When visiting a brand new show house focused at households, there’s two issues that sit excessive on my precedence listing: storage and adaptability.
Households with kids will know the significance of getting a versatile house floorplan and sufficient storage options to assist dad and mom hold up to the mark.
It was for these causes I used to be impressed with Statesman Houses’ Glengowrie Alfresco, which is a brand new house on show at Miravale property, at Angle Vale. This four-bedroom, two-bathroom, double storage design provides households an abundance of storage, all with a beneficiant sprint of up to date luxurious.
Statesman Houses’ design director Ruth Vagnarelli says this new design is the right alternative for households with younger kids proper the way in which by to youngsters.
“The Glengowrie Alfresco is designed for households who need loads of room to unfold out, areas for entertaining, chilling out and a contact of luxurious,” she says.
Designed to go well with a conventional sized allotment, the Glengowrie Alfresco measures 16m extensive and 18.78m deep, and Ruth says it should go well with quite a lot of places, from coastal blocks by to suburban allotments.
Its stylish modern facade with extensive, glossy horizontal home windows in black frames, crisp neutral-tone render, a blade wall and heat timber accents is an attractive begin to this go to.
Strolling into the Glengowrie Alfresco, off the principle corridor you might be greeted with a dad and mom’ zone which might be closed off from the remainder of the home, additional again. This entrance part contains a beneficiant master bedroom, full with a ‘his and hers’ walk-in wardrobe and a protracted, spacious ensuite, whereas throughout the corridor is a comfortable carpeted house theatre/dad and mom’ lounge.
The Miravale show showcases a built-in wall-to-wall cupboard within the house theatre, a intelligent method so as to add glossy storage to the house.
Ruth says whereas this function will not be a regular inclusion, it has change into a well-liked improve possibility for brand new house patrons.
On the coronary heart of this household house is the second dwelling zone, comprising the kitchen, meals and household dwelling areas. It’s a big, communal house with home windows and doorways on two sides and can be a fantastic space to take pleasure in with household and mates. All through the show, aside from bedrooms and the entrance lounge, tiles on the ground hold the weekly clear as low upkeep as doable, whereas ample cabinets hold family stuff out of sight.
The central kitchen on this house will impress, particularly when you’re a eager entertainer, full with a protracted, extensive island bench, a beneficiant walk-in pantry and a client’s entry direct from the double storage.

A second hallway off the household space leads by to a good-size examine/house workplace, three additional bedrooms and the principle toilet and laundry. That is the place the Glengowrie Alfresco actually proves it’s a household design, providing two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and one with a walk-in wardrobe. There are additionally built-in cabinets within the hallway for all of the requirements.

Whereas it is a fully sensible house, what offers it the sting is that Statesman have additionally made it fascinating with an expensive inside (that all of us need in our houses), with a alternative of finishes, supplies and decor that present reasonably priced houses can be fashionable and lavish, with out the high-end price ticket.
The crisp off-white inside is softened by ashy timber cabinetry and given a recent edge with the addition of glossy, black window frames all through.
“The impartial inside palette of off-white partitions and light-weight flooring creates a soothing environment and lend themselves to a variety of adorning concepts,” Ruth says.
