For those after a smaller home and low-maintenance living, Gallery Living's Dali Villa 170 will be the perfect size for retirees, singles and couples

Dali Villa 170 is a space saver

Proving you can build a spacious home on a narrow block, Gallery Living's three-bedroom, two-bathroom Dali Villa 170 has been architecturally designed to maximise spaciousness.

Long and narrow, and designed to fit on villa blocks, the Dali Villa 170 reduces the need for passages and includes two living areas to create an open feel for modern living. The addition of an open-plan living/dining/ kitchen zone at the rear further increases its sense of space.

Although the Dali Villa is at the smaller end of the home-buying spectrum with a total of 156sqm, it is ideal for retirees, couples or first home buyers looking for a home that's not too big to look after, but larger than a homette.

The single hallway down the centre of the home creates an easy-flow floorplan with more spaces than you may expect. The master bedroom is positioned at the front, complete with a spacious ensuite and walk-in robe. The first living area is subtly tucked away from the street for privacy and quiet, providing an alternative option to the main living area, while opposite it is a study, which could also be a nursery, playroom or even a fourth bedroom.

It's an addition that will not go to waste. Branching off the hallway are bedrooms two and three, both with built-in wardrobes and natural light streaming through the large windows. A practical three-way bathroom in proximity to the bedrooms allows for multiple users. The division of this room makes the most of the space and promotes easy living.

The good-sized laundry backs on to the main bathroom, a welcome surprise for a design of this size - and it also provides direct outdoor access. The Dali Villa 170 is suited to blocks 9m or 10m wide making it perfect for subdivisions and also the more affordable blocks within them. The smaller allotment also goes hand-in-hand with low-maintenance living, both inside and outside the home.

The Dali Villa is also available in two slightly smaller configurations - the 130 and 155.

Features you'll love

Welcoming entrance: You don't realise how much you appreciate an undercover entrance until it's pouring with rain and you can't find your keys.

Master privileges: If a large master bedroom isn't enough, the walk-in wardrobe with ample hanging space and storage plus ensuite complete with shower and large vanity ought to do the trick.

Garage included: This narrow design has even allowed room for a single garage.
