Living larger on a narrow block

Enjoy continuous uninterrupted space even if you live on a narrow lot thanks to Switch Homes’ expansive open-plan living in its new Soho design.

The free-form living and dining areas flow into an impressive gallery kitchen, creating a large space to relax or entertain. Dual bi-fold doors further extend the space onto two separate courtyards while 31-course ceilings make this space truly impressive.

Switch Homes General Manager Simon Greenlaw said that 9.3m corner block on Alfred Road presented a number of challenges in the creation of a good-sized family home.

“Switch Homes are specialists at maximising space on narrow and difficult lots,” he said.

“The Soho has been designed to use every inch of the block for modern living. We have capitalised on large bi-fold doors to provide an excellent indoor/ outdoor entertaining area from the kitchen, and with all bedrooms upstairs the kitchen/ living areas open up, with 31-course ceilings providing a wonderfully spacious feeling.”

The two-storey home also incorporates a laundry, powder room and hidden study on the ground floor, as well as a storage room off the double garage at the rear.

The kitchen is equipped with a scullery, a bonus luxury addition you may not expect to find on such a small block.

The scullery provides extra working space, in addition to the island bench in the kitchen, and is a great place to conceal dishes when guests are around.

Upstairs you’ll find three main bedrooms, including the master suite, which is separated from the other bedrooms by a second central living space.

“The master suite has a hotel feel with a walk-through robe with robe fit-out, and ensuite with full- height tiling,” Mr Greenlaw said.

The two minor bedrooms are both equipped with built-in robes, and sharp access to the main bathroom and second powder room upstairs.

For those eager for more storage space, custom cabinetry can be installed.

The home also presents a captivating street-front with its elevations and combination of render and face brickwork.

The alfresco space is cleverly situated alongside the entrance porch and enjoys street views in its own private, secluded space.

The Soho is open for viewing on Wednesday from 2-5pm and weekends from 1-5pm.
