Verona Display Shows Why 'Warm' Works

17 March 2016

Teaming dark timber tones with steely-grey stone, concrete-look floors and a touch of smoky-black glass, the colour palette is just one of the reasons why people are talking about the Verona.

Not only does the unexpected choice of colours and finishes look amazing, but the warm, moody styling also emphasises a long list of wow-factor features in this new Baldivis display home.

From the super-long benchtops and reflective glass splashback in the kitchen, to the extended cabinetry in the hotel-inspired ensuite and the warmth of the tactile timber cladding in the entry hallway, the colour choices bring out all the home’s highlights.

Dave Clynk, Design Manager at Plunkett Homes, says photographs of a stunning apartment in the Ukraine had proved to be the “style driver” for the Verona’s interiors.

Apply the concept to a well-zoned four-bedroom floor plan and a host of deluxe features, and the result is a display home that is prompting shouts of “Wait ’til you see in here!” from visitors.

“Not only have we taken certain elements in a different direction, but we have created so many options with this home,” Dave says.

“It’s such a blank canvas in many ways. You could chop the specification right back, go the whole hog with all the features or tailor it to suit your own ideas.”

With a starting price of a little over $200,000 and a display price of just over $300,000, including the extended bathroom countertop and the glass kitchen splashback, the Verona is great news for buyers who want to focus on the features they like the most.

“It’s about versatility and clients being able to change aspects of the design to suit their tastes and needs,” Dave says.

Fresh white walls and big windows keep the interiors feeling light and spacious, while accentuating the Verona’s three thoughtful, free-flowing zones.

The three minor bedrooms have been arranged towards the front of the house, with the kids’ bathroom split into a trio of separate sections to create a functional layout that can prove a big time saver for busy families.

At the back of the home, a vast wall of glass opens up the main kitchen and living area to the double-sized alfresco, creating one huge indoor/outdoor living and entertaining space.

The sensational kitchen flows straight through into a scullery area with a concealed area of shelving, extra cupboards and the flexibility to easily accommodate a handy computer nook.

In the luxurious master suite, Plunkett has created a five-star ensuite with a semi-freestanding bath, and a window between the shower and the large walk-in wardrobe.

The designers have emphasised the hotel-inspired ambience by keeping the bathroom completely open to the bedroom and extending the vanity countertop along the length of one wall of the bedroom. Sliding doors lead from the bedroom to a private outdoor area.

On Morwell Loop in the Baldivis Parks estate, the Verona is open to view 2pm-5pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, and 1pm-5pm on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. The home has been designed for a 15m-wide block.
