Practical and stylish Mt Helena home for growing family

THOUGHTFUL design and superior materials ensure this four-bedroom, two-bathroom Mt Helena home will meet the needs of a growing family. 

Built on a 2ha block the Jaxon home includes an alfresco entertaining area, a study, three separate living areas, a swimming pool, a big shed and plenty of outdoor space to explore.

The owners said the home is a great place to raise children.

When they are young you can all congregate in the family room-kitchen as they grow while the billiard room provides a separate yet connected space for when friends come over.

When the children are teenagers the billiard room can be closed off to provide a space for a retreat. 

Outdoors there is plenty of room for building cubbies, keeping chickens and growing vegetables and the fire pit is sure to be central to many memorable parties.

The home has wide, solid jarrah floorboards throughout.

To one side of the entrance is a big study with a long wrap-around jarrah desk, which could double as a home office.

The first of three big living areas – the open family room-kitchen sits at the centre of the home. 

The family room with a built-in bar (and walk-in liquor cupboard) is an informal space, visible from the kitchen yet arranged to give a degree of division, which allows for the children to play or watch TV while dinner is being prepared. 

White cabinetry and deep granite benchtops define the functional kitchen.

A corner pantry, two utility cabinets, wide oven, induction cooktop and dishwasher make for fuss-free preparation and clean up. 

There are views to the alfresco deck from a breakfast nook, which sits between the kitchen and family room.

Behind the kitchen the billiard room is big enough for a competition-size table. 

French doors open from the billiard room, family room and the bedroom wing to the alfresco entertaining zone. 

Enclosed on three sides the alfresco area with a built-in barbecue, wok burner, fridge and pizza oven overlooks the lawn surrounded by formal gardens with a backdrop of native landscape. 

Sheltered, with room for a sofa and chairs, there will not be many days of the year when this isn’t the best place to be.

The main bedroom and three junior bedrooms are on the western side of the home and shaded by the wrap-around veranda and established citrus trees. 

The three big junior bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and there is a powder room, linen press and walk-through laundry with ample storage along the hallway of the bedroom wing. 

The big main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and spa ensuite with separate double vanities occupying one end of the wing to heighten the feeling of privacy.

Surrounded by a garden of fruit trees, ornamental shrubs and lawns, the home has a secluded, below ground swimming pool, set under shade sails.

The pool area has elevated decking and a screen of palm trees creates a private oasis for swimming, lounging and pool-side kangaroo-spotting.

With room to store a boat, a car collection and more, the big concrete-floored shed has three-phase power. 

Ducted reverse cycle air conditioning, automatic salt water pool with solar heating, spray-sealed driveway and a four-car carport all underline the practicality and effortless style embodied in this family home.
