NOT YOUR AVERAGE
SOUTHERN VALE HOMES recently opened its doors to a brand new display home in Riverside Estate, Killara. Packed full of modern details, the ‘ Solace 32+’ is a remarkable home that’s a far cry from what you’d imagine in a standard four- bedroom design.
It’s the many thoughtful and practical details of this home that set it apart – such as a private sitting room at the front of the home, adjoining the master bedroom; the overly luxurious ensuite with double sinks and a double- sized shower; the large triple-garage with a set- back façade, and the open- plan dining/ kitchen and family area that backs seamlessly onto a large under- roof alfresco.
However, speaking with the team behind this beautiful home, it is clear that Southern Vale had one goal in mind for this display: to show clients the simplicity and effectiveness of careful planning and imaginative details, without having to blow the budget.
“Clients really notice the difference when they walk into a home that doesn’t have thousands of dollars in extras,” said Southern Vale Sales Manager, Ron Davis. “We wanted to showcase a display that gives the client a true indication of what can be achieved with minimal upgrades”.
“We also wanted to show off the impact of simple, well- planned design, and sprinkle in as many thoughtful details as possible. Wall niches and built- in timber shelves are featured in many rooms of the home, including entranceway, sitting room and theatre,” said Ron.
However, the hallmark of the Solace 32+ is the surprise butler’s pantry. “We tell all our visitors to ‘ see if you can find it!’,” said Ron. “We have designed the kitchen to make the butler’s pantry as discreet as possible. Visitors will think it’s a standard pantry or cupboard, however open the doors and there’s virtually another room inside – a massive walk- in pantry complete with additional kitchen benchtop and sink”.
Southern Vale Homes is a familyowned company, founded in Albury Wodonga over 20 years ago, now spread across six offices in North East Victoria and Southern NSW, including Sydney. This latest home follows the success of their previous display home in White Box Rise, that won an ‘ Best Display Home’ in 2016 at the North East Regional Awards hosted by Master Builders Victoria.
The Solace 32+ display home is open 7 days, at 4 Charlton Road, Riverside Estate, Killara. For more information visit southernvale. com. au or call Ron Davis on ( 02) 6051 5000
