A stunning family sprawler

EVERYBODY will love this Raymond Street, Yokine home, with its sprawling spaces and stunning timber floors.

The five-bedroom/three-bathroom abode is deceptive from the street.

It covers three levels but I still wasn’t prepared for the spaciousness inside, nor the glorious sweep of golden marri on the floor, with its lovely dark striations and knotholes.

One of the bedrooms is on the ground-floor and is perfect for guests or perhaps ageing parents, with plenty of space and a lovely ensuite.

But you’ll have to keep an eye on the grandkids so they don’t keep nan and pop awake while watching movies in the nearby theatre room.

A vast acreage at the rear of the home forms a sweeping kitchen/dining/living area.

Bifold doors lead to an even bigger entertainment room, with its own bifold doors onto the alfresco area—a sort of recreational airlock.

Inviting the gang/family over is obviously a big thing for the vendors, with the generous kitchen including a scullery, ensuring entertainment success, surely.

Black granite tops in the kitchen extend into the entertainment room, with a generous bench that is an extension of the kitchen breakfast bar—making serving the hordes a cinch.

Push back all the bifold doors and these vast spaces extend to a grassy garden, where the kids can let off steam.

And with home sitting on 438sqm there’s room for a pool.

The middle-level of this home is for the family, with four bedrooms, an activity/play room for the kids, and a sitting room for mum and dad.

The main bedroom is cavernous, and his and hers walk-in robes flank the entry to the very generous ensuite with double vanities. And from the balcony you’re looking at the city skyline.

The third floor is a vast room, perfect for an artist with beautiful natural light from massive windows in the end wall, and a kitchenette for a cuppa while waiting for the muse to kick in.

And when it comes to storing all those canvases a cute door opens onto a massive storage area in the roof cavity.
