Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

IN scenic Cyg­nia Cove is this coastal-in­spired cre­ation that will ap­peal to the dis­cern­ing buyer.

Own­ers Luke and Sarah built the four-bed­room lux­ury res­i­dence with Ul­ti­mate Homes and moved in on com­ple­tion in March last year.

“We love that we’re in an award-win­ning es­tate in close prox­im­ity to the city and with an em­pha­sis on en­vi­ron­men­tally sen­si­tive de­sign,” Luke said.

“The house is also close to na­ture, the Satur­day morn­ing farm­ers’ mar­ket and in walk­ing dis­tance to the river.”

With trade skills in cab­i­netry and horticulture, the tal­ented duo land­scaped the front and back gar­dens, fit­ted out all the robes and cus­tom made the tim­ber fea­ture wall around the gas fire­place in the lounge.

“Sarah loves cook­ing so the wellthought-out kitchen and scullery de­sign also re­ally suits us, with the added bonus of be­ing able to pick up fresh pro­duce from the farm­ers’ mar­ket,” Luke said.

“We also love sit­ting on the bal­cony watch­ing the sun­set or re­lax­ing in the free­stand­ing bath in the up­stairs en­suite af­ter a long day at work,” Sarah said.

“The open plan liv­ing, din­ing, kitchen flows to the al­fresco area and is ideal for en­ter­tain­ing.”

The res­i­dence has an easy, free-flow­ing lay­out. The main liv­ing spa­ces and mi­nor bed­rooms are on the ground floor, and the mas­ter suite, home of­fice and par­ents’ re­treat are on the first floor.

There is a long list of top in­clu­sions, such as the lime­washed Amer­i­can oak floors, a so­lar panel ar­ray, rain­wa­ter tanks, pro­vi­sion for grey­wa­ter con­nec­tions, a so­lar hot-wa­ter sys­tem and retic­u­la­tion.
