Rural Building Company Display Home
From the striking twin skillion roofline to the distinctive façade that merges the best of traditional and contemporary styles, The Cape Skillion is a standout in any environment. But once you’re inside, it quickly becomes clear that this home stands up to its reputation as the Rural Building Company’s latest iconic home, showcasing sustainable design and stylish Australian living.
Equally at home on a rolling landscape or nestled in a coastal estate, this home gets the heart racing right from the first glance. Whilst others seek to hide a home’s environmental attributes, the Cape Skillion celebrates its “six star” energy efficiency rating by utilising its environmental features to add dramatic character and style to the home. Attractive louvered windows provide natural “venturi effect” cooling, and the living spaces benefit from effective passive solar design.
Sustainable integrated construction methods not only reduce construction time, but are ideal for the heavy clay soil areas often found in regional WA, frequently resulting in lower site costs for the homebuilder.
The expansive, light-filled living spaces framed by a broad, raking ceiling bring an instant sense of cutting-edge style and sophistication, while an abundance of sliding glass effortlessly brings the outside in. The optional fireplace subtly built into the wall adds gentle warmth to the living area, and the stunning kitchen with island bench is a stylish and functional hub of the living space.
Perfect for entertaining, the integrated kitchen, dining and outdoor living area is just one example of how the Cape Skillion is designed for your lifestyle. As with all great homes, the three entertaining areas are distinctly separate from the bedrooms, giving the residents much needed seclusion. Privacy between parents and children is also ensured, with an enormous children’s retreat boasting a large activity and study area, as well as a spacious bathroom and powder room.
This apartment-style retreat is ideal for accommodating teenage children with ample room for all the gadgets they amass. It also provides excellent guest facilities and lends itself as the perfect holiday getaway home. The four bedroom version of the home provides even more accommodation options.
While you’ll appreciate the Cape Skillion’s grand design ideas, it’s also the smaller things that’ll impress, such as the way the showers are designed to keep you dry when turning on the water and the solar control in the alfresco area that makes the best of winter sun. Certainly, the Cape Skillion makes a big impact from the largest to the smallest of details. For a home that surpasses all expectations when it comes to style, substance and sustainability, it must be the Cape Skillion.
