This exceptional home presents a lofty, imposing faade to Watkins Road. Its classic symmetry epitomises sophistication in this premier corner location – spacious, superbly presented and absolutely individual.
This Tuscan styled home provides a sense of timeless comfort and beauty. Thirteen-foot ceilings, classic cornices and skirtings, large rooms, very tall doors, huge windows and absolutely magnificent window treatments are the perfect setting for a completely comfortable and very beautiful living environment. A light-filled, travertine floored entry and a statement staircase, with delicious ironwork, provide the ideal setting for the extensive art collection that graces this home and sets the stage for what is to come.
The key features are space, light and exquisite style. A huge two-storey internal void is the centrepiece with one entire north-facing wall of glass overlooking the loggia, garden and swimming pool. Both formal and family living areas are flanked with a series of beautifully arched full height French doors, allowing an abundance of light into the home, with double glazing maintaining the temperature and peaceful ambience within.
The ground floor family area has a series of four French doors with glass side panels that, when opened, allow the loggia, pool and gorgeous garden to become an integral part of the interior. Casual dining extends seamlessly from the huge central kitchen workbench providing a central hub where the whole family can gather.
The formal dining and sitting room also have a set of French doors, a pair of handsome chandeliers and a large fireplace with gas fire. Off the entry is a superbly finished, very spacious study. Guests will be spoilt and more than happy in the suite on the ground floor which opens directly to the pool.
The kitchen is a work of art in itself with fumed oak cabinetry, imported directly from Italy, providing an over-abundance of storage and equipped with a full-sized oven together with all the appliances one would expect in this grand Tuscany home.
Built in to the cabinetry itself is a concealed entry to a fully equipped butler’s pantry and laundry. Sheer heaven for good looks, efficiency and making easy work of food and drink preparation!
Upstairs, with a balcony overlooking the pool, the glamorous master suite occupies the entire east wing with a fitted dressing room and a stunning 5-star bathroom with double basins and a specifically designed bath to allow for more comfortable bathing.
Also, on the upper level, the west wing has three bedrooms (two of which open onto a large terrace) and a family bathroom with separate toilet. There is also another big terrace at the northern end with separate exterior staircase, fireplace and kitchenette. A fabulous entertaining area at any time of the year.
Watkins Road is one of Perth’s most desirable river precinct addresses. It is close to the City, schools, restaurants, sporting venues, hospitals and shops. 51 Watkins is not only gorgeous but only by seeing it can you appreciate the mastery that went into creating this magnificent family home.
