On today’s slimmer blocks, a feeling of space can help create an air of luxury and comfort. Combine this with an impressive list of features and finishing touches and you have the Boardwalk, the new flagship display by Switch Homes.

“I think the common theory has been small block, small house. What we’re showcasing is that even on a small lot we can give you a great functional home that feels incredibly spacious,” says Damian Monteleone, Switch sales and marketing manager.

Wide passages, extra-tall doors, wider than standard stairs, high ceilings upstairs and down, floating bathroom cabinetry, a double storey void, and generous room sizes and storage areas help to create that all important feeling of space in this Waterford showcase. The study even includes a silicone-jointed internal corner window to draw the eye away from the physical boundaries.

When it comes to deluxe fixtures, fittings and finishes, the Boardwalk has that covered too. There are stone tops in the kitchen, laundry, powder rooms and bathrooms, frameless glass shower screens, a freestanding tub in the ensuite, fitted wardrobes and a bar/buffet in the kitchen.

With its smooth contemporary styling, the kitchen has all the bells and whistles; a glass splash back, crisp white cabinetry and a high-end textured laminate that looks and feels like veneer.

The building has also added appliances by Scholtes, with twin ovens, a gas burner with the new Planar Technology, a separate teppanyaki plate, and a built-in coffee maker and coffee machine in the scullery.

Damian says the Boardwalk offers supreme flexibility, with different layouts and specifications already drawn up to meet a number of different needs, budgets and block sizes.

The guest suite, for example, could easily be used as a theatre room, activity room or home office, or it could become the master bedroom for those who want keep all key areas on the ground floor. This is a great swap for buyers thinking about how their two-storey will work in the long term.

The Boardwalk can be built from $347,990, with four floor plans and four price points in total, plus a choice of four elevations covering contemporary as displayed, cubist, skillion and traditional.
