Make it your own

The Country Living Collection by McDonald Jones Homes offers a range
of luxury acreage home designs, ideally suited for wide, rural lots.

Leave the hustle and bustle behind and enjoy country living at its best. With grand façades, expansive windows and open-plan layouts, these homes are perfect for family living.
The first display home to feature the Newhampton façade, Hermitage Grande Encore has just been opened at HomeWorld in Thornton.

A sophisticated colour palette of whites and greys gives this home instant kerb appeal with Hamptons picket balustrading and a Colorbond monoclad profiled roof creating the ultimate welcoming country vibe.

Step inside and experience luxury finishes like the warm, timber floors laid in a herringbone pattern, wall panelling, high skirting and detailed architraves.

Designed to enhance space and light, the spacious open living and dining area with its dramatic cathedral-style ceiling sits at the heart of the home with an elegant fireplace as a showstopping centre piece.

The kitchen boasts 40mm veined stone benchtops, profiled joinery with fluted overhead glazing, tower cabinetry, integrated appliances and even a wine fridge. It comes with the ultimate entertaining island and statement lighting for just the right amount of drama. Fling open the glass doors and enjoy the seamless flow to the covered alfresco space of your dreams.

Parents will love the master suite of Hollywood proportions with a luxurious walk-in wardrobe and a resort-style ensuite bathroom with double basins, bath and shower.
An adjacent study nook is perfect to fire off a few emails in ultimate comfort. Or head over to the separate office which has plenty of space for two work stations or for the kids to do their homework. Alternatively, it is large enough to be converted into an additional bedroom.

Meanwhile, the kids are happy in their own wing at the opposite side of the home, in a space they can truly call their own with a large activity room, three bedrooms and a generously sized family bathroom.

“The Hermitage Grande Encore is a home that has a very strong appeal for established families who are looking for their second or even third home,” says McDonald Jones Hunter Sales Manager Daniel King.

“It has a sophisticated, versatile floorplan where every family member will naturally find their own space, while the central living areas easily accommodate the entire family to spend quality time together.

“We see families come into this home and they are blown away by its timeless design and luxe finishes.

“They quickly see that this is a home that is future proof as it will never go out of style. Yet they can tailor it to their specific needs and taste. With so many options for materials, colours and finishes they can truly make it their own.”

Whether it’s time for the family to come together, to host a barbie with friends or to bring out the popcorn and enjoy a movie night in the home theatre, Hermitage Grande Encore offers the perfect setting for gatherings large and small. It’s a home to create memories and share the magic moments of family life.
