De­sign­ers lay down the Lawler

Still on the cut­ting edge. By NA­TALIE HORDOV

AT first glance this home is rem­i­nis­cent of its 1980s ori­gins, but a sub­stan­tial ren­o­va­tion has given it a mil­len­nial-age edge.

The owner en­gaged Green-shore Builders and Adele Sil­cox In­te­rior De­signs to cre­ate a low-main­te­nance, light-filled modern two-storey home with good sep­a­ra­tion be­tween par­ents and chil­dren.

The fittings and fin­ishes are high qual­ity and in­clude Ital­ian ce­ramic floor­ing and New Zealand wool car­pets.

The home has am­ple liv­ing space, with a lounge area, liv­ing room, and open-plan din­ing/kitchen/fam­ily room in the front part of the house.

The kitchen has high-end ap­pli­ances, stone bench­tops, break­fast bar and plenty of bench space and stor­age.

The din­ing area, fam­ily room and liv­ing room all open to a cen­tral out­door area with paved al­fresco area and pool.

A bath­room, laun­dry and three be­d­rooms with ei­ther walk-in or built-in robes are at the back of the home.

A con­tem­po­rary stair­case with glass balustrade in the lounge leads up to the par­ents’ zone with study/sit­ting area, bath­room and bed­room with built-in robe.

The ground-floor be­d­rooms have gar­den views and the owner said from the mas­ter bed­room you could see across down­town Su­bi­aco to close to the rail­way sta­tion across a vast amount of fo­liage.

The leafy 607sq m block also in­cludes a car­port with park­ing for two cars, plus park­ing for more ve­hi­cles, and at­trac­tive gar­dens.

Other fea­tures in­clude floor-to-ceil­ing tiling in the bath­rooms, air­con­di­tion­ing and se­cu­rity.

The owner loves Su­bi­aco and this was one of the main at­trac­tions when he pur­chased the prop­erty.

“I have spent many years in Su­bi­aco post-board­ing school,” he said.

“I used to fre­quent the Cock and Bull Ho­tel on Rokeby Road in the mid ’80s; my un­cle Rod­ney Roberts owned the quin­tes­sen­tial icon in Su­bi­aco.

“We love this area, and the house, but when our chil­dren get a bit older they will at­tend pri­vate schools and we want to live closer to the schools.” ■
