When our client wanted to build a modern, eco-friendly investment property in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, a custom-designed modular home ticked all the boxes.
To create this stylish three-bedroom home, our design team worked from a detailed brief provided by the client, using the Homestead 2 as starting point to customise the floor plan, fittings and finishes to suit the location and block.
The master bedroom is situated for privacy at the rear of the home and includes an ensuite and walk-in robe. It also features sliding door access to the verandah, which makes it easy to slip out and enjoy a peaceful moment outside. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are located opposite the main bathroom at the front of the home and bedroom 3 also has sliding door access to the verandah for convenience.
The raked ceilings and large windows of the living zone give the space a bright, breezy and modern look and feel, and while the space is predominately open plan, there is a central wall that provides some separation between the kitchen and lounge.
The outdoor decking can be accessed through sliding doors on either side of the room, which connects the space and allows for seamless transitions between indoors and out.
Kitchen & Bathrooms
The generous-sized kitchen include an electric induction cooktop, and both the kitchen and bathrooms feature stone benchtops.
Façade & Exterior
Outside, the Dutch gable façade and wraparound verandah adds character and a timeless appeal that blends well into the established neighbourhood. Weathertex cladding adds the double benefit of an attractive finish that is durable and low maintenance.
Additional sustainability features of this stunning home include Himalaya Hillary 100% PET recycled carpet, ultra-high-performance double-glazed window units, energy efficient reverse cycle heating/cooling and rainwater tank for toilets and gardening.
The strong focus on sustainability is evident in this beautiful modular home and it is the right blend of style and comfort to suit a modern family lifestyle. The total cost for this project was approximately $330,000.
