Amazing Altador - A New Opportunity

*View By Private Appointment*
This incredible property offers a thrilling chance to take possession of an historic and stately home. ‘Altador’ was built and owned by some of Peppermint Grove’s first-generation pioneers. The grand residence sits on an enormous plot of 2466sqm, just 230m from the lapping waves of Freshwater Bay. A remarkable opportunity!

Enjoy the elegance of turn-of-the-century architecture and the extensive gardens of Altador, which has been a place of peaceful family contemplation for more than 100 years. It is surrounded by lush, mature gardens and has potential for city and river aspects.

Spectacular plans have been drawn up to create a sublime contemporary home which respects the heritage that this glorious home offers, whilst creating a magnificent modern family home that does justice to this unique and remarkable landholding in the heart of Perth’s most famous garden suburb.

You’ll be entranced by the beautiful sandstone blocks, turned verandah posts and decorative woodwork of the Queen Anne style which features on the home’s graceful façade. The interior has many beautiful original features, including a striking jarrah staircase and arched stained glass windows which bathe the entry hallway in golden light.

The massive property tapers gently to the rear from a streetscape frontage width of nearly 40m, with laneways to both the western and northern boundaries.

The original home was built by Mr J B Percy, Manager of the Union Bank, who was a well-respected banker who features in many early WA histories. In 1906 it was bought by Mr John Church, a prominent businessman and hardware merchant. He was also an avid gardener whose legacy is the wonderful mature gardens that make Altador such a lush and pleasant property.

The original home offers 4 bedrooms, 2 balconies, 2 sleep outs, lounge, dining room, kitchen (a mid-century addition), original kitchen, servant’s quarters, bathroom, laundry, tandem garage and outbuildings.

Mr Church’s gardens were designed in a time when one took the time to wander down shady paths and to contemplate in peaceful silence amidst green trees. Take a stroll down the garden path and connect with the essence of this eminently Peppermint Grove property.

Superbly situated a short stroll from the Swan River foreshore, and close to the Cottesloe shopping precinct, The Grove Library, and excellent schools including PLC and St Hilda’s. Walk to the tennis club, yacht club, Manners Hill Park and Keane’s Point Reserve. This is the lifestyle you love!
