Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

AS the say­ing goes, fam­i­lies that play to­gether, stay to­gether.

And what bet­ter place to do this than in the com­fort of your own home, as own­ers Karen and her hus­band Gra­ham can at­test.

“We de­signed the house and built it with Ross North Homes eight years ago; they ba­si­cally worked with our de­sign and added a few ideas of their own,” Karen said.

“When we built it, we went with the open plan be­cause we en­ter­tained a lot, so we cre­ated the games room that leads out to the al­fresco area.

“Then our daugh­ter Danika came along and it ended up work­ing as well be­cause I can watch her in the back yard from the kitchen.”

Boasting 203sq m of ac­tual living space across the res­i­dence, fam­i­lies can rest as­sured ev­ery one will find a nook to call their own.

In ad­di­tion, only topqual­ity fit­tings and fin­ishes have been used in the de­sign as well, in­clud­ing tim­ber floor­ing, sleek win­dow treat­ments and plush car­pet.

Past the Tus­cany-in­spired el­e­va­tion, fea­tur­ing a wa­ter foun­tain and lush gar­dens, the home opens up to re­veal roomy fam­ily spa­ces.

At the front, off the main hall­way, is the home theatre room with re­cessed ceil­ing.

Fur­ther in­side is the free-flow­ing main living space fea­tur­ing a spa­cious kitchen that over­looks a sunken games room with a built-in bar.

This extends out to the al­fresco area un­der the main roof with a built-in bar­be­cue and down­lights.

A tidy stretch of lawn and a gar­den shed com­plete the pic­ture.

All bed­rooms are dou­ble sized ex­cept for the gen­er­ous 20sq m mas­ter suite, which comes with his-and-hers walk-in robes and an en­suite.

The floor plan is rounded off with a pri­vate home of­fice for busy mums and dads and the dou­ble garage with shop­per’s en­try, all on the 490sq m block.

Crea­ture com­forts in­clude re­verse-cy­cle ducted air­con­di­tion­ing, so­lar power, a smart-wired in­ter­net con­nec­tion, full se­cu­rity screen through­out and an alarm sys­tem.

“The street is very, very quiet,” Karen said.

“There are a few young fam­i­lies living there now and we’re also close to a school so it’s a lovely street to live on.”
