When you step inside your home, it should feel like a sanctuary and put you at ease. And this is exactly what you can expect at the Monaco 28 by Henley.
Henley national design manager Jeff Bugeja said the light-filled home combined crisp whites with soft timber tones for a soothing look that was also refreshing and uplifting.
“It gives you that feeling that you live on the coast and the beach is just outside,” Mr Bugeja said.

Mr Bugeja described the single-storey home as a “versatile design” pitched at first-home buyers.
“It’s ideal for a family or a couple looking to start a family in the near future,” he said.
Three separate living spaces, including a lounge, kids’ retreat and open-plan family/dining area, make the Monaco extra appealing for families.
“The aim was to create a space where everyone can interact seamlessly but also retreat to their own space when they are looking for downtime to relax and unwind,” Mr Bugeja said.
“It’s a practical and liveable design with many areas of ‘wow’ all the way through the home.”
The kitchen is positioned at the head of the open-plan living hub so it overlooks the dining and family areas and has views of the alfresco area.
“It creates a perfect space to host when entertaining at home, where all the areas flow seamlessly into each other,” Mr Bugeja said.

The kitchen has plenty of character, featuring overhead white cabinetry with a grey-beige oak trim and open shelving to store cookbooks and other essentials.
“The exposed glass rangehood also breaks up the space, giving it a classier feel,” Mr Bugeja said.
A butler’s pantry off to the side extends the work space and adds to the entertainer appeal of the home.
The covered alfresco area at the rear shifts living and entertaining outside through sliding stacker doors off the family room. “It’s a happy, fresh space to chill out in,” Mr Bugeja said.

The main bedroom has a super-sized walk-in wardrobe/dressing room and ensuite and is privately positioned at the front of the home, while the three remaining bedrooms are grouped around a central bathroom and leisure space towards the back.
“The kids’ wing is like a mini home within the entire home that has everything you need to function, plus easy access to the kitchen/living/dining area,” Mr Bugeja said.
The Monaco has 13 facade options, with the Crescent facade featured at Rockbank.
