EPITOME OF LUXURY NEAR RIVER
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.”
