With a functional layout, spacious, open-plan living zone and big bedrooms for every occupant, Celebration Homes’ Bardot display home is squarely targeted at families with children.
The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home at Honeywood Estate in Wandi — named in honour of actress and environmental campaigner Brigitte Bardot — boasts more than 220sqm of living space, including a separate study, home theatre, alfresco area and computer nook.
In the main living zone, the kitchen, dining area and family room share a long and broad space topped by a raised ceiling and linked to the alfresco area by a glazed sliding door.
Sales manager Stuart Jeffs said the versatile and practical Bardot display home was well suited to families with young children or teenagers.
“The main living zone provides a spacious open layout that flows out to the alfresco area, and the home cinema is located centrally in this design, which increases the amount of living space to the centre of the home, ” Mr Jeffs said.
“Avid chefs will love the combination galley and corner kitchen, featuring a huge walk-in pantry for ample storage, Caesarstone benchtops and 900mm Westinghouse stainless-steel oven, hotplate and range hood with tiled splashback as standard.
“The laundry is located next to the kitchen, providing further bench and storage space when required.”
In the kitchen, a long island bench with a breakfast bar on its outside edge separates the meal-preparation area from the adjacent dining area. Cooking appliances are below two small square windows against a side wall, and the fridge recess is tucked between the walk-in pantry and the laundry.
The theatre room is to the left of the living zone, on the other side of a central thoroughfare, and is within easy reach of the kitchen for topping up popcorn or soft-drink supplies.
Bedrooms are zoned to separate adults and children, with the main suite at the front of the house, next to the open study, and three minor bedrooms in a wing at the back, around a streamlined computer nook and the main bathroom.
The main suite has a spacious sleeping area, a dressing area between two walk-in robes, and an open ensuite with square countertop basins on a broad vanity unit, corner shower with pivoting screen door and separate toilet.
“Toward the back of the home, the children’s bedrooms are brought together by a computer nook, which allows the kids to entertain themselves or study independently, ” Mr Jeffs said.
“Parents can still keep an eye on the kids, with the inclusion of an aperture window that provides a direct view into the kids’ zone from the kitchen, family and dining rooms.”
Each double minor bedroom has a single built-in robe, and the computer nook includes a broad recess for built-in desks.
The bathroom has a standard layout that works well, and there’s a walk-in linen cupboard in this wing.
From the street, the Bardot display home has a contemporary yet timeless look, including neutral rendered walls, big windows, a double garage with modern panelled door, and a central veranda to shade the front door.
The Bardot display home is open Monday & Wednesday 2 - 5pm, Saturday & Public Holidays 1 - 5pm, Sunday 12 - 5pm or at alternative times by appointment.
