It’s not just the fabulous ‘bar style’ outdoor area and man cave that have got people talking about the Cardinal. Yes, our new family-sized display home in Whitby is a knockout when it comes to entertaining at home, but it’s also big on space and value.
Showcasing a modern industrial edge, it’s a well-zoned four-bedroom, two-bathroom home perfect for 15m-wide blocks. A quick visit to the Cardinal and you’ll see why we’re well known for delivering big, well-built homes at an affordable price.
Big features, small price
Design Manager Dave Clynk says the Cardinal is both a ‘great entertainer’ and an ideal family home, with large minor bedrooms, an impressive master suite and a large indoor/outdoor kitchen and living space.
“This is not only a big house for the money, but also you don’t have to skimp on features such as the big open-style ensuite, the double helping of wardrobe space in the master suite, the double-sized alfresco and the home theatre or ‘man cave’ off the main living area,” Dave says.
“With affordability in mind, we’ve added value-for-money features where they will deliver the most impact. The master suite with its open-style ensuite is a great example. We’ve made it a big space because that’s what many of our clients have been asking for. They want that sense of luxury that a large master bedroom and ensuite can create.”
We’ve displayed the master suite with an optional laser-cut screen for a sense of separation between the bedroom and bathroom spaces, and we’ve included double vanities and a generous shower. In the master bedroom, there is a walk-in wardrobe as well as a fitted wardrobe with sliding doors. A feature wall with concrete-look wallpaper picks up on the industrial-inspired styling in the Cardinal, which also showcases concrete-coloured floor tiles, restoration-red feature bricks to the front elevation, an over-sized front door with a large pull-handle, and a dark-grey Glosswood ceiling in the alfresco.
Indoor/outdoor sports bar
We think the optional servery window between the alfresco and the man cave is a neat feature that instantly opens up the inside to the outside. You can effectively join these two spaces together, which is ideal when friends come round to watch the game. Open up the bi-folding windows and you can be in the alfresco watching the TV. It’s like having your own sports bar.
The kitchen and living space also run seamlessly into the alfresco thanks to a six-panel stacker door arrangement that brings the inside and outside together. There is a good-sized kitchen island bench with integrated breakfast bar, big pantry, overhead cupboards, a supersized recess for the fridge/freezer, 900mm stainless steel cooking appliances and access to the laundry straight off the kitchen.
