Upwardly Mobile - The Sunday Times HOME

Billed as “double-storey home at a single-storey price”, the Paramount is the latest showcase from Broadway Homes.

This Alkimos display home illustrates one of two layouts available in the builder’s Inspired Designs range of cost-effective two-storeys. In this version, it’s just the home theatre that’s on the top floor. The second layout puts the master suite upstairs and will be demonstrated in another new Broadway display, which is set to open in Wandi early this year.

Peter Gobetti, Sales & Marketing manager at Broadway Homes, says putting just one room upstairs is a cost-effective way of increasing backyard or alfresco space on today’s compact blocks. “Due to the growing trend in Perth where blocks are becoming smaller, there is an inevitable reduction in recreational outdoor space,” Peter says. “This is certainly one market that we have opened Broadway Homes up to, providing affordable two-storey designs pitched at a leaner price tag, but without compromising on quality.” The Paramount can be build from $263,924, but Broadway Homes has added some deluxe features to the display to create a top-of-the-range version prices just under $375,000.

This display specification included acrylic texture render, high ceilings, stone benchtops and an upgraded choice of laminates. Glamorous décor choices highlight a large and indulgent master suite, where the designers have added a long low window in the dressing area to accentuate the sense of space, plus a sliding door leading out from the ensuite to a decked courtyard. In the kitchen, a contemporary mix of glass-white and timber-effect cabinetry and grey stone worktops highlights clean, clutter-free lines. The stainless-steel cooking appliances include two ovens and a wide cooktop. Kids have their own space, with a large activity room that can be accessed easily from the entry foyer or from the computer nook that has been build into the end of the kitchen. The main family area and dining room flows neatly out to the alfresco, while the upstairs theatre room is a perfect multi-use space for the whole family to enjoy.
