Something for everyone with the Cosgrove and Olinda

October 2017 In General News

Dennis Family Homes has recently unveiled two beautiful new displays at Arcadia estate in Officer.

The five-bedroom Cosgrove 343 Resort and four-bedroom Olinda 263 Vogue on display are both spacious family homes that showcase very different floorplans to the public.

Adrian Keleher, Dennis Family Homes Area Manager for Metro South, feels the company’s decision to build such different homes side-by-side at Officer has been very successful, as recent visitors to the displays have come along with very different requirements.

“Both displays show our customers that we are in the business of designing and building homes for families,” says Adrian.

“The Olinda 263 has broad appeal for young families and downsizers, while the Cosgrove 343, on the other hand, is an attractive proposition for big families who are looking for a spacious, single-storey home.”

Cosgrove 343 Resort

As a large five-bedroom home with two bathrooms and three living spaces, the Cosgrove 343 has been designed to suit blocks from 16 metres wide. This single-storey home presents an appealing option to both urban and country dwellers who may have a larger block on which to build their dream home. 

The home’s floorplan features an open-plan living area across the rear, which leads directly through a spacious alfresco to the backyard.  

The well-appointed kitchen overlooks the garden and is conveniently serviced by the adjacent butler’s pantry and a laundry with external access to the side of the home.

Four large secondary bedrooms all have walk-in robes and occupy their own private wing at the front of the home, accessed via a corridor off the central hallway.  Further along, the master bedroom suite is filled with light and enhanced by a luxurious ensuite with double vanity, large shower and separate WC.  A fitted walk-in robe completes the package.

The Cosgrove is available in three sizes ranging from four-bedroom 29 square and 31 square versions through to the large 34 square, five-bedroom version on display at Officer.  Customers have eight facades to choose from.

Olinda 263 Vogue

In contrast, the Olinda 263 showcases an efficient design that is perfectly sized for a 12.5 metre wide block and, as a result, appeals to young families and downsizers alike.

A light-filled home that features four spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms, the Olinda offers plenty of room to spread out with an open family living area that offers side and rear access to the garden and a large, centrally located second living space.

The kitchen itself has wide-ranging appeal with loads of bench space and deep drawers.  The butler’s pantry tucked in behind the kitchen is sure to delight, as is the handy built-in storage located in the home’s central hallway.

A hidden study nook near the bedrooms, complete with storage cupboard, ticks another box for families.

The Olinda is available in two sizes, the 26 square version on display at Officer and a smaller 24 square version. This home has been designed with the option for customers to ‘flip’ the floorplan from behind the garage, a handy way to orientate the home more effectively for a corner block or solar access.  Customers can choose from eight different facades.

Open daily from 11am to 5pm, the Dennis Family Homes display centre is located in Gatsby Drive, Arcadia estate in Officer.
