Space to keep it casual

The focus is on entertaining in this easy-flow house, writes Jennifer Veerhuis

Entertaining guests is so much easier when there is plenty of room for them to move around. As its name suggests, The Entertainer makes the most of both its indoor and outdoor spaces.

A spacious kitchen and open-plan living and dining space take centre stage, opening to an outdoor area and allowing guests to wander freely between indoors and outdoors.

On display at Kellyville Ridge, this substantial home by McDonald Jones Homes is designed with families in mind, with four bedrooms, a double garage, home theatre and study all included in the floorplan.

At 12.75m wide, the house fits on a block with a minimum frontage of 14.58m. It is displayed with the Savoy facade, one of nine available.

The entry leads through to the living space and kitchen, where generous cupboard space, an island bench capable of seating up to four people, Smeg appliances and a walk-in pantry will delight dab hands in the kitchen.

A spacious home theatre with a TV recess is decked out to appeal to movie lovers, with a comfortable lounge illustrating the potential of the room.

Without a doubt, the optional outdoor areas, including the barbecue room and alfresco cabana show off the home’s potential.

Sliding doors from the living space and kitchen pull back to open up the house to this sizeable outdoor room and create a seamless link between indoors and outdoors.

For those with slightly sloping blocks, The Entertainer can be built with steps behind the garage and ensuite.

On entering the house, a spacious and private master suite is situated to one side, with a walk-in robe and ensuite with spa bath .

The three remaining bedrooms are ideal for children or teenagers and each includes a walk-in robe. These bedrooms all share the main bathroom, with a bathtub, shower and separate toilet.
