THIS two-storey home holds many happy mem­o­ries for the own­ers, who have cel­e­brated sev­eral mile­stones since mov­ing in seven years ago.

“We started out en­gaged, got mar­ried, started two busi­nesses and have had three chil­dren in this house,” they said.

“Our chil­dren have learned to walk and talk here and ride their bikes out on the street.

“We have shared cups of tea with the neigh­bours and an­nual Christ­mas bar­be­cues with ev­ery­one on the street and laneway.”

The home is light-filled, with high, raked ceil­ings and golden-toned tim­ber floor­ing in the liv­ing ar­eas.

The own­ers have car­ried out ren­o­va­tions, cre­at­ing a “unique home with a gor­geous tran­quil feel”.

“The mo­ment you close the gate it is like your lit­tle sanc­tu­ary,” they said.

They have up­dated the front gar­den area, ad­ding ar­ti­fi­cial, low-main­te­nance lawn and turn­ing the wa­ter fea­ture into planter beds to re­move any dan­ger to chil­dren.

“This has ex­tended the liv­ing area and made it very child-friendly, be­ing able to close the gate and let the chil­dren play,” the own­ers said.

On the ground floor, the home has an open-plan liv­ing/kitchen/din­ing area that opens to a ve­randa and front yard, master bed­room with built-in robe, and bath­room.

Two more bed­rooms and a pow­der room are up­stairs.

There is an­other ve­randa at the back of the home.

It leads out to a bar­be­cue area and pool. The se­cure dou­ble garage is at the back of the block, with ac­cess from a rear lane, and in­cludes a studio.

“The studio was a won­der­ful, pri­vate space for an of­fice and to work from home, and also a spare bed­room,” the own­ers said.

The home is on a 473sq m block and the own­ers said the lo­ca­tion was ar­guably the best pocket in Su­bi­aco.

“The neigh­bours have be­come great friends,” they said.

“We have re­ally en­joyed walk­ing to our morn­ing cof­fees at Lit­tle Pantry and Mel­o­grano, and a wine at Juani­tas at the end of the week.

“The kids love the lo­cal parks – we have spent a lot of time at the many parks, in­clud­ing our self-named Lit­tle Pussy­cat play­ground just around the cor­ner.” ■
