Following on from the success of the Monroe, Broadway Homes has launched the Garland display home.

“One of our best-selling displays, the Monroe, was the inspiration for a few of this home’s attributes, the elevation in particular,” Broadway Homes Sales and Marketing Manager Peter Gobetti said. “The floor plan was based on a combination of our previous designs with distinct zoning, clever use of space and well-proportioned room sizes with little wasted space to fit on a 12.5m-wide block.”

The elevation has been designed to be elegant and timeless, with a mix of acrylic texture two-tone render, tile cladding and Bristile clay tile roof with quarter-round gutters. A feature rendered corbelling over a cantilever entry and upper floor creates interest across the front and a statement entry for guests. “There is an emphasis on the entry and foyer to have a point of interest down the long corridor to the rear of the home,” Mr Gobetti said.

“A picture nook was designed outside the master bedroom and the staircase boasts a first step plinth and riser in stone.” Function and practicality come to the fore in the kitchen with an easily accessible utility area including a scullery with butler’s pantry and adjacent laundry. The kitchen includes a high-end AEG appliances package with pyrolytic ovens, gas hot plate and concealed rangehood.

Mr Gobetti said the kitchen island bench was designed as a casual dining option with dual-sided storage and finished with 40mm stone benchtop and negative detail. A double bowl sink in the island bench is complemented by a single bowl sink in the adjacent scullery. Two-tone laminate cabinetry includes soft closing drawers and cupboards. Dual stacking sliding doors open from the living area and kitchen to a covered alfresco, giving a good connection to the outdoor entertaining space.

The open-plan living, dining and kitchen is complemented by oversized windows, allowing plenty of natural light into the space. Another standout feature of the home is a sunken theatre with lowered ceiling. The display has a luxurious feel with textured walls and inbuilt cabinetry. The main suite is located downstairs at the front of the home and features a walk-in robe through to an ensuite.

Upstairs there is another living option with a living area and study nook. Three minor bedrooms with built-in robes and a family bathroom finish off the upstairs floorplan. Mr Gobetti said the Garland would suit second and third homebuyers looking for a family home and empty nesters, with the conveniently located ground floor main suite. The design suits a minimum 350sqm block with a 12.5m frontage.
