THE sleek modernity of this North Perth home defies its 16 years and it could have been built yesterday.
The builders scratched their heads when plans called for concrete floors.
“It was 2003 and they hadn’t done polished concrete before,” the owner says.
The result is an exquisite black-and-grey flecked floor, contrasting with crisp white walls in the downstairs kitchen and lounge.
Solid white acrylic tops the sweep of benches and the classy island in the kitchen.
The island’s stylish black kick-plate ensures no marks from exuberant guests or unruly kids sitting at the breakfast bar.
The oven, flanked by two massive pull-pit pantries, is set into an alcove with elegant, floor-to-ceiling sliding doors.
Along with a heap of drawers and cupboards there’s a wine rack and a space for a wine fridge.
“There’s lots of storage everywhere,” the owner says.
Banks of glass stacker doors in the dining/lounge area peel back to reveal an entire corner of the home, which has access to a courtyard garden.
Reflections from a stream-lined pond, stretching the width of the property, dance across the dining area, adding to the serenity of the manicured garden, which has raised beds and high fences.
When the mercury rises there’s a two-metre plunge pool nearby, and if you’re feeling energetic there are swim jets that can be used to do a work out like a deranged hamster, says the owner.
Or just chill with a vino on the drinks ledge and let the day’s stresses melt away.
The bedrooms and two bathrooms are on the second level, including the spacious main with its street-facing balcony, walk-in-robe and en suite with double vanities.
This striking Norfolk Street home is within walking distance of Perth and Hyde Park, and is “very close to the airport”, according to the owner, who clearly likes to travel.
