Old world meets Klopper Davis extension

Simply out of this world… A captivating 701sqm slice of blue-chip land; a classic character residence, skillfully transformed by award winning architects Klopper & Davis into a masterful synergy of old and new with grand proportions, substantial living space and considerable street presence.

Originally constructed in 1913 and set in beautiful, landscaped gardens, this magnificent family home is distinguished by its stately turret, decorative gable end and tall chimneys. Inside, soaring ceilings, wide jarrah floorboards, elaborate ceiling roses and cornicing, picture rails, high skirtings, tall sash windows, exquisite stained glass leadlights and open fireplaces sit easily alongside sympathetically extended open plan spaces, perfectly maintaining the home's connection to its Federation past, whilst contemporary fixtures and fittings brings it firmly up to date.

Perfectly in harmony with the demands of modern life, the versatile floorplan offers 4 or 5 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, flexible living spaces, big kitchen and dining area, fabulously large outdoor entertaining, pool and sizable front and rear gardens where families of all ages and stages can live easily here together yet still maintain their own space and privacy.

The original home features a long, traditional hall with 4 large bedrooms or 3 bedrooms and a generous living room, each with an original fireplace and tall sash windows. Transition through an unassuming internal door towards the end of the hallway into glorious sundrenched northern aspect open plan areas where walls of glass frame fabulous outdoor spaces. The well-appointed modern kitchen is designed to cater for large families with an adjacent dining area seating 10 or more with sliding doors opening to a huge decked alfresco entertaining area and pool. Family living is also super spacious, with stacking doors accessing a paved terrace and lawn beyond.

Upper-level accommodation is enormous with high raked ceilings and pretty leadlight windows. Completely multifunctional, it can be used as a master bedroom with plenty of space to add an ensuite, or as a games/TV room/teenage retreat, art/yoga studio, home office or parent's retreat.

There's so much to love about this exceptional family home. Elegant and refined, yet relaxed and comfortable in equal measure. Designed for effortless, harmonious living on a superb family sized block with all the conveniences of its supremely enviable location. Walking distance to Bob Hawke College and Subi Primary, Subiaco Arts Centre, Kings Park, cafes, bars, restaurants and boutique shopping on Rokeby Road, with easy access to public transport and the CBD.
