Small Block? The Highview Grand 33 Offers Space Galore
by Carlisle Homes
We’ve refined our much-loved Highview double storey home to give you more room to spread out, even on a narrow 12.5 x 25-metre block.
If you thought a narrow block meant you wouldn’t have room to spread out, think again! We’ve given one of our most popular double storey homes a smart update to include all the space you need – meet the Highview Grand 33, part of our EasyLiving series. This new and improved home is designed for small 12.5 x 25-metre blocks, and it’s now on show at Meridian Estate in Clyde North. Come and take a look!
In the meantime, here’s a little bit more about this great-value home from Carlisle’s Senior Designer Shane Rogers, and Interior Design Manager Jessica Hodges.
How is the new Highview Grand 33 different from its predecessor?
“The new Highview Grand 33 is all about great value and best use of land, with no compromises,” says Rogers. “The original Highview is a fairly compact design, whereas the Highview Grand 33 offers a really generous first floor with its own living space and a large master dressing room. Essentially, we’ve kept all the same great features buyers loved about the original Highview 31 – plenty of light, versatile living spaces and generous accommodation – and improved them.”
“We’ve done this by adding a clever build-over design over the garage to create three extra squares of space, which totally transforms the upper level. The additional three squares are spread out across the upper level to create four great-size bedrooms, a large dressing room off the master suite, a bigger, separate kids’ activity area and study space. It’s a delight to be in!” he says.
And how is it great for families?
“For an affordable price, it’s got everything a growing family needs, including four generous bedrooms, a spacious kids’ activity zone where they can hang out with their friends, a study area away from the busy living areas downstairs, and a theatre room in a quiet spot on the lower level where everyone can come together for movie nights,” says Rogers. “It’s also great for entertaining, with an open-plan kitchen with an island in the centre, a roomy walk-in pantry and a covered entertainer’s terrace you can use year-round,” he says.
“This home can be equally fantastic for downsizers looking for space too – there are three separate living spaces so the grown-ups and kids can spread out, and spacious bedrooms for overnight guests.”
“Land is the most expensive part of building, and this home makes the most of that investment by utilising space very effectively,” he says.
How is it decorated?
“This home features our a beautiful look with warm, neutral tones, botanical prints, touches of timber and plenty of texture, which really draws the outside in and creates a sense of calm,” says Hodges. “To add a little drama and depth, we’ve introduced moodier accents, such as a dark dining table and chairs, alongside pops of rich colours like khaki and burgundy. It’s the perfect balance of serene and stylish.”
What is the façade like?
“It’s absolutely stunning – this home is guaranteed to be the envy of the street,” says Hodges. “It’s fully rendered in three warm neutral colours of our ‘Sage’ exterior scheme, with sleek aluminium windows and textured Castellation timber detailing at the centre. And, being built with Hebel, this home is incredibly durable, kind on the environment and helps boost your home’s energy efficiency. What’s not to love?”
