EVERYTHING ON YOUR WISHLIST
HOMEBUYERS on the hunt for a house that has everything will find it hard to walk past this richly designed custom residence.
Bursting with bespoke inclusions across its massive 505sq m, this Oswald Homes creation is certainly one of a kind.
The location is just as impressive. The house is on 850sq m of prime land privately tucked away in a peaceful corner of South Perth close to popular cafes, several bus routes, Wesley College and a 15minute walk to the foreshore.
Inside, it is immediately clear owners Jane Pillow and her husband Kevin Black spared no expense on the construction of the house.
Professor Pillow, who is a clinical academic neonatologist at the University of Western Australia, said the family were only selling up to be closer to work and their son’s university.
“When we built it, we were anticipating to be there for 10 to 15 years but life always changes and we are now downsizing,” Professor Pillow said.
“Some of it just reflects our interests; the cellar for example is there because my husband is a very avid wine enthusiast and collector.”
Striking Spanish marble floors stretch from the double-door entry through to the main living areas, leading the eye to the gourmet kitchen with Miele stainless steel appliances, a built-in microwave, ceramic taps, solid timber cabinets and Silestone benchtops.
The master bedroom has digital underfloor heating, a spa ensuite and his-and-hers robes.
A separate hot water storage system has been allocated for the laundry and kitchen, and the kitchen and fridge are plumbed into a filtered rainwater tank.
Other features include a two-person custom-built home office, a gym, upstairs and downstairs living area and a temperature-controlled 900-bottle wine cellar.
The pièce de résistance of this jaw-dropping residence is undoubtedly the outdoor entertainment space.
The eye is quickly drawn to the sunken resort-inspired pool, which has tropical-style landscaping.
The luscious borereticulated gardens have lime, lemon, avocado and blood orange trees.
Rounding off the extensive list of extras are the wonderful city views from the first-floor balcony.
