Reefsea Homes – The Point Display Home
The Point is a new design from Gary and Chris Metcalfe and it combines many of the great features of their previous homes to provide householders the best of what is the Gold Coast lifestyle.
Right from the get go, this house is packed with beautiful, and practical features. Upon approaching the vaulted portico entry with the timber lined ceiling and recycled timber feature posts, you notice the tiled external wall to the garage and a feature corner window to the adjacent bedroom to the other side. When you enter through the oversized pivot door you are welcomed with very high ceilings, and your gaze is straight away taken through the core of the home to the marvellous outdoor entertaining area, allowing terrific cross ventilation for those balmy summer days.
From the entry, there is a study to one side and beyond that is a hall with ample space and linen storage leading to two bedrooms and a bathroom and toilet suite, all beautifully appointed with the latest in contemporary fittings and finishes.
In the front bedroom of this particular display home is the corner feature window, as seen from the portico, creating an inviting ambience with plenty of light and airiness. The glazing has been cleverly thought out to minimise road noise due to its proximity to the front boundary, and the busy main road, whilst still allowing good ventilation. Included in this room is a built-in desk, within a nook to the front, helping to make what would normally be a standard room one of the great features of this home. In between this bedroom and the next, sits a large bathroom with the latest style in tiles and fittings, and a generous shower recess, eliminating the need for any glass screens, in turn limiting the amount of cleaning required.
Back to the entry, and as we walk through the house toward the rear entertaining area, we can pass through the media room with staged flooring to accommodate auditorium style seating and oversized commercial style cavity sliders. These sliders allow us to shut off the outside world and be engulfed in movie escapism. This room could also be easily adapted to suit the homeowners own lifestyle requirements and be re-imagined as a formal dining or second lounge perhaps, it just depends on the individuals own needs.
Walking around the media room takes us past the well-appointed laundry with built in linen and storage cupboards, long work bench and overhead cabinets.
Past the laundry is a powder room and then the whole rear of the home opens to the kitchen, meals and family room. The kitchen has been cleverly arranged with an angled island bench to maximise the outdoor views. In the case of the Display Home this includes a pool overlooking the canal which can be seen through large commercial entertaining sliding doors. When opened these large doors recess into the wall cavity on either side. As part of the kitchen there is a study nook with overhead cupboards for those everyday papers, bills and odds and ends we all seem to accumulate. There is also a butler’s pantry helping the kitchen to remain free from clutter. The kitchen has its own glass sliding door out onto the outdoor entertaining area with a built-in barbecue bench. The large glass panels and splash back window allow plenty of light into the kitchen, further enhancing the openness of the large entertaining heart of the home.
Adjoining the entertaining space is the master suite including a fitted walk in robe and large ensuite. A unique feature of the ensuite, is a full height glazing panel in the shower with views to the bedroom and canal beyond. The double vanity includes mirror cabinets reflecting the outdoor views.
If you are in the market for a new home please call in and take a look at this latest offering from Reefsea Homes to gain an appreciation for the thought which has been put into the design and the master craftsman manner in which it has been built. Gary and Chris will be more than happy to walk you through the great features included in The Point.
