Easily one of the largest in the Commodore display series, the Corsica is big and flexible enough to accommodate a growing family.
The facade is contemporary with neutral, grey-toned render, planter boxes and a Colorbond roof. Full-length vertical front windows are mirrored in the vertical glass panes in the double front doors.
Timber decking leads to the front door under a sheltered porch and inside the home is a long foyer with access to the double garage which is extra-long to provide handy storage space.
Commodore Homes’ brand manager said the brief for the design of this five– bedroom, two-bathroom home focused on space. “With many of the homes on the market, one room has to be sacrificed to include another, such as a missing bedroom to add in a study, but with this home, it’s all included,” he said.
“The fifth bedroom can be converted to a games room if it’s not needed, or kept as a handy guest room. “Another attractive feature of this home is the centralised living area where the kitchen is literally in the centre of the home."
Natural light is utilised to its fullest extent, with sliding glass doors out to the alfresco and windows through to the web zone from outside. “This home is destined to be a popular seller for Commodore, both for its design and value for money.”
At the front of the home is the main suite, which has a long walk-in robe behind the bed. The ensuite has a double vanity, a big shower with pivot door and a separate toilet. Also opening from the foyer is a home theatre which could double as a formal lounge.
The open-plan living area is spacious and surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that let in natural light. At one end is a double sliding glass door leading to the alfresco area, enabling the whole space to be opened up for entertaining.
The kitchen, which is delineated by a dropped ceiling, has an island bench breakfast bar and a double-door pantry. At the back of the house is the children’s wing, which has an impressive four double bedrooms, plus a web zone, which could be used for computers for older children, or as a play room for young ones.
There is a clever internal window to the living area which enables parents to keep an eye on their children. Also in this area is a bathroom with bath and pivot– door shower, a separate toilet and a linen cupboard.
The Corsica has a living space of 221sqm and total area of 282sqm.
