Poetry in motion

I’VE never seen anyone get so excited about opening a pull-out pantry than the owner of this Mt Hawthorn home.

The drawers are so deep the owner jokingly refers to them as coffins.

“You could fit a whole supermarket in this pantry,” she says proudly.

The kitchen in this art deco home had a total overhaul a couple of years ago, and it’s no surprise it’s her favourite room.

“I love the big cooker,” she says, pointing out the shiny- black stainless steel monster that boasts three ovens.

It’s set amid a bank of white drawers, with white Caesarstone tops, and a matching set of almost floor-to-ceiling cupboards.

The formal lounge has a gas “fireplace” and is in the original section of the home.

Close by is the main bedroom: a huge space with a generous walk-in-robe and an ensuite tiled in neutral, earthy-stone colours.

A huge glass door shuts off the front of the home from the rear, which is great for climate and noise control.

The bleached jarrah of the original section flows into the open plan—a commodious space that looks even larger thanks to the bifold doors that lead to the alfresco.

Indoor meets outdoor in this semi-tropical paradise, which includes sandstone flagstones, and shade cloth that forms a peaked ceiling, creating an exotic tent-like effect.

The soothing tinkle of a water feature adds to the ambience, as does the Bali-style cabana next to the sparkling pool.

High fences and attractive plantings make the garden private and there’s plenty of opportunity for a bit of skinny dipping. A spacious loft has city views and would make a great play room, sewing room or teenage pad.

Located on Shakespeare St, this family home has plenty of areas to have fun together and some nice spots for a bit of solitude.
