New Homes under $200,000

This distinct contemporary home is full of rare and unusual design features which make it a stylish house to live in. Design features include an exposed concrete block wall between the hall and the living room and a stunning water feature at the end of the hall, which can be seen from the entry hall. 

The minimalist style is reinforced by the use of a fl at roof, exposed concrete block and corrugated iron exterior. The spacious living room includes a fabulous gas fire, and has three large ranch slider doors that open out onto the landscaped patio area. 

The modern kitchen has an island bench and is situated within the living area with views out to the patio. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite with modern high quality fixtures and fittings. 

The remaining two bedrooms have rebated wardrobes, with unique shaped windows that add to the minimalist characteristics of the house. This home also uses the site to the maximum.
