SOPHISTICATED ITALIANATE STYLE ESTATE ON 2,183sqm
Occupying one of Peppermint Grove's largest residential landholdings, this magnificent Italianate residence is impressive in both scale and design. Nestled into the leafy streetscape, its double-storey limestone façade rises from behind mature peppermint trees and a majestic Norfolk Island pine.
The home was built in 1997 and designed by architect Max Barcham. Extensive renovations were undertaken in 2012 by RK Brine Master Builders and included a new luxury kitchen, an enclosed alfresco terrace, a new bathroom and other improvements. With five bedrooms, four bathrooms, three powder rooms, a study and multiple internal living and dining areas, it's the perfect retreat for large and multigenerational families.
Imported oak entry doors, soaring ceilings and waxed Italian terracotta floor tiles give you a taste of what lies behind the welcoming entrance. Immediately ahead, twin tiled staircases ascend to the second level, where you'll find three spacious bedrooms with built-in robes, two of which are street-facing with private balconies.
The vast primary bedroom suite includes a customised dressing room to impress the most discerning fashionista and a luxe ensuite with a double granite vanity, twin showers and an indulgent jet bath. You'll appreciate the tranquil view over the sprawling rear gardens, wisteria-covered loggia and pool from your private balcony. Down the hall, a beautifully appointed guest suite also has a private ensuite and street-facing balcony.
The upper level also includes a laundry chute, dumb waiter, walk-in linen and storage, a large family bathroom and powder room, an activity room with a concealed study nook, and another living area currently set up as a home gym.
Downstairs, the focus is firmly on living and entertaining. At the heart of this jaw-dropping masterpiece is the sleek designer kitchen, fitted with integrated European appliances, including Miele double ovens, an induction cooktop and dishwasher, a SubZero refrigerator, Vintec wine fridges and a Gaggenau steamer. Two waterfall breakfast islands - one clad in Caesarstone, the other in marble - invite family and guests to gather 'round while the chef creates their culinary magic. A smoked glass sliding cavity door leads to a scullery with an additional dishwasher, fridge drawer, a sink with a Ziptap, and plenty of pantry storage.
Whether it's a formal occasion, a casual family meal or a poolside soiree, you'll be spoilt for choice in dining options. In the warmer months, you'll be lured to the travertine-tiled alfresco, enclosed by bi-fold doors which open back to create a seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining space. It includes a cedar-lined ceiling with a fan, a stainless steel kitchen, a built-in Infresco BBQ and Vintec wine fridges. Beyond, the solar-heated lap pool beckons, with the timber loggia offering an idyllic spot to recline post-swim or enjoy a morning yoga session with the birds.
The lower level also features a temperature-controlled basement wine cellar, with built-in bottle racks, a sink and an automatic light in the stairwell, a powder room, a study with a decorative fireplace and a formal lounge room. There's also the renovated bathroom, fully tiled in Travertine with a floating marble vanity and rain shower.
Just 400 meters from the river's edge and minutes from Cottesloe beaches, world-class shopping and desirable schools, this property epitomises the leafy western suburbs' allure.
