SO you’ve decided to buy a new home or you’re thinking about building.

Congratulations! You’re one step closer to living in your own place, that’s perfectly designed to suit your needs and wants.

You might want a private theatre room, an activity or games area, a giant central alfresco or a kitchen scullery with a walk-in pantry.

It’s up to you!

One of the best parts of being a homeowner is being able to personalise your home’s design and decorate the interior to suit your taste and style.

You can also show off your impressive new abode to family and friends by having them round for BBQs, dinner parties, summer soirees and movie nights.

If you love to entertain SMART Homes for Living can help you find your perfect match.

These are the top 5 SMART Homes for Entertaining:


The Colossus

One of our most popular designs, the Colossus doesn’t get its mammoth name for nothing.

Ideal for 15m frontages, this four bedroom, two bathroom home is great for entertaining.

The Colosuss’ meals, family, kitchen and alfresco area connect together in the centre of the home.

There’s also a convenient servery window in the kitchen that lets you pass food and drinks to your guests outside.

A big scullery, located next to the stone benchtop kitchen, connects to a hidden laundry and walk-in linen cupboard.

The Colossus’ huge 270 square metre footprint is one of the most affordable houses on the market.

Its design can be fully-customised using our iDesign tool.

Prices start from $189,990 in the metro area.



The Splendour display home, in Jindalee, is one our favourite homes for entertaining!


The Goliath

The four bedroom, two bathroom Goliath is a great example of rear living at its best!

This new trend involves having your kitchen, meals and living area at the back of the house.

That way you can make better use of your entertaining space and seamlessly transition from indoor-to-outdoor living by opening up the glass sliding doors.

You’ve also got a great view of your backyard and you can let natural lighting straight into your entertaining zone.

It’s an unconventional way of living, but our customers are loving it!

Starting from $187,990, the Goliath is suited for a 15m frontage and 255 square metre footprint.

Its design can be fully-customised using our iDesign tool.


The Splendour

Our new display home, the Splendour, is another four bedroom, two bathroom design with a huge, open layout.

A master suite is located at the front of the house, while the entire living area, and theatre room, is located at the back.

If you don’t want a private home cinema you can always turn it into a games room, where your guests can play pool or table tennis!

The kitchen and meals areas conveniently open up to a modern alfresco.

It’s one of our best Western Australian display homes, which you can visit today – 27 Pallium Way, Jindalee.

The Splendour home is open on Monday and Wednesday from 2 to 5pm, Saturday and public holidays from 1 to 5pm and on Sundays from 12 to 5pm.

Starting from $224,990 the Splendour is suited for a standard 12.5m frontage and a 248 square metre block.



The Splendour display home has a stylish alfresco area that’s perfect for parties and BBQs.


The Benoa

Our customers are loving our new Indah Courtyard Collection!

Many Western Australian premium builders are introducing central courtyards to their home designs and Smart Homes for Living has embraced this concept.

The Benoa is a huge four bedroom, two bathroom home that’s ideal for parties and family gatherings!

Suited for a 15m frontage, the home features a theatre room, games room, and spacious living and dining area that opens up to your very own alfresco courtyard.

While you might not have your own personal chef, you’ll feel like one in the fully-equipped kitchen with adjacent scullery and walk-in pantry.

Starting from $199,990 the Benoa’s total area size is 258 square metres.



The 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom Benoa has a games room, meals and living area, and master suite that all seamlessly connect to the alfresco.


The Padma

The Padma has the biggest courtyard area out of the entire Indah range, making it one of the best indoor-outdoor entertaining spaces.

The four bedroom, two bathroom home contains a spacious kitchen and meals area, with large sliding doors that open up to an alfresco dining space.

There’s a dedicated theatre room at the front of the house and bedrooms at the rear.

The kitchen features a huge walk-in pantry and scullery, and is about two steps from your alfresco.

Starting from $198,990 the Padma’s total area size is 243 square metres.


SMART Homes for Living has more than 45 designs, including the fully-customisable iDesign plans and the new Indah Courtyard Collection.
