Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

A LIFE­STYLE fo­cused on fam­ily time and set against the back­drop of stun­ning vis­tas of the Can­ning River is on of­fer here.

Over the past 19 years, this beau­ti­ful art deco-in­spired mas­ter­piece has been filled with the beau­ti­ful mem­o­ries of its own­ers.

“Our home has been the cen­tral lo­ca­tion of nu­mer­ous ex­tended fam­ily gath­er­ings and many ca­sual meals with friends,” owner Den­nis Banks said.

“Sum­mer­time is our favourite time to en­ter­tain, where we open the dou­ble doors of the din­ing area out to the raised deck.

“The ground floor is used by the younger gen­er­a­tion, who move be­tween the swim­ming pool and the games room.”

The res­i­dence, just 100m from the river’s edge on a 789sq m block, will ap­peal to buy­ers who love orig­i­nal 1950s fea­tures such as tim­ber floor­boards, Bake­lite door han­dles and Vitro­lite glass.

But it is the up­side-down floor plan that will im­press as it takes full ad­van­tage of the el­e­vated po­si­tion.

The first floor has free-flow­ing main liv­ing ar­eas, as well as the mas­ter suite.

The first room off the main stair­case land­ing is the mas­sive for­mal liv­ing room, which ex­tends out to the bal­cony.

It also flows eas­ily into the li­brary/pi­ano room and out to the ca­sual din­ing, sit­ting and kitchen space.

This open-plan fam­ily room is home to those hard-to-beat views of the river and be­yond and ex­pands into a quad­rant-shaped out­door en­ter­tain­ing area via dou­ble glass doors.

The mas­ter bed­room, with dress­ing room and en­suite, is tucked away to the left of the land­ing and is close to the fit­ted study, a store­room and a guest toi­let.
