Party Downstairs, Privacy Upstairs

Make the most of a narrow lot by creating a home that grows with your family.

Make the most of a narrow lot by creating a home that grows with your family.

The Boardwalk by Switch Homes offers plenty of space for families to enjoy together and separately, with open-plan living areas and separate study and activity rooms.

Switch Homes general manager Simon Greenlaw says when creating this home he wanted people to feel like their family could grow with the residence thanks to its diversity.

“Having a separate wing for bedrooms allows for a common area for living and a separate will-planned space for entertaining,” he says.

“At the front of the home the separate guest suite with its own ensuite and walk-in robe is perfect for a teenager’s retreat, guest bedroom or as an alternative master suite.”

High quality finishes can be found throughout the 370qm of internal living space, across two floors.
Porcelain floor tiles, high ceilings and LED downlights feature throughout, with integrated stainless steel appliances in the kitchen.

Taking in the home’s rear view, the open-plan kitchen is an entertainer’s delight, with a large scullery, walk-in pantry and cellar.

Cooking is a treat with two pyrolytic ovens, a 60cm gas cooktop, plus a 42cm teppanyaki plate and a build-in coffee machine.

“The freestanding Smeg oven takes pride of place and, coupled with the glass splashback and stainless steel rangehood, makes for a space all family members will enjoy cooking in,” Simon says.

Bi-fold doors open the living and dining area onto a large alfresco, making for perfectly integrated indoor and outdoor entertaining.

Downstairs you will find a separate study with feature viewing window into the main living zone and a guest suite at the front of the home, enjoying total seclusion.

The main bedroom wing sits upstairs, with the master separated from the minor bedrooms by a sitting room.
The master bedroom enjoys a luxury ensuite with double vanities and a freestanding bath, while two secondary bedrooms have an adjoining bathroom, separate toilet and walk-in robes.

“Housing the rooms together enables better use of space in key entertainment areas to the rear of the homes,” Simon says.

“Separating the master suite from the secondary bedrooms also allows for more privacy, not just from the traffic of the main living quarters, but also from guests and the children’s bedrooms and bathrooms.”

The Boardwalk display sits in the Cygina Cove estate, with its established riverside lifestyle.

The Swan River foreshore has been rehabilitated to a swan breeding ground and the estate features raised boardwalks and sheltered viewing arbours.

Designed a suit a range of lifestyles, the Boardwalk comes in a choice of different floor plans and specifications.
