WHEN A HOUSE BECOMES A HOME
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.
