HOLOGRAPHIC flames, crystals and white rocks made for an interesting wall feature, but what exactly was generating the warmth from this mysterious, new-fangled “heater”.
“It’s too technical for me, it’s just pretty,” the vendor of this Stuart Street home says of the remote-controlled appliance.
One of a small group of townhouses opposite Robertson Park in North Perth this three-bedroom abode covers three levels.
Bamboo floors cast golden light on the white walls of the spacious open plan, where a long, lean kitchen has a mix of white and glossy black cupboards, a tall pantry, and an expanse of white Caesarstone tops.
Floor-to-ceiling glass opens onto a fenced, front courtyard, which is a great spot for a bit of alfresco dining, or simply relaxing.
But when you feel the need for extra privacy indoors simply roll the plantation shutter doors down, close the white timber louvres and you’re a snug as a bug in a rug.
Follow the “yellow-brick-road” of bamboo stairs to the central level and you’ll find two bedrooms, one with a balcony overlooking the park.
The bathroom on this level has a deep bath to luxuriate in, and a separate shower when you’re in a hurry.
With a second protected balcony to chill on this area is just the shot for teenagers.
With its sweep of bamboo floors, white walls and dramatic touches of black, including a four-poster bed (but that’s going), the main bedroom is a French boudoir crowning the third level.
There’s a walk-in-robe and a very stylish ensuite with double vanities.
This parents retreat also has a balcony overlooking the park.
Stuart St is oneway so traffic noise is minimal and the vendor reckons the noisiest thing is the many birds attracted to the treed parkland across the road.
There’s a two-car garage, but when they moved in the vendors pretty much left their vehicles behind: “We would just walk into work.”
The many great eateries nearby is an added bonus, the vendor adds: “I didn’t use the cooker for the fist six months. It’s just so central.
“I will miss that when we move.”
