The unique facade of the Beaulieu display home, built by Platinum Homes is just the beginning with this fantastically functional family home.
With a mix of texture, strong architectural lines and concealed flat roof, the Beaulieu by Platinum Homes would make an impression on any street. There’s a strong flavour of commercial architecture represented in this home design. Elements like the garage door cladding using alucobond which is typically used in commercial construction. The polished concrete-look render to the entry portico pier, which could go unnoticed as it’s a subtle but important element in the design. Or the concrete brickwork in feature walls and panels used both inside and out.
Walking from the garage around to the side entry allows you to take in the feature panels of the home and the clean corbel lines. You’ll also enjoy the simple Australian landscaping with clever positioning of a plant wall and railway sleepers standing vertically out of the ground. The porch and entry feel private, being set back from the typical front position of most homes, creating some intimacy before entering.
Platinum Homes Designer Parisa Soltani says “the Beaulieu uses a language that carries through from the outside to the inside with the interplay of the voids and feature design elements”.
To the front of the home is a home office featuring double doors and views to the front and side garden. There’s also a media room, which could easily be converted into a 4th bedroom or guest room if needed. A feature concrete brick wall compliments the external design and continues from the ground to the upper floor defining the staircase.
Then when you enter the open plan living area the ceiling shoots up making the living spaces a light, spacious area adding more architectural features like the horizontal highlight windows that straddle the external alfresco ceiling with the stacker doors below.
“Layering of spaces with varying heights and volumes is a big feature in this home. The freeform living with the extended high ceilings also lifts your spirit as you enter” says Parisa. “Zoning is also an important feature of today’s homes, which can be seen with the five separate zones being; the parents upstairs retreat, the main open living area, the media room, children’s activity and the outdoor alfresco and garden.”
The kitchen area is simply stunning, with an extended benchtop which acts as a tabletop, a separate cooking area and a large scullery behind.
The minor bedrooms are in a dedicated zone at the rear right side of the home and include an activity area which also leads outside to the alfresco. Each bedroom includes a spacious study area with a window at desk height between the room and walk in robe – a great innovation in design for modern living.
Upstairs is what really spoils the home owners, with their own dedicated retreat and balcony which acts as a haven after a long day at work or with the kids. The master bedroom is separated by double cavity sliding doors and includes a great sized dressing room and ensuite. The ensuite features a freestanding bath with a walk around shower behind a three quarter high wall.
The Beaulieu display home by Platinum Homes sells for $750,000 with a starting base price of $509,914
