With the residential building boom in full swing on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane, DJ Builders is at the cutting edge of design development and has taken advantage of the buoyant economy to fine tune its most innovative designs.
The tri-level Brando 3 provides ample outdoor living space with a timber-decked front verandah at the entry, a five-sided patio off the family living rooms, and balconies servicing the bedrooms on the highest level.
These facilities make entertaining a breeze, and are further enhanced with a spacious games or media room on the lower level, complete with ensuite and storage cupboard. This convenient, informal area opens up through aluminium sliders to access the garden and small patio.
Internal timber stairs lead up to the middle level where the family meets to eat, converse and relax. With just a hint of colonial times, timber is used again with effect to fashion railings, decking, window overhangs and decorative slats that help dress up the eye-catching façade.
A well-equipped kitchen incorporates a wine bottle rack in the breakfast bar, flecked grey granite benchtops, up-to-the-minute utility storage, stainless-steel Bosch appliances, a glass-tiled splashback, a petite bi-fold window and side louvres near the sink.
The large formal lounge room at the front of the Brando 3 is set apart from the open-plan family/meals area and allows access to the front verandah through double glass doors.
Sturdy square brick piers distinguish the façade of this home, which boasts wide entry stairs and light-catching oblong glass panels at the side of the front door.
Occupiers of the master bedroom are in for a treat with the provision of roomy his-and-hers walk-in robes, the double shower, round ceramic basins, cutaway walls and fully white-tiled walls.
Visitors to Coomera Springs can also see the second home in DJ Builders’ Gallery series, The Renoir. Among this modern home’s many attractions is a state-of-the-art media room.
DJ Builders shows its versatility with a wide variety of homes, from colonial and federation creations to groundbreaking contemporary designs. A choice of façade pleases clients who wish for standout street appeal. Clients can take advantage of a free, computer-assisted design service to help with sloping and difficult blocks.
DJ Builders has built more than 1500 homes in the greater Brisbane area since 1973, mainly for second and subsequent homebuyers and has won numerous QMBA awards. All DJ homes are designed and built to the same high quality and provide a variety of layouts to accommodate most lifestyles.
