BLOCK SIZE: 340 SQM 

HOME SIZE: 337 SQM 

An urban rural cottage with a private roof garden is taking shape within one of Claremont’s most picturesque streets combining heritage and modern form in a very personal way.

This quintessential 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom downsizer marries the owner’s rich heritage with the rural WA landscape in a sophisticated home that evokes all the warmth of our state’s natural environment.

It is a challenging build on a small block with the scale and proportion matching the heritage vernacular surrounding the site.

Entertaining in the home is a key consideration and driver in the design with the kitchen and scullery framing the zone and connecting to the dining and living and flowing the alfresco on the lower floor.

Relaxation can be found in the master suite, which is nestled at the base of private stairs at the rear of the home and opens to a private garden overlooking the alfresco.

Quiet contemplation and enjoyment can be found on the roof terrace that absorbs the full morning sun and provides access to a library/sitting room and ancillary accommodation for when guests or family stay.

The interior palette speaks to the architecture and is representative of the Murchison and Kalgoorlie areas with warm tones and textural elements.  The most striking is the stone cladding which frames the exterior of the home office while juxtaposing the white timber batons and glass louvres, setting the tone for what awaits inside.

Designed and built by Humphrey Homes, this is modern cottage on compact block but don’t be fooled: at its heart it is a robust, earthy abode geared for entertaining and how the owners like to live.

The home is under construction in Claremont now.  For more information or to arrange a private tour, email Dean Humphrey at dean@humphreyhomes.com.au or contact us.
