Ver­sa­tile in­side and out

It’s a home for all sea­sons, writes Tom Dougherty.

AN EL­E­GANT villa at Hyde Park be­came even bet­ter af­ter a stun­ning out­door room was added at the back, ven­dor Jenny Richard­son says.

‘‘I liked the el­e­gance of the prop­erty, it is just stun­ningly el­e­gant, and the lo­ca­tion is amaz­ing,’’ she says.

‘‘And we did the out­side ren­o­va­tion, and it is just a beau­ti­ful all-weather space, twelve months of the year we are out there with the wood fire oven, eat­ing out there, it is just amaz­ing.’’

The back of the home con­sists of an open-plan kitchen and fam­ily area with pol­ished jar­rah tim­ber floors and a gas fire.

The kitchen fea­tures a break­fast bar, a pantry, white cup­boards, and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.

‘‘It is lovely, it is the hub of the home, you can see right out to the pool area, and the back of the gar­den, so you can al­ways keep an eye on the kids and see what they are up to,’’ she says.

A glass slid­ing door at the back of the home opens out to the out­door al­fresco area with an out­door kitchen, a built-in bar­be­cue and a ceil­ing fan.

It looks on to an in­ground Magna spa and pool that is sur­rounded by a dry stone wall and teak deck­ing.

‘‘The pool is so­lar heated and at­tached to gas, so if you are hav­ing peo­ple over you can quickly put on the gas and the pool is quite warm,’’ she says.

There is also a lawn area in the back­yard and an es­tab­lished gar­den.

‘‘It’s been beau­ti­ful, we have raised our two chil­dren in it and ev­ery­thing about it is great, it’s ro­bust, it’s con­ve­nient, it is just easy liv­ing,’’ she says.

The front of the house con­tains the four bed­rooms.

The mas­ter is in the mid­dle and it has bi-fold doors that open into a par­ents re­treat with a built-in robe.

‘‘The par­ents re­treat is like a lounge area and it looks out to the front of the home, which is just beau­ti­ful,’’ Ms Richard­son says. ‘‘The rest of the bed­rooms are big, the kids love them.’’

Two of the other bed­rooms have built-in robes. There is also a two-way bath­room with a bath and a shower, and a laun­dry.

Un­der­neath the home is a cel­lar, and there is also a car­port with an au­to­matic panel-lift door.
