A first look at our new Macarthur homes

Geelong Homes’ newest design is the Macarthur, a home that strikes the perfect balance between functional design and spacious living.

New estates in areas such as Ballarat, Colac, Winchelsea and Teesdale have begun releasing large blocks, often with wide frontages. To meet this new trend, the Geelong Homes design team have come together to create a great family home that maximises every space without compromising on comfort.

The result is the Macarthur—a spacious four-bedroom, two-bathroom home that makes every day living effortless.

Geelong Homes general manager Andrew Carroll says in addition to suiting blocks with a wide frontage, the Macarthur also suits rural blocks and acreages.

“This home is also a great option if you are considering a knockdown rebuild,” Andrew says.

“The Macarthur comes in two sizes —the Macarthur 231 and the Macarthur 247 to appeal to different lifestyles and needs. They are both great family homes that suit growing families, whether you’re on a country block or in an urban setting.”

Let’s take a look.

Macarthur 231

The Macarthur 231 may be the smaller of the two homes, but that doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on its great, functional design.

This design offers the privacy of a secluded master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe at the front of the home. Straight across the hall is the study or home office space. This creates a parent zone that can be closed off by a door from the rest of the home—creating the perfect solution for those who work from home and need a quiet space away from the rest of the family.

At the heart of the home is the open planned living area. The kitchen has an island bench with an L-shaped design that leads to a walk-in pantry. The brilliant thing about this pantry is it also has access into the garage—allowing you to unload groceries from your car with ease.

A second wing situated off the living space adds three more bedrooms to the floorplan, plus the central bathroom, powder room and laundry. This separate wing allows all family members to have their own space.

And for those who enjoy entertaining, there’s an option to add an alfresco area, adding an extra space to host family and friends.

Macarthur 247

If you loved the functionality of the Macarthur 231, but wanted even more space, then the Macarthur 247 is your answer.

This again, has a private, secluded “parent zone” at the front of the home consisting of the study, master bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite. But in addition to this, it has a lounge room to complete this special haven.

Again this area can be shut away from the rest of the home by doors that lead to the open plan living area. The open plan living area stars a well-appointed kitchen with plenty of bench and storage space, including the walk-in pantry with access to the garage. The second wing of the home features three further bedrooms, a central bathroom, powder room and laundry. And to complete the home, there is the option to include an alfresco area—where you can create your dream outdoor entertaining area!
