park focus of stylish community

This is one of a group in a terrace of stylish modern townhouses built by APG Homes around a central community park in Atwell.

The estate is being built in three stages. This townhouse is in stage 2 on the north side of the crescent.

A third stage is planned for the west side of the crescent, completing the semi-circle of houses in this neat estate popular with young families and older couples downsizing.

They are bound together as a community around a park with barbecues and recreational facilities. The homes provide low-maintenance options and the park a lifestyle outlook.

This two-storey home is occupied by a young family and has a downstairs open-plan living area opening on to a rear courtyard.

The kitchen is the hub of the home with all the benches, including an island bench, fitted with Caesarstone tops. The appliances include a 900mmunder bench oven and a 900mmhotplate. The range hood is set into a bank of overhead cabinets providing extra storage to complement the welter of under bench storage areas. There is also an appliance cupboard and pantry.

The laundry is to the rear of this kitchen.

Upstairs, the main suite is at the front, featuring double sliding glass doors which open on to a secluded balcony overlooking the picturesque - community park. This main bedroom has a private ensuite bathroom and walk-in robe.

The two family bedrooms are to the rear overlooking the courtyard. They share a centrally placed bathroom.

The homes all have a green focus using heat pump storage hot water systems and are well insulated.

The house comes complete with everything an owner needs in a modern home including telephone, a security system, air-conditioning and garden reticulation.

It is a turnkey package - move your furniture in and put on the kettle and you are home - nothing more to do.

A double garage is reached via a rear back lane.

The home was an entry in the 2013 HIA Perth Housing Awards in the small lot housing $200,001 to $350,000 and spec homes $350,001 to $500,000 categories. For inquiries phone APG Homes on 9208 9000.
