De­signs on easy liv­ing

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - First Home -

AN ar­chi­tect-de­signed mod­ern water­front home in West Lakes of­fers low-main­te­nance liv­ing.

The ven­dor, who has lived in West Lakes for a num­ber of years, says tak­ing ad­van­tage of the lake was a key fac­tor in the orig­i­nal de­sign with great views from both lev­els.

The abun­dant nat­u­ral light and the neu­tral decor cre­ates a re­laxed feel through­out the home.

The prop­erty has a sleek, mod­ern ap­pear­ance in­side and out but boasts low-main­te­nance, which the ven­dor says would cater well for a pro­fes­sional cou­ple with one or two chil­dren.

Down­stairs the home is dom­i­nated by the open-plan liv­ing area at the rear of the prop­erty, sur­rounded by walls of glass to make the most of the views.

The large fam­ily space, in­clud­ing liv­ing and din­ing area, is punc­tu­ated by a con­tem­po­rary kitchen, with gran­ite bench­tops and Euro­pean ap­pli­ances.

Glass bi-fold doors open to an undercover al­fresco din­ing area, which in­cludes an out­door kitchen, ceil­ing fans and down light­ing and pro­vides ac­cess to an in­ground swim­ming pool.

Also lo­cated down­stairs is a bath­room, the laun­dry and a study, which could be con­verted into a guest bed­room.

Up­stairs there are three large bed­rooms and two bath­rooms.

The mas­ter suite fea­tures a walk-in robe and ensuite bath­room and is sep­a­rated from the large, north-fac­ing bal­cony by a glass wall to cap­ture the views and al­low nat­u­ral light to pour in.

The prop­erty is sit­u­ated on a quiet street be­tween the lake and the River­side Golf Club, with plenty of ameni­ties nearby.

‘‘It’s a very open and clean en­vi­ron­ment,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘It’s close to Foot­ball Park, shop­ping cen­tre and beach, and it’s very close to the city, too.’’

Say­ing the home and the West Lakes area are con­ducive to ‘‘easy liv­ing’’ the ven­dor added: ‘‘I built and de­signed it around an open space en­vi­ron­ment with a lot of nat­u­ral light to take ad­van­tage of the view.’’
