build with intelligence: the ibis

The Ibis display home is a shining example of how smart design leads to a more liveable property. A dedicated media room, clever storage solutions and a light-filled activity space are just a handful of the clever features of this intelligent double storey home design.

It's a property designed with family in mind: Adults and kids alike will adore living in this generous home, which is designed for a 16-metre wide block.

However, it's more than just a spacious property. From an aesthetic point of view, the Ibis is a masterful piece of design. Embracing a Scandinavian aesthetic, this home has a crisp, fresh feel. Timber tones are used throughout the property, which perfectly complement the off-white walls and ceilings.

Pulling apart smart design

From the outside, the Ibis is a stunning house that begs to be lived in. From the inside, gorgeous design is only the beginning.

"The master bedroom is downstairs, and upstairs are the three minor rooms, with a kids' activity room and a balcony," explains apg Display and New Product Manager Chris Riccadonna.

The Ibis boasts the pinnacle of master bedrooms. Parents will appreciate the spacious lower-level bedroom that has access to a luxurious master ensuite. The bathroom itself has his and hers vanities, while the bedroom's expansive walk-in robe eliminates storage issues for fashion lovers.

Three kids' bedrooms are located upstairs, along with an activity room.

"Two of the dedicated minor bedrooms are positioned in a wing behind the activity room, around the second bathroom, maximising the privacy of these rooms," Mr Riccadonna notes.

"Meanwhile, the third minor bedroom is cleverly positioned adjacent to the activity room and entry of the balcony at the front of the home. Its position and size lend itself to a variety of uses, from guest bedroom to study to exercise room."

For those wanting to live in a light-filled property, the Ibis is an ideal pick.

"The balustrade to the stairwell adds to the sense of space in the upstairs activity room by visually opening the stairwell and allowing the light from the double stacking doors to fill the entire space," Mr Riccadonna says.

A home for living in

Head downstairs and you'll be impressed by the impressive living spaces on offer.

Along with the master bedroom, there are a number of other smart spaces on the lower level of this intuitive double storey house plan.

Whether you're a kitchen whiz or far from it, the Ibis' kitchen leaves little to be desired. 

"A traditional galley-style layout is a big plus, while a large walk-in pantry and modern kitchen island ensures there's never a lack of storage space or preparation areas," Mr Riccadonna explains.

Food preparation areas and the kitchen sink are discreetly hidden away. A breakfast bar and secondary sink for drinks is the icing on the cake of this family-friendly space.

The living area has a clever wall niche that houses the television - this ensures brackets and cabling are located out of sight. Along with the generously sized living space, there's also a media room located on the first level.

"We thought they might have been going out of fashion, but people still request them quite a bit!" Mr Riccadonna says.

It appears that spacious homes with all the mod cons are hot in demand, and the Ibis is a smart solution to such demands from Perth-based families.

Backyard bliss

This four-bedroom, two-bathroom property also has striking outdoor features.

Step out the rear doors and you'll find yourself in the alfresco zone, which is just the ticket for balmy evenings spent entertaining friends and family.

"From the alfresco you step up to a freestanding cabana, which has a teppanyaki barbecue set up - It's an entertainer's house." Mr Riccadonna explains.

To top off these clever outdoor features, there's also a swimming pool and low-maintenance garden beds.

If you're looking for a home that's thoughfully designed and intelligently built, look no further than the Ibis.
