WITH its gleaming timber flooring, coffered ceilings and crisp, white decor this home oozes Hamptons style.
The owners built it in 2016 and the design was inspired by their love of this style and the layout of a traditional Roman home surrounding a central courtyard.
“We wanted to build a warm, light-filled home centred around a pool,” they said.
It certainly is an impressive residence and is also a fabulous family home offering a superbly comfortable lifestyle for all.
It is built in a u-shape, around a stunning pool area, with many rooms opening to or overlooking this space.
The ground floor includes a spacious foyer with stairs to the first floor and access to a room that could be used as an office or living room.
There is also an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area that opens to the pool area.
The kitchen includes a scullery, cool room and huge bench with breakfast bar.
The master bedroom is on the opposite side of the home.
It has an ensuite and walk-in robe and opens to the pool area.
Tucked away in its own zone, it is a wonderful retreat parents.
There are another bedroom and bathroom in the same wing that are ideal for guests.
The owners have four grown-up children and said the house provided perfect separation of children and parents.
With the adults catered for on the ground floor, the first floor can be a dedicated to the children.
It has a living area that opens to a balcony overlooking the pool, four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a powder room.
This home has many gorgeous features, but a standout would be the cabana/alfresco area.
It has a glamorous resort-feel with chandeliers, wood-fired pizza oven, built-in barbecue kitchen and bathroom.
A fireplace ensures year-round comfort.
The owners said it was a great place to entertain or relax and watch sport on the outdoor TV.
Other features include ample storage, including an attic, airconditioning, security, two-car garage and space for off-street parking.
The home is on a 989sq m block and set among beautiful manicured gardens.
The owners have enjoyed living in the area, saying it was a quiet, leafy suburb and one of Perth’s most desirable locations, close to schools parks and cafes.
Their children are moving out and they have made the decision to downsize and hope someone else with a growing family can appreciate the house.
