House of the week: Quality is key to the home

THIS brand new two-storey home has been crafted to the highest standard.

Nothing has been spared in creating this low-maintenance, contemporary home which boasts an enviable location just 800 metres from the CBD and within easy reach of the railway station.

Local boutique builder and owner Adrian Bassett said the location was one of the best things about the new home.

But he was keen to stress the quality was also key.

“As far as features we haven’t compromised on quality from the tiles to the carpet to the light fittings,” he said.

Certainly the attention to detail pays off and it is the little touches that make the difference.

As you walk in the home the first thing you notice is the impressive hardwood, steel and glass staircase which is a real focal point.

Throughout the home there are raised ceilings, square set corners, plantation shutters and zoned ducted heating and refrigerated cooling.

The main living areas are on the ground floor.

To your left is the main bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite.

To your right you find a parents' retreat or small lounge.

Continuing into the home you have an open-plan kitchen, dining and family area that opens to an alfresco dining area and a good-sized deck with illuminated wall features.

The deck, made from stringybark timber with hardwood bi-fold doors, is perfect for entertaining.

The kitchen has all the appliances you would expect in a modern home including Bosch induction cooktop, rangehood, pyrolytic electric fan-forced oven and dishwasher.

There are also stone top benches, soft closing drawers, a double-door pantry and an eye-catching mirror splashback.

Tucked away behind the kitchen there is a laundry with extra powder room and direct access to the garage.

Upstairs are two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a family bathroom with separate toilet.

There is also a lounge space that could easily be used as an office.

Outside there is great vehicle storage with two driveways offering a powered single garage with storage and trailer and caravan parking zones.

There is also a low-maintenance yard and garden shed.

This home would be perfect for a family or a retired couple looking to live in the heart of Bendigo with all the convenience of modern living.
