Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

EV­ERY so of­ten, a res­i­dence comes along ooz­ing with character, style and – if walls could talk – tons of fam­ily mem­o­ries.

This Beau­monde Homes de­sign is one gor­geous ex­am­ple, with Fed­er­a­tion bun­ga­low-style or­nate ceil­ings, tim­ber fret­work, a fire­place and a quaint bay win­dow cap­tur­ing the essence of a by­gone era.

But fur­ther inside past the white picket fence, there is a con­tem­po­rary lay­out and a mod­ern cen­tral fam­ily/kitchen/din­ing space that will cap­ture the heart of many a home buyer.

Avid en­ter­tain­ers get to choose be­tween for­mal lounge and din­ing rooms, the sunken open-plan main liv­ing area as well as an al­fresco space com­plete with be­low-ground pool.

The kitchen is well equipped and fea­tures stone bench­tops, tim­ber cabi­netry, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and views to the out­door en­ter­tain­ment area.

The master bed­room, with ceil­ing fan, built-in robes, spa en­suite and sep­a­rate pow­der room, has an ad­ja­cent room that is great as a home of­fice, nurs­ery or hobby room.

This en­tire wing is re­moved from the other bed­rooms, cre­at­ing a won­der­fully peace­ful par­ents’ re­treat.

Out­side, the al­fresco area with ceil­ing fan and a gabled roof is along­side a large lawned area sur­rounded by es­tab­lished gar­dens.

The pool takes cen­tre stage with its glass balustrade, non-slip paved floors and wa­ter fea­ture.

Close to Preston Street shop­ping, Cygnet The­atre, cafés, and the South Perth fore­shore, there is plenty to fall in love with here.
