Designed for 12.5m wide block, the Eastleigh uses its space carefully, so you honestly won’t believe its only 25 squares. Belonging to our Advantage range of homes, the Eastleigh is perfect for young families with style.
Featuring our Contemporary Boston World of Style, this home has a moody and warm industrial feel, with a masculine undertone. Using a mostly soft grey base colour palette, warmth is added through dark timbers and contrast created through injection of burnt orange hues and navy blues. The Boston style channels an industrial look that is all about displaying raw materials you would normally hide.
Once upon a time Boston style equated to period furniture and crystal chandeliers, as the young elite followed the lead of the Boston Brahmins — the city’s old upper class. Nowadays it’s an eclectic mix of old and new; battered leather furniture complementing chrome and nickel details, as well as industrial elements like weathered natural timbers. Architecture and home design in Boston has evolved well beyond the 17th century elegance to meet the contemporary styles popular today.
As you enter the open-plan family, dining and kitchen area you can immediately feel the expansiveness provided by a striking raked ceiling, giving that industrial loft atmosphere.
Styled with a semi-weathered tan leather couch adorned with yellow and blue cushions, the living area pays homage to traditional Boston style by keeping the overall vibe sophisticated and high-end with just a touch of antique.
Floor tiles give an illusion of cool exposed concrete, with marble flecks and stone chips throughout. The new Boston style is industrial with just a touch of feminine, demonstrated by floor-to-ceiling sheer curtains and lively floral arrangements.
Moving into the kitchen, the industrial vibe is continued with matte black track lights that frame a stunning stone island bench with waterfall edges. It’s the epitome of class. Dark timber cabinetry gives depth to a mostly white colour palette.
But it’s the range hood that’s the unexpected feature of this kitchen; with the cabinetry installed up to the ceiling, it really showcases the height of this room.
Similarly to Melburnians, Bostonites share a cultural pastime of complaining about the weather, despite this, they both have a shared love for the outdoors.
The alfresco in the Eastleigh is uniquely placed at the side of the home, creating a truly cohesive indoor and outdoor space that’s functional all year.
The styling has continued with matte black fixtures and finishes, but it’s kept fresh with plenty of greenery to offset.
The master bedroom is kept minimal with large windows so the natural light can do the talking. Soft sheers give privacy while giving the room a feminine touch.
In the ensuite you’ll be welcomed to an extended shower and large double vanity, with plenty of undermount storage. The industrial detailing follows with matte black tapwear & brass detailing.
The back of the home feature three secondary bedrooms that wrap around the communal rumpus area, cleverly created as a children area hub.
We’re not afraid of bold colours, with one of the bedrooms painted in the signature navy blue that is prevalent in this display.
Remember to use the bedrooms how you see fit. We’ve converted one into a home office, perfect for the current Work From Home lifestyle many of us have.
Loads of natural light fills up the main bathroom with the addition of the sky light above. White subway tiles keep this room fresh and modern, and its paired with a complimentary dark timber vanity.
Matte black framed mirror helps expand the space and adds an industrial touch, without having to install upmarket tapwear. Feature artwork is immediately striking above the free standing soaker tub, by adding hue of oranges.
Featuring Pantones 2020 colour of the year – Classic Blue, the rumpus room creates a comfortable and relaxing space. Accents with orange give a pop to the room. This diverse space could be used as a theatre, games room or even home gym.
The Eastleigh 25 features our brand new facade the Albany, it’s a contemporary exterior that’s bound to catch everyone’s eye. Light coloured tiles frames the home as well as giving a modern touch, with a dark timber door to contrast.
