Everybody gets pampered at Orbit Homes’ Sorrento 398, where all five bedrooms have an ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe.

In fact, parents get extra pampering, with a main bedroom that has not one, but two, walk-in wardrobes.

Orbit Homes marketing manager Monique Millson said the home’s design appealed to a mix of homebuyers, especially those with older children or grandparents living at home.

“Each person can have a space for grooming and relaxing without having to share the bathroom with the extended household,” Ms Millson explained.

All the bedrooms score an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.

Ms Millson said having walk-in wardrobes in all of the bedrooms was considered a luxury touch by homebuyers.

“As a premium builder, this is how we like our customers to feel – that they’re experiencing premium family living.”

The home’s multiple walk-in wardrobes contribute to the premium feel.

Racks, drawers and shelving keep everything tidy.

One of the bedrooms – the guest suite – is downstairs, while the other four bedrooms are upstairs. The upstairs bedrooms are grouped around a central leisure space the kids will enjoy making their own.

This leisure space nicely separates the secondary bedrooms from the main bedroom.

The privacy of the main bedroom is strengthened by having the sleeping area neatly concealed from view when you first enter the room.

In the ensuite, a freestanding bath, floor-to-ceiling tiling, dual vanity and double shower that spans the width of the room set a luxurious tone.

A freestanding bath and double shower are luxury features.

Ms Millson said the Sorrento had been designed around what families wanted more of today; in particular, space to grow and entertain.

The home has a theatre room downstairs, along with an open-plan kitchen/family/meals section at the rear, where a sliding glass door leads to a covered outdoor entertaining space that feels like another room.

“With the zoned areas, we have created somewhere families will enjoy living in for many years,” Ms Millson said.

Outside chance: the alfresco area.

A large picture window near the meals area brings in plenty of natural light and provides a pretty garden backdrop when sharing meals together. As displayed, this dining space also features a built-in buffet.

Ms Millson said the home’s elegant Hamptons look made it a very relaxed and stylish place to live.

“The details are second to none, from coffered ceilings and dado panelling to high detailed skirting, high panelled doors and even hand-picked decorative cabinetry handles,” she said.

The home channels an elegant Hamptons feel.

Nowhere is the Hamptons look better celebrated than in the kitchen.

This space features lots of storage, including glass-fronted overhead cupboards. It also has a window splashback near the cooking area, an island bench with a stone top and breakfast bar, and a walk-in pantry.

A window splashback and plentiful storage are hallmarks of the kitchen.

The Hamptons facade displayed at Tarneit is one of 13 exterior looks available for this home.

Large columns, feature posts, a balcony, weatherboard panelling and decorative stonework are part of its signature style.
