Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

NES­TLED pri­vately at the rear, this home will sur­prise buy­ers in all the best ways, from the whis­perquiet lo­ca­tion to the clever front al­fresco area.

“We love our front en­ter­tain­ing space – the kids are al­ways out there on their scoot­ers and we en­joy chill­ing on the day bed with a glass of wine watch­ing them,” said owner Lisa Caon.

“Plus, the gates mean our pri­vacy and se­cu­rity have never been com­pro­mised.”

Mrs Caon and hus­band Wayne orig­i­nally bought the prop­erty in 2008 and later sub­di­vided the block to build this 190sq m dream res­i­dence at the back.

The cou­ple, who now share the home with their chil­dren Leo (4) and El­lah (2), built with Redink Homes in 2011.

The cen­tral hub is no doubt the liv­ing/meals/ kitchen area, which is bathed in nat­u­ral light and fea­tures rose­wood tim­ber floors.

The chic kitchen has an is­land bench with break­fast bar, 900mm stain­less steel ap­pli­ances, a dish­washer, four-door fridge/ freezer and soft-clos­ing cab­i­netry.

Ex­pand­ing this main liv­ing space is a sec­ond al­fresco space with batu tim­ber deck­ing, which is re­vealed when stack­ing doors slide away.

“This home has been an ab­so­lute joy to live in the past five years,” Mrs Caon said.

“Its lay­out has suited us well with its open-plan liv­ing area and dif­fer­ent zones with space to en­ter­tain as well as raise our two chil­dren.

“And with busy lifestyles, the low-main­te­nance gar­dens are es­sen­tial.”

Other fea­tures in­clude 20 so­lar pan­els, a fresh coat of paint, and NBN con­nec­tiv­ity.
