SMART MODERN DESIGN
OPEN BY APPOINTMENT OVER THE AUSTRALIA DAY LONG WEEKEND
This evocative double-storey architectural creation is an exquisite blend of modern industrialism and contemporary family friendly design, balanced by the warmth of timber finishes. The result is one of the most distinguished and individual homes in the Western Suburbs.
ACCOMMODATION SUMMARY: 3 queen sized bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, huge study/second lounge/4th bedroom, spacious music room, very spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen, powder room, fantastic alfresco entertaining with outdoor kitchen, craft room/2nd study, huge under-croft garage plus workshop space and store rooms. With a Kone lift complimenting the stunning staircase which traverses the side of the light well down to the Koi pond below, it offers a faultless combination of spaces for retreat, work and play.
Set on the exclusive Dalkeith/Nedlands boarder, on a 1012m2 north facing rear block, close to Mason’s Gardens, Nedlands Golf course, the river, Perth’s best schools and Waratah Avenue, Princess and Hampton Roads villages.
Cleverly conceived by architects, Hofman and Brown and built by Gransden construction, it leaves a lasting impression on all who visit.
Beyond the solid pivot entry door, your senses will feast on walls of seemingly endless glass with sunlight streaming in every direction. Your eyes drawn to the astounding central stair-side, light-well design feature, with long Koi pond and water garden below.
Chic contemporary lines, crafted with luxurious travertine and a white-on-white colour palette sit comfortably alongside gleaming Blackbutt timber floors and solid-wood joinery, giving the home organic grounding and a sense of warmth.
Thermally and technically the home is ingenious, with sophisticated air-conditioning, security, automation and lighting control systems, ensuring your comfort and safety. It has Cat 6 wiring, insulated walls and ceilings and a 4kW solar system. One of the many benefits is its 6-star energy rating.
Visually commanding, the main room of the home, incorporating the kitchen, living and dining areas, is exposed to glorious light from the north and designed for optimum cross-ventilation. Soaring ceilings and double-glazed sliders deliver seamless integration with the outdoors.
Long stone benches, masses of storage and the best in home appliances, including Miele induction cooktop, trio of Neff ovens, Fisher + Paykel dish-drawers and Hydro Ziptap, make the all-white internal kitchen a gourmet delight.
Then there is the outdoor kitchen, a genuine second cooking and preparation space. Stainless steel and white, it includes a free-standing St George oven with 5-burner hotplates, rangehood, deep sink and dishwasher.
An entertainer’s paradise, the outdoors of this home captures the essence of quality open-air living on a grand scale which Perth is famous for. Hours of fun will be had in the enormous, solar-heated pool, while the low-maintenance, visually spectacular gardens, designed by Dig Horticulture, bring a lush eco-punch to the multiple alfresco zones.
Shafts of sunlight flood an uplifting passageway. Follow it and discover a clever craft/technology room with extensive built-ins plus a massive second living/music room. With doors and glass on two sides and opening to the rear glade of alfresco living, this exemplary space ensures this home is ready to take your family through every stage, with everyone’s needs well-catered for.
Sleep zones are divided by the central staircase but remain on the same level, offering separation yet proximity for those with younger children.
The Master bedroom suite offers easy sophistication with large dressing room filled with bespoke cabinetry and a luxurious ensuite, continuing the travertine and white theme, with every modern convenience at the touch of a button.
The two king-sized secondary bedrooms, with walls of built-ins and private garden views share the travertine finished family bathroom.
Down stairs, there is a sophisticated open-style home office and lounge area with custom-designed book shelving, enjoying ground-level views of the aquatic garden. This multi-use space, with its nearby kitchenette and full bathroom, could become a third living zone/activity room, although currently has a decidedly “man-den” vibe. A place for work, quiet conversations and at the end of the day, a relaxing retreat.
The undercroft 3-car garage and storeroom/mudroom are also from this level, in additional to the laundry of family proportions, plus walls of storage, for the ultimate in lifestyle organisation.
Breathtaking architectural features are revealed here with ease, creating a naturally-flowing, future-proof residence that is functional, timeless and which any family, looking to live within the prime Western Suburbs, would be proud to call “home”.
