Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

MAG­NIF­I­CENT, pala­tial and im­pres­sive: th­ese are words that eas­ily come to mind when view­ing this colos­sal res­i­dence for the first time.

Own­ers Robyn and Rob have lived in the home for 14 months and moved in when it was brand new.

“It was built by a bou­tique builder and it’s got a great lay­out for multi-gen­er­a­tional fam­i­lies,” Robyn said.

“There is a sec­ond home that is com­pletely self­con­tained and sep­a­rate from the rest of the house.

“There is also a lift that goes to all floors, in­clud­ing the loft, which has been done to the same high spec as the rest of the house with car­pets and skirt­ing boards.”

Con­tem­po­rary fit­tings con­trast beau­ti­fully with more tra­di­tional el­e­ments, a look which is beau­ti­fully ex­e­cuted in the kitchen.

Glossy cof­fee-coloured cab­i­nets and white stone bench­tops are an­chored by mar­ble floors, cre­at­ing a de­cid­edly con­tem­po­rary feel.

Add to that the stain­less steel Miele ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing a steam oven and sec­ond elec­tric oven, and you have a win­ning com­bi­na­tion.

There are sev­eral liv­ing spa­ces through­out, be­gin­ning with an el­e­gant for­mal lounge with gas fire­place on the ground floor next to the en­try foyer.

There are ad­di­tional in­for­mal fam­ily ar­eas on each of the three lev­els, in­clud­ing the open-plan main liv­ing space, as well as a home of­fice and a the­atre.

Sev­eral open-air ar­eas are dot­ted up­stairs and down­stairs, with the al­fresco area fea­tur­ing a state-of-the-art built-in kitchen hold­ing fort as the main out­door en­ter­tain­ing space.

“There’s a gas pizza oven, a fridge, sink, mi­crowave and com­mer­cial bar­be­cue with range­hood,” Robyn said.

“All the cup­boards have glass fronts and there are glass splash­backs as well.”

The long list of fea­tures also in­cludes a se­cu­rity sys­tem with video in­ter­com and alarm, elec­tric en­try gates and ducted vac­u­um­ing.

A short walk to the South Perth Fore­shore, the popular Mill­point Cafe Book­shop and Ciao Italia restau­rant, as well as Wes­ley Col­lege, the prop­erty is also in a top spot.

“A huge plus for this house is that it’s two doors down from the river and The Boat­shed Restau­rant,” Robyn said.

“And it’s close to Mill Point Road but you can’t hear any noise or traf­fic be­cause all the liv­ing ar­eas are at the back of the house.”

“And even though it’s a big house on a cor­ner block, it’s not a bad house to lock up and leave; the yards are big enough for the grand­chil­dren but it’s not over­sized so there’s not a lot of work.”
