Heston Lives Up to Star's Reputation - The Weekend West NEW HOMES


Fist impressions of Broadway Homes’ Heston display are of a commanding presence and sense of grandeur, just like Hollywood screen star Charlton Heston, after whom the home is named. The elevation has angular lines, including a blade wall, big windows and a raked roof over the second-storey balcony. Broadway Homes sales and marketing manager Peter Gobetti said the Heston was designed to have coastal appeal, good zoning and versatility and had been very well received since opening. “Visitors to the home notice that this home is well suited to a growing family,” Mr Gobetti said.

Double front doors open from a sheltered porch to a big entry foyer with the staircase to the upper storey. The main suite has double doors opening to a long walk-in robe. The gleaming ensuite has two semi-recessed square vanity basins, a spa bath in a raised tilled surrounding with step, a built-in shower and a separate toilet. Double doors lead from the foyer past the laundry to the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area.

 This space is a marvel of clean, sleek, contemporary lines and shiny surfaces, from the tiled floors to the high-gloss kitchen cupboards, stone bench tops and glass splash back. There is a dropped bulkhead over the kitchen. A stepped recessed feature over the living area and shadow-set cornices throughout. Floor-to-ceiling window panels let in natural light and views of the garden, while a double glass sliding door at the far end opens to the alfresco area.

All the bedrooms are downstairs, with three double-sized children’s bedrooms in a wing at the back of the home. Each has built-in robe. Also in this area is a bathroom, powder room and linen cupboard. Upstairs are an extra-big theatre room with a row of stepped seating and a big room called the study/retreat, which opens onto the balcony. Both these rooms are multi-purpose and flexible. People running a business at home would appreciate the extra space for a home office, while parents of teenager may wish to move all the teenage activities upstairs. Broadway Homes also offers the option to move the main suite and ensuite upstairs, or to design the home as a single-storey version. The Heston is 13.75m wide and covers 384sqm. Versions are available from $391,375.
