Architect Designed Beachside Sanctuary
Residing in coveted North Cottesloe and incredibly close to the ocean, 239 Broome St is an iconic, world classic residence. Designed by award winning Sydney architect Michelle Orszaczky of Clayton Orszaczky, together with landscape design by William Dangar of Sydney based Dangar Smith Barin, this home is incredibly special.
Crafted from recycled brick, clad in rough-hewn cedar and New Guinea Rosewood, and beautifully integrated within its landscape, this house was designed to maximise light and create seamless connections between the house and surrounding gardens.
The home embraces a central north facing courtyard that spirals natural light into both floors. Spectacular high raked ceilings, white walls and vast expanses of glass enhance the interplay of light and space.
The versatile floorplan offers supreme functionality and inspired separation of space, bringing family together for entertaining and relaxing, yet providing distinct spaces for study, sleep and even some time alone.
The magnificently appointed kitchen features an impressive 6m Carrara marble topped island, freestanding Lacanche range cooker, integrated Subzero fridge and freezer and two dishwashers, perfect for both large scale entertaining and intimate dinner parties. The dining room is situated on the opposite side of the whitewashed wall - still linked to open plan living and kitchen spaces, yet naturally connected to the outdoors on three sides.
Family living is wonderfully warm and welcoming with integrated TV and lovely Jetmaster fire. Vast, sliding glass doors made of custom-joined timber open to seamlessly connect the ground floor living spaces to the lush gardens that are like a private green oasis. Beautifully sheltered from the afternoon sea breezes, the garden features mature Kentia palms, a pristine pool, a delightful alfresco dining area, a built-in barbecue and a custom-built outdoor shower.
The upper floor hosts soaring ceilings, sundrenched bedrooms, beautiful organic bathrooms, and an enchanting library. The blissful master bedroom features a balcony with vast sliding glass doors to capture the summer breezes and views of Rottnest Island. It has beautiful oak custom cabinetry, a huge walk-in robe, and a heavenly ensuite with gorgeous windows allowing natural light and fresh air to flow throughout.
Three lovely queen bedrooms each have walls of built-in robes, space for desks, and sliding doors and windows accessing the light filled garden terrace or views of the majestic Broome Street pines. There's an exquisite family bathroom with bath, roof window over the shower, floating vanity, and separate powder room. The library is a wonderful place for children to just be - no connectivity, and just serenity, space, sunlight, books, and breezes.
Imagine sliding open the timber shutters each morning to take in the view of Rottnest, ducking down to one of the most beautiful sections of Cottesloe beach for a quick swim, and later taking a stroll to one of the many cafes, restaurants, bars or pubs that are just moments away.
