Bright and contemporary, Gallery Living has
created a unique home with the Warhol 230
From any perspective, the Warhol 230 design by Gallery Living has a clear goal: let the outdoors in and create a light, bright home where walls of glass connect the interior with the exterior.
Designed with this in mind, the home sits on a squarish H-shaped footprint of 230sqm, with a 16.8m width and a 16.2m depth, and ideally suits a square or wide block.
It's a popular design with families who enjoy the contemporary layout where two wings have been created.
Behind the double garage are the sleeping quarters with three secondary bedrooms, the main bathroom and separate toilet and storage.
A study nook outside the bedrooms has been added for technology use, so children don't stay cooped up in their rooms or take over the living spaces.
The other wing takes in the living quarters as well as the master bedroom, ensuite and laundry.
The main bedroom, at the front of the home, is spacious and made comfortable with carpet.
The bedroom has been given two sets of built-in robes for much-needed clothing storage and the luxury of an ensuite with a large shower.
The open plan kitchen/ dining/family flows through to the central rear courtyard, with plenty of space for the family to enjoy an uncluttered sense of living.
Here, privacy has also been considered as the exterior side wall in this wing is left solid, so if the home sits close to a neighbour, the family's privacy is assured.
Central to the design, and the entrance, is the formal lounge which is sectioned off from each wing, but also opens to the rear courtyard.
The courtyard, with access from the family and lounge areas, offers great privacy and is an ideal spot for entertaining as it acts as an outdoor room. You could later add a pergola here and grow a vine over it as a beautiful garden feature.
Other inclusions such as Thermatech thermal protection keep the home comfortable throughout the year.
Exterior options are a personal choice, here the Warhol 230 is given a fresh timber look and fibre cement cladding with render for a contemporary feel, but the range also includes solid timber and other finishes.
