When you decide to build a home you need to be thinking about your life now as well as how your situation will look like years down the track.
Whether you already have children or are planning to start a family, a home needs to be flexible and be able to adapt to your changing circumstances.
The Sundara display from New Generation Homes provides a versatile design that is well equipped to work as both a home for today, tomorrow and the prosperous years to come.
Described as a "big home with a big future" by Summit Homes Group general manager metropolitan Tony Harvie, the Sundara showcases four bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as many areas where each member of the family can slip away to or come together as one.
"It is a very liveable home that work for today's homebuyer and equally as well in the years to come," he says.
"It's a design that grows and evolves with you, just as your tastes and circumstances change."
At the front of the home lies a master suite big enough for a king and queen.
One of the biggest master bedrooms in the New Generation Homes range, the suite includes an oversized walk-in robe, colossal ensuite and enough room to display a luxurious chaise lounge next to the window.
Just down the hall you will find a home theatre room and a dedicated home office which could double as a nursery, should a bundle of joy enter your lives.
The study has been buffered perfectly by the garage meaning ambient street noise will be kept to a minimum - perfect for a sleeping baby or a mountain of work, depending on how you choose to use the space.
At the back of the home a contemporary open-plan living, dining and kitchen space bares all as an entertainer's dream.
Showcasing a central island bench, the kitchen is the perfect place to stop and chat before venturing out the glass sliding doors to the covered alfresco space.
Last by certainly not least is the children's wing, which gently hugs the hub of the home.
With three bedrooms and a centrally located bathroom and separate toilet, just like the parents, the kids have their own space they can retreat to and bask in their own company.
A design that is completely adaptable to anything life throws at you, Tony says the Sundara is a home for everyone.
"The zoning of the home works well and when put together it simply walks well," he says.
"Parents have their retreat at the front and entertainment and younger children are catered for at the back of the home."
