Build with intelligence: the Newport

Adding another feather in the cap of our range of beautiful two-storey display homes is the Newport, located in Coogee.

This established suburb along the south western corridor of Perth is a lovely place for families to retreat to, within a few kilometres of the beach and a classic area for southern coastal living. Think of the Newport as your beachside port to dock into, a relaxing home to while away the hours in. 

So, let's set sail on this portside adventure to discover all that is new, innovative and clever about the Newport, with our Sales Manager Ryan Webb as an honorary captain leading the way. 

Port 1: Plan and layout 

Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a chic powder room downstairs are included in this double-storey home, but the layout has been cleverly designed to offer separate, self-contained living areas on each floor.

The master bedroom with luxurious ensuite is on the ground floor, while remaining bedrooms are upstairs with access to the second bathroom. This allows people plenty of their own space, so if you often have house guests or teenage kids who want their own zone, the Newport is for you. There's even a second lounge space upstairs so they can unwind. 

To offer the best of both worlds, communal areas such as the lounge, kitchen and dining instead allow spending time together to be easy and fun. 

"The Newport has several 'new' features, one of which is that the kitchen and dining room have been planned near the rear of the house," said Ryan. Talk about quality open-plan layouts with great indoor-outdoor flow!

"My own home is set up in this style - it works a treat because this allows the kitchen to directly lead out onto the alfresco dining area, so people who love to throw dinner parties can cook up a storm and simply step outside to serve guests outdoors in the lovely Perth sunshine."

Professional landscaping surrounds this alfresco dining platform, making for a picturesque backdrop to all meals. Even better, an enormous, oversized walk-in-pantry in the kitchen caters to your foodie cravings, complete with a 600 mm benchtop to keep microwaves out of sight and four shelves for storage.

If you love midnight snacks and movies, you'll adore the spacious 4.4m x 4.1m media room on the ground floor (conveniently away from the master suite to avoid noise). 

Port 2: Clever build and design 

The Newport's spatial design has meant clients can enjoy saving money on the construction due to efficient build times - the team at apg Homes worked hard to offer the best design solution for price, ensuring each one of the 320sqm of the home is used practically. This doesn't mean style has been compromised. A gable roof sets the tone of the Newport's timeless architecture, with a large porch to boot. Classic, simple, sophisticated.

"There is a great furniturability to the Newport, meaning clients can arrange furniture in a wide number of stylish ways," added Ryan. 

"The Newport is functional, liveable and charming," he concluded - spoken like a true captain. 

The Newport opens its doors for the first time at 1pm Saturday 14th November 2015 - 52 Sumich Gardens, Coogee.
