Model anticipates trends

Built two years ago by Switch Homes as their prototype for the company’s popular Switcheight60 design, this home has versatility at its heart. Switch Homes’ Lee Morris said the design had proved a popular choice for couples and families looking for an affordable lifestyle home. “The Switcheight60 was designed for the evolution of a family from the tots to the teen years,” he said. “The floor plan displays a versatility that moves through a family’s life cycle. The theatre room near the master suite, for instance, could be a nursery early in the family’s life cycle when the children are infants, and it later becomes a home theatre for the teens and the rest of the family. “It’s a high-specification design that is still very practical. We like to think this home displays the Switch philosophy of creating designs that anticipate trends and lifestyle choices — we adapt our models to represent those changes. It has been very appealing to growing families.” The home’s landscaped facade is punctuated by a tiled granite blade wall that continues into the entrance hall. The heart of the home is a very modern open-plan kitchen — complete with servery window and glass-panelled cabinets — and dining and family room. Floating timber floors are featured throughout the living areas, including the spacious and private home theatre. The main bedroom is more like a wing of the house than a room, with its extra large robe and spacious ensuite, and sits alongside the home theatre. The ensuite features double basins and an oversized shower. The home is located in the developing Belvedere Estate, where local shopping centres and schools are being constructed nearby.
