Sorrento Grand 43: Redefining Modern Family Living

by Carlisle Homes

Step inside our outstanding new display home at Redstone Estate in  Melbourne’s Northwest.

Our award-winning designers have done it again – meet Sorrento Grand 43, an exceptional new display home at Redstone Estate in Melbourne’s Northwest. This four bedroom, 2.5-bathroom double-storey home offers the ultimate in fresh luxury and lifestyle – think high ceilings, beautiful finishes, flexible living spaces and all the mod cons a busy, growing family could ever ask for.

Ricky D’Alesio and Jessica Hodges, the designers who created the stunning abode, reveal why Sorrento Grand 43 is the finest family home you’ll find anywhere in Melbourne.

Q: What makes Sorrento Grand 43 at Sunbury so special?

D’Alesio A: So much thought has gone into making Sorrento Grand 43 both luxurious and incredibly user-friendly – a practical and beautiful abode that families will love coming home to and be proud to welcome friends and family inside.

The interior oozes luxury, with generous ceiling heights, a beautiful entry area with feature wall cladding, hotel-like bathrooms and exquisite materiality throughout.

With a stunning kitchen at the heart of the floor plan (complete with a spacious butler’s pantry), versatile living spaces, oversized bedrooms and entertaining areas both inside and out, this is a family home that ticks every box – and then some!

Sorrento Grand is a luxurious and user-friendly abode your family will love coming home to. Featured here: Sorrento Grand, Redstone Estate, Sunbury.

Q: What are some features families will love?

D’Alesio A: When it comes to how families want to live today, every detail has been considered. The interior is spacious and filled with lashings of natural light, with open-plan living at its heart, and multiple spaces that can be used for different purposes, whether it’s studying, working from home or relaxing with friends and family.

A luxurious entertainer’s kitchen with a huge island bench at the centre, two meals areas – one inside and one outside – and a family-friendly lounge provide plenty of space for the family to come together and create those special memories. Plus, there are places to retreat and relax, including three oversized kids’ bedrooms (each with a built-in ‘robe and room for a desk or to accommodate a sleepover), a separate kids’ lounge and a built-in study zone.

Mum and Dad are catered for too, with a vast parent’s retreat on the upper level, complete with two walk-in ‘robes and a super-sized spa ensuite.

We know that more homeowners are working from home, so a well-proportioned study with practical joinery is located near the entry – a quiet spot where you won’t be disturbed while you’re concentrating or on a call.

Q: Sorrento Grand 43’s luxurious details to look out for?

Hodges A: This home is packed with them!

The open-plan living area is spectacular; it’s spacious and features generous windows and exterior doors that draw the outside in and fill the space with natural light. A feature staircase in blonde timber with an oversized landing guides you to the upper level of the house. 

The master suite evokes the feel of a luxury hotel, with an oversized, upholstered bedhead and a sensational ensuite with a huge spa bath and double, walk-in shower complete with an overhead rain shower.

And the detailing throughout is exquisite; the ground floor is lined with stunning large-format porcelain tiles that mimic natural stone, the kitchen, bathroom and butler’s pantry feature Caesarstone benchtops, and there are touches of marble throughout.

One of my favourite features is the outdoor gas fireplace in the alfresco area – perfect for creating that cosy vibe when you’re entertaining outdoors.

 

With its open-plan and multi-use spaces, the Sorrento Grand 43 is both functional and supremely elegant. Featured here: Sorrento Grand, Redstone Estate, Sunbury.

Q: Tell us about the ‘Glacier’ interior style

Hodges A: The Glacier look centres around cool whites, icy mint tones, and accents of brushed gold in hardware and lighting for a glam edge.

Touches of warm oak in built-in joinery and the staircase bring warmth to the scheme, while clever additions such as mosaic tiles in tones of green in the kitchen and powder room, ribbed furniture detailing and pops of marble add character and interest.

‘Skinny Shaker-style’ joinery (Laminex form-wrapped cabinetry in Ghostgum in a Settler profile) strikes the perfect balance between classic and contemporary in the kitchen, pantry and open-plan living area.

The Glacier decorating style is understated and supremely elegant – and it’s super easy to decorate around.

Q: What is the exterior like?

D’Alesio A: This home features our captivating Malibu façade, which layers different finishes, such as render, brickwork, composite timber and porcelain tiles, for a look that’s both elegant and dynamic. The façade’s gentle colours and earthy textures tie in beautifully with the interior colours and finishes, creating a seamless sense of flow.
