Characterised by its raked ceilings to the master suite and open-plan living rooms, clever zoning and a central courtyard, the Manor is a home designed to stand out, according to Summit Homes Sales Manager Peter Chellew.
“Too often there are boxy-style homes for 15m blocks and this one well and truly breaks the mould,” he said.
“The central courtyard design lends itself to not only a talking point but functionality too.
“Separate and private retreats dominate at opposite ends of the home, and when togetherness calls everyone can combine in the heart of the home.
“Homebuyers looking for difference from a lot of offerings on the market will appreciate this design.”
The Hamptons influence is evident from the street, where the home stands out courtesy of its moldings to the eaves, glazing bars to the window, piers with stand-out Archistone cladding and a feature windowed garage door.
The grandeur flows into the home’s main entertaining area, where a galley-style kitchen connects seamlessly with the living, dining and outdoor zones beneath a raked ceiling and amidst the warmth of a feature gas fireplace.
The parents’ retreat is among the biggest in the Summit Homes display range, delivering privacy and room to relax in spades, while raked ceilings of its own open the room up further.
The suite includes a huge dressing room and luxurious ensuite with double vanities and a double shower. Cavity sliders which allow the doors between the rooms to disappear into the wall appear in the master suite, as well as the main living areas and home theatre.
Stacking doors divide the living area and outdoor alfresco, and also connect the home theatre to the outdoor space.
Mr Chellew said the design drew significant inspiration from the luxury of the Hamptons.
“The home exudes all the sophistication and luxurious style you’d expect from a home inspired by the Hamptons’ indulgence and lavishness, and in the short time it’s been open it has garnered such a positive response,” he said.
“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.”
