“HASTA la vista, baby,” Arnie growled in Terminator II.
The phrase has entered our lexicon as a put down, used in politics to predict electoral doom for an opponent.
But in Spanish speaking countries it simply means, “goodbye until we see each other again”.
And this lovely home on Howell Vista in Beaconsfield is well worth seeing again.
Almost brand spanking new it’s a terrific family home, close to schools, shops and the fantastic South Fremantle Sunday farmers’ market.
The low-maintenance front garden is lovely now, but will look amazing in a few weeks, once all those native plants, including a scarlet runner, begin to bloom.
But come summer you won’t be wasting precious water—nor valuable time and money—with watering.
With South Beach down the road, along with the delights of Fremantle’s CBD that’s got to be a good thing.
Energy-efficient design, solar panels and a spacious U-shape layout makes this three-bedroom/two-bathroom home (on 300sqm) ideal for today’s lifestyle.
A huge front bedroom is sem-ensuite, with a bath and separate shower.
But the main bedroom, at the rear is even larger, with floor-to-ceiling robes and double vanities in the swish ensuite.
The heart of the home is the massive open-plan living/dining/kitchen area.
The off-white tiled flooring extends out to the north-facing courtyard garden, through bank of glass doors.
High walls, a pleasant water feature and softening plantings make this a delightful spot to enjoy a little alfresco ambience almost year round–whether alone of with friends and family.
The kitchen is a huge space, with a massive island bench, topped with white caesar stone, as are all the benches.
Large windows either side of the stove flood the preparation areas with light and the voluminous pantry doubles as an appliances cupboard, with power points for all those must-have cooking gadgets.
There’s nothing to do here but arrange the furniture and move in and when friends leave, say “hasta la vista, amigo”.
