Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

TUCKED away in a pri­vate spot at the rear of the block is this stylish res­i­dence that will ap­peal to savvy home buy­ers.

There is much on of­fer with this three-bed­room house, which is fresh from a ren­o­va­tion and fea­tures a func­tional lay­out that will ap­peal to those who love to en­ter­tain at home.

Own­ers Wei and Choo bought the prop­erty ear­lier this year as their first in­vest­ment project.

“This is the first house we have ren­o­vated and we def­i­nitely have plans to do more,” Wei said.

Wei said the older 1979 dwelling was given more than a facelift.

“We tore down two walls in the main liv­ing room to open it all up and we also mod­i­fied the lay­out to make it more prac­ti­cal,” he said.

Down the drive­way and past the dou­ble car­port at the front, a short flight of stairs leads up to the paved porch with glass balustrade.

Through the en­try is the open-plan fam­ily area with the qual­ity fin­ishes on of­fer through­out the house.

Bam­boo floor­ing, a chic colour scheme and tim­ber­framed bi-fold doors cre­ate a cosy am­bi­ence in this area.

Light pours in from the back gar­den and al­fresco area through the doors into the lounge, draw­ing at­ten­tion to the roomy spa­ces.

Round the cor­ner from this are the din­ing room and kitchen, where the large free­stand­ing stove, stain­less-steel range­hood, glass splash­backs and qual­ity cabi­netry make this a won­der­ful place to cook and con­gre­gate.

Along the perime­ter of the floor­plan are the three bed­rooms, the largest of which has di­rect ac­cess to the gar­dens and a walk-in robe.

A sec­ond bed­room has built-in robes and an en­suite bath­room, while the third is next to the main bath­room with free­stand­ing bath and sep­a­rate shower.

Out­side, the beau­ti­fully main­tained raised lawn and gar­dens cre­ate a calm­ing re­treat and gor­geous back­drop for en­ter­tain­ing on the paved pa­tio.

Other fea­tures in­clude a cen­tral the­atre or home of­fice, built-in shelv­ing and li­nen stor­age, as well as a laun­dry.

The home also has ducted air­con­di­tion­ing and is in walk­ing dis­tance to bus routes, Col­lier Park golf course and Col­lier Pri­mary School.

“It’s also close to Pen­rhos Col­lege, not too far to the city and is in a cen­tral area close to Curtin Univer­sity and Vic­to­ria Park,” Wei said.
