Rooms that look and feel spacious help make a home comfortable and relaxed.
And that’s what you’ll discover at Henley’s cleverly designed Banksia 31, which allows for generous and inviting family living on a relatively compact 14m x 28m block.
“This double-storey home redefines modern and easy living with a compelling price point,” Henley general manager sales, marketing and design Jeremy Hanger said.
While a smart layout contributes to this home’s sense of space, a good use of windows, including a servery window in the kitchen, also helps, ensuring each area is filled with an abundance of light.
The home’s colour scheme creates a fresh feel. As displayed, there are greys, whites and earthy browns combined with natural finishes including timber and stone, all pepped up with zesty lime decor.
In the living area, a mirrored wall, as displayed, “allows light to bounce around the space and creates a beautiful sense of opulence and expansiveness”, Mr Hanger said.
Also in the living area, and the main bedroom, too, are alcoves, which give extra depth to the rooms and double as striking focal points.
In the study, a floating desk boosts the room’s contemporary style and visually opens up the floor space. And in the kitchen, the overhead cabinets have been kept to a minimum to ensure an uncluttered appearance.
The overhead cabinets there, and in the laundry, are handle-less to blend with the neutral palette of the walls, so the joinery visually disappears into the background without overshadowing each space.
Other highlights of the kitchen include a walk-in pantry, induction cooktop, under-bench oven, raised timber breakfast bar and stone benchtops.
An open-tread staircase allows light to pass from the front entry to the rear areas of the home and fill the wide hallway for the sunniest of welcomes.
Family living is well thought out. Upstairs, you’ll find a leisure area for the kids, while downstairs is an open living zone, plus a separate theatre room.
Bedrooms are grouped on the first floor, together with the main bathroom and one of the home’s two powder rooms.
The main bedroom has a large walk-in wardrobe and luxurious ensuite.
The Banksia features a choice of seven facade options, with the popular Dakota facade on display at Clyde North.
“The beauty of the Dakota facade is its architectural look of great symmetry, which is enhanced by contrasting feature materials,” Mr Hanger said.
