We both agreed on the Nolan 45. We liked it. We'll lose the rumpus room, and maybe go for the smaller version - the Nolan 41. Have you seen the Butler's Pantry?!? Wow!!! We'll take that. Double car garage workshop extension? Oh, yes, please. Look at the staircase. That's what we call a staircase. How much is the base price again, I'm sorry? Not bad, but ... it's probably higher than what we're willing to go for. Now we're wondering if there's a house design we missed that really is just the perfect fit for what we want.
Then the salesperson muttered ... "Have you been to our Arena Estate Display Centre?"
Arena where? "In Officer" ...
M has a display home in Officer, called the Whittaker (with 3 other displays, but that didn't matter).
The Whittaker 45 has got, upstairs - a master's bedroom with parents retreat, ensuite and walk-in robes, 3 more bedrooms with built-in robes, shared toilet and bathroom, and leisure room, downstairs we got - a powder room, sitting, dining, family rooms plus study, big kitchen with butler's pantry, good-sized laundry, outdoor room, double car lockup garage and ... NO rumpus room.
Perfect!!! It's what we wanted, right?
