Fans of any TV ren­o­va­tion show will tell you it’s all about stor­age, stor­age, stor­age.

Cup­boards, shelv­ing, built-ins, cab­i­nets, nooks and draw­ers — any space that can help or­gan­ise and de­clut­ter a space will al­ways be in high de­mand from ev­ery­one from par­ents of busy kids to older cou­ples with years of ac­cu­mu­lated be­long­ings to tuck away.

Beech­wood’s two-storey Edge­cliffe Vibe 37 has stor­age in spades with a gen­er­ous walk-in robe in the main bed­room, built-in robes to the home’s other three bed­rooms and a large walk-in pantry and walk-in linen closet down­stairs. Re­cessed shelv­ing in the liv­ing ar­eas pro­vide fur­ther space for stor­age or dis­play and the theme continues in the bath­rooms and kitchen with plenty of cup­boards so ev­ery­thing has its own place.

With this amount of stor­age, you might ex­pect the de­sign to feel cramped or closed-in but in re­al­ity, the Edgel­cliffe Vibe 37 feels spa­cious and open.

Thanks to the lo­ca­tion of the stair­case at the en­try to the home, the foyer has a two­s­torey void which al­lows plenty of nat­u­ral light to flood the space via large win­dows.

The large com­bined din­ing, liv­ing and kitchen area at the heart of the home also ben­e­fits from well-sized win­dows along both sides.

Liv­ing

The Edge­cliffe Vibe 37 has sev­eral liv­ing spa­ces, per­fect for fam­i­lies who love spend­ing time to­gether but also ap­pre­ci­ate that ev­ery­one needs their own space.

The kitchen and din­ing area form the cen­tre of the home which suits those who like to en­ter­tain. The kitchen has an is­land bench that can dou­ble as a break­fast bar or an in­for­mal din­ner area, while the size of the walk-in pantry means it could eas­ily be con­verted to a but­ler’s pantry with plenty of space for ap­pli­ances, table­ware and gro­ceries.

The din­ing area blends com­fort­ably with the home’s main liv­ing space, while a home theatre is sit­u­ated at the rear next to the out­door liv­ing space, known as the ter­razza, which is ac­cessed through floor-to-ceil­ing glass slid­ing doors from the din­ing area.

A pow­der room next to the kitchen and large laun­dry with out­door ac­cess com­plete the down­stairs floor­plan.

Up­stairs a me­dia room is lo­cated at the top of the home’s stair­case and forms a com­mon area be­tween the home’s bed­rooms. This space could also con­vert to a study.

Bed­rooms

The home’s four bed­rooms are all well-sized, with the main com­plete with a bal­cony, large walk-in robe and full en­suite.

The three smaller bed­rooms have built-in robes and are grouped to­gether with one fea­tur­ing an­other bal­cony.The home’s main bath­room is cen­trally lo­cated near the bed­rooms and has a bath, shower and toi­let.
