning, modern residence has been designed and built as a single-story family haven, equipped with the latest in fittings, fixtures and technology for a young couple with a single child. A combination of brick and render creates a contemporary exterior to the home which is enhanced by the concrete roof tiles.
The home features a main bedroom with walk-in-robe and ensuite, two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a fourth bedroom or study, main bathroom with separate WC, large, open-plan kitchen with walk-in butler’s pantry, open-plan family and dining rooms, formal living room, two-car garage, and an alfresco entertaining area. Comfort has been assured with the inclusion of a Daikin ducted, reverse-cycle, zoned air conditioning system which services the bedrooms and living areas via a control pad.
The central feature of the home is the large, open-plan kitchen/living and family zone which is located in the middle of the house adjacent to the alfresco entertaining area for maximum functionality. The kitchen is fitted out with a 40mm quartz benchtop to complement the Thermoform vinyl wrap cabinets and panels and the owners love the inclusion of soft-close drawers, glass splashback and chrome sink mixer.
