"We liked the aesthetics of the block with its large stone outcrops," the owners continue, "as well as the community culture of the sought after hills area of Perth. The house we have built here makes the most of its setting, with the living areas placed at the rear, away from the road and towards the marvellous city vista. We thus have the best of both worlds: privacy and a view!"
In this unique and innovative house, on a street of standout properties, use of natural materials such as wood and stone in combination with concrete creates a contemporary feeling, with a balance between spacious rooms and surprises around corners to more intimate spaces. "The house itself is arranged to be amenable to everyday family life and entertaining alike," say the owners, "with a communal open plan kitchen, family and dining area forming the hub of the home and flowing easily into the outdoor space. The gardens surrounding the house are planted with grass trees and bushes, creating a natural area to enjoy the outdoors. The family room and al fresco area look across the water of the pool, which is elevated to the same level as the house to create a feeling of infinite space."
The situation of the property in the Perth Hills has much to offer too, with reserves, quarries, and national parks in all directions, and three schools within only minutes from the door. Also nearby are a range of cafes, sport and leisure facilities, local shops, and a popular winery.
