Modern, Fresh Home in the Heart of Old Subi
Designed by architect Colin Moore, this modern brick and iron home sits in one of the prettiest streets in Subiaco.
Tucked away behind one of the most interesting sections of Rokeby Road, you could not ask for a better location.
It is a house designed for busy people – you will be able to relax and enjoy easy entertaining with a minimum of fuss.
The layout has been optimised to create a good degree of separation between the bedrooms, and as is the modern preference, each of the bedrooms enjoys its own bathroom.
Entry from the street is through a secure gate with a pretty garden walkway that leads down to the front yard.
Mature gardens, attractive paving and a vergola-style roof allow this area to be a focal point throughout the year – the perfect spot for casual evening drinks or a BBQ.
The interior of the house reveals itself as you walk from the alfresco through the large sliding doors into the combined living, dining and kitchen area.
With a polished concrete floor, stone benches, quality Miele appliances and a simple palette, this space provides the perfect canvas for your stylish furnishings.
An unexpected bonus is the good amount of wall space for hanging art.
A beautiful staircase provides the perfect counterpoint to the room, and the clever design utilises the normally wasted under stair area as the laundry.
The rear of the ground floor is dedicated to a large bedroom with ensuite and an abundance of storage space.
This bedroom enjoys direct access to a garden courtyard, also accessible from the open plan living space.
Upstairs there is a second living space with built in kitchenette, perfect for watching a film or taking some private time to read a book.
The enormous master suite is located at the front of the home and has a beautiful dormer window as a focal point. There is a vast amount of cupboard space, and a huge ensuite bathed in natural light, with twin vanities and deep freestanding tub. The remaining bedroom is at the rear, and also enjoys a large amount of storage as well as a dedicated bathroom.
Garaging for two cars is off the generous rear laneway, and the garage area enjoys a partial vergola-style louvred roof, allowing light and ventilation to be increased as desired.
Additional features include split system air conditioning, intercom with camera and instantaneous gas hot water system.
This is a lovely, easy care home, in a stellar location, only steps away from excellent cafes and restaurants. Kings Park is very close and the CBD is only a short walk.
If you love old Subi, but desire the easy care Centro lifestyle, then this is the house for you!
