The Hartley, a new display home from Impressions The Home Builder, is all about fitting as much as you can into a narrow space.
“It is designed to fit blocks with a 10.5-metre frontage, making it a great solution for those looking to downsize on a narrow lot whilst retaining quality and comfort,” Impressions The Home Builder Executive General Manager Paul O’Donnell said.
“The Hartley is also perfect for those looking to build an affordable home in a great location with a contemporary and low-maintenance home design,” he said.
Using sound design principles, the builder has managed to fit an impressive amount of space into the house.
“The Hartley’s functional layout demonstrates how you can maximise the space of a narrow lot without compromising on comfort,” Mr O’Donnell said.
“Each area has its own dedicated space yet feels connected to the rest of the home.
“One of the main considerations when designing a narrow lot floorplan is to ensure the internal areas receive plenty of natural light, making them feel spacious and comfortable.
“Full-height windows, direct alfresco access from the dining area plus the window splashback in the kitchen combine to maximise natural light.”
The home flows easily from the entrance to the main living areas. Cool natural tones in the living room enhance the sense of spaciousness while a beautiful feature brick wall adds depth and character.
The kitchen has a long island bench, separate breakfast nook as well as ample storage and space for a large fridge. Sliding doors open to the cosy alfresco area in the backyard, perfect for entertaining friends or relaxing outside in the beautiful glow of the summer evenings as the sun sets.
Mr O’Donnell said the narrow design of the home did not necessitate a compromise on the number of bedrooms.
The Hartley boasts an impressive three- bedroom, two-bathroom design, with the master bedroom in the front and the other two rooms located at the back. There is a study at the front of the house with a view of the front garden.
The master suite is a perfect sanctuary away from the chaos of life. The walk-in wardrobe and spacious ensuite, double vanity and a generously sized shower add more layers of comfort to the main bedroom.
The minor bedrooms are the ideal size for children but still have enough room for extra storage and a computer desk. Located in this area with the main bathroom and laundry is a nook for clothes and space for storage.
From the street, the front of the home is a creative venture in colour and design. A stunning and rugged feature brick wall juxtaposed against a smooth surface in deep grey tones is quite the attention- grabber.
For those with green thumbs, the garden area in front offers plenty of room to plant up a storm.
With luxury inclusions such as Smeg 900mm stainless steel appliances, the beautiful and durable Essastone benchtops in the kitchen and bathroom and high ceilings throughout, this home is compact but grand.
The Hartley is located in Brabham and is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 2-5pm, Saturdays from 1-5pm and Sundays and public holidays from 12-5pm.
