The new owners of this unique and unparalleled home will be buying at a level that is well below replacement value. The sellers are willing to meet the market and sell.
Sitting high on the hill looking out over the ocean and islands, and embracing natural textures of timber and limestone to reflect the coastal environment, this large, beautiful family home combines a true down-south, beachy feel with understated luxury and plenty of space, including an independent self-contained apartment.
Behind a limestone wall, opposite a park and shaded by peppermint trees, there is nothing “suburban” about this house, as its elevated position gives a sense of both seclusion and openness with uninterrupted views. Tasmanian oak floors and feature walls of limestone and shell harmonise the natural palette of the home, with Stone Italia white pearl benchtops throughout, including in the generous kitchen with its commercial Smeg range and integrated appliances. A two-sided saltwater fish tank makes an aquatic 'window' between the kitchen and the study, an ideal workspace with built-in office furnishings. Also on this level is a fully-fitted big-screen theatre room which could alternatively make for a comfortable 5th bedroom or activity room. A separate wing stemming from the living area boasts two bedrooms, each with its own French doors to the garden, and a large bathroom with corner bath. The wing is completed with a large, functional family laundry and separate powder room.
The open-plan living opens through glass walls to multiple outdoor living spaces making the most of the large corner position. Lounge under the trellised grapevine or feed the crowd from the superb stainless steel outdoor kitchen, with travertine island bench and pizza oven. A sophisticated aquaponic system feeds the edible gardens of stone fruit, berries, citrus, avocado and much more.
Upstairs is a complete retreat opening to a wraparound terrace to relax and drink in the summer blue or watch the storms roll in in winter. A series of spaces connect through concertina white plantation shutter doors: master bedroom, kitchenette, walk-through robe, pebble-floored bathroom with spa bath and rain-shower, separate toilet and enormous roof storage.
Separated from the main house is the self-contained studio apartment equipped with bathroom, kitchenette/laundry, bedroom, and its own entry and parking bay. The apartment is separately metered for ease of independent use and ideal for income generation as rental accommodation or a home business.
On the ground level is also a substantial gym/workshop plus an over-sized garage.
Conveniently located, with Cockburn Gateway Shopping Centre, train station and the new ARC Aquatic and Sports Centre now home to the Fremantle Dockers, only minutes away. This is your chance to live near the coast with Coogee Beach just minutes away, and with easy access to a boat ramp, it's a fitting location for a home with room to park a boat. With panoramic views, architecturally created gardens and a remarkably clever design, this home has true coastal vision.
