IF a newly built home at sought-af­ter Isle of Capri is on your prop­erty list look no fur­ther.

The lo­cale, which is un­der­go­ing a re­nais­sance with the re­cent ad­di­tion of the Capri on Via Roma shop­ping precinct, planned road up­grades and prox­im­ity to the Cul­tural Precinct at Evan­dale, is al­most built out, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to find a brand new prop­erty.

Own­ers An­drew and Fiona Bass­ingth­waite pur­chased and de­mol­ished an older dwelling at 24 Remo St to make way for this brand new con­tem­po­rary abode, built by Val­con Homes.

Mr Bass­ingth­waite said it was cheaper to de­mol­ish and re­build rather than ren­o­vate, and that start­ing with a blank can­vas pro­vided more op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate a unique prop­erty.

“A lot of thought went into cre­at­ing mean­ing­ful spa­ces in the home, which re­flect the way peo­ple live,” he said.

“For ex­am­ple, the down­stairs liv­ing area was de­signed with both a quiet night in and a Sun­day bar­be­cue in mind.

“You can light the fire­place, snug­gle up and watch a movie in the lounge room, but if you’re en­ter­tain­ing, you can make use of the chef ’s kitchen, but­ler’s pantry and the built-in bar­be­cue on the un­der­cover ter­race.”

Mr Bass­ingth­waite said the home fea­tures a “highly in­di­vid­u­alised” de­sign, mean­ing that ev­ery oc­cu­pant has a pri­vate suite to en­joy.

“The home has four bed­rooms and four bath­rooms, so ev­ery­one has their own space and a re­treat from the so­cial hub down­stairs,” he said.
