Compact Virtue: Its Own Reward

This home will fit on a 12.45m wide block so qualifies as a lock-and-leave cottage with the double garage at the front (rather than the usual rear).

Easystart Sales Manager, Jared Stone said: “The Virtue is designed for first-homebuyers and young families that don’t want to compromise on quality and innovative designs.”

The main suite is at the rear with a private lobby. It overlooks a garden and alfresco area and includes a walk-in robe and open-plan ensuite bathroom with a separate toilet.

“The dedicated parents’ wing at the rear end of the home has been a real hit with parents who value quiet time and privacy away from the kids,” Mr Stone said.

The front family bedroom wing is an interesting variation on the norm. Access to this wing is off a small lobby and the two bedrooms are either side of a bathroom.

A home theatre is configured close to this bedroom wing off the front entry hall way.

The centre of the home is an open-plan living area grouped around the alfresco. Mr Stone said the dual access to alfresco area had been well received with homebuyers who enjoyed entertaining.

The laundry is behind the kitchen with a walk-in linen cupboard. Somebody has given a lot of thought to this configuration. For example, the two tall opaque glass inserts in the kitchen wall that allow light to flow from the kitchen into the walk-in linen cupboard and light from the laundry to flow into the kitchen-simple but effective.

The kitchen has an island bench, stone-top work surfaces and Westinghouse appliances that include a 500mm oven, 900mm gas hotplate and a 900mm range hood. Included in the price is one of three Easystart packages with the options of furniture, electrical appliances and other upgrades.

“Our experience shows that once homebuyers make the decision to buy a new home they want it all- the furniture and the lifestyle that it brings,” Mr Stone said. “We understand how overwhelming the process of building a new home can be, particularly for first-homebuyers and how the ‘nice to have’ items can sometimes be delayed.

“When building your first home, essential items such as a new fridge, washing machine or couch can sometimes be placed on the back burner.

“We’re offering a range of contemporary designs to furnish every space, so once the buyer turns the key they can start enjoying immediately.”
