Kur­mond Glen­leigh

A but­ler’s pantry adds con­ve­nience with a touch of style, writes

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s no se­cret that trends in home de­sign are con­stantly chang­ing. From mul­ti­ple liv­ing spa­ces to study nooks and lux­ury mas­ter bed­rooms with walk-in robes and large en­suites, the list of in­clu­sions mod­ern buy­ers look for in a home is get­ting longer and longer.

Spa­cious out­door liv­ing ar­eas and the re­cent ad­di­tion of fully-equipped me­dia rooms have taken mod­ern liv­ing ar­eas to a new level.

In the kitchen, the walk-in pantry has pro­gressed to a full but­ler’s pantry with ex­tra bench space, sinks, ovens and dish­wash­ers.

There­fore, it’s log­i­cal that many builders are launch­ing new ver­sions of pop­u­lar de­signs with added in­clu­sions.

Kur­mond Homes have lis­tened to the mar­ket and de­vel­oped the Glen­leigh 44.5, a vari­a­tion of the pop­u­lar Glen­leigh de­sign.


The Glen­leigh’s en­try foyer opens to a long hall­way through the heart of the home.

Just in­side the en­try the stair­case adds to the home’s sense of space thanks to the void cre­ated to the sec­ond storey and the side glass pan­elling and stylish wooden treads.

The first of sev­eral liv­ing spa­ces, the for­mal liv­ing room is lo­cated di­rectly to the left of the en­try and is im­me­di­ately fol­lowed by a me­dia room which is slightly low­ered from the main hall­way and fea­tures a re­cessed wall panel per­fect for a big-screen TV.

The home’s main liv­ing space opens up the rear of the house and is an­chored by a roomy kitchen with an over­sized din­ing ta­ble ex­tend­ing from an is­land bench. Close at hand is a full-sized but­ler’s pantry with sep­a­rate sink, open pantry space for gro­ceries and di­rect ac­cess to the home’s size­able laun­dry which has a dou­ble built-in linen closet.

The Glen­leigh’s main fam­ily room ex­tends from the kitchen and ex­tends through bi-fold doors to a large out­door liv­ing area with a built-in bar­be­cue.

Up­stairs, an additional liv­ing space is at the top of the stairs and forms a com­mon space be­tween the home’s four up­stairs bed­rooms.

A di­vid­ing wall sep­a­rates a study nook from this space form­ing a ded­i­cated home­work area for chil­dren and teens or a small home of­fice.


The Glen­leigh’s main bed­room is at the front of the house with large glass doors open­ing to a bal­cony. It has a walk-in robe with built-in shoe rack and large en­suite bath­room with shut­ters for pri­vacy from the bed­room if re­quired. Three other bed­rooms — two with walk-in robes and the other with built-ins — are also lo­cated on the up­per level of the home and share the Glen­leigh’s main bath­room.

A fifth bed­room down­stairs could func­tion as a guest room and has ac­cess to a sec­ond bath­room and a pri­vate deck area which leads via step­ping stones to the home’s al­fresco.
