Fittings & Fixtures
Our kitchens are manufactured by a local cabinet maker to ensure the custom kitchen is designed and fitted with precision with quality laminates. Bench tops are manufactured from the Talastone range of stone tops.
The drawers in our kitchens all use Blaum soft close systems, considered the best quality available.
A double bowl, under bench kitchen sink is also used to provide your kitchen with a functional and modern style.
Bedroom Robes, Linen & Laundry Cupboards
The bedrooms (without walk in robes) have robes manufactured by a local cabinet maker. They are constructed using quality laminates with shelves, hangers and solid backs.
The same quality standard is used for the linen and laundry cupboards.
Wall hung vanities are used in the ensuite and bathroom with stone tops.
Bathroom and Ensuite
The bathroom and ensuite have walls tiled to the ceiling to provide a long lasting finish for walls exposed to moisture. The finished look is also very appealing.
Tapware and accessories
Mixers are used throughout the home – bathroom, ensuite, kitchen and laundry. Matching soap dishes, towel rails and robe hooks are installed in both the ensuite and bathroom.
The entry, halls, toilet, laundry, kitchen, pantry, dining and living areas have tiled floors.
Bedrooms and lounge areas are finished with carpet flooring.
External portico and alfresco areas and also tiled to provide a great style to your outside areas.
Hot Water Service
You will never run out of hot water as our homes have Rheem Metro 26L gas continuous flow water heaters. These have a 6 star energy efficiency rating so your hot water will also cost less.
To help keep you power bills down we have as a minimum, R2.5 level insulation batts in the walls and R3.0 in the ceilings.
Aspect and footprint on Lot
This is the single most important factor for any home and one we take extremely seriously.
Our homes are designed to take advantage of the lots width and aspect to the North. The combination means better located living areas that take advantage of the sun, naturally warming your home in winter and keeping it cooler in summer. It also maximizes the usability of the lot for your backyard and garden.
Our ceilings are 2550 high (8’ 6” in the old scale) to give your home a sense of space. It is one of those things you will appreciate over the life of your home.
Everyone wants peace of mind when it comes to termites in their home. Our homes have a termite barrier and the wall frames have been treated to prevent termites.
Access to tradespeople
The designer and all the tradespeople are local. If you have a problem with your home they are local, able to get to your home quickly and easily and proud of their long reputation for delivering quality.
Heating & Cooling
Ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning
Ducted, efficient reverse cycle air conditioning is used in this home to provide comfort all year round. The system has been sized to ensure the whole home can be heated or cooled simultaneously and the system was selected for its energy efficiency.
Ceiling fans have been used in various rooms to enhance the ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning system and provide a cheaper to run cooling system on days that don’t need the air conditioning turned on.
Using the Z-Wave platform, we have a centralised home automation controller that allows you to remotely control a variety of devices and equipment in your home. We have connected the living room lights and your front door bell to start you off but can automate many other facets in your home for relatively little cost.
An electronic doorbell and video camera is setup so that you can be notified on your phone if anyone rings your doorbell.
USB Charging Ports
Selected locations have a combined Double Power and USB charging ports to allow you to charge your mobile phone and tablet with just your cable.
NBN & Network Ready
We install a power outlet and network socket near the main switch board along with a conduit for the Fibre Optic NBN cable. This will give you the highest quality fibre optic NBN connection right to your house. Network sockets have been installed in each bedroom and living room and in a central location to control them. It allows a quick, cost effective, cable based high speed internet connection throughout the home. You can still use wireless but have permanent devices (such as smart TV’s) connected via network cable for performance and reliability.
A secure parcel box has been included allowing you to have parcels delivered securely to your home even when you are not there
Landscaping with automatic irrigation
Your landscaping will be completely finished and ready to be enjoyed the day you move in. We have turf rolled out, garden beds built, the backyard perimeter planted with a lush screening plant and feature plants and trees to your front garden.
All of this landscaping is then automatically irrigated with a computer controlled irrigation system controlling an underground sprinkler system. Set what you want to water and how often and it will do the rest.
The computer controller is accessible from a phone app allowing you to change the automatic program wherever you. At work and you see it starting to rain, just select the option to turn it off.
Driveways and Footpaths
It may sound obvious but we have found we need to mention this – your driveway and footpaths around the house will be concreted and finished. Nothing else to do.
A colorbond fence will be installed as part of your home purchase. The fence will include the rear boundary, and side boundaries up to the front facade of your home.
Where possible, we have provided the vehicle access to your backyard with a rear roller door. Not all lot/home designs allow for this.
