CITY SKY­LINE IN THE RECIPE

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

Com­ple­ment­ing the sleep­ing quarters are the two liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ing spa­ces, the first of which is the open-plan main fam­ily area.

Take in the views of the Perth sky­line from here while cook­ing in the coun­try-style cor­ner kitchen with gas cook­ing, am­ple stor­age and tiled floors.

Step­ping down to the games room, which is an ex­ten­sion of the orig­i­nal dwelling, bi-fold doors slide away to seam­lessly in­te­grate the out­doors with the fam­ily liv­ing space.

“I start the day here ev­ery morn­ing with a cof­fee look­ing out to the jacaran­das,” Sue said.

“It was a big fac­tor for us when we bought the place; we walked down to the room and just thought it was fan­tas­tic.”

The cot­tage gar­den, with bore retic­u­la­tion, prac­ti­cally takes care of it­self.

And along with the un­der­cover spa and lawn space, the back yard is won­der­ful for al- fresco en­ter­tain­ing.

“It’s been great at Christ­mas and the sum­mer hol­i­days or when we have friends or the girls around,” Sue said.

In ad­di­tion, the prop­erty is also close to the fore­shore and good schools, as well as cafes, restau­rants and en­ter­tain­ment.

“It is a su­per-quiet street with only lo­cal traf­fic. The fore­shore is vir­tu­ally in our back yard and I can walk down once I do the school drop-off,” Sue said.
