The Dar­ley 23 by Clarendon Homes has it all — and more

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - FRONT PAGE - Words Jen­nifer Veer­huis Pic­tures David Swift

Whether it’s a first home you’re af­ter, or you want some­thing suit­able for down­siz­ing, there are many fac­tors to con­sider when vis­it­ing dis­play homes.

But no mat­ter what stage you are at in life, el­e­ments such as stor­age and a mix of liv­ing spa­ces are uni­ver­sally ap­peal­ing.

The Dar­ley 23 by Clarendon Homes is on dis­play at both Mars­den Park in the north­west and Oran Park in the south­west.

The home is just 11.3m wide, so it will fit on nar­rower blocks, and in­cludes a great se­lec­tion of liv­ing spa­ces.

There’s a home theatre open­ing from the en­try hall­way — per­fect for watch­ing sport or a movie — which can be shut off from the rest of the house.

There’s also a mul­ti­pur­pose room sit­u­ated be­tween the kitchen and laun­dry at the rear of the house. A flex­i­ble space, it can be used as a study, play­room for chil­dren or a sewing room. It also has di­rect ac­cess to one of the three chil­dren’s bed­rooms.

The kitchen is lit­er­ally in the heart of the home. It’s set in a com­fort­able open-plan for­mat with the meals area and fam­ily room a good van­tage point across this space.

The kitchen’s gen­er­ous walk-in pantry of­fers am­ple space for food and ap­pli­ance stor­age, while the is­land bench would be a great cen­tre­piece for par­ties.

The main bed­room sits at the front of the house, over­look­ing the street. It has an en­suite and a walk-in robe and of­fers par­ents pri­vacy, with the chil­dren’s bed­rooms lo­cated in a sep­a­rate wing.

Stor­age is one of the sell­ing points of the Dar­ley 23 with a cup­board in the hall­way and linen cup­boards in­side the laun­dry and out­side the main bath­room, while the chil­dren’s bed­rooms all con­tain built-in robes.

The fam­ily bath­room near the chil­dren’s bed­rooms has a bath, shower and a sep­a­rate toi­let. The house is avail­able with ar­chi­tec­turally de­signed fa­cades and an al­fresco area is op­tional. Bed 2
