'Kalamiah' an Impressive Hills'-Design Residence
House Sold - Roleystone WA
More than a home, a home built on history! This unique, light, bright, 2-storey hills’ home started its life in 1963 and has been extended since to accommodate a modern family. The residence is a fantastic example of inspiring building design featuring, appealing timber and stone elements, stain glass, a variety of floor levels and expansive, steel framed windows.
The desire for a variety of building materials, and exceptionally large windows, was to create the feeling of being close to nature; with the big picture windows offering an appealing visual connection to the surrounding greenery and the ever-changing sky.
The original cottage was constructed from Lime Silica bricks and additional stonework added to create the ‘office’ (right of the front door). George Voudouris, a significant Western Australian artist, one of many looking for a romantic life in the Hills, had his studio on the wandoo floor area of the home, now known as ‘The Studio’. The studio is a beautiful, sunny, honey-coloured workspace. Mr Voudouris was responsible for much of the attractive stonework around the property, too.
All of the bedrooms are large doubles and offer beautiful, elevated and treed outlooks through large windows. The main bedroom opens onto a generous decking – a wonderful place in which to enjoy your first morning cuppa. A ceiling fan in each bedroom, assures a quiet breeze on hot, still nights, and a powerful reverse cycle air conditioner in the central living area, is an appreciated asset to the home.
The large timber kitchen includes ample recycled Oregon timber cupboards and shelving, a walk-in pantry, double sink, dishwasher, gas cooktop, electric stove and rangehood.
There is plenty of space for family and friends to gather outside on the extensive decking, and when it’s cold, the perfectly positioned slow combustion wood burning fire at the heart of the home, gives a joyous warmth.
If you want a home that does not follow a predictable floor plan, then this may well be the home for you. The location is convenient with shopping, cafés and professional services within 2km of home, schools are only 3.9km away and it’s just 33km to Perth CBD.
