THE owners were already living in the area and were looking for a home with more space when they bought this tri-level residence in 2008.
“We were attracted to the home instantly,” they said.
“It has multiple living zones and a spectacular view from the main living area, which brought the whole family together.”
The home was built in 2004 after an old house was demolished and the block subdivided.
The lower level includes a double garage with store room, a games room that opens to a paved terrace and the front yard, kitchenette, cellar and bathroom.
“This living zone, with bathroom and kitchenette, was a fantastic teenagers’ retreat,” the owner said.
“Lots of food was delivered via the dumbwaiter from the kitchen on the upper level.”
The main living areas are on the first floor and include a theatre room and open-plan family/dining/|kitchen area with Tasmanian oak flooring.
“The kitchen is the hub of the house and has interrupted views of the city skyline, so even when you’re washing dishes, the view is different and ever-changing depending on the time of day and season,” the owner said.
The living areas open to a balcony that runs along the front of the home and is a great place to enjoy an Australia Day barbecue and watch the fireworks.
The owners said it had views of the city skyline, the Perth Hills in the distance, the local park where weekend cricket and football matches take place, the beautiful trees in the area, the bird life that visited the garden, and the resident kookaburras that sit on the neighbour’s antenna.
There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms on this floor.
The master has a walk-in robe and elegant ensuite with a double vanity unit and heated towel rails.
The other bedrooms have built-in robes and share use of the main bathroom with bath and separate powder room.
The laundry is also on this level and opens to the backyard, where the owners have created a tropical retreat with fruit trees, passionfruit vines and herbs.
The home is on a 488sq m block and the owner said it was in the perfect spot with “everything” close by.
“The beach, Wembley Golf Course and a great variety of restaurants, Bold Park, Perry lakes, the basketball stadium, Challenge Stadium, several fantastic shopping centres, it is walking distance to Hale, Churchlands, Newman College and several primary schools, and the city is 15 minutes away on a busy day,” they said.
