A modern elevation that includes a granite blade wall which extends into the entry is a feature of the Switch eight60 display in Wanneroo.

Switch Homes for Living sales and marketing manager Lee Morris said the home was designed to be a sanctuary for the family.

“This is a home in which lives can grow while enjoying the spaces together and with areas for privacy,” Mr Morris said.

“All our homes are designed with a wide demographic in mind and our design dynamic provides spaces that can grow with the family.

“For example, a young family living in the Switch eight60 would be able to use the home theatre to the front of the home as a nursery near the main suite.

“This may become a hobby or craft room for empty nesters.”

The front door is sheltered under a porch and the entry hall extends past the kitchen to the living area.

A big cinema room at the front of the home has sliding double doors, a coffered ceiling and a recess for a television and cabinetry.

The main suite is generously proportioned and has a glass sliding door to a private courtyard. The big walk-in robe has, as well as the usual shelf and rail, a set of shelves with a triple sliding door that does away with the need for a chest of drawers.

The ensuite has a vanity with two basins, a big shower and separate toilet. At the front of the home are a walk-in linen cupboard, the laundry and a study with a sliding-door entry from the hall. It is close to the kitchen so parents can supervise children doing homework.

The open-plan living area has the kitchen at one end, living space at the other and the dining table in between.

Big windows are in abundance and along with double glass sliding doors, provide natural light and views to the garden. The alfresco area has room for seating and a dining setting, as well as a barbecue recess next to a servery from the kitchen.

The well-appointed kitchen has a big pantry that could double as a scullery. An island bench doubles as a breakfast bar and the benchtops are of essa stone. An L-shaped bench against the back wall includes the oven, gas cooktop and range hood.

The three double-sized minor bedrooms are in a separate wing and share a bathroom with a bath, separate toilet and big linen cupboard. Each bedroom has a built-in robe with double sliding doors.

The Switch eight60 has a living space of 212sqm and a total area of 288sqm.

It would suit a block with a minimum size of about 500sqm and requires a 16.71m frontage.
