Designed with family comfort in mind, Sarah Homes' Pavilion 135 is ideal as either a permanent or holiday home
There's a lot more to Sarah Homes' Pavilion 135 than first meets the eye. Designed as two rectangular pods joined by a glass breezeway - with one side as the entrance - the simple but clever format allows the home to work perfectly as either a permanent home or a weekender.
Light-filled and spacious, the three -bedroom Pavilion 135 boasts a streamlined layout with three distinct zones: the living pod, the bedroom pod and the outdoor zone. Sarah Homes' marketing manager Jaye Smith says the design - on show at Mile End - is aimed at a wide variety of potential homebuyers.
"It was designed as a family home, but its smart use of space and open plan living works well for buyers at any stage of life," she says. "The demarcation of the living space from the sleeping zone allows for the hub of family life - a spacious area for eating, entertaining and relaxing - to be separated from the sanctuary of the bedrooms."
The living pod's large proportions is one of the home's standout features - along with the light that streams in from the windows on all sides. At the far end, the kitchen spreads from one side to the other, and there is plenty of benchtop space to play with. Double round sinks in the island bench are another highlight, as is a side-facing niche cupboard - perfect for hiding the kettle in when not being used. There is no shortage of storage options.
The second pod, with its 2.7m high ceilings, has three bedrooms, plus an ensuite and the main bathroom , all well appointed. The minor bedrooms are of equal size, but the master bedroom also boasts a wide feature window with louvres.
The ensuite is generous with a wide shower, wide vanity and built -in shelves in a narrow alcove is a clever use of space. Extensive timber decking out front is another standout feature, enhancing the design's appeal as a home ideal for "easy summer living". "Our homes are designed to make you feel like you are on holiday every day," Jaye says.
