Designs on easy living
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.’’
