Combining a classically elegant aesthetic with an extremely functional floor plan, the Loren by Broadway Homes offers the perfect balance of beauty and livability. “The Loren features excellent zoning,” says Broadway Homes’ sales and marketing manager Peter Gobetti. “The living area of the home is open and spacious, allowing for natural light and the feeling of bringing the outdoors in. “The upper floor is dedicated to the parents and includes a beautifully detailed main suite with ensuite, a private retreat living area, sun terrace and reading room. “The lower floor is spacious and free-flowing to cater for the family. Features included three bedrooms, two bathrooms and one powder room.”

Designed to accommodate guests and extended family, the Loren includes a privately zoned living space on the ground floor, with its own spacious bedroom and ensuite. “With young adults staying at home for longer nowadays, and extended family member perhaps moving back into the home, we believe it’s important to incorporate a third bathroom in the home,” Peter says. He adds that the Loren’s floor plan is also versatile, and easily adapted to different family situations. “The top floor is zoned to contain a main suite, sitting area and reading room, however, this could easily transform into a nursery for a younger family. Alternatively, for an older family, the upper level could be converted to a teenager’s retreat.”

With its classic Hamptons style, the Loren has an impressive street presence. Design elements include a textured, neutral-grey render and corbelling, white window frames, a cantilevered bay window, terraced balcony, double aluminium framed doors to create a formal entry, Trimdek metal roofing, and a custom aluminium and stainless steel balustrade. It is the kitchen, however, with its double pantry and big scullery, that is receiving the most compliments from visitors to the home, according to Peter.

Benefiting from 40mm granite or Qstone benchtops, as well as AEG kitchen appliances, and Oliveri sinks with Vito Bertoni mixers in both the kitchen and scullery, the kitchen has undeniable wow factor. “We’ve received very positive feedback on the specification of this home, and in particular the kitchens higher end cabinetry,” Peter says.  “It looks and feels unrestrained yet at the same time classic, timeless and affordable.”

Prices for the Loren start at $392,471, going up to $579,407, which includes most options as displayed.
