Billed as a contemporary retreat with global appeal, the Delano is Dale Alcock Homes’ flagship display this year and recently took out the Best Display Home $340,001-$370,000 category at the HIA COLORBOND steel Matt Perth Housing Awards.
Open at Treeby, this stunning four-bedroom, two-bathroom showcase brings together style, space and functionality.
The home boasts free-flowing living and entertaining areas, generous bedrooms and a host of features designed to make everyday living easy, according to Dale Alcock Homes Design and Drafting Manager John Care.
“The Delano sums up everything we love about modern family living,” he said.
“It’s packed with features and it’s light, bright and open, but with that welcoming warmth and character that makes you want to sit back, relax and spend time with family and friends.”
Perfect for a 15m-wide block, the Delano boasts an array of designer features, including a sunken home theatre, modern fireplace, high, raking ceilings and a stunning kitchen with larder and adjacent laundry.
“The living and dining area in the Delano is a standout,” Mr Care said.
“With its soaring ceilings and expanses of glass, it’s a beautiful light-filled space that is a pleasure to relax in.”
Big windows either side of the fireplace and sliding doors to the alfresco create a dual aspect that helps bring the outdoors in.
“It’s a room for all seasons, whether you’re opening up the doors to the garden and alfresco in the summer or getting cosy in front of the fire in the winter,” Mr Care said.
Functional family living is a priority in the Delano, especially in the heart of the home where the spacious kitchen, larder and laundry anchor the floor plan.
“Larders and scullery-style pantries are popular this year, as people like being able to hide cooking preparation from guests, keeping the main kitchen area clean and tidy,” Mr Care said.
The transition from the garage into the house is seamless, with space to put down bags and keys and easy access into the larder to drop off the shopping.
To one side of the kitchen is a functional open study that is perfect for children’s homework, home-based business ventures or simply jumping online to check emails.
At the end of a busy day you can retreat to the Delano’s luxurious master suite with its expansive dressing room and an incredible open ensuite featuring a double shower with a flush-mounted rainhead.
“We decided to really amp up the ambience in the master suite to create that opulent retreat so many homebuyers look for these days,” Mr Care said.
“Visitors to the display particularly love all the designer touches, as well as the way the house flows.
“We designed the floor plan so the front of the house is zoned for the parents and the back of the house for the kids.
“Running across the middle of the home is the wonderful shared living and entertaining space where everyone can come together and enjoy family time.”
The Delano is open to visitors Mondays and Wednesdays from 2-5pm, Saturdays from 1-5pm and Sundays from 12-5pm. It is also open by appointment on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
