The Modified Daintree has been designed for family fun and functionality.
With a few small changes to the standard GJ Gardner plan, the Daintree is a home designed for the growing family, but also has areas for all generations to have some “me” time.
The design was taken from one of the thousands of standard plans available through GJ Gardner Homes and the clients felt this design best suited their growing family. They wanted a northeasterly aspect with entertaining space, hence the home was designed with this in mind. It was important that the main living areas were all connected to the outdoor entertaining area, so all living areas open to the alfresco entertaining and pool area.
From the formal entrance, the imposing hall winds its way past the master suite, office and formal lounge, past the rumpus room and delivers guests into the open-plan living room. The owners wanted all living areas to receive sunlight together. Fantastic natural light floods in from ample north-facing windows and an open alfresco area that acts as a central courtyard, tying together all the living areas.
The kitchen/family room is the stunning centrepiece of the home, featuring essastone Praline benchtops, Smeg appliances and its own wine cellar and bar fridge under the centre island. Built by The Kitchenmen, the kitchen features satin polyurethane cupboards in Dune and White, with classic-style doors and a brilliant splash of colour thanks to a fire-engine-red glass splashback.
The bathrooms feature Mizu 1500 series tapware and accessories, while a double shower is an inviting addition to the master bathroom. Walls throughout are painted in half-strength Dulux Hog Bristle and flooring is rich Boral brushbox timber. The owners also added downlights throughout.
Outside, the gardens are fully landscaped (by M K Landscaping) and irrigated, with the inground pool and water feature adding that something special to the outdoor space. There were no construction challenges to overcome with the quick preconstruction stage and a smooth build process. The block had a great aspect as GJ Gardner had chosen this specifically for the client.
This home caters for all family members with separate areas for alone time. These separate areas all converge onto one amazing entertaining area that brings the family together.
