WHEN it was built in 1993, the original home was named Home of the Year in its category.

After an extensive rebuild, it deserves another accolade or two.

It certainly makes a good impression as you turn into the driveway and it is just as attractive inside.

The current owners bought the house, on a 410sq m block, in 2011 and saw its potential for renovation.

“The home was 1990s Tuscan-style, a lot of terracotta was used internally and the rooms were very dark and closed off,” they said.

“The main focus of the rebuild was to create a light-filled, open-plan home while maximising the north-facing back garden.”

The interior design is a blend of modern, beach and Scandinavian style.

“We wanted to achieve a relaxed comfortable feel throughout with a touch of glamour,” the owners said.

The ground floor includes a study (or fourth bedroom), formal dining area, theatre room, and an open-plan kitchen/meals/living area.

“This area is our favourite place in the home and where we spend the most time,” the owners said.

“The kitchen is very functional and extremely glamorous with Calacutta marble, oak, mirrored splashbacks and Miele appliances.

“We also love how this space spills into the alfresco area through huge commercial glass sliding doors.”

On the first floor, the master bedroom, with large walk-in robe and ensuite, opens to a balcony.

Watch the sun rise over the city, or just spend some quiet time here during the day.

There is also a study area, two more bedrooms and the second bathroom.

When they first viewed the home the owners fell in love with the beautiful street and its closeness to the beach.

“Cottesloe is the best suburb to live in,” they said.

“We love that we have the beach basically at the end of the street and we are walking distance to some of Perth’s top cafes and restaurants.

“The amenities around here are second to none.”
