Apartments set the right scene Luxury in the heart of West Perth draws the buyers. By CARMELLE WILKINSON IMAGINE living in the heart of West Perth. Now imagine living in a plush new apartment on Malcolm Street, just minutes to Kings Park and all the fabulous cafes, restaurants and shopping in West Perth, Subiaco and the CBD. The newly completed Scene Apartments in West Perth are a must-see for buyers wanting the very best in inner-city living. With sweeping views of Kings Park and the twinkling night lights of the CBD as a dramatic backdrop, what more could you want? Sprawled over eight levels, Scene Apartments has 36 one and two-bedroom apartments and six two-level penthouses. Designed by Gresley Abas Architects, the apartments range in size from 54sqm to 138sqm and have up to 34sqm of additional courtyard or balcony space. Attention to detail is reflected throughout the apartments, which have stone or marble bench tops, stainless steel appliances including high quality European options, glass splashbacks, tiled or timber flooring, semi-frameless or frameless shower screens, ceramic or stone tiling, quality floor coverings and split system or ducted airconditioning.

Steven Currie, director of Caporn Young, said the two-storey penthouses provided an attractive proposition for buyers looking for an apartment with a difference. “There is growing demand from the market for two-level apartments because it provides a clear distinction between your entertaining areas and bedrooms, plus no one can dispute the appeal of having panoramic river and city views from both levels,” he said. Peter Gianoli, Managing Director of Allegro Realty, said the apartments had attracted the attention of astute buyers and the location was proving to be a strong drawcard. “The west end of Perth has always been in high demand because it is a short stroll to the city centre and everything you need is on your doorstep including the river, high end shopping, restaurants, cafes and more,” he said. “A brand new apartment of this standard in this location priced from just $845,000 is definitely capturing the attention of buyers.” Two display apartments are open for viewing daily from 12.30pm to 1.30pm. Inquiries to Steven Currie from Caporn Young on 0413 984 569 or to Allegro Realty on 9221 3674. ■

As interest rates rise, top end sellers must focus on price and presentation

Enjoy sweeping views of Kings Park and the CBD from Scene Apartments.

Cash in on hot bargains during summer As top end feels pinch of interest rates, there are properties to be had for under replacement value AS the temperature rises, so too will the number of listings along our coast. With the number of properties increasing, CEO of The Peard Real Estate Group Peter Peard said summer was the perfect time to consider buying a top executive home in a coastal suburb for a desirable price. Mr Peard said the group currently had a number of executive homes priced well above $2 million, which could be purchased for up to $1 million below their replacement value. “In some selective suburbs, a number of higher priced properties can even be purchased for up to $1.5 million below their replacement value,’’ he said. “We found that the top end of the coastal property market has been hit hard by rising

interest rates and the uncertainty caused by the proposed Federal Government mining tax, and slower immigration rates has also impacted the top end of the coastal property market. “For astute property buyers, the best value for money are properties priced above $2 million in the northern coastal area stretching from Trigg to Mindarie.” Mr Peard said that with building costs expected to rise strongly during the next two years due to the resources boom, these higher priced homes offered excellent value for money. “Once the real estate market rebounds, these higher priced properties are primed for the greatest capital growth,’’ he said. “Properites along this stretch of coastline

Selling tips in a buyers’ market

have historically delivered property owners high rates of capital growth over the long term. “In suburbs such as Hillarys and Sorrento, the median price of a home on average as increased by more than 10 per cent on average annually over the last decade.” Jones Ballard Property Group director Shaun Yeo said Scarborough was another strong performer, with the median price of a home rising by 14.6 per cent to $779,000 during the past year. Mr Yeo said Australians’ love affair with the water was driving factor in drawing people to live along our coast. Mr Peard said buyers should take advantage of a short-term lull in the northern coastal property market to achieve long term gains. ■

WITH interest rates on the rise, price, presentation and promotion are key factors in selling your home quickly and for the right price in today’s market. According to Richard Young, principal of Caporn Young Estate Agents, sellers needed to focus on these three key factors especially if the property is in the top end of the market. “With some banks now increasing their interest rates by nearly 0.5 per cent, buyers will be even more selective when buying homes priced above $1 million,’’ he said. “The current median price of a home in the western suburbs is now around $1.3 million and additional funding costs will make buyers take out larger home loans to seek even better value for money when choosing a home.” Mr Young said even if a property was marketed to its full potential and only slightly overpriced, the owner would find great difficulty in finding a buyer. “Overall, we expect that it will take a few months for the market to digest this recent rise in interest rates,’’ he said. “However, by early 2011 when the upswing in the local economy gains strength, buyers will take a more positive outlook to the property market and take advantage of very competitive house prices especially for properties priced above $1million. “The property market in the western suburbs has under performed during recent years relative to long-term annual growth rates which are around 12 per cent.” Mr Young said major improvements in the economy driven by the predicted second resources boom should see an upward market correction in these property values in the median term. ■

WITH landscaped surrounds by entrepreneur David Bianchi, and a distinct Balinese feel, this North Fremantle home is a resort-like sanctuary. The multi-level home has never been lived in, and features exquisite attention to detail, from bespoke bronze address placards to cleverly illuminated garden beds, and the finest of marble finishes throughout the interior. The home facesdue north. Bianchi has converted a thousand-litre Indian rice cooker into a stunning fish pond, which is a highlight of the gardens, amid a soaring palm tree and immaculate hedges. Solid double timber doors open into a grand entrance hall with a floor to ceiling glass void capturing the magnificent outdoor vista. The living area is to the left of the entrance with a gas log fire and french doors opening out to a terrace. Stainless-steel appliances includ-




Curtain raised on finishing touches A period home with an overgrown yard and a chook pen has been stunningly tranformed inside and out, writes JANE EVANS OVER 15 years, the owners of this Cottesloe period home carried out a series of renovations to modernise the property and its surrounds to suit their growing family and busier lifestyles. Now that they have finished, they leave behind a beautiful home ready for the next family to move in and enjoy completely as is. Once an overgrown yard with a chook pen, now a split-level stunningly landscaped garden by award-winning Janine Mendel from Cultivart, is at the core of the home, with a modern extension to the home designed around it. “I absolutely love the garden,” said one owner. “Even when you’re inside, you can still enjoy it.” The owners have seamlessly blended the old with the new, combining period details in the front of the home with contemporary ensuites, timber architraves and loads of glass to take in their gorgeous garden. White plantation shutters and bleached jarrah floorboards flow throughout and are complemented by rustic, stripped-back timber doors from the original house, which was built in 1925.

The entry flows in to a formal dining room with an open fireplace (in working order) and decorative ceilings. Behind this, a country-style kitchen overlooks a sunken living area with french doors opening out to the limestone and brick-paved gardens. Bedrooms run along both sides of the central living areas, and two of them are connected via a beautiful semi ensuite, ideal for children close in age or a teenager who wants to use one as a study and the other for sleeping. The master bedroom occupies its own wing which can be completely shut off from the rest of the house and is a sanctuary in itself with french doors opening out to the garden. “One of pleasures in life is to open all the doors and sit in bed on a Saturday morning looking out at my beautiful garden.” said the owner. The home is on a 645sqm block and has a garage and studio loft at the rear of the property. ■

Charm and chic This 1940s bungalow in Nedlands was given a total makeover and a stylish, functional home has emerged, writes JANE EVANS ONCE a circa 1940s bungalow, this Nedlands home has been totally transformed. Instead of knocking it down, the owners decided to create a practical family home with modern conveniences and a touch of old world charm. The sophisticated grey facade is framed by neat lawns and tropical plants, giving it a contemporary edge. French windows add character. The interiors are cosy and inviting in the original part of the house, while the rear extension features a contemporary open floor plan.

An elegant formal lounge and dining with textured white walls and an open fireplace flank the entrance.The combined kitchen and casual living areas are ultra modern with high ceilings, a mosaic tiled splashback, stainless steel appliances and a contemporary breakfast bar. Downlights create a warm ambience. A scullery adjacent to the kitchen keeps unsightly cooking mess out of view. The extension opens out to an alfresco deck that overlooks a large swimming pool, children’s cubby house and separate cabana with a bar, perfect for family gatherings.

The Nedlands home has four spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms. Clever separation of living areas ensures each family member has their own space. Additional features include reverse cycle air conditioning, granite bench tops, high ceilings, timber floors, Smeg appliances, architectural fixtures, fittings and a wine cellar. This well located home is a short walk from Windsor Cinema, public transport and Captain Stirling shopping centre and is close to the river, Princess Road and Claremont shopping precinct. ■

Added value at every turn Two titles issued and owner could subdivide at later date, reports TANYA MACNAUGHTON SWEETLY scented floral fragrances from the cottage-style garden greet you upon entering through the double driveway gates of this special Mt Pleasant property. Not only does the two-storey home feature all the character you would expect of a 1937-built house, but also has a 1012sqm block size for possible development. The two titles have already been issued, which would enable the new owner to either sell the rear block or develop at a future date. The residence also had extensions added during the late 1990s. The home has all the features expected of the era, from jarrah floorboards and matching doorframes to a staircase banister, high ornate ceilings, elegant ceiling roses

and picture rails. The master bedroom is towards the front of the house and has an ensuite with slate flooring, timber vanity cabinets, a shower and walkin robe. There are two generously sized minor bedrooms on this ground floor that have an alternative use as a study or music room. Central to the home is the huge country-style kitchen with slate floors, high raked ceiling, granite counters, dishwasher, induction cooktop and enough space for a good-sized table. There is a separate dining room with fireplace. The kitchen overlooks the cosy lower family room, also with a raked ceiling, slow combustion heating and

french doors out to the back patio. Markers have been set in place to see the line for possible subdivision. The rear block would include the scenic garden where the lawn is in the shape of a violin (the current owner is a music teacher). The first floor is comprised of two more double-sized minor bedrooms with built-in robes, in addition to a living room with fireplace. Further benefits of the property include a double tandem parking carport, ducted airconditioning and a whole lot of class. ■

Colwyn set to turn 100 in style Stunning result to award-winning renovation by top heritage architect, reports JANE EVANS BUILT for one of the Bunning brothers in 1911, Colwyn is something of a local landmark. The imposing, Federation Queen Anne residence built for English immigrant and timber merchant Arthur and his wife Evelyn, recently underwent a massive refurbishment. The current owners, only the fourth vendors, purchased the iconic but rather dilapidated Victoria Avenue property four years ago with the intention of restoring it. A multi-million dollar, award-winning renovation by renowned heritage architect Ian Hock-

ing has resulted in a striking composition of period detailing and contemporary elegance. The Claremont property was joint winner of the Conservation and/or Interpretation of a Place on the State Register of Heritage Places. It is a visible reminder of the Federation period residences which formerly graced the riverfront at Freshwater Bay. The substantial two-storey residence features outstanding timberwork and illustrates the highest quality of building and accommodation erected in Claremont during the period.

A grand staircase is the central showpiece of the property, which spans 1021sqm. There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The owner recalled that one of the previous owners had seven daughters, who often enjoyed dances around the staircase. A formal drawing or dining room is opposite a more informal living area, kitchen, pantry and meals area with french doors opening to the back yard. A resort-style swimming pool is surrounded

by immaculately landscaped gardens. A large balcony and terrace runs along both levels with beautiful river views. With their project now complete, the owners have decided to concentrate their efforts on their next restoration venture. The owners said they had enjoyed being a part of history. “We’ve had some family members of the previous owners over for scones, jam and cream and it’s just wonderful to sit around and hear the stories,” she said. ■

Rising interest rates and uncertainty of mining tax boost the number of homes on the Perth property market

THERE are no fewer than 16,000 properties currently listed for sale in Perth. According to Jones Ballard Property director Shaun Yeo, there had been a significant rise in the number of properties for sale, because of the impact of rising interest rates and the uncertainty about the mining tax. “It is now a much more challenging time for property owners wanting to sell their home,’’ he said.

“In the current housing market, selecting a real estate agent who can sell your property for its highest market value is therefore very important. “The fact is, a real estate agent plays a pivotal role in the marketing of a home and the price negotiation process with potential homebuyers.” He said Jones Ballard found that, on average, most sellers invite three or four real estate agents to make an appraisal of

Shaun Yeo

their property before making a decision on who they will select to market the property. “It is an unfortunate

fact that real estate agents tend to rank next to politicians and used car sales people when it comes to opinion polls identifying the most trustworthy professions,’’ he said. “Many people select a real estate agent based on first impressions without undertaking any thorough research of the performance of the agent and their ability to deliver what they are promising.” ■

Older homes in affordable suburbs represent best value for capital growth ASTUTE first-time buyers wanting to achieve significant capital growth over the next few years should target older homes. According to O’Rourke Realty Investments principal Rory O’Rourke, affordable suburbs relatively close to the city, river or ocean were the best options, such as Craigie, Beldon, Heathridge, Warwick, Greenwood,Westminster, Queens Park, Cannington, Spearwood and

parts of Rockingham.“First home buyers should target homes in these areas that have minimum renovations so they are buying the home as close to land value as possible. “Land values are the key driver of property values and when land becomes scarcer, properties with a higher underlying land value increase the most,” he said. “Astute first-home property buyers should therefore focus on

buying an older home that offers the potential for subdivision.” Over the past 40 years, Mr O’Rourke had seen the WA property market go through up and down swings. “First-home buyers, who purchase now, will achieve significant capital growth over the next 40 years because the massive investment in our resources sector will last for several decades.” Mr O’Rourke said there were

about 16,000 properties for sale in Perth and the vendors were happy to negotiate. “ I believe first-home buyers should focus on the land content of the property before making a decision to buy,’’ he said. Mr O’Rourke said that, as a general rule, investors should purchase older home sites where the land value is more than 75 per cent of the total purchase price of the property. ■

Furniture adds the finishing touch Contempo Collection range a winner, reports CARMELLE WILKINSON PERTH has one of the best climates for outdoor living, and what better way to enjoy this great weather than with some stylish and elegant furniture. WA’s most exclusive furniture store Contempo Collection has just released a new range of exquisite Italian outdoor furniture, including sun beds, tables, chairs and luxurious lounges. Available in a wide variety of styles, texture and comfort, the collection is sure to complement any outdoor space, from apartment balconies and quaint terraces to grand back yards and stunning designer gardens. Quality outdoor furniture adds per-

sonality to your home and creates a stylish space where you can unwind after a long day and enjoy your surrounds. Contempo owner Jonathon Bull said it was important to look at the space you are working with and find the best way to relax in it. “The aim is to create a room or space outside that makes you feel at ease,” he said. “Relaxing for some might be in a lounging or sun bathing area, for others, an area to socialise and talk with their family.” Jonathon said simple additions and adjustments such as creating the illusion of dimensions and perimeter in an empty space, adding soft furnishings such as a few cushions to your outdoor setting, or a folding umbrella, can make a space enticing and beautiful. Contempo brings some of the best

designs in the world to Perth, including top furniture designers and brands from Europe like Roberti and Bontempi. Every range is 100 per cent exclusive to WA, ensuring you will not find it anywhere else. The furniture store also specialises
