Apart from the obvious façade of the house the first feature one notices here is the gorgeous crafted entrance and the smart gardens that surround the structure. A modern pool and tennis court sit next to one another and a series of tall trees on the outside provide privacy in natural manner. On the inside white is the color of choice in different rooms with natural light flooding in to add to the brightness and sense of freshness.
The neutral backdrop allows light to spread throughout the residence evenly and shapes a cheerful setting with the sight of the ocean in the distance stealing the spotlight.

A Thorp Design creation the new interior of this seemingly regal house is all about blending the old and the new in a balanced and refreshingly innovative fashion. The result is impressive in the way it makes an otherwise overwhelmingly lavish setting seem cozy and even ‘private’.
The 1950’s home now hosts a family with two teenage twins and its ageing structure could no longer meet the demands of their fast-paced life. The new interior completely moves away from the original as the additions and changes to the East Fremantle home turn the lower level into a vibrant and inviting social zone.
Décor in the living area dining room and the game room is much more classic in its appeal with curtains that add flowery pattern and plenty of color energizing the spaces. One can see a lovely transition of styles here even as the modern woodsy kitchen becomes the new heart and soul of this timeless residence.
But the true showstopper of this Vietnamese residence is undoubtedly the dashing with a glass railing that blends minimalism with textural charm and a hint of industrial panache. Social zones outside are carefully integrated with the rooms inside and a flood of natural light ensures there is no dull corner inside this beautiful home.
