OSWALD Homes’ newest home the Langkawi is now open for viewing.
Inspired by resort-style luxury hotels throughout Asia, the design evokes the tranquillity of a holiday in a private villa.
Natural materials like timber and stone have been used and the interior decor has been kept neutral, with tones of white and grey, to draw the eye to the water and greenery of the central pond and gardens.
Principal designer Brook Leber said the result was deeply sensory and calming, an escape from modern city life and a place of sanctuary and retreat.
Built in an H shape, the home has 446sq m of living space over two wings making it ideal for multi-generational living.
The stone-clad entry opens to a view across the pond and alfresco area and each wing of the house.
One wing includes the master bedroom with huge walk-in robe and ensuite, study, living area and a guest suite with walk-though robe and ensuite.
The master bedroom opens to the backyard, while the guest room opens to a front courtyard.
The second wing houses the huge open-plan living/dining area called the “Great Room” and kitchen and flows through to two children’s bedrooms, bathroom, powder room and gymnasium.
The luxurious kitchen can easily cope with the demands of family living and includes a large scullery, breakfast bar, Neff cooktops and ovens, appliance cupboard, Caesarstone Nuovo benchtops and white gloss cabinetry.
The living area opens to the alfresco area with built-in barbecue kitchen, timber-lined pyramid ceiling and ceiling fan.
Louvres throughout the home allow cross ventilation and capture breezes across the pond, creating natural airconditioning.
Mr Leber said the Langkawi reflected the passion and commitment Oswald Homes designers had towards capturing a home design style in its essence and filling it with luxurious touches.
“Oswald Homes are highly regarded for our commitment to detail and our ability to design homes of outstanding beauty and excellent functionality,” he said.
“These elements come together in the Langkawi.
“The single-storey home may not boast the imposing elevations of some of our other offerings, but it perfectly captures the resort-style feel, bringing a holiday vibe to everyday living.”
The home at 62 Newry Street, Floreat is open for viewing 2pm – 4pm Saturdays and Sundays.
