EV­ERY­THING A YOUNG FAM­ILY NEEDS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

LONG evening walks around Tomato Lake and the sound of the kids laugh­ing as they play in the back yard are just a taste of what the buy­ers of this Kew­dale prop­erty can look for­ward to.

Own­ers Mark and Melissa, who live in the res­i­dence with their two young chil­dren, said the home was great for spend­ing time as a fam­ily.

“Our favourite part is prob­a­bly out the back; there’s the gar­den, the fam­ily room and kitchen,” Mark said.

“We like sit­ting in the gar­den just with the kids play­ing on the lawn.”

The lakeside home is also close to sev­eral schools and Bel­mont Fo­rum and is just off Oats Street.

The hum­ble street­front is tidy and im­me­di­ately invit­ing, with well-kept gar­den beds and a large frangipani tree beck­on­ing to­ward the en­try.

Step­ping past the se­cure front door, a prac­ti­cal tiled floor quickly makes way to gor­geous jar­rah floor­boards in the for­mal lounge, where a fea­ture fire­place makes its mark.

A door slides back from here to re­veal the for­mal din­ing room, where the sun’s rays pour in through the sky­light above.

Mov­ing to­ward the rear of the house, lofty raked ceil­ings take over, draw­ing the eye up­ward in the vast open-plan fam­ily area.

“We started do­ing the ren­o­va­tions to the house about 12 months after buy­ing the prop­erty and have been con­tin­u­ing to im­prove the home since,” Mark said.

“We put in a lot of ef­fort into the back fam­ily area.

“We re­placed the kitchen about five years ago as well.”

Large win­dows here let in plenty of nat­u­ral light, show­cas­ing the dark tim­bers of the ex­posed rafters and the glossy cabi­netry in the kitchen.

The fam­ily cook eas­ily has the best van­tage point when cook­ing up a storm, with views out to the cov­ered al­fresco area and gar­dens.

With the sum­mer months fast ap­proach­ing, the out­door en­ter­tain­ment area can ac­com­mo­date the largest par­ties and fam­ily bar­be­cues.

Bet­ter yet, use the ex­tra space to in­stall that pool the kids have been ask­ing for.

Com­plet­ing the pretty pic­ture are the master bed­room with built-in robes, en­suite and ceil­ing fan, two mi­nor bed­rooms, a fam­ily bath­room with bath and shower, and a well-de­signed laun­dry.

The house is also air­con­di­tioned and has side ac­cess to a large lock-up garage and the bore-retic­u­lated gar­dens.
