Pettit+Sevitt architecture is renowned for designs with efficient use of space, natural light and sympathy with the surrounding landscape – their masterpiece at 29 Rafferty Street in Chapman is no exception.

Offering clever split-level design over three levels, this four-bedroom plus study, two-bathroom home maximises its corner block location in the heart of Weston Creek.

The grand design embraces the home’s north-facing aspect, creating light-filled, open-plan living with effortless indoor-outdoor flow.

This includes floor-to-ceiling windows in the living areas, high vaulted ceilings, exposed timber beams and timber panelled walls, which lend warmth and depth to the aesthetic.

Kitchen at 29 Rafferty Street, Chapman

With quality appliances and natural stone benchtops, the renovated kitchen sits between the family room and formal dining space, overlooking one of many outdoor spaces through large windows.

A beautiful stained-glass front door beckons you in, past the formal dining room that leads to the kitchen and into the family room.

Between an adjoining family room with direct access outside and the formal dining space with impressive French doors lies the renovated kitchen, with quality appliances and natural stone benchtops.

These spaces are central to the home and overlook the sheltered outside sitting area – the perfect spot for a fire pit.

This is one of many outdoor spaces where McCann Properties principal Mark McCann says the new owners are bound to enjoy hours of al fresco dining, entertainment or relaxation in verdant surrounds, including low maintenance, sun-soaked gardens, paved areas and lawn space.

“You can have mates over to sit around a fire pit and enjoy some beverages,” he suggests.

Mark says this beautiful family home offers numerous spaces to fulfil your family’s every need.

“You can retreat with a book to the library nook off the lounge room while in winter you can sit in the sunroom, which is north facing, with a nice book and a cup of tea and just soak up the warmth.

“Or you can work peacefully from home in the separate workshop, which would also make a great studio or office.”

The four double-sized bedrooms each have built-in robes, with a spacious walk-in robe to the main bedroom.

“The bedroom sizes are very generous. Aside from the master bedroom upstairs, a wall has been removed between a couple of bedrooms, making bedroom two the size of two bedrooms.

“It’s one of the reasons this home is primed for a family with older kids – they can have a study in their own room.

“In this home, everyone can spread out and have their own space depending on what they need, but always with the ability to come back together for meals or family time.”

Tastefully renovated with high-quality finishings, both the bathroom and ensuite reflect the same design with floor-to-ceiling tiles, extensive storage and modern facilities, including a convenient clothes chute directly to the laundry.

The laundry and both bathrooms have been tastefully renovated by leading interior designers.

Custom-made, energy-efficient honeycomb pelmetted blinds are fitted throughout the home to provide all-season energy efficiency. Coupled with reverse-cycle air-conditioning units, your family can enjoy year-round comfort.

The double garage has remote access that provides a covered walkway to the family room.

“This home is on the corner of Monkman Street, which is arguably the number one street in the suburb,” Mark says.

“Chapman is a prestigious area for easy access to all the amenities.”
