The Hoffman Villa
Sophisticated, streamlined, light-filled and extravagant space are descriptions that come readily to mind on entry to the gorgeous Hoffman Villa 35, a double-storey beauty from Porter Davis, recently opened as a display in The Maples estate in Greenvale.
The crisp-white colour palette, with black accents and window frames, underscores the utterly contemporary take on the Milan World of Style designer theme, with a stunning gold pendant in the dining area particularly announcing its intention. The chevron-patterned flooring down the entry way and into the first space – an open theatre/reception room (tailor-made for family movies or a gracious retreat when entertaining) – take wooden floors to a new level. Tall windows dressed in sheers deliver a drifty counterbalance, while the wainscoting is sheer class.
Head past a stylish open-tread black staircase, with laundry tucked behind and a chic powder room opposite, to find an enclosed study, perfectly positioned to still be in touch (or not) with family activities in the upcoming living domain. Marble chevron-patterned splash back tiles, a wonderful stone island bench with curved end, acres of bench space, streamlined cabinetry with lots of drawers, and a huge picture window behind the sink make the all-white kitchen a dream space for cook and entertainer. It’s accompanied by a big walk-in pantry.
Of the four fitted bedrooms upstairs, the carpeted lavish main has wainscoting and feature wall-panelling, loads of light through full-height/width sheers, and two walk-in robes – plus balcony access. The luxe en suite, with dual basins, subtle marble-style tiling, and matte-black tapware and shower frames is a fitting companion. As is the sleek main bathroom (toilet separate).
A carpeted large living area is also upstairs, a space that any family will value for its multi-use functionality. Accessed via a wide slider, the alfresco area has a pair of black ceiling fans, and paving extending out to the back garden for soaking up the sun. And the double garage has internal access to a compact mud room.
