SIMPLE LINES OFFER SMART STYLE

With views to Hillarys Boat Harbour and beyond, Bob and Christine Schrader wanted an “upside-down living” design for their new two-storey home after deciding to marginally downsize and sell their previous residence, just 500m away.
Clean, simple lines throughout, extra-high ceilings and door frames, lots of storage space and a big garage were among the Schraders’ top priorities in the design of their custom-built home.
“We decided to build it precisely how we wanted it, not for resale,” Mr Schrader said.
Rosmond Homes architectural designer and draftsman Noorudeen Khan said the stunning facade created a magnificent street presence.
“The engineering was extensive, with big downturn beams, three-course slabs and slab thickenings for the lift and cantilevers,” he said.
Mr Khan said two 61-course high windows to the entry provided abundant light, while 27-course-high windows that extend 17.5m around the home provided 180deg. views of the ocean.
Entry to the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home presents a feature staircase and void.
Further down a hallway is a lift opposite a shopper’s entrance from the four-car garage.
The rear of the ground floor has a big home office with windows overlooking the backyard. To the left of the study is the bedroom wing, with a powder room for guests.
There is also a laundry chute. Upstairs, full-height glazed windows and a big kitchen open to a spacious rear balcony.
The kitchen has white gloss overhead cabinetry, Bosch appliances, Dorf tapware and Caroma basins as well as 40mm Q-Stone Premium Arctic benchtops.
The main suite, near the landing of the second level, has big windows, a walk-in robe and an ensuite with a stone benchtop and double basins.
The home is set on a 457sqm block..
