English Country Manor
Call Justin Wallace on 0406 755 845 for more details.
Only recently renovated, this grand family home tucked on a spacious, rear, north facing block is inspired by classical English architecture with a very contemporary edge.
Traditionally styled and presented it has the wonderful warmth of an English country manor, imbued with a sense of contemporary simplicity for a very Australian way of life.
Referencing the classic, structural lines and proportions of traditional Georgian Architecture, it echoes the period with generously proportioned rooms, high ceilings, and an array of large multi-level square paned windows.
Located in the heart of Peppermint Grove, minutes from all of this suburb's much sought after amenities and features, its side and rear entries offer the residents a sense of privacy and a secluded location back off street level.
Standing apart from its more traditional Federation and Queen Anne counterparts, there is a simple elegance to this home and its clever use of space and proportion that gives it a very classical, New England or even Hamptons feel.
As is characteristic of traditional Georgian style, it opens into a grand entrance with soaring double level, panelled windows and gives way to a sweeping jarrah staircase to the upper level.
The ground floor footprint is dominated by a huge, open plan kitchen, living and dining space with panels of white timber windows facing North and east and looking out over the glass framed pool and mature gardens with their raised planter beds
The original kitchen has been completely renovated and extended with an exceptional attention to detail and boasts a vast array of white timber, self-closing cabinetry and an expanse of white Caesar stone bench tops.
A custom designed and constructed Blackbutt island bench adds a slightly Australian touch giving this space an easy informality and a natural focal point for family gatherings and entertaining.
The kitchen features a 1100mm state-of-the-art European stove with gas cooktop and range hood as well as a large walk-in pantry and is ideal both for larger families and those with a love of easy entertaining.
A downstairs playroom with tiled floors is a practical addition for younger children and opens out via a set of white French doors onto the rear entertaining area overlooking the pool, allowing access for wet bodies to the downstairs bathroom/wetroom which is consistently styled to maintain this home's simple yet elegant aesthetic in a palette of white and neutral with open glass framed shower, simple sink and cabinetry and natural, earth-inspired tiling.
Wide polished Jarrah floorboards have been used both upstairs and down in a nod to this home's Australian heritage with reverse cycle, ducted air-conditioning and additional ceiling fans throughout.
A lower level study/bedroom and additional ensuite bathroom could easily double as a lower level guest room giving the residents a versatility depending on the size of their family and their particular requirements.
A formal lower level sitting room with stunning custom made, interlined and backed heavy linen floor to ceiling curtains, which are evident throughout the house, and built-in cabinetry with an open gas fireplace offers a great sense of separation as families grow.
This beautiful home's main accommodation is accessed via a sweeping, Jarrah staircase up to a large alternative lounge or living space, giving larger families or those with older children plenty of options in terms of spreading out and finding a space of one's own.
The master bedroom is generously sized with a north facing balcony overlooking the pool and garden, with views across Cottesloe to the distant Norfolk Pines. It boasts a large ensuite bathroom with all white stone bench tops, a glass framed shower and a large his and hers walk-in robe.
All of the additional bedrooms are consistently sized and styled, easily accommodating the queen sized beds that the current owners have in each room, with built-in desks and window seats and walk-in robes offering plenty of storage. Easily able to accommodate the largest of families they are all impeccably styled and finished with a designer's eye for detail and the practical inclusion of space and storage throughout.
The second upstairs bathroom features a huge beautiful free standing egg-shaped bath, separate walk in shower and toilet with dual sinks set into crisp, white stone bench tops.
This home is a slightly out of the box family home that will appeal to those with a love of classical lines and proportions looking for a beautiful family home that will grow as they do.
Minutes from river and coast, golf courses, tennis courts, restaurants and parkland, this is an outstanding family home in Perth's most prestigious riverfront suburb.
