IT was love at first sight for the owners of this townhouse.
“It was perfect for us to live downstairs, with the master bedroom making it like apartment living, but when family visits they have their own space upstairs, complete with another master bedroom,” they said.
“It’s also a quiet retreat, safe and secure in a friendly complex; being able to lock-and-leave is brilliant.”
The home is one of six Italian-inspired townhouses in the Tuscany Court complex.
It has been redecorated throughout with a white colour palette that provides a blank canvass for furnishings, plush carpets and a new kitchen.
The ground floor includes a formal lounge and dining area; the owners love the view from this room and said it reminded them of living in Tuscany.
“The roof tiles and brick stonework are so reminiscent of Italian summers,” they said.
There is also a study and open-plan living/meals area that includes the kitchen with plenty of bench space, soft-close drawers, AGA Falcon double oven and cooktop, walk-in pantry and Miele dishwasher.
The living area opens to a pretty, landscaped courtyard with easy-care gardens.
The master bedroom includes a walk-in robe and ensuite with bath and has access to the courtyard.
There are three more bedrooms, all with built-in robes, a bathroom and living area on the first floor.
“When our children visited from the UK they loved the downstairs social environment, but loved their ‘own space’ upstairs, complete with 62-inch TV,” the owners said.
The location is convenient and attractive.
The owners said it was an easy walk to shops in Claremont and Cottesloe, a five-minute stroll to Freshwater Bay and about 2km to Cottesloe Beach.
With their children making their lives in Europe they have decided to downsize.
“We simply don’t need the space,” they said.
