Modern fam­ily liv­ing at its best

A LOT of thought went into the de­sign of this striking two-storey home on an 843sqm block.

“We had a year-long dis­cus­sion with an ar­chi­tect to nut out our con­cept,” the own­ers said.

“Our vi­sion was to meet the needs of a grow­ing fam­ily and for en­ter­tain­ment and keep­ing the house neat all the time.

“We wanted large, wide-open spa­ces with a modern, min­i­mal­ist ar­chi­tec­tural vibe.

“We also wanted to bring the gar­den vista into the main liv­ing area.”

The re­sult is a stun­ning home that thor­oughly suits fam­ily liv­ing.

On the ground floor, the liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen area is spa­cious and invit­ing with clean lines, gleam­ing jar­rah floor­ing and soar­ing win­dows.

It has lovely views of the gar­den and pool and opens to the al­fresco area with a built-in kitchen.

En­ter­tain­ing has been easy and con­ve­nient for the own­ers, who have hosted nu­mer­ous fam­ily gath­er­ings and chil­dren's par­ties over the years.

The fam­ily also en­joys spend­ing time in the home theatre/lounge on the first floor.

This room opens to a large bal­cony with views of the river.

There are four gen­er­ously sized bed­rooms, all with built-in robes, in­clud­ing the mas­ter bed­room with re­sort-style en­suite.

While the home is very prac­ti­cal, with plenty of con­cealed stor­age space, au­to­matic blinds and a se­cure elec­tronic gate with in­ter­com, there are many lux­ury touches.

Tim­ber is a key fea­ture, with a sheoak front door, stone and sheoak kitchen bench and sheoak-lined ceil­ings in the al­fresco area and bal­cony, plus a float­ing jar­rah stair­case and jar­rah floor­ing in the liv­ing ar­eas.

Traver­tine til­ing is a fea­ture in the bath­rooms and foyer.

The lo­ca­tion is de­light­ful, with beau­ti­ful walks down to­wards the Pep­per­mint Grove fore­shore and in walk­ing dis­tance of Cottes­loe Beach.
