LUXURY LIVING OVER TWO LEVELS
GRAND proportions and precision design on show from the street make way for striking interiors in this 300sq m residence.
Across two storeys on the 431sq m block, the seemingly modest yellowbrick elevation hides a quality design complemented by a well-thought-out floorplan.
Owners Fay and Tony have lived in the home for the past 12 years and said the home had been ideal in bringing in extra income for them.
“Because of the separate areas upstairs and downstairs, the upstairs is fully self-sufficient except for a kitchen,” Fay said.
“We have been able to rent the rooms out to students who get to have their own lounge and then they join us for dinner downstairs.
“There’s potential to rent the upstairs to fly-in, fly-out workers because it’s close to the airport and public transport or else it’s an ideal family home, who have teenagers who are still living at home.”
Through the double-door entry, the rich hues of the solid karri floors are immediately inviting and set off the tall, light-filled spaces wonderfully.
Here, feature downlights and a oneof-a-kind barrel-vaulted ceiling add in- terest to the space
The vast open-plan main living room takes pride of place on the ground floor, with lush gardens coolly beckoning.
Fay said her favourite place in the house was the lounge room with the gas fireplace.
“It’s got arched windows that look out to the garden and it’s just very comfortable,” she said.
Tucked away in the corner and looking out to the alfresco area, the kitchen has a top vantage point of all the living and entertaining spaces on this level.
A low wall oven, microwave recess, gas cooking and stone benchtops keep this work place functional.
Two sets of large glass doors slide away to open the house in to the outdoors, which has been landscaped to create a stunning outcome.
From the spacious decked alfresco dining space with a plumbed gas barbecue, a huge fishpond with water feature sets a tranquil ambience.
