Set on a beautiful wooded lot, the Oasis is a vision of a contemporary, high performance home. Designed to blend in with the natural landscape, the contemporary design hides a wonderfully light, elegant interior.
Come have a look inside our newest home – what you see may just surprise you.
Bespoke, contemporary design
As you walk into the Oasis, the first thing you notice is the sense of space created by the double-height foyer. This continues in the elegant living room where you can gaze out through an expanse of glass to the terrace and woodland beyond. At night, floating bubbles of light hang beside the dramatic full-height white stone wall.
The Oasis is perfect for entertaining. Host a pre-dinner drinks reception for your guests from the cocktail bar, before moving through to the heart of the home; a stunning open-plan area with plenty of space to accommodate a variety of layouts.
Alternatively, why not go alfresco? The living area opens out to a large roofed terrace that provides shelter from sun or rain. Outside stands an impressive fireplace with built in BBQ grill, perfect for summer parties or weekend family barbecues.
At the other end of the house sits one of two master suites. The huge bedroom gives direct access to a private terraced area and a luxuriously appointed bathroom and closet area complete the suite.
The high ceilings continue on the second floor, which boasts the second master suite (also with large walk-in closet and bathroom) complete with its own balcony. A large king suite, that leads out onto the second balcony provides ideal guest accommodation and there are two further bedrooms along with a games room, plus the all-important laundry room and linen closet.
Choosing the right finish is essential to achieve the elegant simplicity that characterizes contemporary design. In the Oasis, we chose Basalt Grey Neolith tiling for the first floor, which offers a dramatic contrast to the feature white stone fireplace and cocktail bar in the dining area.
Custom built UltraLux cabinets blend seamlessly with countertops and stainless steel appliances to give a stylish, yet functional kitchen. The Cambria one-sided waterfall top adds a unique finish to the kitchen island.
Upstairs, the hardwearing, hand-finished red oak floors add richness to the décor.
In the bathrooms, a frameless shower adds a spa-like feel to the room, which is complemented by the double basins and stone tiling.
We believe good design should be functional as well as beautiful. With the Oasis, you get the best of both worlds. We’ve combined ingenious storage solutions (such as a concealed pantry behind the kitchen) with a carefully considered layout (the powder room is accessible from both the inside bar area and the living room terrace) to create a home that’s both fun and practical to live in.
Outside the house, a sweeping driveway leads to a large detached garage with plenty of internal storage and a separate bike storage facility. The Nichiha Vintage Wood exterior gives the look of traditional wood with enhanced durability, to keep it looking good for longer.
Smart home technologies are built into all aspects of the Oasis. The hard-wired network cabling allows you to have a secure, high-speed network with the capacity for media streaming, online gaming and much more.
The Nest Thermostat learns from your behavior and programs itself to heat your home to your preferred temperature at different times of day or night. It even knows when you’re away and can get the house cozy and warm for when you return.
Safety and security are embedded but largely invisible. Look after your family with the Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm which works together with the Nest Dropcam to record video clips of any safety event and notify you immediately.
Keep an eye on your home and family wherever you are with the Dropcam Wi-Fi video monitoring system. Or just set it to watch over your home while you’re away. And with our smart locking system and phone operated garage doors, you’ll be able to secure your home without ever having to worry about losing your keys.
Unrivaled home performance
What looks stunning on the surface is just as special underneath. The Oasis incorporates our weathertight insulation package with a level of thermal performance that far exceeds building codes. Combined with high-efficiency HVAC and ERV systems, we’ve created a home that will keep you warm in winter, cool in summer and keep your energy bills low.
We’ve sought independent accreditation of our homes from LEED: the leading rating system for environmental building design in the U.S. The Oasis is designed to achieve a minimum of LEED Silver Certification with the potential to attain Platinum Certification – the highest level of environmental performance.
To further reduce your energy costs, we include a 2kW solar photovoltaic array as standard, with an option to increase this to achieve net zero energy construction.
