1 Amphion Place, LEEMING WA 6149
Live, Love, Leeming
THERE’S a touch of a pretty English cottage about this mellow brick home on Amphion Place, Leeming, with its trim hedging and wide sweep of lawn out to the street.
Built in the 80s it was extended to create a spacious home for a growing family, when the owners moved in 17 years ago
The result is a huge lounge and matching living/dining/kitchen area that forms the heart of the abode.
With little ones to keep an eye on the owners made sure the kitchen had an eagle-eye vantage, whether of the yard from the large windows over the sink and preparation area, or the covered patio off the adjacent double garage.
The kitchen’s lovely soft-grey and white tiles contrast against a heap of crisp white cupboards, including a floor-to-ceiling pantry, while black bench tops add an attractive contrast.
As the kids grew the open plan became a de facto study, a space shared by the whole family. “This is the centre of the home,” the owner says.
Down time is spent in the sprawling lounge, with its massive street facing windows: “We love the sun coming in and the kids curl up in the lounge reading.”
Large family gatherings are no problem with a spacious covered patio forming an L-shape, with a barbeque area off the kitchen and a sitting area, where the kids’ sandpit has been turned into a fire pit, with a massive steel fire box.
Sitting on 702sqm there’s a sweep of lawn for a round of cricket, and a leafy garden shaded by a mature trees.
There’s a great separation of the three bedrooms, which are closed off from the living areas by attractive french doors. Cleverly the second bathroom has double sinks to avoid arguments in the morning rush. One bedroom is currently a study but could easily turned into a fourth bedroom.
The spacious main bedroom has a walk-in-robe, and a generous en suite with double vanity, floor-to-ceiling white tiles and attractive oatmeal coloured travertine on the floor. The home’s reverse cycle air conditioning can be isolated to individual areas as needed.
This lovely family home is centrally located with the local primary school in walking distance and the Bull Creek Shopping Centre a mere five minutes by car.
