Long search fi­nally yields true love

Of­fer made af­ter one walk-through. By NATALIE HORDOV

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Cover Story -

THE owner said they looked at 76 homes over six months, from Su­bi­aco to North Fre­man­tle, be­fore find­ing this tri-level home on a 344sq m block. It was love at first sight.

“I walked along the board­walk, over the koi pond and liked the feel of the home,” they said.

“By the time I got to the top floor and looked over the pine trees of Pearse Street, I said to the agent ‘let’s make an of­fer’.”

Built in 2009 by Giorgi Builders & Ar­chi­tects, the home has a flow­ing de­sign and a trop­i­cal re­sort style, where in­doors and out­doors blend seam­lessly.

The lower level in­cludes a three-car un­der­croft garage with two store­rooms.

The ground floor houses a light and airy open-plan liv­ing/din­ing area that opens to an al­fresco area.

“My favourite place in the house is ac­tu­ally out of the house – the front ground-floor pa­tio,” the owner said.

“Seated on jar­rah boards, with a broad cof­fee ta­ble and a day bed look­ing out to the pine trees, I have spent many a lazy hour lis­ten­ing to the wind blow­ing through the tops of the trees.”

The din­ing area flows through to the cen­tral state-of-the-art kitchen with gran­ite bench­tops and white gloss cab­i­netry.

As you head to­wards the back of the home there is a study and lovely mas­ter bed­room, with a walk-in and built-in robe and en­suite, which opens to a tran­quil deck.

Up­stairs is an­other liv­ing room that opens to a bal­cony, two study ar­eas, three be­d­rooms with built-in robes and one bath­room.

The owner said they would miss liv­ing in quiet Pearse Street with its close-knit com­mu­nity.

“The street feels like the UWA Somerville the­atre, so each year I cover the front of the home with a 5mx4m white screen and show a for­eign film,” they said.

“About 150 peo­ple pic­nic on the front verge for a ‘Somerville’ ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We also have great street par­ties each Christ­mas.”

The home is for sale by open ne­go­ti­a­tion.
