Global tastes through­out home. By NATALIE HORDOV

THE own­ers of this home have trav­elled the world and brought in­ter­na­tional in­flu­ences to their spe­cial part of WA when they built it in 2016.

There are Turk­ish mar­ble tiles, New Eng­land black­butt tim­ber floor­ing, Vene­tian lime plas­ter wall fin­ishes and im­ported dou­ble-glazed win­dows and doors.

“It is the first com­pletely new home we have ever lived in and that it is one we have cre­ated our­selves makes it even more spe­cial,” they said.

They wanted a light-filled, mod­ern home with a court­yard and the use of dif­fer­ent tex­tures through­out the res­i­dence was also im­por­tant.

A spe­cial mo­ment was when the owner’s mother vis­ited from overseas and saw the prop­erty for the first time “in the flesh” after hav­ing to pic­ture it via de­scrip­tions over the phone.

A cen­tral court­yard is the fo­cus of the home, with a liv­ing area and the kitchen/din­ing area both open­ing to this de­light­ful space.

It is an ideal area for en­ter­tain­ing or sim­ply en­joy­ing the peace and quiet.

The owner said this ground floor area was their favourite place in the house.

“When the bi-fold doors are both open, one en­joys the flow through the liv­ing ar­eas and court­yard,” they said.

“And at dusk and evening we ex­pe­ri­ence re­flec­tions and soft in­ter­nal light­ing pen­e­trat­ing the large ar­eas of court­yard glaz­ing.”

A beau­ti­ful float­ing stair­case leads to the first floor where the three bed­rooms all have their own en­suite, built-in or walk-in robes and ceil­ing fans.

A liv­ing area with tim­ber floor­ing over­looks the court­yard.

The home is on a 231sq m block and the own­ers have en­joyed the lo­ca­tion, in­clud­ing the vil­lage vibe of West Leed­erville, the prox­im­ity to Lake Mon­ger, Leed­erville and easy ac­cess to pub­lic trans­port and free­ways, plus lo­cal cafes, shops and schools. ■
