Established Family Home in a Prized Setting
This is an exceptional large home with generous proportions and outstanding amenity. The layout lends itself to grand indoor and outdoor entertaining when social distancing rules allow. Or if necessary, can provide spacious and safe five-star resort style comfort with appealing stay-at-home features for the whole family. Featuring an outdoor kitchen and lounge area by the pool, fully equipped home theatre, spacious home office with meeting space, multiple living areas, and a self-contained apartment which meets quarantine rules.
Lush landscaping and broad sweeping terraces enhance the French provincial charm of this stately residence located on a sprawling corner block among Perth’s finest blue-chip properties.
This spacious five bedroom, five bathroom family home features both modern amenities and architectural character in a fantastic location. The porcelain-tiled entrance and hardwood floors throughout displays refinement, especially evident in the beautiful formal dining and lounge areas.
A contemporary, light-bathed open-plan living, kitchen and family dining area is the heart of the home. The massive Hampton’s-style kitchen is meticulously appointed for convenience and grand entertaining. French oak flooring is offset by white two pack finished cabinetry, a trio of oversized cylindrical ceiling lamps and a generous oak and marble island bench.
Miele appliances, comprising induction cook-top, twin oven (one steam), integrated fridge/freezer, espresso machine, and dishwasher seamlessly combine with the abundant soft-closing drawers and cupboards, with Caesar-stone benchtops to complete this beautifully fitted kitchen. A unique rear scullery with caterer access from outside, includes open larder, full-size Vintec wine fridge, Miele dishwasher and custom made study nook.
Many grand celebrations, cocktail soirees and garden parties have taken place in these lavish spaces which highlight a glistening salt-water pool (with spa), oversized Mediterranean terracotta pots and elegant landscaping.
A dramatic double-storey mirrored entry foyer frames a wide spiral staircase with wrought-iron detail and views to the formal lounge and dining rooms.
Traditional cornicing, high ceilings, gas fireplaces, heavy crushed silk drapes and striking crystal chandeliers provide an air of aristocracy and elegance throughout.
A poolside alfresco, with timber vaulted ceiling (and fan) is equipped with barbecue, fridge and kitchenette. An outdoor bathroom adjoins for convenience.
The grand guest bedroom with ensuite and French doors opens onto the wonderful front garden. The generous laundry with airing racks and laundry chute (plus access to a drying court), a plush, cashmere-velvet-clad theatre room and tastefully styled powder room complete this floor.
Upstairs, the spacious oak lined study has generous storage cabinet work and highlights dark wood parquetry flooring (with brass inlay details) and balcony access.
The over-sized master suite, with walk-in-robe, double vanity (with bath) and American Oak flooring is a tranquil respite. Moving on through a cosy lounge room and shared bathroom (with bath) there are two more bedrooms, each with built-in-robes. One has an adjoining lounge/study to accommodate a sofa and desk, or an extra bed.
The home also incorporates a stylishly appointed, spacious one-bed/one-bath self-contained apartment with hardwood flooring, air-conditioning and separate side-entry.
