SPACE, LIGHT GA­LORE

The lat­est dis­play home from McCarthy Homes, The Affin­ity, is the epit­ome of mod­ern Aus­tralian ele­gance, says head de­signer Shane Lee.

The home ( pic­tured on page 13) has been de­signed to em­brace the warm Queens­land cli­mate and re­laxed life­style, with­out com­pro­mis­ing on space or style.

An en­ter­tainer’s de­light, the McCarthy Homes de­sign boasts a large open-plan liv­ing area which seam­lessly con­nects to two out­door spa­ces – a day bed nook with a wa­ter fea­ture and fire pit, as well as a pool area with sun deck, al­fresco and built-in bar­be­cue.

In ad­di­tion, a deluxe sized but­ler’s pantry, chef-style kitchen and wine cel­lar room fur­ther add to its ap­peal.

With an en­vi­ably sized main bed­room, three sec­ondary bed­rooms with built-in study nooks, and three liv­ing ar­eas, it’s an ideal home for a fam­ily with older chil­dren who are look­ing to en­sure ev­ery­one has their own space to un­wind af­ter a busy day at work, school or study.

Mr Lee said the two-storey home was also de­signed to em­brace nat­u­ral light.

“We’ve specif­i­cally in­te­grated Velux sky­lights and gen­er­ously sized win­dows through­out both lev­els of the home, so nat­u­ral light flows in all day, min­imis­ing the need to turn lights on,” he said.

“From the mo­ment you walk into The Affin­ity, the su­pe­rior qual­ity and fin­ish really stands out.

“As well as de­sign­ing the over­all floor plan and fa­cade, I de­signed some mod­ern yet in­tri­cate cab­i­netry for the liv­ing ar­eas, which we’ve had a lot of great feed­back about.

“The home has also been beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated by Dar­ren James In­te­ri­ors to re­flect the mod­ern Aus­tralian life­style, which has really brought our vi­sion to life. It def­i­nitely comes with wow fac­tor, and we’ve had a sig­nif­i­cant amount of in­ter­est al­ready.”
