Two airy Richmond showhomes side by side – these G.J. Gardner homes offer the very best in relaxed family living and you can visit them at the same time

'Double the pleasure' – whoever coined that phrase could well have been talking about these stunning G.J. Gardner showhomes sitting side by side on the same well-to-do Richmond street. Not only do these handsome homes look the part together, their proximity makes it a lot easier to view both!

86: Opulence in Richmond – three bedrooms

This showhome with a stylish grey tile roof features a natural white Rockote plaster exterior finish matched with contrasting vertical cedar seen at the gabled end of the modest-sized, solid family home.

The family areas and bedrooms are separated in the intelligently laid out home with the formal lounge and two car garage at the centre of the home.

The living/dining/kitchen volume has a lovely meandering feel. The view from the dining table looks through to the living area with its absolutely beautiful wall mural of jungle fronds – it's hard to imagine a more beautiful aspect to have in your own home.

The kitchen is pared back and contemporary, with a solid timber benchtop cantilevered to create a handy breakfast bar, complete with designer stools. A walk-in scullery is off to one side.

The sheltered deck steps into the large entertainer's zone and with walls of windows and sliders opening onto this sheltered space the entire area is awash with natural light – a great feeling in summer and an absolute godsend on a rainy winter's day.

The dining area, living area and private master bedroom all open onto this charming, protected al fresco space.

88: Charming Meadows – four bedrooms

Clad in Rockcote in Dulux Opononi and Whitewashed Vertical Cedar, this refined G.J. Gardner showhome is protected by a strong Five Rib Longrun Roofing in Sandstone Grey.

The home has a sprawling family zone with kitchen dining and family all flowing together.

The designer kitchen is a focus within this space, featuring modern cabinetry profiles, a pale marble look finish, designer pendants and all backed up by a large walk-in scullery. This is an elegant workspace where even the ventilation disappears into the pale, veined marble finish – in reality a hard-wearing, low-upkeep porcelain slab tile.

Two walls of the wider entertainers/family zone are virtually all windows, making for a light-filled, airy feel. Sliders draw back to connect the large room with the sheltered, expansive timber deck that runs along side.

The kitchen area boasts natural wood flooring while the dining and family room areas of the space are warmly carpeted.

There is also a completely separate media room – an ideal arrangement for family living.

At the rear corner of the home, the master suite boasts a large walk-in robe, luxurious ensuite (with a stunning shower stall wall finish) and a sense of privacy.

As well as a master suite and family bathroom there is a separate powder room and also a dedicated laundry room.

So, to quote the famous poet Lord Byron – "happiness was born a twin" – check out these neighbouring Nelson showhomes at your leisure.
