It’s Tus­cany on the Swan

French dou­ble doors set the tone.

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Reviews - By NATALIE HORDOV

THIS tran­quil res­i­dence has a laid-back Tus­can in­flu­ence.

From the front gate, steps lead down to beau­ti­ful man­i­cured gar­dens and on to the en­trance, with enor­mous dou­ble doors im­ported from France.

The own­ers bought the two-storey home in 2006 and said the river­side lo­ca­tion was the orig­i­nal draw­card, how­ever the soul of the home won them over as soon as they walked in.

“This house truly has a beau­ti­ful feel to it,” they said.

“It was built in 1993 and the orig­i­nal owner built it to a high spec for its time,” they said.

“This in­cluded artis­tic features such as the wood-pan­elled of­fice ceil­ing, the oc­ca­sional coloured tile built into the ex­ter­nal walls and french-style shut­ters.”

In­side the house is won­der­fully light and open, with lovely for­mal and ca­sual liv­ing spa­ces.

These in­clude a large lounge room and the open-plan liv­ing/din­ing/kitchen, which all open to the main out­door en­ter­tain­ing ar­eas, gar­dens and pool.

The own­ers ren­o­vated the home in 2006/2007, adding a games room/fourth bed­room on the ground floor and a scullery with walk-in cool room.

There are three bed­rooms and two bath­rooms up­stairs, all open to a bal­cony with river views.

This house is full of won­der­ful places and the owner said their favourite was the mas­ter bed­room, with its stun­ning views across the Swan River, Point Wal­ter and up to the Hills.

“It is such a re­lax­ing and tire­less scene,” they said.

“Our daugh­ter loves her large bed­room, with its views to the city, which are ex­cep­tion­ally beau­ti­ful at night.

“Our son's favourite place is the Tv/games room and its court­yard, which is next to the pool; a fun in­door/out­door area to hang with his friends.” ■
