Stylish, modern, chic –The Franklin is a mark of sophistication for an affordable price.
According to Sales Director Marco DeCarolis, the home was borne of the idea that beautiful, inspiring homes can still be affordable.
The elevation is modern contemporary, with soft colours and features, with beautiful glass balustrading and front double entry doors that give the home an air of sophistication unseen in many modern homes.
And it’s not just the façade that is stunningly elegant –the beauty extends well beyond the front door.
The interior architecture is the epitome of minimalism, starting with the long lines of the stainless steel balustrading of the staircase, to the quality stone kitchen bench tops.
One of the most appealing features of the home is the long, striking entrance hallway, not to mention the stunning study, designer kitchen and luxurious master suite.
The upper level consists of three large bedrooms, a perfectly-finished bathroom and a large sitting room, with large, glass windows.
Marco says this home design is perfect for blocks with a view.
The airy, open-plan living space leads out towards a stylish outdoor living area –a true entertainer’s dream.
On one side of the outdoor area is a pool with stunning water features, whilst on the other side of the outdoor area is the reflection pond.
Similarly, the master bedroom looks out over the pond area and includes an enormous walk-in robe that is light and airy, which Marco says is easily the most popular feature for people looking to design and build their own.
Marco says the best part of having this open home available is that people are able to visit and choose elements that they would love to see in their own home.
“A lot of our homes people pick certain parts of our homes and then build around that,”Marco says.
“People don’t build our homes they build elements of our homes, that’s what’s actually very good for our company.”
Domination Homes ensures an “affordable quality build”, where depending on your budget, quality doesn’t drop but size and dimension are easily adjusted to save money.
On a narrow block, Marco says, the frontage can be reduced to fit the home on the lot.
Similarly, on a larger block, the home can be increased in size.
The Franklin has been on display now for two and a half years and has seen approximately 2000 viewers walk through it. Marco says this is one of the more affordable of their display homes, offering great value for money whilst not compromising on its quality. While their recently sold home in Port Coogee is a much more opulent build, new display homes to replace this build are opening soon in Applecross &Yokine.
Available for you to visit and pick elements of the design that you would love for your own unique home, the Franklin is open on Wednesdays from 2pm to 5pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 1pm to 5pm.
A message from Domenic Minniti
It’s been a great 2016 at Domination Homes, and we are just as excited for 2017.
The building industry in 2017 is set to see some tough times ahead, especially now with the recent news of the Builton Group collapsing it is more important than ever for prospective clients to pick your builder carefully, it is hugely important that you’re dealing with a builder who has been around for a long time. We have been around since 1981. Our company has financial stability as well as land and building assets so you can be assured that we can see your property build all the way through to completion.
Domination Homes in 2017 are going to be working on a number of large and important developments as well as many client homes.We are working on our beautiful new Applecross display home, together with another two-storey home being built behind it. The display home is a stunning, elaborate two-storey home, with finishes to the highest quality, a sensational master bedroom with huge dressing room and ensuite.
The design has incorporated a scullery again as we did with the Port Coogee display. The scullery has been hugely popular with our clients and Domination Homes were the first builder in the Port Coogee area to have a scullery in their display home. As a trend-setter in the building industry we have noticed a lot of builders have followed us with this design. What we have done for the new display is revamp the scullery and have incorporated it into the new design as well as an exciting winestore incorporated in the design. Very exciting!
This year, we will have a very large presence in the Morley area, including 3 individually designed duplexes (6 individual units) on Halvorson road, as well as a large 28 apartment development on Vera Street with the majority of the units having city views, and finally another townhouse development on Vera Street for a client. We have 7 apartments on Haddrill Street in Bayswater, close to the soon-to-be upgraded train station in Bayswater, which will have the Airport Link running through. This will transform Bayswater into a popular boutique type area much like Leederville and Subiaco.
Another exciting project we are working on in 2017 is our new company image. A lot of our homes are starting to go towards a more contemporary look which is timeless, which has inspired us. With the calibre of home we are delivering, Domination Homes has come a long way with its quality control, with designs, so in line with this we will launch a new logo as part of our re-brand.
In terms of the trends that we are seeing in homes this year, clients are now catering for smaller compact lots with smaller frontage homes, more narrow lot homes which we have plans and specifications for. Due to smaller block sizes, people are looking to minimize overall space while trying to make better use of the space that they have to work with. With smaller spaces we are seeing cleaner lines, light colours, no clutter. Everything has a purpose and place in these new homes. Industrial colours are still being used such as greys. Retro has been in, and is still in, however it looks like it is at the end of its popularity. The new look is moving back to very clean white surfaces, lots of open spaces and trying to maximize visual space.
There is a lot on the horizon for the company this year, and we are looking forward to sharing our triumphs with you.
A beautiful Australian climate means that we’re lucky enough to be able to spend the majority of the year outside comfortably. There’s nothing better that enjoying a chilled glass of white on your deck on a balmy summer’s night. So when it comes to designing your new home, put your mind towards how to use the space you have, how to optimise these spacesand take into consideration outdoor spaces. Whether you’re on a large piece of land or working with a narrow block, with the right Perth home builders, you can optimise your outdoor living area to create beautiful spaces on any block. Here are some things to keep in mind when thinking about how to create the best outdoor space for your new home.
Create Flow Between Indoor and Outdoor
In 2017, a trend to watch is a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living. In a climate where being outside is preferable most months of the year, it makes sense to optimise your space by incorporating your outdoor area to your indoor living. With doors that can open up completely, you can effectively create an additional living space during the summer months. Outdoor kitchens are rising in popularity and if you have the space, this can be great for entertaining in the warmer months. However, in a narrow lot building, where you’re limited for space, doors and windows that open up completely to a small courtyard or pool can mean that you’re not compromising on space inside but doubling your space outside when the weather permits.
Open Plan Living
We’ve all heard this phrase being throw around when it comes to Perth homes, but what exactly does this mean? Open plan living is definitely rising in popularity as it optimises space and creates a flow throughout areas in your home. Combining kitchen, dining and living rooms creates more open spaces and will effectively connect your spacious indoor living area to your outdoor living. Dining space is always a safe bet to open up from and this will make it particularly easy when entertaining as you’ll have twice the amount of space once those doors are wide open.
All the Bells and Whistles
Spending time outside is undoubtedly part of the Australian lifestyle. These days there’s a push to move as much as possible outdoors. Think about an outdoor projector screen to watch footy games on, or a pizza oven with a kitchenette for entertaining in the summer. Obviously, pool areas are ideal in Australia and even if you are on a narrow lot building, there’s a pool for any sized area.
So when it comes to building your new home, Domination Homes can help you get the most out of any sized block. With summers like these, it would be a crime to waste your outdoor space! We can help you design the perfect flow from inside to outside so that you’ll optimise your space every month of the year and create beautiful spaces that you’ll never want to leave.
