Mid-Century Modern Classic
Discreetly nestled into one of Floreat's most loved, tightly held streets where houses rarely come up for sale, directly opposite beautiful native bushland; a magnificent exemplar of classic, mid-century modern architecture and impeccably renovated, extended 1960's residence showcasing clean lines, multiple light filled open plan spaces, enduring materials, and a true connection to the outdoors.
Flawlessly integrated within its landscape, natural elements, colour and texture harmonise the connection between indoor and outdoor, whilst continuity of materials that embody mid-century modern design such as timber, stone, glass, and concrete act as a backdrop to highlight openness, function, and architectural form. Striking skillion roofs, wide eaves, timber cladding, vast expanses of floor to ceiling glass, warm jarrah floors, soaring timber ceilings, subtly textured plaster, exposed brick arches and walls feature prominently in this outstanding family home.
Perfectly oriented to capture natural light and glorious ocean breezes, peace, and tranquillity reign. Offering a versatile, family focused floorplan, expansive open plan living, dining and kitchen are centrally located, with separate zones at either end of the home for parents and children or guests. At the front, a fabulous living room and games room with seating alcove and curved brick bar; behind the arched timber door, a sleeping wing with 3 bedrooms and fabulous family bathroom. Bathed in natural light, the dining area with a wonderfully curving wall is large enough to seat 10 or more people and abuts the modern, superbly appointed kitchen. Expanses of stylish terrazzo top sleek white and charcoal cabinetry, tons of storage and a super Ilve freestanding range makes entertaining easy for the home chef. Stacking doors open to the fabulous north facing entertaining alfresco and pristine pool.
The east wing at the rear of the home hosts the lovely master bedroom with fitted walk in robe and en-suite, a living room and temperature-controlled wine cellar/store. Step outside to the covered terrace, to glorious private landscaped gardens with manicured lawns, a stunning deep pink hibiscus hedge, vibrant pink frangipani trees and a delightfully tranquil, tucked away corner for two under a beautiful jacaranda…
Parking is plentiful - a double carport to the front, a gated paved driveway for 4+ cars and behind the garage door - room for a car and a trailer, or a camper trailer, or a tinnie - there's abundant parking space and storage here.
