Private Mediterranean Manor
Olive trees line the driveway to this Mediterranean-inspired home of grand proportions. With room for a large family, guests and more. Located in the heart of prestigious Peppermint Grove, you'll be a stones throw away from all the lifestyle opportunities and conveniences you could wish for.
Down a wide entrance corridor, you are welcomed into a grand open plan formal living and dining area. Wooden floorboards, soaring ceilings and an upstairs ceiling void creates a welcoming sense of light and space.
A large living area with travertine tiles opens up onto to the lush green gardens and the sparking blue pool with water features. Oversized frangipani trees and plenty of pool side lounging space creates the feel of a private resort.
This home was built for entertaining and the Australian lifestyle, protected from the wind and harsh afternoon sunlight. A built in BBQ, sink, fridge and stainless steel bench-top runs down one side of the entertaining area. From here you can watch over the pool, entertain friends in the spacious undercover area, with easy access the kitchen and a guest bathroom.
There is seamless flow between the outdoor and indoor entertaining areas. A large, well appointed kitchen with marble bench tops and Miele appliances looks directly out to the pool and gardens, and is connected to the entrance void and formal dining, as well as a separate informal living area behind.
With rooms for up to 6 bedrooms and plenty of separate living areas, this house is well suited to a large established family. There is plenty of space and great separation of living zones, yet the property is not high maintenance and is easy to lock and leave whilst you head off on extended holidays.
Up the grand staircase you'll find all the family bedrooms. A floating adults wing wraps around the glass balustrade of the staircase looking down to the living area below. This includes a large study looking out towards the Norfolk Pines and sunsets of Cottesloe, a kitchenette and adults retreat, and through to the grand master suite with mounted TV and surround sound. The palatial ensuite features floor to ceiling travertine tiles, a corner spa bath, large shower and separate toilet. A large walk-in-robe is compete with beautiful wooden cabinetry.
The children's wing includes three very generously sized bedrooms and a large travertine bathroom with both shower and bath. There is also a study nook or rumpus room area. From the children's wing, there is a separate staircase which leads directly down to the informal living area and kitchen.
Downstairs, off the main living area, is a large guest wing complete with built-in robes and ensuite. This room is well separated from the rest of the living areas and bedrooms, created some privacy for yourselves and guests.
The back of the home can be adapted to suit your needs. There is a large laundry, bathroom and two additional rooms that could be used as a kids study, playroom, or Au Pair wing. This opens up onto a roof terrace that could be transformed into an additional play space, a sun-soaked vegetable garden, or even an entertaining deck.
In the basement you'll find a large theatre room with surround sound, a billiards room with wine racks, wine fridges and kitchenette, and an underground garage with room for up to 5 cars plus extra space for a large work station. This is an older teenagers dream! Separation from parents and plenty of room to entertain friends. You could make as much noise as you wanted down here without disturbing anyone.
This grand home is surrounded by enviable lifestyle and luxury; one block east and you're stand-up paddle boarding in the breathtaking Freshwater Bay, and a block to the west you'll be browsing the boutiques of Napoleon Street before a fabulous long lunch at Vans. Private schools, restaurants, bars, Peppermint Grove Tennis Club, Freshwater Bay Yacht Club, Cottesloe train station, the beach, Boatshed Market, pilates studios and so much more are all moments away. A stroll down the road and you'll find yourself at one of the most beautiful bays of the Swan River, admiring the black swans and even occasional dolphins. Convenience, luxury and natural beauty are all at your fingertips.
