Design, and built by Nardi Construction, the
home is located one street back from the Swan
River, resulting in a high water table. To resolve
this and make way for a below-ground pool
and wine cellar, specialised engineering and
waterproofing solutions were adopted.
The classic Australian colonial theme is
evident in every aspect of the home, from
the front verandah and detailed timber portico,
to the entrance side lights and colonial glazed,
arched highlight. Exposed rafter ends, arched
mouldings and period windows complete the
Internally, the distinct style is continued with
high ceilings, picture rails, and detailed cornicing
and skirting created by Subiaco Restoration.
The ground level of this two-storey home
combines the master bedroom suite with retreat
and ensuite. A large open-plan kitchen and family
living area connects to an expansive outdoor
space with a decked alfresco under a cedar-lined,
pitched roof and sparkling pool.
Upstairs, three double bedrooms, and
a guest suite and study, along with a large
sitting room overlooking the pool, are dedicated
to children and visitors.
Each space works successfully without
distracting from or imposing on the other areas,
allowing for both comfortable combined family
time, and separate parent and children time.
