GO WITH THE NAT­U­RAL FLOW HOME HAS BEEN A BRIL­LIANT PLACE TO RAISE YOUNG FAM­ILY

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

IT is pro­foundly clear just how loved this home is as soon as you speak to own­ers Bianca and Leon Guthrie, who share it with their chil­dren Ava (8), Nate (6) and Darcy (3).

The cou­ple bought the prop­erty 14 years ago from the orig­i­nal own­ers, who built it in the late '60s.

“We were drawn to the lay­out, the po­ten­tial and my favourite thing was the floor- boards,” Mrs Guthrie said.

“We have done a lot of work on the house since and most re­cently had the kitchen and bath­room done and the front gar­den land­scaped.”

From the en­try, the floor plan flows nat­u­rally from the hall­way into the open-plan din­ing and kitchen space, a light­filled room that forms the hub of the house.

This flows on to the play- room or fourth bed­room and the fam­ily room, which fea­tures high raked ceil­ings and views of the back yard.

“The lay­out is ideal,” Mrs Guthrie said.

“It has been great to be able to be in the kitchen and see the kids in the play­room.”

The 746sq m block means there is plenty of room out the back for al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing, which the fam­ily have taken full ad­van­tage of.

Com­plet­ing the home are well-sep­a­rated bed­rooms, in­clud­ing the front mas­ter bed­room with split-sys­tem air­con­di­tion­ing.

“We also love that the house is close to the city, air­port, shops and schools,” Mr Guthrie said.

“Notre Dame Catholic Pri­mary is al­most at the end of our street.”
