Retreat Designs: Homes Tailored for Relaxation

by Carlisle Homes

Craving a little ‘me time’? Choose a home design that includes your very own secluded parent’s retreat. 

Spending time together as a family is one of life’s greatest joys, but that’s not to say you don’t enjoy those little moments of the day or evening that you can carve out for yourself to rest and recharge. Our Retreat floor plans are specially designed with the master suite to the rear to give you a luxurious and peaceful space away from street or family noise where you can take time out, and put your feet up and enjoy a little ‘me time’. After all, you’ve earnt it!

If privacy is what you're after, our Retreat Floorplan will give you the luxury to enjoy time away from the rest of your home for a hotel-like experience. Featured here: Sorrento Grand Retreat, Mt Atkinson Estate, Truganina.

Available in our Affinity and T-Range double-storey collections, Retreat floor plans feature an expansive and secluded master suite cleverly located at the rear of the house where you can enjoy absolute privacy. These beautifully designed spaces come complete with a stunning ensuite that exudes luxury-hotel vibes, a huge walk-in robe with space to try on different outfits for the day, plus your own private balcony where you can sit outside in the sunshine and enjoy a quiet morning coffee by yourself or with your partner. And the bedroom is more than big enough to accommodate a sofa or armchairs and a side table, creating a delightful spot to cosy up with a book on those quiet afternoons.  

The Retreat floorplan gives you the flexibility to customise your space, so you can add a study in place of a rear balcony for convenience. Featured here: Sorrento Grand Retreat, Mt Atkinson Estate, Truganina.

Like all Carlisle designs, Retreat floorplans come with customisable options so if a rear balcony is not your thing an additional study, library or relaxing zone is possible. Just head to our website to explore the options.

But that’s not the only benefit of choosing a home with one of our Retreat floor plans; with these layouts, the activity zone, which is often used as an extra living space where the kids can watch television or hang out with their friends, is positioned at the front of the house. Not only does this create a buffer of space between the master suite and the kids’ area so everyone can enjoy a little independence, but it means that if your block faces north you can maximise natural light in your upstairs living area and boost passive solar heating in your home to cut down your energy costs. A win from every angle!  

The Retreat floorplan will maximise natural light and make your home feel more spacious and inviting, while also giving parents the privacy they require! Featured here: Sorrento Grand Retreat, Mt Atkinson Estate, Truganina.

You can find our Retreat floor plans by using the extra filter section on our home finder filter and selecting More Filters.
