This year is set to be the biggest MSWA Mega Home Lottery ever, with the lucky winner taking home a whopping $3.5 million grand prize, including $1 million in cash, a 2021 Range Rover Sport and this $2.4 million Webb & Brown-Neaves custom home.
According to Webb & Brown-Neaves Designer Damien Dickerson, the build was inspired by its Marmion location, the potential of the site and the vistas on offer.
“Located 600m from the coastline, the site offers uninterrupted views of the ocean due west, through to Hillarys Boat Harbour to the north-west,” he said.
“We drew on the beach and ocean to create a home that suits the location, but also provides something a bit different that will stand out.”
Mr Dickerson described the residence as striking and modern, encouraging a seamlessness between the occupant, the outdoors and the ocean through a constant visual connection.
“Given the home’s location, it suits an outdoor laid-back beach lifestyle,” he said. “The views of the ocean invite the occupants to get outside and take in nature.
“The ground-floor entertaining and outdoor living spaces encourage the occupants to come together and the pool is on show from all rooms within the home, encouraging its use.”
Befitting its location, a coastal colour palette was adopted, with splashes of warm neutral materials throughout, including timber battens to the front facade and timber flooring to the living rooms.
“For the front facade we opted for a modern style we like to call ‘battens up’, which utilises timber battens to create a vertical feature to the home,” Mr Dickerson said.
Upon entry, attention is immediately drawn to the resort-style pool opposite, through the large two-storey glass window void which frames the stairs and lets as much natural light as possible into the centre of the home.
“These stairs lead you to the upper-floor living spaces, where you are hit with the striking views out to the ocean,” Mr Dickerson said.
“I can imagine lounging here in the cool air on those super hot days, watching the yachts out on the ocean, or those stormy afternoons when the grey clouds roll in, sitting back and watching the lightning over the horizon.”
The kitchen and open-plan living flow together in this space, the former offering an abundance of bench space and storage. At the rear of the upper floor, the master suite provides privacy and some separation from the public realms of the home. The generously sized ensuite boasts a freestanding bath and access to a large walk-in robe.
“The minor bedrooms are located on the lower floor, along with an entertaining room adjacent to the outdoor living,” he said. “This is great for teenagers who may need their own space within the home to chill out away from the parents.”
With a flexible layout with growing families in mind, Mr Dickerson said the residence would appeal to many.
“It’s a home that will suit families at all stages of life and is able to adapt as family life changes through the years, encouraging them to come together whilst also allowing enough room to break away when needed,” he said.
Mr Dickerson considered it a pleasure to create the home.
“I encourage everyone to help support MSWA, buy a ticket and go into the running to win this beautiful home,” he said.
