Celebration Homes’ new display, the Oliver, is a testament to how a narrow lot doesn’t necessarily equal compromise.
“It’s simply a lot of home for a 12.5m-wide lot,” ABN Group Managing Director Dale Alcock said.
“The kitchen is awesome and the wrap-around design that links the kitchen to the laundry via a scullery is really practical and shows great design at work.”
Celebration Homes Designer Michael Dos Santos agreed the kitchen was a standout.
“It was a challenge to fit all the features within this area, but it feels so comfortable when you walk throughout the home,” he said.
“I love the dining booth that Sally, our interior designer, created for us opposite our island bench.
“The goal for this design was to incorporate a breakfast bar island bench, scullery, walk-in pantry and laundry connection within this restricted space.
“I didn’t have enough space for brickwork nibs in the scullery, which is why the reversed corner benchtop was introduced.”
Upon entering the home, you are greeted by a cosy home cinema – a great spot to sit back and relax.
Continuing down the hallway, the master suite is situated in its own corner for an extra touch of privacy and includes large walk-in robe and a luxurious ensuite featuring a double semi-inset vanity basin, Caesarstone benchtop and a double-sized shower.
Towards the back of the home three secondary bedrooms sharetheir own corner, with a bathroom and separate toilet.
“There is great entertaining potential in the Oliver,” Mr Dos Santos said.
“There is a large bench across the back of the dining area to provide extra seating to guests, and this really highlights that this home was built for entertaining.
“The Oliver is a home that speaks to myself, a 26-year-old who likes to entertain, but at the same time it provides the necessities for a growing family, such as three minor rooms, a home theatre and a study nook within view of the kitchen.”
Mr Alcock said the small lot provided a wealth of efficient design ideas.
“When you’re designing homes for smaller lots, the critical thing is the efficient and effective use of the available space,” he said.
“Truly great design is an outcome of taking these challenges and coming up with an appealing home that fits the way people want to live and, at the same time, links internal and external living spaces.”
The display is open Mondays from 2-5pm, Wednesdays from 2-7pm, Saturdays and public holidays from 1-5pm and Sundays from 12-5pm.
