Modern marvel a rare offering
Light-filled home in heritage area.
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.” ■
