Come along to Warralong

IT’S difficult to discern the rock-solid 1950s original underneath the modernisations this Coolbinia home has undergone over the years.

But if you look carefully you can spot differences, including the entry hall which is trendy-retro, with a classic ’70s honey-gold timber ceiling, raw brick wall, and jarrah floor.

The fireplace in the voluminous, formal lounge/dining room looks to be of a similar vintage, while the ceilings are pure ‘50s.

From the street this four-bedroom/two-bathroom home is very 21st century, with sleek lines and a spacious, and meticulously presented, front garden, with raised beds and a pleasant verandah.

The rear extension is also a thoroughly modern space, with a huge kitchen overlooking a very generous living/dining area.

Masses of timber cupboards (including a pantry) and caesar stone bench tops will keep the fussiest of cooks happy.

Peel back bifold doors and you’ll find an outdoor kitchen, with pizza oven, enticingly off a delightful timber deck alfresco area.

High overhead a vergola roof (an auto-louvered system) closes automatically when it rains, or can be opened to allow spring sunshine to pour down.

The deck and the pool below overlook a private park, accessible only to those lucky enough to have properties backing onto it.

A single flight of recycled marri timber stairs off the entry lead to three of the four bedrooms, including the commodious main.

A renovated ensuite, with double vanities, separates a dressing room–which could also be used as a nursery.

More stairs lead to the fourth bedroom, with a built-in-desk. This generous space would make a great teenage pad, where a couch or two wouldn’t crowd a king-size bed.

Family is writ large at this home, and the ground floor garage has been converted into a games room, with a separate study.

But with its own stylish frosted glass entry it could just as easily become a home office.
