Restored and Future-Proof: Queens Home, Perth, by Cambuild

Restored and Future Proof Queens Home by Cambuild Perth 20


The approach to the renovation of this four-story house can best be described as “tender loving care”: the owner wanted to restore and refurbish the home, while maintaining its original character — and making it “future proof.” That’s when Perth luxury home builders Cambuild stepped in. Polished wood floors, tuck-pointed brickwork, and pristine white walls form the backdrop for a contemporary palette; from its welcoming wide stone front walk, trimmed with contrasting brick border and native flora, through the veranda and into the front door, this red-brick wonder exudes charm. Indoor/outdoor living is easy with sliding glass doors that readily open the space between living room and alfresco dining area; skylights augment the recessed fixtures and their subtle illumination throughout, while central air conditioning keeps the house comfortable year-round.


Abundance is the keynote here: the house includes not one, but two gourmet kitchens, both with eat-in islands and both brimming with cabinet space in clean, uncluttered lines. Note the exquisite moldings and arches in doorways and corridors; this mix of vintage detail and the modern lines of low-slung couches, contemporary dining table and chairs, and clever finishes make for an unbeatably homey, welcoming ambience. Up the angled stairway, restful bedrooms beckon; a rose-window stained-glass accent and carved fireplace in one, a plush rug and chaise by the window in another…and the spacious en-suite baths are studies in serenity, from sand-colored marble floors to roomy showers and soaking tubs. Indoors and out, this Queens home is a place where you’ll want to linger — restored with care by Cambuild.
