Modern marvel a rare of­fer­ing

Light-filled home in her­itage area.

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Reviews - By NATALIE HORDOV

WHEN plan­ning this home, prop­erty de­vel­oper He­lena Far­rell wanted a res­i­dence with a modern edge and an abun­dance of light, on a com­pact block in the midst of the Mt Law­ley her­itage area.

"The idea was to pro­vide a prop­erty in con­trast with the darker her­itage homes on large, high-main­te­nance blocks," she said.

"This res­i­dence is con­sid­ered a rare of­fer­ing within this area."

De­signed by ar­chi­tect Priscilla Khoo, the two-storey home will be com­pleted in Jan­uary 2018.

It will have an open-plan din­ing/liv­ing area in­clud­ing a kitchen with Car­rara mar­ble bench­tops and splashback, soft-clos­ing draw­ers and doors, and a step-in pantry.

The liv­ing area will open to a spa­cious al­fresco area.

There will also be a the­atre room and an up­stairs liv­ing area with a builtin bar with sink and fridge nook.

This liv­ing area will open to a large deck with city views.

The home will have four bed­rooms, and two bath­rooms with mar­ble and mo­saic til­ing.

There will be lux­ury fea­tures through­out, in­clud­ing high ceil­ings, Euro­pean til­ing, frame­less glass and stain­less steel balustrades, solid oak treads on the stair­case, wool car­pets, dou­ble-glazed win­dows and doors, and stone bench­tops in the bath­room, laun­dry and up­stairs bar.

Ms Far­rell said the se­cure home and lo­ca­tion, within walk­ing dis­tance of Mr Law­ley's iconic cafe strip, of­fered an ex­cep­tional life­style.

“The area and house will be per­fect for a low main­te­nance, busy life­style or any­one just want­ing to en­joy life and re­lax,” she said.

“Ev­ery­thing you want and need will be at your fin­ger­tips; cafes and restau­rants are a few min­utes away, as is beau­ti­ful For­rest Park where you can take the dogs for a walk or just chill out.” ■
