Sunday Mail featuring The stunning Brampton
A Custom - built home at an affordable price point is a dream many of us would like to fulfil. Adding your personality into a design, so you can live how you and your family want, is something that should always be considered. One of the latest display homes to open at Evanston South, The Brampton by Rendition Homes is a custom design inspired by the needs of clients who want to blend luxury with affordability, says Rendition's marketing co-ordinator Juri Pali."Our customers wanted an affordable, luxury, custom facade and, based on their initial feedback, we feel that we have certainly achieved all the above, " she says.
Starting from $200,000, this four- bedroom, two bathroom design has a spacious footprint of 268.93 sqm, and with 2.7m ceilings, it creates a home with a fabulous sense of space. "From the moment you walk through the front door, you get a delightful feel about the home," Juri says. "Having raised 3m ceiling to the entry area, it gives you the sense of space, and as an added feature on the left is the home theatre room with a dropped bulkhead."
Perfect as a first, second or third home for families, The Brampton offers a mix of luxurious finishes, good balance and clever thinking. And in keeping with this mantra, the home's six-star rating, the use of insulation and LED lighting throughout and north-facing living areas, means it's a sustainable home for ongoing living.The Brampton's front exterior is a good example of the luxurious touches in the home. Half the front has been rendered in Solver's Cafe au Lait, and the other half has elegant travertine stone tiles, which give it a high-end look. This level of style continues inside through the entry and into the combined family/meals and kitchen zone. This will be a conventional space for social occasions as the layout encourages easy dining and the space opens out through wide doors to the alfresco area.
A dropped bulkhead defines the long galley-style kitchen, which features a bank of cupboards in a fresh, white gloss with a glossy black splash back for impact, and stainless steel appliances. For contrast, a woodgrain laminate in a sublime Teak Riven is used on the island bench and finished with a 20mm Smartstone bench top in Merengo. Topping it all off is a huge walk-in-pantry with access to the double garage. "Once you've passed the entry, you walk into the open living area. The kitchen is truly a feature point," Juri says."As visitors walk through and enter the main living area, they are truly amazed. They love the space, the size and look of the kitchen. They really love the butler's pantry and how the access from the double garage is straight into the pantry".
Not to be forgotten are the bedrooms, three of which feature high, long windows for privacy and security, and all have wardrobes. "The bedrooms are of a decent size to allow for desks in the children's bedrooms, and having two living areas for families always works well," Juri says.
At the front of the home, the spacious master suite has an extra-large walk-in robe, and a stunning ensuite with double vanities and a large double shower. (Trudy Oram)
