HERE is an opportunity to make this award-winning Mt Claremont residence your own.
It was built by Distinctive Homes WA for the business’ operations and general management director Simons Herbert and his family.
Last month, the Jolimont-based builder won the Custom Built Home $900,001-$1.2 million accolade at the 2017 HIA Truecore Steel Perth Housing Awards.
“With the home recently winning the award, we are exploring other opportunities in our quest to build new award-winning homes,” Mr Herbert said.
On a 756sq m corner block opposite bushland, the property was designed with a “down south” holiday home feel in mind.
“The high raking ceilings in the entry, kitchen and living room combined with exposed distressed timber beams and operable Velux Skylights provide natural light-filled areas that encapsulate the vibe and feel of the quintessential beach house,” Mr Herbert said.
“An external grade natural grey limestone paver has been used on the floors internally as a tile to create a casual and beachy feel, and this flooring subtly connects with the Jindera stone walling that wraps the in-built fireplace and TV.”
At the front of the home, the huge master suite is a luxurious, private domain with its soft colour scheme, window seat, white shutters, mirrored make-up zone, two walk-in robes and a designer ensuite with deep bath.
Also at the front is a guest bedroom or study with ensuite, while the two minor bedrooms are in a rear wing, which can be closed off, with the designer family bathroom.
“One of my favourite features is the cantilevered staircase that floats over the garden bed below, which then leads you up to a loft area, maximising space without increasing the footprint of the build,” Mr Herbet said.
“Outside, timber decks step up to a large alfresco with white lined timber-raked ceilings and timber fretwork, combined with a built-in barbeque and outdoor speakers that overlook the sparkling pool – all ready for summer months ahead.”
