Located in the rugged heart of Eastern Victoria, with the scenic Gippsland Lakes right on its doorstep, the Belford 28 featuring the striking Stirling facade effortlessly pays tribute to its surrounding coastal influences.
Bricks in Shale from Austral Bricks, James Hardie Scyon Axon cladding and render painted in Shale Grey Colorbond and Basalt Colorbond from Haymes Paint respectively, all come together to create a medley of contrasting colours and weathered textures on the home’s facade.
The Belford 28 provides Gippsland home owners in the likes of Eagle Point, Paynesville and Metung with a timeless design that seamlessly blends with their way of life, while still managing to stand out from the crowd.
At the core of the home’s design is a free-flowing kitchen, living and dining that flows out to an alfresco, providing its owners with an enviable open plan layout and an ease of movement between the inside and the out. Whether you’re keeping an eye on children playing outside or hosting friends and family, the direct line of sight is a convenient and considered choice.
On the recent award, East Gippsland New Home Specialist, Chris Cullen, was not at all surprised with the win,
“It’s a great family home and still very affordable, which is important in the current market. Without a doubt, the most well-received part of the Belford 28 home has been the kids' retreat and study nook, this probably reflects the year that we’ve had, with COVID keeping the children at home.”
While the study nook is tucked away from the kitchen and living areas for peace and quiet, internal plantation shutters expertly provide a subtle connection to the main areas of the home, creating “a great place for the kids to study and relax without disrupting the entire household”, Cullen said.
With three separate living spaces, the Belford 28 strikes the perfect balance of spaces that household members can retreat to, while still allowing them to come together as one and spend quality time together.
As you wander throughout the home, weaving from the spacious master retreat at the front to the communal spaces at the rear, fresh white interiors are balanced by the warmth of Istanbul Oak flooring from Perfect Timber Floors and the industrial edge of Caesarstone benchtops in Raw Concrete and I Cocci Cenere tiles from National Tiles.
If a trip down to Gippsland is a little too far out of your way, explore our Belford 28 featuring the Mackay facade on display at the Rathdowne Estate, Wollert, VIC.
The display in Wollert continues to echo laid-back coastal living, with VJ wall panelling throughout the home adding the perfect hint of rustic charm.
