EASY-CARE EL­E­GANCE

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential - Ary­lene West­lake-Jen­nings

DE­SIGNED in con­junc­tion with an ar­chi­tect and builder PM Con­struc­tion, the own­ers clearly cre­ated this show­piece home, which was com­pleted in 2008, with their busy life­style in mind.

“At­ten­tion to de­tail was para­mount, en­sur­ing that the home would be time­less, func­tional and easy-care,” the own­ers said.

“There is great sep­a­ra­tion for undis­turbed work in the se­cluded home of­fice and an adult re­treat on the up­per level.”

Adding to that is the home’s top po­si­tion on a quiet tree-lined street with friendly neigh­bours.

“We have easy free­way ac­cess and we’re close to Aquinas, Wes­ley and Pen­rhos,” the own­ers said.

“The chil­dren love Como Beach, which is very eas­ily and safely ac­ces­si­ble via the free­way over­pass at the bot­tom of Cale Street.”

With more than 400sqm of liv­ing space across three lev­els, the home has a mod­ern and ver­sa­tile floor plan an­chored by open, free-flow­ing spa­ces built to a de­mand­ing spec­i­fi­ca­tion.

Buy­ers can ex­pect lux­ury fit­tings and fin­ishes such as high ceil­ings, full­height tiling and stone bench­tops in the bath­rooms, Euro­pean kitchen ap­pli­ances and solid tim­ber and traver­tine floor­ing through­out.

On the ground floor is a jaw-drop­ping guest suite with built-in robes and en­suite, as well as the home of­fice.

Up­stairs, the vast first floor is for liv­ing and en­ter­tain­ing, with a sunken open-plan kitchen, fam­ily and din­ing area that ex­tends into the cedar-lined al­fresco area through bi-fold doors.

“We have cel­e­brated many fam­ily func­tions mak­ing use of the large open­plan liv­ing and din­ing area and the out­door al­fresco area,” the own­ers said.

“It is so easy for en­ter­tain­ing and cook­ing all year round with the built-in Beefeater bar­be­cue and wok burner.”

To­wards the front of this floor are two more bed­rooms with built-in robes cen­tred on an ac­tiv­ity room that flows out to a ter­race.

Com­plet­ing this floor is the well-po­si­tioned laun­dry, which has di­rect ac­cess to a dry­ing court­yard.

This leaves par­ents to fully en­joy the top level, where the master bed­room with walk-in robe and spa en­suite takes pride of place.

It con­nects to a huge lounge with kitch­enette and a gen­er­ous bal­cony en­ter­tain­ing space with views of the city and river, per­fect for those ro­man­tic nights in.

Ex­tras in­clude in­ter­com and perime­ter se­cu­rity, ducted and split-sys­tem re­vere-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing, ducted vac­u­um­ing, smart-wiring, a gen­er­ous out­door stor­age shed and se­cure park­ing for four ve­hi­cles in­clud­ing a boat or car­a­van.
