SPRAWLING MANSION IN DRESS CIRCLE LOCATION
360 DEGREE RIVER & CITY VIEWS
At long last, for prospective buyers wishing to claim their slice of the Applecross pie this superb family home perched on triple-A land with a Duncraig Road address- is a rare opportunity not to be missed!
Refined box-hedging lining a down-lit pathway is your guide on entering the grounds of this elegant Mediterranean inspired, luxury two storey mansion. Greeted by a prominent arcade walkway, its soaring arches drawing the eye upward to exposed wooden beams of the ceiling above, provide a rustic feel to the Tuscan architecture of the home. The front entryway borders an immaculate courtyard; a fitting stage for the stone water fountain, a stunning feature that imparts a sense of tranquility to welcome visitors.
Poised with grandeur, the Jarrah-framed glass double doors open to reveal the Italian granite floors of the foyer; to one side the gently up-sweeping spiral staircase, with views on the other extending into a formal living room. Complete with ornate fireplace and distinguished dark wood coffered ceiling, the vast living area captures exquisite riverside views with doors leading out to the sunny terrace.
Central to the ground floor is the spacious guest suite with access to the exterior courtyard as well as a newly renovated bathroom, separate powder room and utility room across the hall. A bright open-plan kitchen and dining area with adjacent casual living zone all maximise the best of the natural light streaming through all north-facing windows and doors.
The gourmet kitchen doesn’t disappoint as you’re met with quiet sophistication and elegant simplicity, starting with imported Italian ceramic floors and modern stainless steel appliances to the generous island which doubles as breakfast bar, beautifully finished in Italian granite and enhanced with clever task and accent lighting.
The northern aspect of the house with all rooms opening onto the expansive balcony, offers the best of both worlds. Find secluded pockets ideal for a sun-lounge or intimate dining under the stars and when it’s time for entertaining large-scale functions -the terrace comes alive- skirting the outdoor pavilion; a kitchen and dining space fully enclosed by floor-to-ceiling concertina glass doors.
A well-appointed later addition now seemingly pivotal to our WA lifestyle, the pavilion and both built-in executive gas barbeque and wood-fired outdoor oven allow for even more entertaining possibilities and family time together. Of course, who could refuse those valuable moments whilst soaking up breathtaking Swan River views across to Kings Park, Crawley and Perth’s cityscape beyond.
Upstairs, the second storey landing reveals exquisite polished parquetry floors leading to all five bedrooms; including the Master suite. Exuding comfort, the plush master bedroom includes a dressing room and updated ensuite with impressive jetted tub, making it an ideal retreat with private balcony overlooking priceless panoramic views. With three more bathrooms, the second level comprises a further four bedrooms with custom built-in wardrobes and display niches, all with door access to a shared balcony.
Taking advantage of this prestigious hill-top location, the inclusion of a third level observation tower spanning 360 degree views is a unique draw-card. Fusing elements of classic European styling with modern comforts in family-friendly spaces, the house was built by the current owners and today is true testament to a life of timeless style. Updates and enhancements along the way have ensured this well-designed family home party to Perth’s dress circle, has remained relevant, accessible and impeccably maintained whilst holding true to that Old-world charm.
