The Advocate (Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

THERE is no need to pack your bags and hop on a plane to ex­pe­ri­ence a Eu­ro­pean get­away in a lux­ury villa – you can en­joy it year round in West Swan.

Own­ers Con and Judy Paioff bought the prop­erty in 2001 and sell­ing agent Emma Mil­ner said they chose it be­cause it gave them the op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate a pri­vate es­tate within the ma­jes­tic Swan Val­ley wine re­gion, but still be only 30 min­utes from the CBD.

Villa Diony­sus was in­spired by the neo-clas­si­cal ar­chi­tec­tural fea­tures of the 18th-cen­tury villa es­tates in Venice and Lake Como.

The two-storey res­i­dence will amaze, with Vene­tian mar­ble dust ren­der to the ex­ter­nal walls and Gin­gin quartz used for the balustrad­ing, pi­lasters and arches. It of­fers ex­pan­sive fam­ily liv­ing or, with sep­a­rate wings with bed­rooms, liv­ing ar­eas and kitch­enettes, the op­por­tu­nity for ex­tended fam­ily to en­joy their own spaces.

The ground floor in­cludes a bed­room with en­suite, library, theatre room, cel­lar and a self-con­tained wing.

An open-plan liv­ing/din­ing area with com­mer­cial-qual­ity kitchen is on the first floor. The room opens to a large bal­cony and a cen­tral courtyard with che­quer­board paving, pool and colon­nade where you can en­ter­tain in style.

A self-con­tained guest­house with liv­ing/din­ing/kitchen area, bed­room with walk-in robe and en­suite also opens to the courtyard on the 2.79ha block.
