The Onyx
Step into your own world of style and comfort. Our newest Display Home the Onyx opens your mind to style, practicality and those who dare to be different! Here’s why we love it: All family members can find their happy place 😊 The downstairs is all about fun, relaxation and socializing – inside and out. The integrated living, kitchen and dining area wraps around to the large alfresco, which is a great space for entertaining. Upstairs there are three generous secondary bedrooms – complete with a theatre/activity zone which gives the kids their own chill out space while the parents get their own space too with a discreetly positioned master suite downstairs. [caption id="attachment_25643" align="alignnone" width="800"] Room to entertain downstairs and ample space to kick back and relax upstairs![/caption] Many layers for living With room to entertain downstairs and ample space to kick back and relax upstairs, The Onyx is ideally suited to families, irrespective of what life stage they are at. Positioning the three generously sized bedrooms on the upper level alongside a separate leisure zone offers a private play haven for younger members of the family. Not only acting as a buffer between the parents’ master suite and children’s bedrooms, it also enables more mature kids to relax away from the adults, and for families with younger children, it’s also ideal to cater for the needs of sleeping babies and toddlers! The Master Suite Located downstairs, the spacious master suite includes a sizeable ensuite and flows through to a walk-in robe, making getting ready effortless. Being away from the other bedrooms allows parents to unwind in a very private space, while dual vanities and an open doorway create a resort-style feel. We love the make-up nook with natural light inside the walk-in robe - another thoughtful touch! [caption id="attachment_25639" align="alignnone" width="800"] The master suite is away from the other bedrooms which allows parents to unwind in a very private space[/caption] An entertainers delight! The heart of the home is undoubtedly the open-plan entertainment area at the rear, which connects with the spacious alfresco at multiple points!  The integrated living, kitchen and dining area, which wraps around the large alfresco, allows the hosts to bring food and drinks from the inside to the outside and still be part of the action! One of the biggest advantages of a two-storey home is enjoying the balance between internal living space and still having space outside for a decent backyard. The generous size of the floor plan leaves plenty of room for a swimming pool or extra outdoor entertaining area at the rear. [caption id="attachment_25648" align="alignnone" width="800"] The integrated living, kitchen and dining area, wraps around the spacious alfresco[/caption] Bring back the backyard! Thinking of a swimming pool or extra outdoor entertaining space? The Onyx home design for this two-storey home allows you to have a bigger backyard and more space for that healthy lifestyle we are lucky enough to enjoy in our climate.  A spacious living hub for all to enjoy and allows parents to keep an eye on the kids playing outside or playing in the pool. Come down and see The Onyx: 28 Cedarleaf Entrance, Treeby, open for viewing Mondays and Wednesdays from 2-5pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5pm.

Display Home of the Week – ‘The Waterside’
The Waterside Two Storey Display Home – Located on Medici Way, Chianti Estate, Woodvale A spacious family home with a striking, functional and eye-catching design.   5 REASONS WHY WE LOVE THE WATERSIDE: 1.  A smaller lot with a whole lot of home! The Waterside is a two storey home designed for today’s smaller-sized lots. The clever design of this home still manages to incorporate all the required spaces for true family living and multi-space entertaining and leaves room to enjoy the outdoors! The home features a luxurious resort style master suite to the front, complete with double basin ensuite and a generous walk in robe. A large light filled kitchen with a feature scullery is the central hub to the open living space. The window splash back running the length of the kitchen bench creates a dynamic, changing scene of lush, tropical greenery. The living zone surrounds the alfresco allowing for an abundance of natural light and creating  a natural flow between indoor and outdoor entertaining. Stylish open tread timber stairs make an architectural statement and are the impressive focus of the home’s entry. Below the stairs sits the perfect versatile space for either a study nook, feature credenza or styling reading area. The stairs invite you up to an activity/theatre space with private bar and a stunning front balcony. With the 3 secondary bedrooms upstairs, while you entertain downstairs. This home really is the ultimate in multi-space entertaining!     2.  The floorplan – Entertaining and parents retreat downstairs, spacious kids’ zone upstairs The Waterside is ideal for family living! The parents’ mastersuite is perfectly located on the ground floor and the secondary bedrooms upstairs allows for some peaceful separation between children and parents. This layout is also popular with empty nesters who only use the entirety of the lower floor when it’s time for the family to visit. Positioning the master bedroom on the lower floor ensures less work on your joints as the years progress, as well as less cleaning during the absence of guests. The oversized kitchen island doubles as a conversation hotspot and homework zone and the open plan living area is one where people can congregate easily, whilst enabling the cook to still feel part of the action! The generous scullery and ample kitchen storage means that messy, everyday kitchen activities can be kept out of sight and with the open plan living design, the kitchen can always be proudly on display!     3.  The open plan living area On the ground floor there is a celebration for the love of entertaining, with the kitchen being a standout in the open-plan living area which seamlessly opens to the outdoors. The kitchen is large and filled with an abundance of natural light and with a feature scullery. Placing the majority of the bedrooms upstairs in the Waterside is an intelligent choice for families who want to get the most space out of their backyard. Thinking of a swimming pool or extra outdoor entertaining space? If you have more rooms on your upper floor, it will give you additional space to work with downstairs. A two storey home allows you to have a bigger yard and more space for that beautiful alfresco area you have always wanted. Even the fury members of the family will benefit too – with more room for pets to enjoy the outdoors!     4.  The upstairs – The perfect escape for your kids (and from your kids) A truly impressive architectural open-tread staircase creates a stunning entry feature, and with all secondary bedrooms, and a separate activity zone including private bar upstairs, the adults can happily entertain uninterrupted downstairs, with the kids enjoying their own space upstairs.     5.  Stylish Material Choices The beauty of the home not only comes from its functional living areas but also from the stylish material choices that produce an effortlessly timeless finish. The vision for the home was sophisticated and sleek with lots clean, straight lines. The design was approached with a minimal sense of calm in mind. The feel and finishes create a soothing backdrop to life’s hectic schedule. When we created this project we wanted all details to be in balance with each other. Clean, open plan living that can withstand the demands of multizone entertaining. White surfaces balance with the deep natural wood and stone, dark, textured wallpapers balance with the surrounding colours and play the role of the contrast elements. The intention was to create a timeless and elegant blank canvas that is waiting to take on the buzz of family life.     The Waterside display is open for viewings Mondays and Wednesdays from 2-5pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 1-5pm.     A two storey home allows you to have a bigger yard and more space for that beautiful alfresco area you have always wanted. – At Express we are committed to bringing back the backyard, if you’d like to walk through this stunning home design, pop in and see Shane at the Display Home.
