Stand-out street presence is just the start with this roomy, well-appointed family residence by Landmark Homes

New family home offers open-plan layouts, a sharp street presence and large outdoor living area

Great looks are one thing in a new home, and day-to-day functionality is another – the secret of a skilled house builder is to marry the two seamlessly.

Landmark Homes creates quality family homes that are a pleasure to live in and add to the calibre of the streetscape they form part of, says Landmark Homes franchisor Debbie Clarke.

"Our new four-bedroom Rata showhome is a reflection of this. From the street, the Rata's Colorsteel Longrun roof and low-upkeep classic Linea weatherboard make a strong statement."

Entering through the solid wood front door, you step into the gracious foyer with the living room, dining area, and second living space straight ahead, running the length of the home.

The entertainer's kitchen with walk-in pantry serves all these spaces as well as the outdoor entertaining area. The latter is accessed by double doors off the living spaces and has a large portico, making it ideal for year-round use.

The master suite is at the front of the home, to the right, with the double garage, most other bedrooms and the main bathroom to the left.

"Everything in the Rata is organised to optimise social connections but to provide a sense of separation if required," says Clarke."However, it's also the little touches that make this home so enjoyable to live in – the sleek kitchen splashback, the cute rear porch, two built-in gas fires in the living areas, the walk-in master wardrobe and the schist portico columns. Plus, the Rata's warm year-round due to above-code insulation."
