A coastal feel and relaxed style makes Sarah Homes' Grace 2 Storey a keeper
Sarah Homes is a go-to for holiday homes but this design is worthy of more than an occasional stay. The Grace 2-Storey is one to consider for your permanent residence. This two storey, five bedroom home has a coastal Cape Cod vibe clad in a mix of composite materials and makes a pleasant variation to the standard brick and render housing landscape. Spacious open-plan style, large windows for good light and a communal feel are what you'll find with this design.
With five bedrooms there's a room each for four children, which are grouped on the ground level and open to the central lounge room which also features a kitchenette. Uniform in design means everyone gets an equal space with built-in wardrobes and large picture windows for good light.
Upstairs, the master bedroom runs the full depth of the home and comes with a separate balcony, long ensuite and two-sided walk-in wardrobe. It provides mum and dad with a sense of privacy and space to call their own. Central on both levels are living areas: the rumpus downstairs and the lounge upstairs which opens to a large balcony creating a decent space to entertain in. To one end there's room for the dining table, while the galley-style kitchen sits behind it. A walk-in pantry and wall of storage, a long island bench with double sink and two points of entry to the kitchen allow good flow through this space.
A bench seat recessed nearby adds a point of difference and two sets of sliding doors provide easy access to the wide balcony. A bathroom on each level means there's a nearby amenity wherever you are, and with a separate toilet, vanity and bath/shower room downstairs, children will have no trouble getting ready at the same time.
