For those who appreciate the finer things in life, building a new custom home is an opportunity to create a sophisticated property that provides the ultimate balance between comfort and style.
Of course, there are many ways to achieve this, and as Perth’s premier luxury home builders we’ve seen many of them. From high stud ceilings to beautiful wooden floors and marble-framed kitchens, the possibilities are nearly limitless when it comes to designing a classy abode.
You really are only limited by your imagination, but to help get your creative juices flowing, we’ve put together three features we think every luxury custom home should have:
1. Swimming pool
A staple in every outstanding home, a swimming pool is the number one way to cool off in the hot Western Australian summers, when temperatures often exceed the 40 degrees-Celsius mark. In fact, Perth has the highest rate of swimming pools in the country, with 18 per cent of the city’s residents living in a home with a pool, according to research from Roy Morgan.
Want to take things to the next level? Infinity pools, underwater lighting and waterfalls offer a beautiful finishing touch and can help your home stand out even more.
2. Alfresco dining area
Open, sprawling spaces are another hallmark of luxury homes in Perth, and there’s arguably no better way to achieve this look than by enhancing your indoor-outdoor flow.
Alfresco dining areas embody this concept. Whether you simply place some tastefully-designed furniture in the garden or fully commit to the idea with a dedicated courtyard and outdoor fireplace, there’s no denying there’s something special about sitting down to a meal outdoors.
3. Theatre room
As a nation, we love our movies. In fact, in 2011 the Australian Bureau of Statistics found that 67 per cent of people over age of 15 had visited the cinema at least once in the past 12 months.
What’s better than watching the latest blockbuster on the big screen? Doing so from the comfort of your very own home. Advances in technology have made this an affordable option for many home buyers, and now there’s a plethora of visual and audio options available for media lovers.
