Family Favourite – Designed for the way you want to live, this refined family home offers a touch of glamour and endless flexibility.
Unique, elegant and an enduring favourite with families seeking long-term flexibility, the Miami 16 provides a level of luxury you’d usually expect from a bespoke home. “The architecturally considered use of space, combined with the resort-style ambience, creates a home of undeniable appeal,” says Nathan Klein, Sales Manager for McDonald Jones.
“The Miami 16 truly takes luxury to another level but at an affordable price, which means the home you always imagined was only a dream can now be your reality.”While this is a luxury home, it was designed with families very firmly in mind. Explains Nathan, “With the front of the Miami entirely dedicated to a kids’ wing, this home makes perfect sense for families. Three generous bedrooms, a bathroom with a separate WC, a study nook and children’s activity make up this expansive area — a space where the kids can kick off their shoes and chill, socialise with friends or study.
“In the meantime, mum and dad can revel in the silence at the other end of the home where the large master suite is located. This parents’ retreat boasts a huge walk-in robe and an architecturally-designed ensuite with his-and-hers vanities, a freestanding bath and a two-metre shower.”
With the Miami 16 you also have the option of an alfresco cabana off the master suite, an option you can see first-hand at the new display home in Box Hill in Sydney’s North West. “The display home is all about the living area to the rear and the master suite opening onto the alfresco, but if privacy is more your thing, try moving the glass stacker doors on the master to the rear wall to create a very private courtyard off the back of the home,” says Nathan.
For those who love to entertain, the designer chef’s kitchen is a delight. It offers incredible storage, generous benchtops and a butler’s pantry, making it the perfect place to cater for parties or cook smaller, casual family meals. What’s more, its central location in the large family/living and dining space, which opens out to the alfresco cabana, means the chef is always part of the action.
The kitchen is a picture of contemporary design. This can be seen in the window splashback, Caesarstone Statuario Maximus benchtops, Polytec Molong cabinetry in Blossom White Satin, Kethy brass horizontal-edge pull handles, and Fischer & Paykel appliances, including an integrated dishwasher and refrigerator.
Throughout, from the home theatre to the bathrooms, great care was given to the selection of materials and fittings to create an aura of opulence. This is evident in the enchanting herringbone flooring in the main living area, the use of brushed gold features (from tapware to light fittings) and the lavish gold-veined ensuite tiles.
The opulence extends to the display home’s Ballarat facade. “New to McDonald Jones, the facade boasts an elegant feature wall which creates a spectacularly stylish street presence of golden hues set against pearl white marble,” adds Nathan. “Suited to any location — the serene countryside, glittering coast or sprawling suburbia — the Miami 16, with its flowing floor plan and undeniable street appeal, creates the perfect canvas for everyday life.”
