It’s like you’re in the tree tops. By NATALIE HORDOV

THE own­ers of this award-win­ning home love Floreat and were look­ing to build a new home in the area, so when the land sales came up in Perry Lakes they jumped at the op­por­tu­nity.

They chose to work with Tony Tomizzi Builders.

“Af­ter three pre­vi­ous builds, which we en­joyed do­ing, this time around we wanted to work with an ar­chi­tect and builder who could meet our vi­sion and work to a bud­get,” they said.

“Tony Tomizzi is metic­u­lous with his work and nailed our brief, so much so that the home won a Master Builders award in 2016.”

The own­ers wanted a low-main­te­nance, prac­ti­cal re­treat full of nat­u­ral day­light, where every room had a view of the great out­doors.

They wanted large, free-flow­ing spa­ces, yet the two-storey home had to have a re­laxed, homely feel.

“This was very im­por­tant to us and we did clever things to make some spa­ces feel smaller, such as re­cess­ing the ceil­ings in the open-plan liv­ing ar­eas,” they said.

“It’s a mas­sive space but it still feels homely.”

The open-plan liv­ing area is on the ground floor and in­cludes a spa­cious kitchen with Asko ap­pli­ances, 5.5m bench and huge pantry.

The liv­ing area opens to an al­fresco area, cre­at­ing a huge space for en­ter­tain­ing, and the wa­ter-wise gar­dens.

“The land­scaped gar­dens are a won­der­ful place to sit while re­lax­ing with a book, cof­fee or glass of wine,” the own­ers said.

“They in­clude three tiled or decked ar­eas where we can fol­low the win­ter sun or seek shade in sum­mer.”

The master bed­room is on this floor and has a walk-in robe and an en­suite with a bath, un­der­floor heat­ing and a lovely gar­den view.

There is also a study/fourth bed­room and sec­ond bath­room.

The first floor in­cludes two bed­rooms that share a semi-en­suite bath­room, a sep­a­rate toi­let and a spa­cious liv­ing area that opens to a bal­cony.

“The up­stairs is a great place to re­treat to and the bal­cony looks out on to the na­tive bush,” the own­ers said.

“The colours of the fo­liage change with the time of day and sea­son and friends say they feel like we are in the tree tops, away from ev­ery­thing.”

The home is on a 514sq m block, at the en­trance to the old Com­mon­wealth Games sta­dium. ■ 4 3 2
