Nostalgia collides with luxury in this newly-built residence. It's architecturally striking, and has the latest high quality finishes. But it also brings back warm memories of a childhood home.
Designed by architects Klopper & Davis, this stunning property is at the cutting edge of a renaissance in the 1970s modernist style. The trend has been reinterpreted with a contemporary twist, including features such as a dramatic angled roofline, endless built-in storage, and vast open plan living areas that flow out to a poolside entertaining terrace. Enormous timber-framed glass doors ensure that transition from indoors to outdoors is seamless.
Channeling a laid back summery vibe, the home is laid out around the lap pool. This optimises natural light and privacy, while opening up sparkling pool views from many rooms. The pool is heated and salted with magnesium, offering fabulous health benefits. In addition, the water acts as natural air-conditioning for the entire home in the summer months. There's also a good-sized lawn for kids and pets to play.
The accommodation provides all the space and flexibility a family could ever need. Tucked away at the western end of the main level, you'll find a palatial master suite, complete with huge walk-in robe and beautiful ensuite bathroom. There's also 2 large children's bedrooms, a study, family bathroom, powder room, and a second lounge room additional to the main open plan areas. An undercroft level contains a 4th bedroom (or TV den) and ensuite bathroom.
Meanwhile, friends and family can be accommodated in the 'guest pavilion' at the far end of the home. Equally suited to a home-based business, this studio-style space includes a large bedroom/office, an ensuite bathroom, and a store room.
Above all, it's the small details that elevate this home to 'outstanding'. Handsome timber paneling is set against brass and marble in the kitchen; ultra-modern floating vanities and oversized baths sit alongside retrospective tiling in the bathrooms.
There's also several high value designer inclusion, such as a Vintage Sciolari pendant light in the ensuite, and a Gubi Semi Pendant above the dining table (designed 1967). The honeycomb blinds in the bedrooms were custom-made in the USA, and all stone and tiling was supplied by the industry leader, Artedomus. You'll also love the ultra-fast broadband (110 mb/s - faster than NBN).
The home feels just as good as it looks, thanks to the passive design principles, which mean very little heating and cooling is required to maintain a comfortable temperature all year-round. There's also underfloor heating in living areas and bathrooms, and radiator heating in each bedroom. Extra-thick glass in the main living area and studio acts as both noise and heat insulation, and 6kW of solar panels further reduces electricity costs.
Merely 6 houses back from Lake Monger, the position puts stunning nature at your fingertips, while keeping you central to all the action. Walk to the cafes and boutiques of either Subiaco or Leederville in 20 minutes, or jump on the Mitchell Freeway in a 2 minute drive. Perth CBD is a quick & easy 6 minute trip, and City Beach is 10 minutes by car.
This property is absolutely unique, and we predict it will be love at first sight for many buyers. Please express your interest to us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
