Star of the street has an edgy look

Bold horizontal and vertical lines in windows, timber-look tiling and a feature steel girder give the Switcheight90 display, by Switch Homes for Living, an edgy contemporary look and plenty of street appeal.

Inside, the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home at Lakelands Estate is equally impressive, with a streamlined and sophisticated layout to accommodate the changing needs of a growing family, and a living zone that has the “wow factor” in abundance.

A highly functional and visually appealing kitchen is at the hub of the design, overlooking the open-plan living and dining areas, which have seamless connections to the alfresco area and home theatre.

Bedrooms are zoned to give adults and children ample privacy, with the main suite at the front.

Sales and marketing manager Lee Morris said the understated luxury of the home was perfect for families at any stage of life.

“The Switcheight90 has some stud framed walls incorporated into its design and these can be moved to alter the layout of the house if, for example, the time to retire arrives,” Mr Morris said.

The main living zone is on a grand scale, yet feels even bigger due to the dramatic raised and raking ceiling above the dining area and living room.

Mr Morris said the volume of the living areas was one of the best features of the home.

“The kitchen is a stand-out feature as it accentuates the continuous flowing space of the entire home.

“It has a long bench that’s ideal for side-by-side cooking and dining, and bold use of colour complements the stone benchtops and custom-built cabinets.”

Sleek built-in cabinets create an internet zone or bar area at one end of the kitchen, and there’s a huge walk-in pantry at the other end.

In the front wing, the main suite has a spacious sleeping area, fitted walk-in robe and classy ensuite, in which a vertical cabinet with glass shelves looks great next to the broad vanity unit.

The study and a spacious theatre room are also in this part of the home. At the back of the house, each minor bedroom has a built-in robe with wood-grain doors, and a threeway walk-through bathroom has semi-ensuite access from two of the three bedrooms
