The Marsden: Where Functionality and Lifestyle Meet

May 2023 In Entertaining

When choosing your home design you’ll want to know two things, ‘Will this home be practical and functional?’ and ‘Will this home meet the needs of my family, now and into the future?’

With the Marsden 394 Series 4 by Dennis Family Homes, it’s a resounding YES, providing flexible family living via the clever use of layout and zoning providing homebuilders the opportunity to customise a floorplan to suit their personalised needs.

This two storey home is all about wide open spaces and effortless, modern style. Perfect for lots as compact as 12.5m, the clever layout of the Marsden captures the concept of expansive open plan living throughout the ground floor, including a separate study and additional living area, and the traditional approach upstairs with four bedrooms featuring walk in robes, and an extra lounge room, ensuring this family oasis ticks all the boxes.

Flexible living zone options

From the moment you step into the Marsden, you’ll be wowed by the multiple flexible living zones to suit the whole family. Away from the hub of the home is a separate living space at the front of the house that can be used as a library, an adult retreat or even a guest room, and the large study area can be used in multiple ways from a private study for those wanting to work from home or home-based business to a family study area. And with the handy inclusion of the powder room including a shower only steps away, further flexibility for a growing family or visiting guests is available.  An additional lounge area upstairs also allows for a quiet area away from the main living zone.

Family time is the focus across the wide open plan extensive living area that stretches across the rear of the home. Abundant natural light flows through large windows and sliding doors, which allows a natural flow from one area to the next. Encompassing the kitchen, family, meals and games room, this area, plus the added space of the alfresco makes the Marsden such a draw-card for families that love to relax or entertain.

Picture yourself catching up with the kids over dinner after a long day, then head to the conveniently adjoined living area to relax and unwind, or enjoy the large sliding doors allowing for a seamless extension of the indoor living areas to the outdoor providing living space options any time of year.

This well-appointed entertainers kitchen features modern design twists with the use of sophisticated white and timber cabinetry highlighted against the grey tones of the flooring and splashback. The timber tones are further enhanced with the eye-catching island accent making this kitchen’s sleek design pop.

Entertainers will also love the fully customisable light-filled butler’s pantry for the perfect second prep space. Enjoy the likes of a cooktop, rangehood, sink, dishwasher and additional storage, completely concealed behind a sliding door, so any mess and cooking utensils are hidden from view and the main kitchen area.

Cleverly designed bedrooms

You’ll love the separate bedroom zone capturing all four bedrooms on the first floor, providing the comfort of having the family all on one floor at night.

The master bedroom suite sits at the front of the property and has been cleverly designed to ensure privacy and separation from the kids’ zone. It’s all about maximizing space in the master bedroom with the ensuite accessed via the walk in robes allowing for double basins, shower, separate WC and free standing bath.

The well-designed and thought out luxe dressing space, which is more like a dressing room in size, maximises space and functionality and is big enough to accommodate his and her wardrobes. Completely separated from the bedroom area, parents can move to and from the ensuite and dressing area without the need to go through the bedroom space.

Three further generous bedrooms, all big enough for both a double bed and desk, each have walk in robes, making it the ideal zone for a growing family. The kids’ zone also ensures busy morning routines are never an issue with a separate bathroom complete with double basins, shower, bath and a separate toilet. And two linen closets close by mean all your storage needs are well covered.

The lounge space upstairs provides a further space across the home for the kids to play games, relax or watch a movie, or alternatively can be used as a relaxing parents retreat.

So, no matter what the size of your family, the Marsden has a living space just for you!  There are seven facade designs available across the Marsden, with the stylish Tempo on display at Kaduna Park, Officer South.
