Just go with the flow

This mod­ern makeover works per­fectly, writes Tom Bow­den.

WHEN Julie and Richard Hart built a home at Tran­mere two years ago, they knew they wanted a change. ‘‘We had a char­ac­ter home so we wanted some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent and that’s the rea­son we went mod­ern,’’ Mrs Hart says.

The home has wired sound, open-plan liv­ing and qual­ity fit­tings, she says.

Mrs Hart says the home was de­signed to ac­com­mo­date fun and fam­ily. ‘‘We en­ter­tain a lot so we made sure we built a place that was per­fect for do­ing that,’’ Mrs Hart says.

‘‘And, be­ing Ital­ians, we’ve got big fam­i­lies and when­ever it’s some­one’s birth­day we get a whole lot of people over to the house and it works per­fectly for that.

‘‘There are so many parts of the house for people to gather when en­ter­tain­ing, and I love how it opens out and flows beau­ti­fully from the front to the back­yard.’’

The open-plan kitchen fea­tures stain­less steel ap­pli­ances, an is­land bench with stone bench­top and break­fast bar and am­ple stor­age op­por­tu­ni­ties.

‘‘One of the best things that I’ll re­ally miss is the larder room, be­cause the kitchen al­ways looks nice and tidy be­cause ev­ery­thing is in there out of sight,’’ Mrs Hart.

‘‘And it’s also re­ally handy be­cause it opens to the garage as well so you can just load all your gro­ceries straight into it.’’

The home has four bed­rooms. The mas­ter suite has a walk-in robe and an at­tached en­suite with walk-in shower and a tele­vi­sion.

An out­door kitchen with bar­be­cue, sink and tele­vi­sion opens out to an in­ground spa with wa­ter fea­ture and an in­frared sauna.

Mrs Hart says the home’s lay­out - with the bed­rooms at op­po­site ends of the house - was per­fect for a fam­ily, and that ev­ery­thing their fam­ily needed was close by.

‘‘We loved Tran­mere be­cause it’s not too far from the city,’’ Mrs Hart says.

‘‘And we have shops close and my son is into ten­nis and there are a lot of ten­nis courts around, and with me work­ing in the city, it’s just such a handy spot.’’
