Holiday Style

Whether you're after a holiday home, permanent residence or an investment property, Sarah Homes' McCubbin 2 Storey (with carport) design is sure to impress

Sarah Homes have focused on providing expansive entertaining space both inside and out as well as harnessing natural light and maximising views with its two-storey McCubbin family design. The three-bedroom design, which is on display at Old Noarlunga, has recently had a faceliftwith the entire display village undergoing a makeover.

With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, open plan living upstairs as well as an extensive balcony, it has all you need and more for a weekender home or even a permanent residence. With a mere 6.5m wide footprint, this slim design will fit tight riverfront or beach blocks, meaning good economy of scale, and also offers undercover parking out front. Being a two-storey design, there's plenty of room to relax and unwind.

Open-plan living on the upper level features a contemporary galley kitchen with an island bench providing a breakfast bar for casual meals. There is plenty of storage space with overhead and underbench cupboards and drawers. It overlooks  the lounge and large dining area - enough to fit a 10-12 seater table - and opens up to a large partially undercover deck. This open space is an entertainer's dream, filled with natural light thanks to two sets of wide sliding glass doors making it ideal for evening drinks and barbecues.

The master bedroom is also upstairs to take advantage of any potential views, and comes with its own ensuite with a full size bath, and walk -in wardrobe. Upstairs also has a separate powder room with toilet as a convenience for family and guests. Two minor bedrooms are downstairs, serviced by a bathroom of their own, and the laundry is adjacent this with direct outdoor access.

A second lounge takes up the remainder of the internal downstairs area, while out front is a carport with enough shelter for two cars. Additional storage solutions can be found across the design, with a linen cupboard on the lower level, a walk-in pantry to the kitchen and the master bedroom's walk-in robe with his and her hanging space.

Holiday at Home

The new McCubbin 2 Storey design by Sarah Homes turns an escape into a family paradise

With four bedrooms and a balcony alfresco, the latest incarnation of the two-storey McCubbin appeals to large families and those who love to entertain. At 7.7m wide, it was originally designed for beach and riverside hot spots but has become popular for modern in-fill blocks. "More people are building these homes to live in permanently because it is so well suited for narrower blocks that are now common with urban development and land subdivisions," says Leanne Goddard, of Sarah Homes.

"It has evolved out of the popular three bedroom design. The display is just over six metres wide and yet it is so spacious when you're inside, and is easy to customise to land orientation and lifestyle." Spaciousness is achieved with an open plan living scheme, complemented by light timber floorboards and 2.7m ceilings on the upper level. The lower level of the design has two minor bedrooms, one with a built-in-wardrobe. There is also a bathroom, laundry and living room.

"If there are teenagers living in the house, they can almost have a floor to themselves and give mum and dad some peace," Leanne says. "The floorplan is functional in that it is zoned with different bedroom areas". Stairs lead to an open kitchen, dining and living area on the upper level. The kitchen includes overhead cupboards and a breakfast bar, providing another casual eating place. Large sliding glass doors at the side and rear fill the floor with light and extend the living area to a corner balcony deck, which is large enough for an outdoor lounge and table setting, ideal for entertaining guests.

"It's just the most amazing home to take advantage of views, " Leanne says. "You can have balconies or decks on more than one aspect." "Here it's off the main living area and side but you can have the deck on the other side if that's where your view is." Off a small central hallway is a walk-in pantry providing ample storage space, while adjacent is the main, three-way bathroom. "The separation of the vanity, toilet and bathing area is very convenient if you've got guests in the house," Leanne says. Opposite this is another minor bedroom with built-in-wardrobe.

The main bedroom is at the front of the design, and includes a double built-in wardrobe and an open ensuite, again enhancing a feeling of space. "Something that is becoming more popular is the need for car parking and this design allows for parking under the second storey in the form of a carport."
