Ok, we’re practically a cliche of ourselves at this point. Predictable, even! “We’re simply obsessed with this home and its mid century style…”

But when it comes to a home like this, can you really blame us?

Built in 2019 and designed by award-winning Perth architect Suzanne Hunt, 8 Korel Gardens combines a mid century-inspired aesthetic with a thoroughly contemporary sense of scale and functionality.

Earning the moniker “littleBIG House”, the home’s street frontage (only 100m from the beach!) belies the rather lavish scale of the interior and rear – compounded by the intimate scale of the entryway, flanked by floral breeze blocks and timber cladding.

Inside, a double-height atrium leads into an open plan living, dining and kitchen. Vast sliding doors open up both sides of this space to lush gardens and a Japanese-style courtyard. The sunken lounge gives an extra retro flavour – amplified by the exposed longline brick feature walls.

Outside, the garden is unmistakably contemporary. A spacious alfresco connects directly to the kitchen via a breakfast bar – and provides extra easy access for all those warm summer nights entertaining!

While you’ll no doubt be spending mornings at the beach (less than a five minute walk away), once the sea breeze picks up you can head home for a relaxing afternoon float in the pool.

Upstairs, a row of four bedrooms is capped by the primary suite – a leafy hideaway overlooking the pool and garden, the connecting balcony is shrouded with greenery. Who needs a holiday?!
