The single-storey residence, dubbed The Cambridge, is a gentle nod to the Commonwealth Games era and the 1960s styling that quickly grew popular in the area, with geometric shapes and a monochromatic colour scheme with pops of colour throughout.
It is also indicative of homebuyers’ changing demands.
“While our double-storey offerings have always been popular with our clients, we are evolving with the demands of our homeowners for which single-storey options are increasingly appealing,” Webb & Brown-Neaves general manager Stuart Jeffs said.
“This particularly applies to established suburbs with larger blocks, such as Floreat, that are well-suited to empty-nesters, downsizers and families.
“We like to have a range of homes from our portfolio on the ground for people to see, touch and experience, which is a great point of difference in our marketplace.”
The Cambridge’s contemporary take begins with stack-bond face-brick feature walls in Bowral blue set against a crisp white facade, accented with custom-pressed gutters with a triangular profile.
Inside, the four-bedroom, two-bathroom floor plan is thoroughly 21st Century and has three living spaces including a feature sunken lounge room off the entry with a timber column wall.
This screens the entry to the master bedroom, which has a custom-fitted walk-in robe and ensuite with freestanding bath and semi-framed shower.
Along the central hallway, a natural oak-clad wall leads past the home theatre room, which opens into a central courtyard as does the master suite.
Perfect for lounging, this raised decked space overlooks the main alfresco dining area.
Toward the back of the home, the floor plan opens up into the living, dining and kitchen area, which is sunken to create a real sense of space with 37-course ceilings.
A gas fireplace and natural stone plinth are integrated into the steps that lead down into the room, where the graphite-coloured tiled flooring flows seamlessly out to the outdoor entertaining space.
Barbecues and summer soirees are set against the backdrop of tropical-style plantings in the gardens and to ambient sounds piped through the built-in speakers.
The kitchen and scullery also make entertaining a breeze, complete with luxury appliances and smart storage solutions.
“The Cambridge is a good example of a premium single-storey home, which offers the style, quality and attention to detail that has come to be expected of a Webb & Brown-Neaves home,” Mr Jeffs said.
