"Ormesby" - Enchanting Grand Federation Home
The years have passed quietly in the private beauty of this exquisite property. Behind an understated low wall and a screen of mature trees and shrubs, Ormesby is a hidden treasure that has only improved with age.
Continually occupied since it was built in 1907, the imposing federation bungalow and grounds have been meticulously maintained and preserved to the highest standards so that original floors, high ornate ceilings and cornices, magnificent leadlight windows and fireplaces are as beautiful as they ever were.
But Ormesby also has that intangible something that gives the home the luxurious sense of ease and comfort that money cannot buy.
Upholstered bay window seats, an ingle nook, rooms with cosy corners, thoughtfully placed armchairs, a profusion of natural light from big windows and the wide, shady verandahs that almost surround the house provide many enticing places to enjoy. Relax, read, doze or entertain friends with a bottle of wine selected from your own basement wine cellar. No matter the time of day or season of the year, indoors or alfresco, this wonderful light and bright home has exactly the right spot to enjoy every minute.
A much later addition to the original footprint is an enormous, era compatible family living room with French doors that open onto the south verandah and terrace. Complementing this area is the new mosaic lined striking lap pool with direct access to the rear bathroom and shower.
The bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and all the traditional bathrooms complement the historical integrity of the home.
The kitchen, with an Aga in one corner, is modern and efficient, with the essential granite-topped island bench and lots of dazzling white cupboards.
The present owners, on acquiring the home twenty years ago, added a whole new dimension by creating a loft suite in the existing roof space and then, as a spectacular bonus, crowning it with a show-stopping belvedere.
A new staircase was built in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright. Set off to one side of the ground floor hallway, the clean lines of the staircase blend perfectly with its’ surroundings. Upstairs, the loft suite with multiple roof windows, is elegant, spacious and versatile – ideal for a studio, teenagers or guests.
Because Bindaring Parade is already elevated, the belvedere (Italian for ‘fair view’) is a glass tower with magnificent 360-degree views including east across the Swan River and a vista to the west with a glimpse of the ocean and setting sun.
Neither words nor photographs can capture the magic of Ormesby. Acknowledged as one of the leading homes in the incomparable clifftop location between Claremont and Peppermint Grove, it has a charm that is felt rather than seen.
Within walking distance to some of Perth’s best schools and a 5-minute drive to the famous Cottesloe Beach, the Indian Ocean, and Claremont Quarter, Perth’s most prestigious shopping hub.
There is no patina of time, just a smiling sense of history that is alive and well in today’s busy world.
