As one of the country’s oldest home building companies, Orbit Homes was established in 1979 on the principle of creating quality homes for Australian families. With 40 years in the industry, the Orbit Homes difference is evident from the outset. The founders (who still run the business to this day) have actual ‘on-the-tools’ experience, having started the business as carpenters. With this background, it means that the Orbit Homes team is led by people who quite literally know how to build a quality home. Applying these same values throughout the entire business, the customer experience is always enhanced.
For those looking at display homes near Brisbane, Orbit Homes is thrilled to display two of its most luxurious homes at North Harbour, both perfect for families looking to indulge in comfortable, yet opulent seaside living.
A stunning contemporary art deco inspired home, the Chevron 32 is ideal for a growing family or a family looking to upgrade to a larger home as their children get older.
In this design, space is key. With a generous open plan living area, it is inevitable this space will become the hub of activity in the home. Perfect for a night in watching a favourite TV show or sitting back with the newspaper of a Saturday morning, the family zone seamlessly connects to the dining area. This space is an entertainer’s dream and can easily play host to a dinner party with family and friends, or a scrumptious weekend brunch.
Sitting adjacent is the kitchen which is sure to inspire any home chef to whip up a restaurant worthy meal. Including details such as a butler’s pantry and ample storage, the kitchen is made up of stunning Caesarstone benchtops, an extended kitchen island bench and high-quality Westinghouse stainless steel appliances.
Adding to the opulent feel, homeowners can expect a glass splashback (ideal for those looking for an easy cleaning option), stainless steel sink and tapware, while overhead cupboards and six pot drawers with a soft close mechanism cap off this entertainer’s kitchen.
Moving through the home, four large bedrooms are complemented by 3.5 bathrooms, creating abundant space for all family members to rest and relax.
In the master suite, his and hers walk in robes add a level of opulence, while a luxury ensuite with freestanding bath help to create the perfect parent’s retreat. Delving into the details of this design, Orbit Homes worked to an urban coastal palette adopting a subtle colour scheme that provides a warm and inviting ambience throughout the space. All the way through modern touches juxtapose classic details such as traditional skirtings, wall mouldings and cornices.
Paying close attention to the materials used, travertine, dark timber and linen feature heavily throughout the home, taking inspiration from organic shapes, colours and textures to exude a calming influence.
Within the display itself, the layering of tactile textures, comfortable and practical furniture, warm whites, and plenty of greenery, provide the perfect inspiration for prospective homeowners.
Provided with the option of several different facades, the North Harbour Chevron 32 display showcases the Coastal facade, which sees ample natural light enter the home’s frontage, epitomising seaside living.

Exuding all the charm and grandeur of a home in the Hamptons, the Sorrento 43 is the ideal design for families who value luxury and style. One of the largest homes available from Orbit Homes, the design includes an array of luxury features across two storeys.
The sizeable open plan living zone houses a generous meal zone which effortlessly connects to the outdoor living area, bring the outdoors in. Ideal for entertaining or family meals, this is a well-considered element of the design and adds extra flair to the space. Neighbouring is a well-appointed kitchen with large walk in pantry, stunning Caesarstone benchtops, quality stainless steel appliances from Westinghouse, as well as glass splashback, overhead cupboards and six pot drawers for extra storage space.
The adjacent family area is bounteous with space to relax and recharge and is flanked by a stylish guest bedroom with ensuite and walk in robe, study and media room. Moving upstairs, an additional sitting area is surrounded by three large bedrooms, with each featuring walk in robes and ensuites providing next level comfort and privacy for every member of the family. However, it is the fifth bedroom, the large master suite, that is the pièce de résistance. With two large walk in robes and huge ensuite, this parents retreat sees a private balcony enhancing the room’s lavish feel.
Setting it apart from competitors, this display home at North Harbour is a true showcase of practicality and functionality combined with luxury. Drawing inspiration from homes in The Hamptons, the Sorrento 43 evokes relaxation and is the perfect private escape from the busy outside world.
