135 Hamersley Road,
Iconic Local LandmarkGlorious one of a kind Federation Queen Anne style brick and slate roofed home, possibly the most distinctive residence in Subiaco. The 'Joseph Duffel Residence' was described by the National Trust in 1981 as one of the most original and distinguished houses of its period designed by a foremost architectural practice of the day, Hine and Selby.
Exquisitely presented and faithfully restored, this splendid 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom single level home is situated on two lots of land totaling 614 sqm and represents the essence of Subiaco.
Built in 1906, the original owner was subsequently the Mayor of the then Central Ward Perth and this grand structure reflects his place in the community.
Apart from the distinctive turret and spire at the front of the home, a plethora of character features distinguish it. Tall corbelled chimneys, sweeping bull-nosed verandah with carved brackets attached to the turned posts, spectacular stained glass windows, high ornate ceilings, fireplaces, jarrah floors….the list goes on!
The formal living room is an exercise in elegance and all other rooms suggest a home of superior quality.
The modern kitchen with walk in pantry, wine cellar and meals area for six people, plus the two traditional style bathrooms complement the ambience.
Landscaped gardens and a beautiful below ground swimming pool provide a resort feel and a large double garage with auto door completes the picture.
This home has a character unobtainable elsewhere. If you are a devotee of such architectural richness it demands consideration!
