Life is a highway

GET your kicks on Route 66—all from the comfort of your bedroom in Perth.

This Dilhorn Lane home features a stunning wall mural of the famous highway in one of its three bedrooms.

Evoking the free-wheeling spirit of the song, this three-level house is well suited to an upwardly mobile couple who can drop everything and hit the road at the drop of a hat.

Stylish fittings, including polished concrete floors, timber stairs and stainless steel give the home a distinctly modern edge.

The two bedrooms on the ground floor are spacious and have doors leading to a private courtyard, while the central level is the showpiece: spacious and open plan with sweeping golden marri floors.

Banks of windows and floor-to-ceiling glass-stacker doors flood this elegant space with light.

Slide them back and the generous indoor living area extends seamlessly to the balcony.
Designer-rusted screening ensures protection from the elements, and there’s plenty of room for a barbeque when mates drop around for Sunday lunch.

If you’re a budding Gordon Ramsay, you could whip up something more sophisticated in the kitchen.

With its light-grey and white bench tops—including an island/breakfast bar—grey stone splash back, floor-to-ceiling pantry and Miele appliances, cooking couldn’t be easier.

Capping off this impressive home is the third-level bedroom,  with enough space for a sitting area, and a balcony with city skyline views.

Or pull up a stool and watch Perth Glory on NIB stadium’s giant screen across the road.

If you fancy eating out, a heap of cafes and bars on Beaufort Street are within walking distance of this industrial-style home.

And the CAT bus stop is almost on the doorstep if you feel like a quick jaunt to the CBD.
