With a practical scullery off the kitchen, servery window to the alfresco area, resort-style main suite and purpose-built theatre room, the Switcheight30, by Switch Homes for Living, has appeal across a broad range of homebuyers. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home at Settlers Hills, in Baldivis, can now only be viewed by appointment but was previously a popular inclusion in the Switch range of display homes. Sales and marketing manager Lee Morris said the home had a particularly versatile layout, with five different standard versions available, from the three-bedroom layout through to a six-bedroom version. Mr Morris said the design’s versatility one of the home’s best features, along with the kitchen with walkthrough scullery linked to the laundry, and the private main suite with luxurious ensuite. The main living zone is a spacious, open-plan area with the kitchen at its hub, and the living and dining area along one side, connected through glazed doors to a big alfresco area at the back. The dining area has full-height glazed windows and doors in the back corner, for a visual connection to the alfresco area and back garden, and the living area has vertical windows framing a broad media recess at the side. In the kitchen, a long island bench with breakfast bar overlooks the surrounding rooms and alfresco area, and a parallel row of cabinets and drawers houses the stainless-steel cooking appliances. A sliding door at one end opens to the scullery or preparation area, linked to the laundry, and a servery at the other end has extra cabinets. Cavity sliding doors open to the theatre room to the left of the entry hall. It has a raised and recessed ceiling, ample space for seating and a broad window in the side wall. The main suite has five vertical windows to brighten and ventilate the sleeping area, a deep walk-in robe, and a classy ensuite with a double vanity in front of a wall that screens the shower and toilet recesses. There are two good-sized minor bedrooms in a separate wing off the kitchen, each with a two-door builtin robe. One bedroom has semi-ensuite access to the main bathroom. From the street, dark face bricks are used for feature walls in the front and side elevations, linked by a horizontal steel girder, creating an attractive contrast to the rendered walls and uncluttered Colorbond roof.
