HOUSE TOUR: Kensington Classic
When selecting a builder to bring their architect-designed house plans to life, the clients wanted only the best. With its reputation for building bespoke luxury homes in Perth, Riverstone Custom Homes was the obvious choice.
To create the family home of their dreams, the clients worked closely with Riverstone’s interior architect Nadia to create a customised property that is the last word in timeless elegance.
It was Riverstone’s collaborative process that most impressed the clients throughout the build: “We loved the whole process, but especially working with Nadia on the selections and interior design,” the client says.
“Nadia took our brief and came up with ideas on finishes, tiles, etc, and we loved them all. The process was easy.”
With its top-quality finishes and extremely high specification, this luxury property boasts a meticulous attention to detail, from the fireplace surrounded by built-in cabinetry in the front sitting room, to the bay window with window seat in the first-floor master suite.
Cleverly zoned for family living, the top floor of the home comprises the master suite, three minor bedrooms and bathroom, and a living area that works as a homework/study zone. A void looks down on to the ground-floor family room, creating a feeling of grandeur wherever you are in the home
On the ground floor, a traditional sitting room with fireplace features double French doors that open on to the front porch. Jarrah floorboards lead from the dramatic foyer – with its ingeniously located mud room – through to the open-plan kitchen, living and dining area.
The luxury kitchen features an island bench with stone benchtop, breakfast bar and walk-in pantry, along with top-quality European appliances. Similarly high-spec are the outdoor kitchen and alfresco area, which overlook the pool.
This elegant home’s true point of difference is the private guest suite to the rear, which boasts its own bedroom, ensuite and sitting area with garden views. Ideal for overseas guests, extended family or older children, this suite is sure to be well utilised.
With its exemplary attention to detail and luxury finishes, this is a truly elegant family home that epitomises Riverstone’s collaborative design process.
“Everyone was so easy to deal with,” the client says. “We felt we could always talk to our site supervisor or client liaison manager; any problems were looked into and dealt with.”
