THIS might be one of the most luxurious properties the Voice has reviewed in Yokine.
Featuring a contemporary facade, huge entertainer’s kitchen, gorgeous ensuite and high-end finishes, this four bedroom three bathroom home is going to turn heads in the suburb.
The ground floor has a spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen area with a pristine white colour scheme.
The kitchen is a real cracker with white subway tiles, ASKO appliances and black matt finishes on the cupboards and drawers.
The cooker also has a black finish, seamlessly blending in with the rest of the units, giving the kitchen a minimalist and very chic air.
The use of sheer curtains on the windows helps to soften the architectural lines and diffuse the harsh Aussie sun, giving the large living area a more cosy feel.
There’s plenty of room for a dining table, and roomy lounge setting in the far corner, which is slightly out of sight of the kitchen.
The dinner table is fine but during summer you’ll want to slide back the large glass doors and enjoy some meals in the alfresco, which has stylish downlights in the ceiling.
It looks fully insulated as opposed to a patio, so you should be able to eat out here all-year round. The back garden isn’t the biggest but it has a patch of grass for young kids to play on or for doggies to stretch their legs.
The plus side – it’s super low maintenance, so you can spend your time on hobbies and hitting the beach rather than gardening and costly, problematic retic.
There’s a nice ensuite guest bedroom on the ground floor, which is ideal if you have family coming to stay, giving them a bit of space from the other three bedrooms and extra living area upstairs.
There’s also a kitchenette upstairs, so in theory each storey of the house is self-contained, giving you good separation.
The Chook really likes the upstairs living area – it just feels like a nice space for adults to relax with a guitar or book and have a little break from the kids during the summer holidays .
The plush dark carpets really give the bedrooms a luxurious feel and contrast nicely with the white colour scheme. The main includes a large walk-in robe.
The main ensuite is really smart with double vanities and a large, deep standalone bath.
The distressed-style finish on the wall adds a nice bit of texture to this bathroom. From the main bedroom you have access to a decent-sized balcony with enough room for a cafe setting.
I never see anyone sitting on these street-facing balconies, but at the very least it gives the feeling of more space and light, and it’s there if you need it. I would definitely use it.
The home includes a laundry, scullery, double garage, ducted reverse cycle air conditioning (zoned), genuine oak flooring installed on the staircase and upper living area, and aggregate paving on the driveway, entrance and alfresco.
Situated on a 269sqm front survey strata lot (no common property) on Bourke Street, you are very close to lots of lovely parks, as well as loads of shops and cafes at Flinders Square, and the city is only a short drive away.
