South-west pro­vides sub­lime in­spi­ra­tion for home

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

Award-win­ning builder Dis­tinc­tive Homes WA’S lat­est project is open for view­ing.

Built for di­rec­tor Si­mon Her­bert and his fam­ily, the lux­ury coastal home was in­spired by their time in the South-west.

“The idea was to cre­ate an up­mar­ket ver­sion of the quin­tes­sen­tial ‘down south beach house’,” Mr Her­bert said.

“Some­thing that could be tai­lored to suit a sub­ur­ban lo­ca­tion.”

Dis­tinc­tive Homes WA spe­cialises in high-end ren­o­va­tions and cus­tom builds in the west­ern sub­urbs, us­ing its skills and knowl­edge to build a res­i­dence that meets the client’s wants and needs. As a re­sult, this four-bed­room, three-bath­room house blends sev­eral styles to achieve the de­sired out­come.

The front fa­cade has a more tra­di­tional Hamp­tons look, while the rear of the home in­tro­duces el­e­ments of a plan­ta­tion-style home with high raked ceil­ings and perime­ter fret­work in the al­fresco area.

In­ter­nally, the home in­cludes more con­tem­po­rary themes and styles.

The decor and fea­tures through­out evoke a re­laxed beachy feel with lime­stone floor tiles, light traver­tine tiles, white­washed tim­ber and white walls.

A stone-clad fea­ture chim­ney catches the eye from the out­side, while the same stone has been used to cre­ate a fea­ture fire­place in the open-plan liv­ing area.

More room has been cre­ated with the ad­di­tion of a loft within the roof space.

Ac­cessed by a can­tilevered stair­case at the rear of the home, it could be used as an ex­tra liv­ing area, kids’ ac­tiv­ity room or study, de­pend­ing on the res­i­dent’s needs.

The home, at 19 Cle­land Street, Mt Clare­mont, will be open on Satur­day, May 27, and Sun­day, May 28, be­tween 2pm and 4pm or by ap­point­ment.
