Clever Design in Clifton Springs
8 Mar, 2019
Nestled snugly in a backyard in the coastal town of Clifton Springs is this charming Woodgrove granny flat. This picturesque town is located on the Ballarine Peninsula near Geelong. With a few modifications to the original lay-out, this Woodgrove granny flat has been tailor-made to suit our client.
Wheelchair access to the granny flat can be found at the rear of the building, featuring a beautifully built ramp that opens up onto a generously sized deck; taking in the lovely sea breeze will be a true pleasure. The sliding glass door serving as the access point to the living/dining area adds convenience, lets in more natural light and allows for easy access for those with restricted mobility.
The interior is spacious and boasts a classic colour palette of whites and slate greys. This helps to both make the space feel bigger and more open, while bringing contrast and warmth throughout with the darker greys of the carpet and bench tops.
One thing the owners of this granny flat will not go wanting for is storage space. The kitchen alone has around two dozen cupboards and drawers, as well as an enormous corner pantry. That’s not to mention the housing for the microwave, built in right above the wall oven. The ceramic stove top is a sleek and easy to clean upgrade which ties in nicely with the polished dark grey of the benchtops. The fridge space is tucked discreetly to the side and allows the kitchen space to open out into the living/dining area and make the space feel even bigger than it already is. The over-bench pendant lighting is a stylish touch and compliments the sleek, modern feel of this kitchen quite nicely.
The living and dining area is open plan and features a bay window, with the potential for a bench seat to be put in place; a split system unit for optimum climate control; and a sliding glass door that opens out onto the deck and frames the backyard beautifully. While the living room area has thick, plush carpet in a dark charcoal, the kitchen and dining space has been fitted with the obvious and practical choice of our hard-wearing, high quality vinyl flooring, for a beautiful and easy to clean woodgrain look.
A decorative feature of this granny flat is the turned post and balustrade by the front door that helps to define the transition between the living room space and the dining area. This is not only an attractive feature, but also helps to “break up” the space, without actually compromising the open-plan flow of the space.
Both bedrooms are generously proportioned, and each boasts its’ own built in wardrobe, with plenty of hanging space, three-tier shelving and an over-head storage shelf. Ceiling fans have been installed for elevated air flow and added climate control during the warmer months. The master suit even has the added feature of mirrored doors to the wardrobe, which will reflect the room and give the illusion of an even bigger space and a discreet sliding door that provides access to the bathroom.
The bathroom in the Woodgrove is a testament to the skill and dedication our team here at Premier Homes have to provide the very best in space-conscious design. With our standard 1200mm x 900mm fully molded fiber-glass shell shower, featuring a low lip base for safe and easy access. This Clifton Springs granny flat show-cases our up-grade options of grab rails and the Armada hand shower, ensuring a safe and user friendly shower for those with limited mobility. The water closet and hideaway laundry add extra privacy and truly capitalise on the space available, leaving plenty of floor space to maneuver, whilst also having the added convenience of being neatly stored out of sight.
With the quality, care and attention to detail we strive for here at Premier Homes, we are confident that all of our clients will feel secure and content with the finished product. We want our clients to feel right at home from the moment they move in. Overall, it certainly won’t take much to make this beautiful granny flat a much loved home.
