The house at 22 Bernecker St, Carina, is for sale.
THIS Carina house was built with luxury family living in mind.
Adrian Rete moved into the 22 Bernecker St house 18 months ago, after he and his wife had spent time designing the contemporary residence themselves.
The kitchen has Statuario Venato benchtops.
“My wife and I developed a design and spent countless hours on the plans before giving that to the builder,” Mr Rete said.
“During the construction we worked very closely with the builder to ensure attention to detail was achieved for our family home.”
The two-level house has a contemporary, angular exterior and a monochromatic colour scheme.
Bi-fold doors create a seamless indoor-outdoor flow.
Upon stepping inside, polished timber floorboards flow through the common areas of both levels, and the kitchen has Statuario Venato benchtops paired with matte black tapware.

This area, which is part of an open concept living space, is what Mr Rete believes is a family favourite.
“It’s the most used and it’s got the living out to the back alfresco and the garden,” he said.
“This is where we mostly live.”
The main living area is open concept.
He said in the back yard was a place his three children loved to play, although not as much since turf had been laid.
“I remember for them it was more exciting before we put the turf down.
“They got out there and played in the dirt.”
There is matte black tapware.
Mr Rete said they had also enjoyed living in the area, often going for bicycle rides at the nearby Minnippi Parkland.
The bathroom is to die for.
When asked if they would build again, Mr Rete said plans were currently up in the air, but the idea of constructing another home fit for their family appealed to them.
“It was very challenging, but it was very exciting at the same time,” Mr Rete said.
The backyard is low maintenance yet functional.
