Simplicity of design, smart use of proportion and a natural palette of materials were the keys to creating this elegant home.
Designed by Mick Rule for a large family of keen entertainers, it has a U-shaped plan that wraps around an alfresco area, 12m lap pool and courtyard. It also contains private guest quarters and a 20-seat dining room for more formal occasions.
The elevated site has front northern exposure, maximised by use of a side lane for car access and side garage. This softens the feel of the front of the home and allows for extensive glazing to make the most of winter sun, and also, a front courtyard.
The front door is on the side and upon entering, a sight line to the alfresco area and pool offers light access and visual stimulation.
The children have their own wing, with television room and homework area linked to double-size bedrooms, where they can enjoy a taste of independence in their own space.
Meanwhile, the parents can enjoy a tranquil break from family life in their own luxurious quarters – a bedroom with views of the Cottesloe pines, ensuite and balcony.
Set in such a beautiful suburb, indoor/outdoor living was important and was achieved by opening the simple elongated indoor living area on two sides.
