THE owners bought this appealing, spacious home on a 779sq m block 13 years ago, attracted by what it and the neighbourhood offered their growing, young family.
“It is a light-filled home, family and entertainment-oriented, plenty of space indoors and out – great for an active family, and located in a safe, friendly and select neighbourhood,” they said.
There is certainly ample room for family living.
The front of the home includes a formal lounge room with fireplace and formal dining room.
It opens out to a large open-plan living/dining/|kitchen area where a double-height void increases the feeling of space and an abundance of windows let in natural light while overlooking the pool and gas-heated spa with custom shade sail and covered alfresco area with rollerblinds for year-round entertaining.
The generously sized kitchen has jarrah cabinetry, a breakfast bar where the kids can enjoy an after-school snack while you catch up on their news and quality appliances including a new Asko pyrolitic oven and steam oven, and appliance cupboard.
A servery window links the kitchen to the alfresco area for easy entertaining.
Upstairs, another living area overlooks the informal living zone; next to the master bedroom with walk-in robe and spa ensuite, it could be an ideal retreat for parents.
A fourth bedroom or study also opens off this living area, while two bedrooms, with built-in robes, occupy a wing on the ground floor near the main bathroom.
When asked about their favourite place in the house the owners found it hard to make a decision.
“We love all our spaces,” they said. “Upstairs, the beautiful view over Herdsman Lake and to the hills, downstairs coffee in the sun lounge, friends in the formal lounge, outside in the patio, watching the family playing in the pool.
“Maybe the best view is simply looking over the expanse of lawn in the front garden.”
The front lawn is extensive and has been the location for many hours of play for their sons with neighbouring children and cousins.
The owners have added to the home and improved it over the years, including increasing parking options as their three children grew.
“We’ve extended the driveway to allow off-street parking as family members have grown and had their own cars,” they said.
“We’ve also enjoyed being able to park our boat at the house, nicely hidden to the side of the garage.”
