Take time out this weekend and look for a holiday home to chill out in.
Sarah Homes' Grace 3e design is one we've got our eye on

WORDS TRUDY ORAM

I love it when I find a house with good storage. By that I mean a bank of tall cupboards all in a row - it's a clean, streamlined look and when they're dressed in a dark tone such as Laminex's Fossil, they look even better. And that's what you'll find in Sarah Homes' single -storey Grace 3e design.

This three-bedroom design will predominantly suit the holiday home/ weekender market, but it could also be your permanent forever home it's got such a good vibe - and good storage. The display at Victor Harbor is case in point and it's a delight to find the essentials have not been forgotten just because this may be a casual home as this is most likely to be an entertainer as well.

There's three bedrooms, with enough room for bunk beds to sleep a crowd, there's two modern bathrooms, a decent size laundry and wardrobes in all bedrooms. There's also a huge combined living zone with the lounge to one side, dining in the middle and a very stylish kitchen with that bank of tall cupboards I'm loving. In the display home, the Grace 3e's kitchen is finished with a long island bench (Laminex 's Pure Mineralstone) with a waterfall edge, a seating niche for stools, Blum soft close drawers, a double sink and underbench oven .

But, of course, you'll need some outdoor space too and this one comes with up to three decks so you can enjoy some vitamin D in the midst of winter. You can configure these any which way to cater to your block's individual shape and style. For good measure the living zones look out in two directions to these decks, so when entertaining at the weekend, you 'll be in the midst of things no matter where you are, be it the kitchen, deck or dining.

Another bonus of this design is the ceiling height, reaching a lofty 2.7m as standard which makes such a difference to your internal space. Floor-to-ceiling windows and three sets of aluminium sliding doors which open to the decks create good cross ventilation and thermal efficiency. And affordability can't be ignored with this design starting from $105,700. So you better start looking for that holiday block this weekend.

Features you'll love

More space for living: There's no wasted space in the Grace 3e and only a hallway between the living and sleeping quarters divides the spaces.

Sleek spaces: The modern bathrooms have spacious dimensions, making easy provision for multiple people to use. Both the ensuite and main bathroom, set out in a three-way style of separate vanity area, shower room and toilet are presented in neutral tones with luxurious vanities and wide showers.

Coastal vibes: We love the mix of materials used in the display which gives a relaxed beach feel. This is True Oak corrugated wall cladding, weatherboard, louvre windows and decking.
