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

PLENTY of thought has gone into the con­tem­po­rary and very ap­peal­ing re­vamp of this Como town­house, which is in a very tidy group of four just min­utes from the pop­u­lar Pre­ston Street cafe precinct.

Styled and de­signed pre­dom­i­nantly by one of the own­ers – an in­te­rior stylist – the home now fea­tures light and airy rooms with a func­tional floor plan that works per­fectly for mod­ern liv­ing.

“There are bath­rooms on both lev­els and they now have tim­ber-look tiling on the floors and fea­ture walls,” the owner said.

“Our kitchen has also been re­designed to ar­range all cook­ing ac­tiv­i­ties into a smooth and ef­fi­cient work­flow.”

The home also has three good-sized bed­rooms with built-in robes – one on the ground floor – an open-plan fam­ily/din­ing room ad­join­ing the kitchen, a spa bath in the down­stairs bath­room, a small study nook up­stairs and a ren­o­vated laun­dry with am­ple stor­age.

“One of the other ma­jor changes on the se­cond floor was con­ver­sion of the un­used bal­cony into an ad­di­tional re­treat area,” the owner said.

“It has cre­ated ad­di­tional, use­ful liv­ing space and worked beau­ti­fully for our baby cot; later on it can be used as a nice nook.”

Out­side, the gar­den has lush lawns and batu tim­ber screen­ing defin­ing the al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing area.

“Our gar­den is so spe­cial; we have lots of nicely ar­ranged plants in there, we are grow­ing veg­eta­bles and herbs, and are very proud of it,” the owner said.

“The kids love to play in the gar­den and can be left there on their own as the area is fully en­closed.”

Other fea­tures in­clude se­cure park­ing with loft-style stor­age above, a store­room, an alarm sys­tem and gar­den retic­u­la­tion.
