A TOUCH OF CLASS IN MANNING
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.
