Brighton up your life­style

It’s a dream home come true, writes Tom Dougherty.

ABLOCK near the beach at South Brighton was ideal for ven­dor Michael Clarke and he then cre­ated his dream home. ‘‘When we moved out here from the UK we promised our­selves beach­side liv­ing, and we liked the Brighton area and loved the size of the plot,’’ he says.

‘‘So we pur­chased the house that was on there and de­mol­ished it and got Scott Sal­is­bury to build us what we thought was our per­fect house.’’

The property has four bed­rooms, with the mas­ter at the front on the ground floor.

It fea­tures a walk-in robe, an en­suite with a shower, and french doors that open out to a court­yard at the side of the home.

There are three more bed­rooms on the top floor, all fea­ture walk-in robes and one has an en­suite with a shower.

Also up­stairs is a fam­ily room and a two-way bath­room with a bath.

The main liv­ing area is at the back of the home on the ground floor and it con­sists of an open-plan kitchen, din­ing and liv­ing area, which has a whitetiled floor.

‘‘We re­ally wanted to in­clude sim­ple, open-plan liv­ing with high ceil­ings and plenty of light; we wanted to max­imise the nat­u­ral light you get here in Aus­tralia,’’ he says.

Fea­tures of the kitchen in­clude an is­land bench with a break­fast bar, mod­ern stain­less steel ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing an in­duc­tion cook­top, a 900mm-wide oven, Cae­sar­Stone benches and a but­ler’s pantry.

French doors open out from the liv­ing area to a cov­ered en­ter­tain­ing area, which has an extender blind, Cae­sar­Stone benches, a built-in bar­be­cue and hot­plate, and there is a deck ad­ja­cent.

It looks over an in­ground fully-tiled 25m Magna pool that is sur­rounded by frame­less glass fenc­ing.

There is also a for­mal lounge­room down­stairs, a laun­dry with ex­ter­nal ac­cess, and a dou­ble garage at the front with an au­to­matic roller door.
