Cheryl thrives on daily challenges

Big growth tipped

Leading agent pleased to count former satisfied clients as friends. By COURTNEY NOTTE

YANCHEP and Two Rocks are set to be the two Perth suburbs with the greatest population growth over the next decade. Ray White is predicting significant growth in these areas. Local agent Kylie O’Connor said she had noticed a spike in buyer inquiries and local listings. Ray White Sun City in the New Capricorn Estate is headed by Kylie and her team, including wellknown local agent Kellie Penton, who has returned to real estate after successfully running her own business and Bryleigh Stimpson who has been in real estate for three years. Kylie says there was a need for a well-known and reputable company in the area. Ray White WA chief executive Mark Whiteman said the increase in property activity was expected to continue in the popular holiday destination north of Perth. “Kylie is an energetic operator who has started to make a big impression on the growing Yanchep and Two Rocks area. This is an area that we believe will grow into one of Perth’s most significant markets in time to come,” he said. “The number of houses in both Yanchep and Two Rocks is expected to more than double in the next ten years, as the often discussed ‘satellite city’ takes shape, and infrastructure is put into place.” Ray White Sun City is in the new Lindsay Beach Boulevard Centre off Beachside Parade, The agency can be contacted on 9561 6411 or via ■

REAL estate is a family affair for M&H Sutton Realty sales representative Cheryl McGlashan. Mrs McGlashan is one-half of a two-person team at the eight-person agency, which is owned and run by her brother Mark and sister-in law Heather.

Wide open spaces Enjoy views to the coast and park. By COURTNEY NOTTE CUSTOM designed to take advantage of space on the 748sq m block, and suit family living and entertaining, this two-year-old home is in an elevated position with views over Geneff Park. The imposing facade impresses, with its mocha-coloured render and complementary timber ceiling to the front balcony, and matching timber and glass entry doors. The spaciousness of the home is overwhelming, with several large living areas and big bedrooms that will satisfy the most discerning of buyers. The sense of openness extends to the striking alfresco area, with an elevated patio under the main roof overlooking a big patch of grass with limestone-retained border gardens and a glass-fenced pool. Large windows and oversized stacking doors to the backyard and balcony not only enhance the sense of space, but serve to seamlessly integrate the indoor-outdoor living spaces to make large entertaining areas. A colour scheme made up of earth tones sets off the prolific use of timber in the living areas on the first floor, where the kitchen, meals area and family room connect to the balcony. The kitchen features stone bench tops,

Scooping the Pool Enjoy idyllic coastal living. By COURTNEY NOTTE





POSITIONED one street back from Mettams Pool, this refurbished beachside home offers a rare lifestyle opportunity in a sought-after location. Its elevated location affords enviable ocean views from the front balcony. The unassuming facade belies the charm and warmth to be found inside, thanks to the prominent use of jarrah floorboards, a colour scheme comprising mainly earth tones and designer decor throughout. There are several living areas spread over the two levels. One of the most impressive is the sunroom, with terracotta-hued tiles and wood blinds to a big corner window that takes in panoramic water views. French doors separate it from other similarly appointed living areas. Open-plan living areas that connect to the big balcony make the top floor an ideal space for entertaining or relaxing with the family. Renovations have been completed in

Striking appeal inside and out Distinctive design and resort-style luxury are stunning features of this Easy Living home. By COURTNEY NOTTE CONTRASTING colours and external materials result in a commanding street presence for this distinctive Easy Living home. Two full-height stone panels and matching pillars to a portico with a skillion roof break up the crisp white rendered walls. A cedar-look garage door and lowlying planter boxes complete the modern look of the exterior. The original aesthetic continues inside. Wallpaper is one of several design features that is used prominently throughout to add panache. It first features in a wall recess in the entry foyer, with Kempas flooring, and resurfaces in the open-plan living areas and separate theatre room. Red and black is the theme in this room, with high recessed ceilings and plush carpet. A built-in pantry with frosted glass doors and matching overhead cupboards ensure there is plenty of storage space in the kitchen.

Stone benches, with one round undermount sink, take care of preparation space. Glass splashbacks, high gloss wrap cupboards, a canopy rangehood and stainless steel Blanco appliances complete the kitchen. Stacking doors in the family room integrate this room with the outdoor alfresco area. A tropical-style ceiling fan cools users of the patio in the warmer months. Thatched fencing adds to the Balinese-inspired ambience of the outdoor area. At either end of the patio, decking extends to an outdoor kitchen and an elevated open-air sitting space. For kids and pets, there is a big patch of artificial lawn at the back, with native gardens and water features around the yard. Impressive for its resort-style luxury, the open ensuite adjoining the master bedroom is a showpiece in design and decor.

A cleverly positioned divider wall blocks the shower from view of the bedroom and supports twin square floating basins. A step-up bath is in an enclave to the side of the room, so that despite being open, privacy is maintained in this wet area. Extras to the home include ducted reverse-cycle airconditioning and a remote-controlled double lock-up garage. This impressive home is on a 600sq m block and offers 260sq m of living space. â–

Swing on back to the sixties Influenced by another period but modernised, this home is different. By COURTNEY NOTTE WITH design features and décor influenced by another era, this tastefully renovated home harks back to the 60s. In the process of updating the home, the current owners have moved away from the contemporary style, in favour of rejuvenating existing features for a fresh and original look and feel. Light and bright throughout, with a combination of new plush carpets and polished wood flooring, understated extras give the three-bedroom house a nostalgic vibe while maintaining a contemporary feel with conveniences for modern living. Chic fittings and finishes feature throughout, and add flair to a clean and crisp aesthetic. A timber door separates the formal lounge room, overlooking the front yard, from the entry hall. A painted, timber-panelled wall is a subtle but effective means of invoking the circa-60s atmosphere in relaxation room, as are decorative, bi-part-

ing doors in the kitchen and meals. A mocha feature wall complements wood flooring and cream-coloured cabinetry in a compact kitchen, with a dishwasher and gas cook top. From here, glass panel doors open to a sunken living room at the back, with high beamed ceilings and exposed brick walls. A gas log fire on, a low brick hearth, adds charm to the carpeted living space, and sliding doors connect to a big paved patio overlooking the back garden. Big windows flood each bedroom with natural light, maximising ventilation and enhancing the sense of space. A bathroom with a corner framedglass shower, separate bath and modern, two-door vanity with drawer space is convenient for the three bedrooms. The home comes with reversecycle airconditioning and is on an 807sqm block close to beach and other amenities. ■

According to Jones Ballard Property Group, weekly rents had not been regularly reviewed by a private landlord for their property on Labouchere Road, South Perth, with the property being leased for $400 per week, when Jones Ballard took over the management of the property. After a review by Jones Ballard, the property was re-leased for $470 per week, meaning the property will now generate

over $3600 in additional rental income during the coming year. Jones Ballard operations manager Cassandra Mason said the company leased a record 40 properties during February and had already leased more than 20 this month. “This high demand for rental properties has meant that our rental vacancy rate has fallen to 2.9 per cent and there is now an upward pressure on rents,’’ she said. “Jones Ballard regularly reviews the weekly rents of the properties we manage and current reviews are resulting in average weekly rents rising between $10 to $20.”

Ms Mason said if landlords did not undertake regular rental reviews, they could be missing out on thousands of dollars in rent each year. “Many private landlords, such as the one on Labouchere Road, very often do not have the time or experience to review and re-set weekly rents in contrast to landlords who use the services of property management companies,’’ she said. “With weekly rents now rising in Perth, this regular review of weekly rents is now paramount to boosting their annual cash flow.” ■

Compact and comprehensive Karrinyup homes are in a great location and ooze luxury inside and out. By COURTNEY NOTTE BUILT to the highest standard by Abode Developments, 10A and 10B Burroughs Road offer location, lifestyle and luxury. The new houses are shining examples of what can be achieved with compact, modern designs and are positioned opposite parklands and close to Karrinyup Shopping Centre. The façade of each house is distinctive and modern, with sandstone feature walls and polycarbonate doors to the remotecontrolled double garages. Form and function meet in the three-bedroom, two-bathroom houses, for a quality finish and stylish presentation. Timber entry doors make a statement before you step into the houses. Tasmanian oak flooring extends throughout the interior and meets timber decking in the alfresco area under the main roof, for seamless continuity between the indoor and outdoor living and entertaining areas. Sliding doors connect the living areas to the deck, which has downlights and overlooks a grassed area and native border gardens. A light, sophisticated colour scheme enhances the sense of space in the central open-plan zone that comprises the kitchen,

casual meals area and family room. Caesarstone bench tops, glass splashbacks, an island bench and stainless steel Blanco appliances, such as a rangehood, dishwasher, electric oven and gas cooktop, feature in the galley-style kitchen. A glass panel door here connects to the outdoor area for ease of entertaining. For uniformity, Caesarstone has also been used in the laundry. A wall recess with feature lighting is a handy nook for home entertainment equipment. A second glass panel door leads to the minor hallway, from where the bedrooms and bathrooms branch. A mosaic tile panel in the shower is an eye-catching detail in the shared bathroom. This wet area also has a separate bath and a two-door vanity with a square inset basin. The ensuite has identical tiling, and also features a twin vanity unit with drawer and cupboard space and a big frameless mirror above it. The front house has gated access to this courtyard, for privacy and security. Extras include split-system airconditioning, reticulated gardens, an alarm system and a linen press. ■
