great things come in small lots

From the striking contemporary facade to the rear double garage, the two-storey Emporio, from APG Homes, demonstrates what can be achieved with small-lot design. APG Homes Sales and Marketing Manager, Leo Callisto said the display home had been a stunning success, appealing to young professionals and empty-nesters because of the flexibility of the design.

“This Home demonstrates that small-lot living has evolved to the point that there’s no reason to compromise on design and space just because you are restricted to a smaller lot,” he said.

The Emporio has the living areas downstairs, with access to the entry from a covered porch. The study is at the front of the home which is handy for people with a home office or business. Across the hall and at the front of the home is a gym. This is placed where the main suite is often situated, and comes with an ensuite bathroom. This makes it perfect for a guest room or a forth bedroom or even a formal lounge or theatre room, depending on the family’s preference.

Past the stairs is a big open-plan family living and dining area and kitchen. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and stacker glass doors leading to the covered, semi-enclosed alfresco area provides a strong indoor-outdoor connection and a space flexible for entertaining. The kitchen has stone-topped benches, including an island breakfast bar with double sink inserts. There is a swag of big storage draws, plus overhead cupboards and a walk-in pantry providing ample storage.

At the back is then laundry, powder room and double garage with store. The stairs to the upper floor have a clear glazed balustrade with stainless-steel handrail. Upstairs are two children’s bedrooms each with double sliding-door robes, a bathroom with bath and a big sitting room with access to the balcony.

The main suite has a big walk-in robe and an open ensuite with a long vanity and mirror, a separate toilet and a built-in shower with glass pivot door.

The emporio has an internal floor space of 250sqm and a total area of 336sqm.
