WHEN A HOUSE BE­COMES A HOME

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

WALK up to this pri­vate res­i­dence and it feels like a new dis­play home.

Se­cure bound­ary walls, a tim­ber-decked por­tico and video in­ter­com all con­trib­ute to the ul­tra­mod­ern feel.

The owner, who shared the home with his wife and three chil­dren, re­vealed the prop­erty was never meant to be sold.

“We bought it and got straight into the reno with NuLook Homes,” he said.

“We put ev­ery­thing in there be­cause we just wanted a com­plete home; we weren’t buy­ing it to sell it, we were buy­ing it to live there for­ever but, of course, things change.”

In­side the house, on a 764sq m block, the ex­trawide tim­ber en­try swings open to re­veal a lovely foyer with marri hard­wood floor­ing through­out.

Tak­ing up the ma­jor­ity of the 210sq m ground floor is the free-flow­ing kitchen, dining and lounge area, which fea­tures sleek shadow-line ceil­ings.

Cen­tre stage is the state-of-the-art kitchen, with an in­te­grated dish­washer, fil­tered hot and cold taps, Miele ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a built-in cof­fee ma­chine and two side-byside py­rolytic ovens, an in­te­grated fridge, an is­land bench with wa­ter­fall edges and 100mm en­gi­neered stone tops, as well as a scullery with gen­er­ous prepa­ra­tion space.

Off the lounge, a first set of bi-fold doors opens to a 50sq m mer­bau decked al­fresco area with lofty tim­ber-lined ceil­ings with built-in speak­ers, four built-in infrared elec­tric heaters, re­mote-con­trolled pav­il­ion win­dows and an ex­ter­nal toi­let.

It is also home to a fullfledged out­door kitchen with 40mm gran­ite tops, a sink, a six-burner hooded bar­be­cue, fridges and a built-in ice bucket.
