BEHIND a white picket fence and pretty period facade lies a cleverly renovated and extended home where character and contemporary features meet harmoniously.
The front of the home retains the charm of Cottesloe’s beach cottages, with a wide veranda overlooking the gardens.
In days gone by it would have been a lovely place to sit and enjoy the sea breeze and it remains a great place to relax while the wind whispers through the peppermint trees.
The original part of the home includes a central hallway, three bedrooms and the formal lounge room.
Traditional jarrah flooring meets sleek Italian tiling in the beautiful extension, which was a collaboration between Milieu Creative and The Drawing Shop.
The layout leads past the master bedroom with built-in robes and ensuite; main bathroom with a freestanding bath, walk-in shower and wall-mounted stone and textured timber vanity unit; and laundry with a powder room.
At the back of the home is the chic open-plan living/dining/kitchen area.
Light filters into this well-designed room through highlight and lowlight windows, while louvres capture cooling summer breezes.
The kitchen is a modern marvel with floor-to-ceiling white cabinetry, a Caesarstone island bench with waterfall edge, Miele appliances, Vintec dual-zone wine fridge, window splashbacks, glass pendant lighting and a scullery.
Wide sliding doors open the living space to an alfresco area with built-in barbecue, drinks fridge and recessed thermofilm heaters, and the pool with poolside shower.
A carport behind a secure gate can be used as a second entertaining area.
The home on a 637sq m block also has Panasonic reverse-cycle airconditioning, CCTV cameras and a bore.
