98 Blamey Crescent is a home for busy people. It’s functional, requires next-to-no maintenance and is only about a five-minute drive to the city centre.
Built in 2017 and still in as-new condition, the home was thoughtfully designed with broad appeal in mind. There are oodles of storage spaces, a versatile floor plan with multiple living zones, two studies and luxurious bedrooms.
Once inside, you only have to look at the detail in the ceiling or the masses of custom cabinetry to be impressed by the quality of the build. This feeling is merely heightened by the use of stone walls and feature lighting throughout the home to add texture and interest.
Outside is equally as exciting with lush wraparound gardens, thriving hedges and raised vegetable garden plots.
The house’s energy efficiency rating and orientation classes it a “smart home”. Given the intense summer we have just endured, this feature is only going to become more important in years to come.
Any and every family would be lucky to call this place home.
