RIVER SIDE GRANDEUR
Behind the high private screening wall and leafy facades, lies an incredibly special place of abundant beauty and magnificent detail. A delight awaits you at every turn. The house has been known as “The Bungalow”. On a massive, almost square 1,456sqm landholding it enjoys elevated river views and is only a short walk down to the ever-popular Freshwater Bay. It is also just about walking distance to our finest private schools.
Offering a total of 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms with 4 car parking with the main bedroom suite on the ground floor and the 5th bedroom being separate from the main house and working very well as either an older child’s room, Au pairs suite or a dedicated home office (its current use).
The whole residence has been modernised and is very current. The end result is a perfect blend of British Colonial with Asian fusion styling, full of features sourced by the current owners from the world over, most of which will be sold with the home. Many guests comment that it reminds them of the finest Balinese Villas with hints of the original Raffles hotel in Singapore. It is the colonial grandeur of a by-gone era that resonates strongly in every aspect. This is a rare find, even in Perth’s most prestigious leafy green Western Suburbs.
A warm ambience dominates the interiors thanks to consistent accents of cedar, bleached jarrah, iron and rich-hued granites. As the sun sets, the living areas fill with golden hues. Breezes flow through like a dream and the vastest of verandas, akin to loggias, envelope the home creating shade and privacy from all sides. A high perimeter wall, now impossible to recreate anywhere else under the new planning codes, gives absolute privacy and security to this oasis.
Bespoke over-height cedar doors and windows open every room to the divine external elements – the river views to the west, the huge central koi ponds and trickling fountains or the enormous swimming pool with lush lawns and garden surrounds. The generous rooms defined by their sheer size, soaring ceilings and intricate period features are interconnected via wide hallways. The practical layout will ensure this home will work for your family at every stage.
Incorporating the finest range of European appliances, the stylish kitchen has solid stone bench tops and glossy off-white cabinetry. There is a large island bench work space in addition to broad open benches with counter-top seating. A walk-in pantry/utilities area with space for a double-fridge and wine fridge, plus access to the below ground wine cellar, completes this functional space.
The grand master suite is smartly located on the ground floor. Incorporating wall-to-wall wardrobes plus space for a lounge and dressing table, it flows into the cedar-lined bathroom with a huge his-and-hers dressing room, oversized stone finished shower recess with luscious garden aspects via a door offering direct pool access.
Three other generous bedrooms, each with their own designated bathroom or ensuite, ensure this home will fulfil all your families accommodation requirements.
A truly world class outdoor entertaining room, awash with northern sunlight and surrounded by established trees, world-class landscaping and a large Koi pond are all in perfect symmetry to the internal areas. An idyllic, fully covered and protected outdoor room links the garage, workshop and 5th bedroom to the house and separates the Koi ponds form the pool area. This is an entertaining space that links beautifully with the main residence and is ideal for entertaining on a grand scale as much as for your family’s private gatherings.
We encourage you to view this exceptional home to fully appreciate it and then make your offer.
