On display: SHAWOOD Type C

A major factor sets SHAWOOD homes apart — a commitment to sustainable living.

The structural timber beams used throughout the construction of all SHAWOOD homes are sourced from sustainable forests in northern Europe. But even more important are the elements you don’t see.

The clever design of the two-storey Type C display home incorporates energy-efficient principles such as the northern orientation of glazed areas to help trap winter sun and reduce your dependence on heating. Also, the smart placement of windows and louvres, plus high ceilings and a commitment to open-plan living areas, encourages cross ventilation to create a naturally light and airy home.
The family hub of the home is at the rear of the ground floor where an open area features the kitchen, dining and living areas. A second lounge area is off the main entry and yet another family room has been placed upstairs, offering plenty of privacy.

The master suite dominates the second storey with an ensuite and walk-in robe. Three secondary bedrooms have been placed at the other end of this floor, separated by a family room for added privacy, again making this design perfect for modern family living.

This two-storey architect-designed SHAWOOD home has been planned to suit the needs of the modern family. Living areas are defined by integrated open plan interiors and flooded with natural light. Cleverly designed to maximise use of space, the light-filled entry creates a sense of expanse. A second upstairs living area and study means there is room for the family to spend time together and apart.
