FROM UGLY DUCK­LING TO SWAN

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

STEP into a life of pure lux­ury with this jaw-drop­ping Robert Bi­a­gioni Con­struc­tions de­sign, which is be­ing of­fered brand new and fresh from key han­dover.

The home sits proud on a 503sq m green ti­tle block next door to Num­ber 50, which is also be­ing of­fered for sale by the same owner for a lesser amount as it has no pool.

The owner de­vel­oped the orig­i­nal prop­erty after rent­ing it out for sev­eral years.

“It was a fairly ugly house but had ap­peal with its lo­ca­tion,” she said. “I could see the po­ten­tial.” When she de­cided to go ahead with the sub­di­vi­sion, the owner made it a point to cre­ate top-end prop­er­ties that would ap­peal to mod­ern buy­ers.

“I feel that it was re­ally im­por­tant to of­fer qual­ity and some­thing dif­fer­ent,” she said.

“There are so many spec-built homes and I re­ally wanted some­thing dif­fer­ent.

“I even had to have big dis­cus­sions with the coun­cil plan­ners to con­vince them why I needed to have some­thing unique on the street.

“I am sad to see them go; I could eas­ily live there.”

Past the uber-chic fa­cade un­der the con­trast­ing por­tico, a stun­ning en­try fea­tur­ing Tas­ma­nian oak tim­ber floors leads the way to­ward the back of the home.

Along the way on the right are the dou­ble garage, a guest bed­room with built-in robes and en­suite, a sep­a­rate pow­der room, the home of­fice and the laun­dry.

At the back and in­te­grat­ing seam­lessly with the al­fresco area is the open-plan main liv­ing space.

Com­pris­ing the lounge, din­ing and kitchen – com­plete with a scullery, Smeg stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and stone bench­tops – this is a light-drenched space per- fect for fam­ily time.

The en­tire space also boasts un­in­ter­rupted views of the salt­wa­ter lap pool, which is ideal for par­ents who want to keep a close eye on the kids out­side while get­ting things done in­doors.

Then when all the chores are done, re­lax in the semi-en­closed out­door en­ter­tain­ment space that in­cludes a stain­less steel bar­be­cue.

Go­ing up the tim­ber and stain­less steel stair­case, ar­rive in the sec­ond sit­ting room, which con­nects di­rectly to the master bed­room.

With an en­suite rem­i­nis­cent of the most lux­u­ri­ous ho­tel suites fea­tur­ing a free­stand­ing bath, dou­ble van­ity units and full­height tiling, along with the walkin robe, this is a re­treat in it­self.

Par­ents also en­joy the use of their pri­vate bal­cony, which of­fers city and river glimpses.

To­ward the rear of the first floor, there are two sec­ondary bed­rooms, both with walk-in robes and shar­ing a bath­room and a sep­a­rate toi­let.

Com­plet­ing the floor­plan are store cup­boards on both lev­els of the home.
