On right lines for style and practicality
The first impression of the two storey Beaulieu display home in Perth are a combination of strong vertical and horizontal lines, feature-brick cladding and render, creating a confident, eye-catching facade.
Platinum Homes’ director Troy Felt said the Beaulieu was a home designed with style and modern functionality.
“The distinctive exterior features of the Beaulieu, with its rectangular shapes and different window styles, complement the functional layout of this three bedroom, two bathroom, double storey home,” Mr Felt said.
“As you enter through the side porch, you will appreciate the clever design features that give this home its spacious feeling, including wide open voids and large windows.
“The impressive open-plan living area, in the middle of the home uses tall ceilings and window and door features to create a naturally lit, well-ventilated space.”
A wide front door under a porch opens to an entry hall with a handily located study and a separate media room.
Past the staircase and its adjoining feature wall is the open-plan living area. High ceilings, sleek tiles, stone benches and clerestories create a sense of space.
An undercover alfresco area and open pergola are connected to the living area by floor-to-ceiling windows and oversize stacking glass doors.
A long island bench delineates the galley kitchen, which has a separate scullery that can be closed off while entertaining.
At the back of the home are two children’s bedrooms, each of which has a walk-in rob and a separate study nook.
A shared activity room opens to the alfresco and there is a luxury bathroom, separate toilet and laundry.
The light-filled stairwell with glass balustrade leads to the first-floor parents’ rooms.
The retreat has sliding glass doors to a balcony and double doors lead to the main suite.
The bedroom, dressing room and Ensuite have a room, resort-style feel, and high-end fixtures and fittings in the bathroom include double vanity basins, a double-headed shower, central bath and separate toilet.
The Beaulieu would fit on a lot of approximately 700sqm and requires an 18m frontage although the home can be modified to reduce the frontage. The home has a total area or 418sqm.
