Homestead style with McDon­ald Jones’ Her­mitage Grande

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - FRONT PAGE - Words Mercedes Maguire Pictures Supplied

Think sprawl­ing coun­try manor and you will start to un­der­stand why the Her­mitage is McDon­ald Jones Homes’ grand­est dis­play home. Con­tained to a sin­gle level, noth­ing has been sac­ri­ficed in this fam­ily home.

The liv­ing ar­eas are at the cen­tre of the house and work to bal­ance the floor­plan as well as sep­a­rat­ing the two wings. In that sense, this is the per­fect home for a grow­ing fam­ily, or one with older chil­dren crav­ing a lit­tle in­de­pen­dence.

“Grande” is aptly ap­plied to the mas­ter suite, and in par­tic­u­lar the two walk-in robes.

The kitchen also has a butler’s pantry and a sep­a­rate walk-in pantry. The U-shaped kitchen works as a per­fect stag­ing area, over­look­ing the fam­ily and din­ing rooms and a large op­tional cov­ered al­fresco area be­yond. And op­tions for fam­ily liv­ing ar­eas do not end there, with a chil­dren’s ac­tiv­ity room and home the­atre also avail­able.

The three se­condary bed­rooms come off the ac­tiv­ity room, each with a built-in-robe. Th­ese rooms have di­rect ac­cess to the main bath­room and a sep­a­rate toi­let.
