When it comes to your new home you want everything to be big except the price tag, right? A big home, that’s big on style, and big on entertaining? But that costs less than you might think? Let us introduce you to the Rushmore.

With its super-sized living and entertaining zone, and its four big bedrooms, the Rushmore is perfect for families who need room to stretch out in. 

The secret sauce

It’s all down to our ‘design efficiency’ – something we take great pride in and are well known for. In the Domain by Plunkett instruction manual, design efficiency means keeping the quality, style and space quota high, but the price low.

“The Rushmore is a prime example,” says head designer Dave Clynk. “It’s a lovely open design with lots of space, plus there’s ample scope to create features that will really make the home your own.”

Making it personal

Maybe shots of vibrant aquamarine teamed with industrial-inspired interiors? Or vivid teal-coloured double entry doors teamed with a stone feature wall and fresh white render?

“The contemporary elevation means you can go as bold as you like, while the interiors deliver all the space the modern family needs,” Dave says.

Go big or go home

We’re sure you’ll agree that one of the standout features of the Rushmore is its larger-than-expected freeform living area and kitchen. Not only have we added about 2m extra to the length of this open-plan area, but we’ve also made sure there’s lots of glass to bump up the feeling of space and to let natural light flood in.

On the floorplan you’ll also spot not one, but two, sets of sliding doors leading out of the main living and dining area. One set leads out to the alfresco, while a second set takes you to the side of the house. This layout means you can really make the most of your outside space and enjoy every opportunity for indoor/outdoor living.

Such a big heart

The added space in the heart of the home means you can design your own showpiece kitchen with a 900mm oven, cooktop and rangehood, lots of overhead cupboards, a walk-in pantry and a large island bench with an integrated breakfast bar.

“We know what works when it comes to efficient design and we’re not afraid to put the space where it matters most,” Dave says.

As well as an oversized home theatre and a dedicated work-from-home study, there are three generous minor bedrooms that each have room for a double bed and a study desk if need be.

“We chose not to add in an activity room, allocating the extra space to the bedrooms as this is where many of our clients tell us they need it,” Dave says.

Yes, we listened.

The result is a home that will suit growing families for many years to come, including those with adult offspring still at home.

Welcome to the suite life

As for the master suite, we’ve gone big and bold there, too. Positioned at the rear of the home, it feels private and secluded. Oh! And it enjoys a view to the alfresco, too. Add a set of sliding doors and you’re instantly connected to the outside.

The Rushmore has been designed to suit a 15m-wide block. The floorplan delivers 274sqm of accommodation and can be easily customised.
