UNIQUE HERITAGE MASTERPIECE - AWARD WINNING HISTORIC HOME SET FAIR FOR THE FUTURE

ALL OFFERS TO BE PRESENTED by 5pm on Monday the 11th of March (unless sold prior). Register for viewing times.

For the first time in almost 90 years, the landmark Windsor Hall is offered for sale presenting a unique opportunity to acquire a beautiful heritage mansion in the prestigious Perth suburb of Mount Lawley.

Evoking timeless elegance and refined grandeur, Windsor Hall occupies a prized position on a rare and generous 1892 m2 block (approx.), its elevated position capturing breathtaking views of Perth's skyline.

This remarkable two-storey heritage-listed mansion was constructed in 1904 for the Mayor of North Perth by the distinguished architect H.J. Prockter. A stunning Free Federation-style residence; it now stands as a testament to the architectural splendour and superior craftsmanship of Western Australia's Gold Boom.

One of the first homes built on Queens Crescent, Windsor Hall set the standard for the grand mansions of Mount Lawley, a suburb synonymous with comfortable affluence. Having been cherished by three generations of a single family, the residence underwent a meticulous restoration in late 2023 by heritage craftsmen, renowned for their work on the award-winning Coogee Hotel. Now, after almost 90 years, this iconic property is ready to welcome a new family, heritage enthusiast, or savvy investor eyeing the potential of a prime, sub-dividable block in a locality boasting high-quality residential, educational and medical zoning.

Take a journey back in time and step through the leadlight front door and brick-and-limestone walls to discover the tranquil and harmonious ambience of an Edwardian family home. Voluminous rooms seamlessly flow together, adorned with soaring three-metre-high ceilings, exquisite decorative cornices, character ceiling roses, solid wood Jarrah floors and a series of ornate fireplaces in most rooms. The spacious downstairs living room connects effortlessly to a formal-dining room through hand-blown glass doors.

The airy ground-floor bedroom features a decorative ceiling. Stained-glass windows overlook a leafy garden filled with birdsong. The low-maintenance garden is secured by front pedestrian and driveway gates. An adjacent office is already approved for an additional powder room.

.An informal meals or family room was the original kitchen and offers potential for conversion for modern day living. A concealed internal staircase leads up to what was once the "maid's" room or fifth bedroom. Downstairs is a cool, dry basement that awaits transformation into a wine cellar or home gym.

Ascend the central Jarrah staircase to find three generously-sized bedrooms with sweeping city vistas to the front and a vast 945 sqm (approx.) garden and yard to the rear. A self-contained 1x1 apartment, with open plan kitchen and living room, occupies one part of the upper level and presents opportunities for separate living, rental income, or seamless integration into the home.

Wrap around verandahs on both upper and lower floors are one of the most special features, connecting the house with the garden. Enjoy the laid back ambiance with a sundowner, entertain friends, catch the cool sea breeze, and watch the sun set over the city.

Retaining all its original features, Windsor Hall now presents a blank canvas for the next owner to design a future home or business. With the combination of a large heritage house and an extensive rear block, once home to tennis courts, possibilities abound - from an innovative modern extension to a completely separate development, a leisure haven, or a magnificent garden with mature trees. There is absolutely no limit to what can be achieved here.

In close proximity to high-quality schools - including neighbouring Perth College, medical facilities, the river, boutique stores and the vibrant cafes and restaurants of Beaufort Street, the property combines the convenience of inner-city living with the tranquillity of a peaceful and protected enclave. Public transport services provide a swift 10-minute commute to the CBD and a 15-minute train ride to Perth Airport.

Seize this rare opportunity to secure a home steeped in Western Australian history - a residence to cherish and love for generations to come. This is your chance to write the next page in this saga of elegance and grandeur!
