Stonework Features Perfect for Corner Block
- Published on 25 July 2014
Raked ceilings, stone feature walls and timber accents lend something of a ski-lodge feel to this luxurious home.
On a corner block in the new Heron Park estate in Harrisdale, the Windsor is able to show off a stunning elevation on two fronts. Red brick is interspersed with rendered sections with feature stone accents and pillars, complemented by attractive gables. A timber- decked verandah pairs with the timber-look double garage.
BGC Residential general manager Mark Anderson said the traditional but luxurious exterior was an exceptional indication of the brand’s quality and luxury.
The extensive stonework made it a perfect design for those looking to create a stunning feature on a corner block, or even a block with a wider frontage to maximise the garden space.
Inside, stonework and timber is used to separate some of the spaces.
A dedicated entry space leads to a long, slightly staggered hallway which runs deep into the house. On the left is a big main suite well away from other living areas for privacy. The suite includes a sitting area, open dressing room and big, stylishly appointed ensuite to create a real sense of retreat for parents.
The large chef’s kitchen, part of the central open living zone, is another highlight. An extra- long stone bench faces the dining area at one end, and the alfresco area at the other.
Bi-fold servery windows make entertaining easy. The kitchen has a large walk-in pantry and connects with both the laundry and the double garage, with another walk-in storage cupboard just inside the entrance from the garage.
Twin ovens, a wide range hood and cooktop and plenty of storage in the timber-look cupboards make the kitchen an attractive, functional space.
Raked ceilings over the nearby living and dining spaces extend to the alfresco area off the dining zone and create a generous sense of space.
A theatre just beyond the open living zone shares a two-way gas fire with the open zone and has its own sliding-door access to the alfresco area, in keeping with a housewide theme of ready indoor-outdoor access.
“One of the most noteworthy aspects of this home is the level of access to the exterior of the home through various living spaces,” Mr Anderson said.
He said the home was ideal for a variety of buyers. The oversized main suite provided a perfect retreat for professional couples, downsizers or growing families, the open living area and integrated indoor/outdoor spaces worked for those who loved to entertain, and the home theatre and studio allowed plenty of living zones for a family with children.
“The beauty of this home is that the design is truly stunning and appealing for many different target markets,” he said.
The Windsor, with a total area of 268sqm, is priced at $298,990 as displayed but can be built from $237,990.
