Contrasting textures including Vizela hones vein-cut marble, wide eaves and high-pitched roof sections dominate the façade. Broadway Homes’ sales and marketing manager Peter Gobetti said that the Taylor was the builder’s first-storey display home for some time. “Broadway Homes, in earlier times, was renowned for high-end single-storey homes and we are revisiting this with the high-end Taylor,” Mr Gobetti said.
“Of course, quality of design fittings and building finish is out number one priority and the Taylor ticks all of these boxes and more. “It’s a stunning 295sqm single-storey home which encompasses the true feel luxury family living. “A bright and spacious family home at the forefront of model design, The Taylor is versatile and visually appealing with distinct zoning.” Double front doors open from under a portico to a glazed entry with recessed high ceilings and an art niche at the far end.
