Inspiration and versatility drawn from resort-style living. By Carmelle Wilkinson
WITH a fresh layout, innovative design and resort-feel, it is no wonder Switch Homes’ latest display in Harrisdale is proving very popular among southern suburbs residents looking to rebuild.
Located in the Vertu Estate, Switcheight80 is appealing to homebuyers who want not just a home, but a retreat where they can escape to at the end of a busy day.
Switch Homes sales and marketing manager Lee Morris said the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home had a resort feel, with spacious living areas, high ceilings and plenty of natural sunlight.
“In keeping with the trend of people spending more time entertaining at home, both inside and outside, the Switcheight80 has the outdoor dining and kitchen area as its centrepiece which many residents are telling us they’re very keen on,’’ he said.
Mr Morris said the versatility of the Harrisdale display was also being well received.
“The home features some stud framed walls, which are capturing the imagination of people visiting it,” he explains.
“The beauty of strategically locating stud-framed walls in some areas of the home is that they can be removed, allowing for a new layout in the house at a future time.
“The desire for a fresh layout may be prompted by the arrival of a new baby, retirement or kids moving out of home.”
The master bedroom wing is also appealing to those valuing luxury.
Zoned to offer maximum privacy, it is generously sized and features a resort-style ensuite with his-and-her granite benchtops and oblong basins.
“It also joins to a study that extends to a private courtyard, again taking inspiration from some of the stunning resorts,’’ Mr Morris said.
Promoting functional living and entertaining spaces, the Switcheight80 is cleverly designed to create a natural flow from the entrance to the outdoor entertaining at the rear.
The display home is open for viewing on weekends and public holidays from 1pm to 5pm, and Monday and Wednesday from 2pm to 5pm.
Launched in June, 2009, Switch Homes for Living is an independent residential building company formed by leading WA construction and property group Pindan.n
