Hamptons style meets comfort and practicality at Summit Homes' new four-bedroom, two-bathroom Manor display in Jindalee.
A home designed to stand out from the crowd, the Manor is defined by its raked ceilings to the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area and master suite, a central alfresco courtyard and a standout feature fireplace.
Amidst the opulence is a practical and functional home, offering clever zoning between sleeping spaces, slider cavities to completely hide barriers between rooms and the largest master suite of any home in the Summit Homes range.
Summit Homes sales manager Peter Chellew says the company looked to the Hamptons for inspiration when designing the Manor.
"The Manor plays homage to the big, stately homes that are popular in the Hamptons, and both the design and interior fit-out highlight that classic style that is so on trend right now," he says.
"The home exudes all the sophistication and luxurious style you would expect from a home inspired by the Hampton's indulgence and lavishness and it has garnered such a positive response in the short time it has been open.
"While it is a very strong influence, don't let the classic opulence fool you - this is a very modern four by two-and-a-half family home that balances the best in functionality, elegance and value for money."
The home's highlights are plentiful - the Hamptons influence is evident from the street in its mouldings to the eaves, glazing bars to the windows, piers with Archistone coastal cladding and a feature garage door.
"Inside, the grandeur continues in the main entertaining area with the galley-style kitchen flowing to the living, dining and outdoor zones," Peter says.
"This area has a uniquely inviting ambience under raked ceilings and is offset beautifully with a feature gas fireplace and mantle."
The raked ceiling makes a reappearance in the master suite - a huge space which offers the perfect place to retreat after a long day.
"The home has the biggest parents' retreat in our entire range, so privacy and pleasure are delivered all in one," Peter says.
"Plus the entire area soars under the raked ceilings, providing an abundance of space and light.
"We have opted to include a huge dressing room which takes the standard walk-in robe to the next level and will be sure to satisfy even the busiest of shoppers.
"The ensuite too is hotel-styled and features double vanities and a double hobless shower for the ultimate in everyday decadence."
The master is well away from the home's secondary bedrooms, which sit to the front of the home by the entry passageway and a home theatre.
"This home is redefining classical luxury and everyday style. It's a home you'll want to come home to and not want to leave," Peter says.
The Manor is available as displayed for $379,900 with versions starting from $208,600.
