Creative approach for flow and flexibility

Flexibility, creativity and innovation are at the cornerstone of the Switcheight80, by Switch Homes for Living, in the Vertu estate, Harrisdale. Rammed-earth walls on the facade, a two-way glass fireplace in the living area and skylights in living rooms are features that add genuine interest. Lee Morris, from Switch Homes for Living, said the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home was ideal for a family with children heading into their teens with its open-plan, rear-living design. “This home is full of innovative design elements to give it a resort feel and we’ve included some fantastic modern extras that really set it apart from the rest,” Mr Morris said. “We’ve also made sure the popular Switch trademarks are included, like the great flow of the home, allowing for rooms to be ‘switched’ for different purposes as families evolve and grow.” The children’s zone is at the front of the home, with its own entry to three double bedrooms and a three-way bathroom. The main bedroom has a built-in make-up bench, a big walk-in robe behind the bed, and a big ensuite with separate vanities, essastone benchtops, above-bench basins, and the shower and toilet each behind glazed pivot doors. Opposite the main bedroom is a study with its own side access, and a cinema, both with cavity sliding doors. The two-way glass fireplace heats both the cinema and living area. Those who love entertaining will appreciate the open-plan living area and the kitchen which comes with granite benchtops, hand-manufactured cabinets, big island bench with pop-up power points, a walk-in pantry with fridge and freezer space, and built-in stainlesssteel appliances including a coffee machine and microwave. Dining and living rooms are on either side of the kitchen, so neither area becomes a walk-through. Double sliding doors open to the big alfresco area, which has a built-in stainless-steel kitchen and an outlook across the swimming pool and waterwise gardens.
