Country allure, contemporary heart | The West Australian

Walking up the wooden steps to the wide front verandah of the Atherton by Ross Squire Homes feels like a journey to a different time, with the elevation presenting a stunning traditional Queenslander aesthetic.

Upon entering the house, however, the modern world instantly shows itself and is presented in an equally impeccable fashion.

Throughout the interior, various textures and styles are used to draw the eye and communicate a vibrancy that seems worlds away from its more formal outer shell, but it’s a juxtaposition that feels comfortable and natural.

Ross Squire Homes General Manager Steve Grehan said the use of different textures provided a contemporary twist, and combining the old with the new gave the home broader appeal.

“The front elevation is certainly very striking, and I think it will capture the attention of a number of people,” he said. “Internally, it’s far more modern. We’ve used feature wall panelling and glass, among other things, to good effect.”

This effect is felt as soon as you walk in, with a designated office featuring a monochrome wall on one side of the entry and a theatre sporting said feature panelled wall on the other.

Moving through the home brings the open-plan family area into view. Natural light floods this space while multiple windows and doors provide an effortless connection with the outside.

The kitchen overlooks this zone and includes marble tiling on the splashback, a large island bench, a scullery and a walk-in pantry to easily combine style with functionality.

Mr Grehan said the kitchen was his favourite aspect of the display because of the way it worked within the home.

“I like the access and openness to the living areas,” he said. “With the scullery and main kitchen sink pushed off to the side, it provides a very clear working space so people can sit and chat without any clutter around them.”

A long corridor leads to the three secondary bedrooms, while the master bedroom, complete with an ensuite and a large walk-in robe, enjoys its own position on the other side of the home, creating excellent separation between the sleeping quarters.

The Atherton is located in Greenmount and is open for viewing on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 12.30-4.30pm.
