The first display in New Generation Homes’ range to offer raked ceilings, the Iconic at Alkimos Beach was built to make a statement and certainly meets the brief.
The home is distinctive from the outset courtesy of industrially influenced features; exposed red brick makes an eye-catching appearance alongside stainless steel and an attractive feature window which showers light on the master suite.
Blurring the lines between outdoors and in, the raked ceiling of the verandah flows through to the master suite; a unique feature for a home of this price point and a milestone inclusion for the builder.
New Generation Homes Sales Manager Chris Hopkin said the striking features of the elevation came as standard when building the Iconic.
“Everything you see is included in the standard price of the home,” he said.
“The feature brickwork and the stainless steel piers anchoring the raked verandah frames the master suite. The sliding door and feature window with the double-sided glazed bar detail are also included as standard.”
The frontage is impressive, but the Iconic is far from a one-trick pony.
Practical in that it can be built on a 12.5m block and functional courtesy of its devotion to open-plan living and zoning between the master suite and minor bedrooms, this is very much a home built with flexibility in mind.
Through the entry passage, the study sits away from the main living space behind a stainless steel and glass privacy screen, offering a great spot for business at home without running the risk of interruption.
The kitchen – part of the main open-plan living space to the rear of the home – is a highlight which plays on the industrial themes hinted from the home’s doorstep.
“The industrial theme carries on through to the kitchen at the rear,” Mr Hopkin said. “This area is one of the most iconic we have delivered.
“The benchtop and shelving are all open and the same exposed brickwork detail is used here to tie the design together.
“It feels like you are in a cool bar or cafe and space is not a problem if you are entertaining, thanks to the huge scullery behind the main kitchen.”
Another feature perfect for the entertainer is the alfresco. Again framed by red brick walls, it is a nice space to enjoy the company of others and is accessible from the kitchen and living area.
Minor bedrooms sit in a flank on the opposite side of the study and separate home theatre, while the master suite’s ensuite and walk-in robe are a standout.
“It is a place that exudes calm and is a haven for busy parents from the second they get home,” Mr Hopkin said.
“The ensuite is reminiscent of a hotel room with a dedicated dressing area and a make-up area.”
An exemplary display with the potential to grow and adapt to the changing lifestyle of its occupants, the Iconic can be built as displayed for $229,990 with versions available from $196,200.
The home is open Mondays 2-5pm, Wednesdays 3-5pm, Saturdays and Monday public holidays 1-5pm and Sundays 12-5pm.
