A TOUCH OF CLASS IN MAN­NING

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

JACARAN­DAS lit­ter the street with gor­geous pur­ple blos­soms as they lead the way to this charm­ing res­i­dence.

The el­e­gant home’s beau­ti­ful fa­cade is punc­tu­ated by es­tab­lished cot­tage gar­dens, which cam­ou­flage its thor­oughly mod­ern de­sign.

De­spite its clas­sic looks, the home was in fact crafted by lux­ury builder Webb & BrownNeaves in 2000 on a prime 685sq m block nes­tled in the pop­u­lar McDougall precinct.

Own­ers Mark and Mary have since im­proved the home.

“In 2009, we did a ma­jor reno in the gar­den and got Fu­ture Pools to put in the swim­ming pool,” he said.

“We also added at­tic stor­age with an ex­tend­able lad­der.”

Just a year later, the home was awarded the 2010 Swim­ming Pool & Spa As­so­ci­a­tion WA gold award in the Con­crete Pools – Tra­di­tional & Geo­met­ric un­der $50,000 cat­e­gory.

“It’s a re­ally good, func­tional home lay­out with mul­ti­ple liv­ing ar­eas,” Mark added.

“It’s just a great house for en­ter­tain­ing both in­side and out. And the kids just love the pool.”

Past the en­try, the tra- di­tional floor­plan starts with a for­mal lounge with fire­place and a for­mal din­ing room with black­butt tim­ber floors.

Also at the front of the home is the master bed­room, fea­tur­ing a walk-in robe and en­suite with bath, shower, dou­ble van­ity units and a sep­a­rate toi­let.

Mov­ing fur­ther in­side and past dou­ble french doors, the main hall­way leads to the study, three sec­ondary be­d­rooms with built-in robes, the fam­ily bath­room with sep­a­rate toi­let as well as the laun­dry with walk-in linen and a third toi­let.

At the rear, the light­drenched open-plan fam­ily space en­gulfs the en­tire area and in­te­grates beau­ti­fully with the out­doors.

The kitchen takes pride of place and boasts some of the best views of the back yard. It has cup­board and drawer space, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and glass splash­backs.

Step­ping out­side to the decked al­fresco area un­der the main roof, there is am­ple room for the big­gest sum­mer soirees. Glass fenc­ing en­sures the views are un­in­ter­rupted across to the se­cond deck, a lovely spot for sun wor­ship­pers.

Of­fers will be ac­cepted up to 5pm on Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 10.
