Making a bold statement with natural features and a gliding layout, the Baston by Impressions the Home Builder promotes coastal luxury in its finest form.
Impressions Executive General Manager Paul O’Donnell said the design was versatile to suit a range of budgets. “We wanted to showcase our craftsmanship through the Baston’s impressive finishes, but also have the flexibility to customise those finishes based on budget, which is why we offer a standard version of the Baston’s floor plan called the Anders,” he said.
Building homes for first homebuyers, young families, investors and upgraders since 1997, Impressions has drawn on its experience to inject creativity and innovation into the four-bedroom, two- bathroom Baston.
Wowing from the street with a timber- lined portico – the home’s class is further confirmed as you enter through its wide glass front doors. Raking ceilings continue through the home’s main entrance, with the master suite awaiting to whisk you away to resort- style bliss. Featuring a bold timber statement wall and walk-in robe, this zone is completed by an integrated ensuite consisting of a wide double vanity, freestanding bathtub and a large shower.
The children’s bedrooms are situated towards the front of the home, with the third and fourth bedrooms just across from the master suite.
A study nook just beyond the fourth bedroom offers a quiet sanctuary for homework, while the rumpus room towards the back of the home is the perfect place for play, especially as it connects with the outdoors. The gallery hallway leads into a sunken open-plan living area, where the high, pitched ceilings direct your gaze to column-free stacking glass doors and a spacious alfresco beyond.
The abundance of natural light courtesy of the towering windows makes this a bright and welcoming zone. Senior Designer Rommel Jay San Jose said the Baston exhibited harmony and flow from one zone to the next. “To achieve another level of luxury we added steps down to the living areas, making them more spacious and airy,” he said.
“The addition of the Glosswood-lined raking ceiling in the dining area flowing out to the alfresco provides an additional wow factor.”
Taking a slight step up to the U-shaped kitchen, you will find streamlined appliances and a scullery. A textural statement is provided with a glossy stone splashback. A breakfast bar rests at the front of the kitchen for casual dining, while a drinks area is great when entertaining.
Mr O’Donnell said creative solutions were important when designing new homes, as was close collaboration between the builder and the client. “We build for a variety of homebuyers and can tailor our designs to suit their budget and lifestyle,” he said.
“The one underlying factor that doesn’t change is our quality and our commitment to the client to build the very best home we can without compromise, whatever the budget, starting with the design and right through to construction.
“For instance, incorporating solar-passive design should be at the core of any design process, no matter the budget, for comfort, sustainability and affordability.”
The Baston is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 2-5pm, Saturdays from 1-5pm and Sundays and public holidays from 12-5pm.
