Top trio ready to go TOP real estate agents Helen Bond, Di Pitchford and Peta Cron are ready to revitalise the Mt Lawley property market under the Ray White name. The three women are successful selling agents in their own right and will soon venture into the rental market, capitalising on technology soon to be released to the Ray White network. Ray White WA chief executive Mark Whiteman said the community would benefit from the enthusiasm and innovation of the team. “We are pleased to announce the opening of our Mt Lawley agency, but more excited that the owners and operators are Helen Bond, Di Pitchford and Peta Cron, the very

Property West agency has moved to new premises to accommodate its rapid expansion WITH the new year came a new office for the team at Joondalup-based boutique agency Property West Real Estate, headed by principals Rob Gooden and Doug Hiley.

To accommodate an expanding team of property managers and sales staff, the agency packed up and moved from its old premises on Grand Boulevard to the new office on

Davidson Terrace in December. Mr Gooden and Mr Hiley, who have more than 30 years experience in real estate between them, established the agency in 2006 to specialise in

form for building their business.” Mr Whiteman said that while the Ray White group was focused on expanding into many locations identified for market growth, the group was particularly committed to lifting quality through ensuring they have the best people on board.

Whether buying or selling, market research is vital

There’s a wealth of real estate information on the internet to assist home owners IN the market to buy a new home? Perhaps you are thinking of selling. According to Brett White of RE/MAX Extreme, whatever the case, you need to research your market. “There is a wealth of information for consumers buying and selling property available on the internet. It is always advisable for consumers to research that knowledge in order to assist with the right deci-

sion for their family,’’ he said. “These days, many websites offer affordable property data to assist consumers. “Buyers and sellers are always wise to fully investigate their area. “Find out what the best streets are and the not-so-good. “Establish the difference in prices between the areas and their proximity to schools, buses and other facilities.”

Mr White said it was advisable to research properties priced 20 per cent either side of your target price as this will give you a good understanding of completion and how minor improvements can reward the seller. For further information, contact Brett White, RE/MAX Extreme managing director, on 0400 952 788 ■

Mark said the team would benefit in coming months from pioneering property management technology that will make the relationship between landlord, property manager and tenant much more accountable and transparent. ■

Spacious apartment is bigger than it looks and boasts incredible views, and a light, bright atmosphere. By COURTNEY NOTTE INCREDIBLE views are just one of the benefits of this renovated first-floor apartment, in a group of six with views of the beach. If you are looking for a low-maintenance, high-quality home, this could be it. For convenience, it is fully furnished with pieces that complement the sleek, contemporary decor. Porcelain floor tiles in a light hue and stark white walls open up the living spaces, including the kitchen, a family room and a meals area. Big windows and several sets of glass sliding doors to a spacious balcony, ideal for entertaining, let natural light in and make the space

seem larger. The kitchen is modern and well equipped, with a stainless steel oven, dishwasher and rangehood, light cupboards and benchtops, and a tiled splashback. A hallway off the living rooms connects to two bedrooms and a shared bathroom, with a semi-recessed basin to the floating vanity unit and a shower recess with a glass screen. The property is in the 458 amendment and zoned R160. It has security gate entry and a lock-up garage. The apartment is tenanted until April this year. ■

Enjoy villa lifestyle Ideal for entertaining. By COURTNEY NOTTE THE area at the back of this exotic double-storey home was clearly built for entertaining and is just one of the advantages of this luxurious residence, reminiscent of a Mediterranean holiday villa. A pitched cedar-lined roof protects a section of the patio, which has an outdoor kitchen with granite benchtops to built-in low-line cupboards. French doors from the kitchen open to this space, which has an indoor-outdoor feel and is suitable for all-weather entertaining. A second undercover area, accessible from the casual meals area, has a pizza oven and a decorative wrought-iron arbour, with established trees. There is also a fenced pool and an above-ground eight-seater spa. The house is as impressive from the front. Terracotta-hued roof tiles and guttering complement the rendered facade. Timber-look gates and a garage

door are a contemporary addition to the timeless elevation. As well as the entertaining area in the backyard, there are several balconies to the first floor – one overlooking the street and another large tiled balcony with ocean glimpses. Both of these spaces are accessible from a living area with a wet bar. Positioned away from the open-plan kitchen, family room and meals area downstairs, this retreat-style area is the perfect spot for parents to relax. It is next to the spacious master bedroom, with his-and-hers walk-in robes and an open ensuite with a corner spa. To ensure space and privacy, the ground floor has a dedicated minor bedroom wing. Also on this level is a theatre room and a home office, or fifth bedroom for a big family. Extras include evaporative airconditioning downstairs and splitsystem airconditioning upstairs. ■

Stylish design and clever use of space

Living is easy in a prestige estate. By COURTNEY NOTTE THERE is a sense of tranquillity as you drive through the streets of the Willows Estate to this outstanding family home. Established gardens and matures trees add character and charm to the modern suburb, with quality homes close to Lake Gwelup and parklands. Privacy was clearly a priority in the design of this double storey house. A high perimeter fence with rendered supports to limestone and frosted glass panels adds to the appeal of the house and blocks it from view of the road. Users of the pool, which has a stone-clad blade waterfall feature and glass safety panels, will appreciate the privacy it affords. Rough-cut stone that matches the water feature has also been used on the retaining walls that contain low-maintenance border gardens in this area. This kind of attention to detail flows throughout, to achieve a high-quality home that suits a range of lifestyles. A gas fireplace with limestone surround is a stylish addition to a lounge room that

overlooks the pool. Most of the ground floor is dedicated to the open-plan living areas, where the sense of space impresses thanks to extensive use of glass and high ceilings. Floor-to-ceiling windows along two walls work to integrate the outdoor dining area and the family room to create one large indoor-outdoor entertaining space. Tasmanian oak flooring extends throughout these living areas and complements the wood cabinetry in the kitchen. The wet area also features stone bench tops, an electric ceramic cook top, dishwasher and a canopy rangehood. Parents can retreat to the master bedroom, which has double doors to a private space in the garden, as well as frosted-glass doors to an ensuite with a spa bath, frameless glass shower and vanity unit. There is another shared bathroom for two minor bedrooms on the ground floor, and a third bathroom that services the two minor bedrooms and living space on the second-storey mezzanine. â–

Lakeside living with dash of stylish retro Enjoy the panoramic views. By COURTNEY NOTTE DARE to be different and check out this surprisingly spacious family home, with an original split-level design and rare dimensions. The range of views from the tri-level house is one of its best features. It is positioned to take in panoramic views of Lake Joondalup from a fullwidth balcony at the back, and a clever use of glass in the living areas and bedrooms makes the most of the incredible terraced gardens that surround the house. The design seems to have been influenced by another time and a variety of retro-style statement features throughout adds to its appeal. On entry, it has a 1960s feel, with textured walls and a jarrah staircase that splits to the ground and first floors. To one side of the tread staircase, built-in display shelves offer a quirky but practical storage niche. The master bedroom, with corner

windows that take in a garden view and an ensuite, also branches off the foyer. On the top level, floor-to-ceiling glazed glass, including several sets of sliding doors, lead to the big balcony from a gallery or family room. Coupled with a light colour scheme and high ceilings, the extensive glass enhances the sense of space in the huge room. A compact and functional kitchen with wood flooring divides this living area from a dining room and a sunken lounge room, which overlooks a fishpond through corner windows. No opportunity to capitalise on the view is wasted, with windows above the kitchen sink capture the lake outlook. Downstairs, an activity room is the entry point from the double carport. Close to the minor bedrooms and shared bathroom, it is a perfect teen retreat. It leads to a minor hallway, off which branch two minor bedrooms, a shared bathroom and the laundry. ■

Low-maintenance and versatile, it suits a range of lifestyles and is in a convenient location, close to the marina, beaches and shops. Established native gardens act as a natural screen at the front of the home, partially protecting it from view from the road. The main bedroom has a split-system airconditioner and an ensuite. At the front, there is a formal lounge and dining area that can be closed off from the rest of the house for ease of entertaining. The three large bedrooms are spacious and share a bathroom. The kitchen overlooks the open-plan family and dining zone, which in turn opens to the patio, with café blinds. The home is opposite parklands and comes with a powered workshop.
