Urban Life says: “Step inside for a whole new level of easy living.”
Clever design touches add panache and practicality to the 36.83 squares of easy living that is the Hoffman Villa 37. The front sitting room provides a quiet space complemented by its Heat ‘N’ Glo fireplace with marble surround. Designed to overcome the issue of lower garage heights with sloping blocks, the split-level additions of a powder room, linen press and mudroom cleverly link the garage with the rest of the home. Equally memorable is the L-shaped laundry under the stairs. But the informal living domain is where the design shines brightest. Complete with a study nook to one side, the light-filled family living and dining zone opens to the chic al fresco via the living room. However, it’s the multifunctional island bench (breakfast bar, open shelving and storage) in the kitchen that catches the eye. Complemented by a picture window and bench placement that creates a boxed bay window effect, the kitchen is equipped with Fisher & Paykel appliances (integrated double fridge and freezer, five-burner gas cooktop, canopy rangehood, twin ovens), and adjoining butler’s pantry with another five-burner gas cooktop and open shelving. The open-tread timber staircase with glass balustrade ascends to a rumpus room and the full-width main suite at the front. The latter includes two sets of walk-in robe with hangings space and drawers, and the ensuite with twin-basin vanity, bath and separate toilet. The three secondary bedrooms, each with built-in robes, share a bathroom featuring a large shower with twin showerheads, single vanity and bath.
A popular option for Knockdown Rebuilds, the Hoffman Villa 37 is suitable for a 12.5m x 30m block. It is displayed at Tullamore Estate, Doncaster.
