DUBBED the Aldrich House, this be­spoke de­sign by En­ter Projects im­presses with its ground­break­ing de­sign, which echoes the move­ment of the nearby river and the slight un­du­la­tion of the site.

Be­tween the curves of the wave-like roofline and the ab­sence of 90de­gree an­gles in the house, the liv­ing spa­ces have plenty of vis­ual in­ter­est.

The three-bed­room, two-bath­room res­i­dence, on a 577sq m el­e­vated block, also has a feel­ing of open­ness, ow­ing to its dig­i­tally crafted free-flow­ing lay­out.

But it is the tim­ber view­ing deck on the roof that will catch the in­ter­est of most buy­ers, al­low­ing for panoramic views of the Can­ning River and sur­round­ing park­lands.

That is not to say the fam­ily room or the open­plan kitchen/liv­ing/ din­ing room do not also en­joy the same out­look to the wa­ter’s edge, with ex­ten­sive glaz­ing en­sur­ing there are vis­tas at ev­ery turn.

Through­out the home, the use of nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als, from the rich tim­ber floors to the con­crete sur­faces, lend a mod­ern raw­ness that ap­peals to the senses.

This is jux­ta­posed beau­ti­fully with on-trend fin­ishes such as the kitchen with its high­gloss cab­i­netry, or­ange splash­backs, stone bench­tops and stain­less-steel cook­ing ap­pli­ances.

The home also ben­e­fits from lux­ury ex­tras such as de­signer light fit­tings, ho­tel-style bath­rooms in­clud­ing one with a free­stand­ing bath, and mir­rored wardrobes.

Ideally lo­cated, the home is close to a boat ramp, Aquinas and Penrhos col­leges, Curtin Univer­sity as well as plenty of restau­rants and cafes.
