New Display Homes: Shaynna Blaze Inspired ‘Modernist’ Cayman 287 Opens in Newcastle
Modern, practical living at its finest in New Lambton
New display homes spark inspiration and transport you to your forever home. As the very first Montgomery Homes knock down rebuild display home, the narrow-block design Cayman 287 features a show-stopping and ultra-modern Manhattan facade, stunning inclusions such as contemporary square-set ceilings and Velux skylights, and modern appliances. Built in situ, this display home is located in New Lambton, and gives you a feel for what living in a Montgomery Home will be like.
Designed and styled by Montgomery Homes brand and design ambassador, Shaynna Blaze — this display home has been exclusively themed with crisp lines, a simple colour palette and featured textures which have been hand-picked to envelop her ‘Modernist’ theme.
The features, the floorplan and the fancy inclusions
Modern facade features to embellish your home
The facade theme and materials can dramatically impact the overall look and feel of your new home. Allowing continuation of the Modernist theme, both the colour palette and architectural approach to the Cayman 287 facade uniquely awards the home ample street appeal.
A modern construction technique, Hebel, has been applied in crisp white — contrasting successfully with the Colorbond Night Sky nail strip cladding above it. This striking distinction envelops the essence of the Modernist theme.
A feature in its own right, an architectural skillion roof to the rear alfresco provides character and class. The raked ceiling is a striking inclusion with the Manhattan facade, and is further accentuated with a cladding finish.
A floorplan that balances beauty with practicality
The Cayman 287 is ideal for the modern family, with living areas spread across a spacious double storey floorplan. An open-plan kitchen, family and meals area seamlessly unfold to an oversized covered outdoor deck — perfect for entertaining. Morning sunshine spills into this living area, with a study, home theatre, modern powder room and well-appointed laundry completing the lower floor.
Spaciousness and comfort continue to feature on the upper level of the Cayman 287, with light-filled zones including four spacious bedrooms and a rumpus room. A feature of the Manhattan facade, a raked ceiling is accentuated by angled sky lights and corner windows — a feature that comes to life as you ascend the single flight of stairs to the upper level.
Truly an oasis to escape to, the master suite is tucked behind the rumpus room. Redefining luxury living, Modernist features including intricate rattan pendant lighting and a highlight window above the bed are further highlighted by the raked ceiling. Dual, over-sized walk-in-robes lead to a luxurious ensuite — two separate vanities creating a separate space for each homeowner. Seamlessly unfolding to a covered outdoor deck completes the master suite in the Cayman 287. The remaining three bedrooms also feature on the upper level, each with a walk-in-robe and convenient access to the main bathroom.
Fancy inclusions to enhance your lifestyle
At Montgomery Homes, we understand that your new home should reflect your style and design tastes. Adding personal flair through feature items is one way to inject your individual personality to your new home. The Cayman 287 perfectly encapsulates how feature tiling can be used — statement popsicle tiling to the walk-in pantry, powder room and laundry adds an edgy vibe to these rooms.
The kitchen truly is the heart of the home, and by seamlessly connecting with the meals, family and alfresco areas you can entertain in a space that is both sizeable and user-friendly. An angled waterfall stone feature to the island bench is the focal point of this area, and complements the sleek and modern kitchen design.
Integrated appliances in the kitchen not only create an effortless cooking experience, but they provide an overall sharper appeal to the appearance of the 2-pack kitchen cabinetry.
Unpacking the 'Modernist' theme
Taking elements of Art Deco, midcentury, and 70’s architecture, Shaynna Blaze adds a 21st century influence to create a softer and calmer version of a very popular design style. With this style, Shaynna has held onto the basic principles of Modernist design and introduced materials like travertine and timber to bring a softness and rawness that calms the space without taking away from the traditional aesthetic.
Design is all about evolving and adapting ideas to suit individuality. Contrasting elements throughout this home create a cool, considered mood such as accent colours, bold black window frames alongside fresh white walls, with sleek features truly making it feel like a home.
