Privacy for parents is at a premium in the secluded main suite of Affordable Living Homes' Regent display, at Settlers Hills Townside in Baldivis.
The main suite is at the front of the home, well away from three minor bedrooms, and includes a spacious sleeping area brightened by three slim, vertical glazed panels and a full-height corner window.
It has a deep U-shaped walk-in robe and elegant open ensuite, with a neat vanity unit. Its position left of the entry provides separation from the three minor bedrooms, yet is close enough for parents to hear small children at night.
Between the main suite and minor bedrooms, the open-plan living zone is highly functional, bright and spacious, with an easy-to-furnish and adaptable layout.
Sales and marketing manager Larry Scamaton said the Regent was designed to accommodate a variety of buyers, including families and empty-nesters, with version within
Reach of first-homebuyers.
"The market has given the Regent an overwhelming tick of approval, and its overall layout, rear living areas opening on to a massive alfresco area, and affordable pricing are being cited as driving inquires about this come," Mr Scamaton said.
"It also has a spacious home theatre for movie nights, a galley-style kitchen with island bench, flowing to a massive alfresco area, and open-plan dining area and family room."
A glazed sliding door at the back of the kitchen provides a seamless connection to alfresco area, making transferring food or tableware easy.
The main living zone includes a separate theatre room, which is on a comfortable scale and has raised platform for cinemas-style seating.
Three double minor bedrooms, each with a single robe, are in separate wing near the bathroom and laundry.
From the street, the Regent has a pavilion effect in the roof line, a feature tiled wall to frame the three slim glazed panels of the main suite, and a double garage with remote-controlled sectional door.
Neutral rendered walls, horizontal boars below the eaves and a light Colorbond roof ensure maximum street appeal. Versions of the home can be built from $167,490.
