Empty nesters can struggle to find low-maintenance abodes after living in their family home for decades. An apartment is one option, so is a townhouse.
Kaye and Glynn talks about their house, the North Fitzroy House, as ‘another option’ that goes against the usual trend of housing, in an article written by Stephen Crafti
“…Other plan differences included a separate bathroom rather than adjacent ensuite for the main bedroom to allow visitors or guests staying over to have access to the upstairs bathroom. “Our (adult) children often stay over and we felt it was important to go against the usual trend for ensuites,” says Kaye. Apart from the clever planning, the couple delight in the way light enters their home, via dormer-style windows on the first floor and through highly manipulated apertures from the north that seem to almost pull the northern light into the stairwell and onto the landing of the first floor. “The light is quite special. We’ve got this wonderful light throughout the day, accentuated by Andrew’s (Ferguson) leadlight panels. The place is continually animated,” she adds.”
