Cabernet MK 1
The overwhelming demand for timber-framed construction on blocks in the metro area saw the evolution of the Cabernet MK 1 – an inner-city residence by Cedar Homes that can fit onto an 18m frontage.
The floorplan of the design sees the living upstairs, including meals, kitchen, master bedroom, walk-in robe and ensuite, allowing common areas to take full advantage of surrounding views of the coastline or countryside.
The use of weatherboards on the first floor adds to the country appeal, while oversized balconies allow a fluid transition from inside to outside.
The warm, relaxed design is currently being used as Cedar Homes’ only display home at Whiteman Edge in Brabham, surrounded by existing greenery and vegetation that adds to the relaxed aesthetic of the home.
As a timber-framed home, its external and internal walls can be fully insulated with
a CSR R2.5 Batt. Accompany this with an R3 and 50mm Anticon insulation in the roof, and this home achieves a very high thermal rating.
The new design also incorporates a double lock-up garage to suit urban settings, as well as the addition of optional rendered brickwork on the ground level to fit different block locations.
The country-meets-city home boasts a number of modern finishes, such as Technika kitchen appliances, stone benchtops, a beautiful vaulted ceiling to the living area, floor-to-ceiling tiling in the ensuite, and even a corner spa.
