EXCEPTIONAL IN EVERY WAYFLOOR PLAN AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.
Exceptional in every way, this stunning builder's own' property is a one-off masterpiece. It showcases the most impressive materials, spaces, and design philosophies, and puts you in an enviable Cottesloe position a short walk from the beach.
Bathed in desirable northern sunlight and surrounded by nature, the home provides a private, tranquil setting for daily life. Entertaining is effortless there are wow-factor spaces on both the ground floor and upstairs level. An undercroft level providing secure garaging for 5-6 cars.
The current owner of the property was a carpenter before becoming a builder-home designer, and his appreciation of fine details can be seen throughout. The aesthetic was inspired by the idea of putting a clean, contemporary slant on the industrial' style with bespoke details gleaned from the world's trendiest restaurants and most exclusive modern hotels. A team of Perth's best craftsmen, stonemasons, and tradespeople were assembled to bring this grand vision to life, and the result is nothing short of breathtaking.
No corner was cut along the way, and the buyer will reap the benefits of this approach for many, many years to come. For example, rather than using a rendered brick on the exterior, gleaming white concrete panels were lifted in by crane (requiring a partial road closure and traffic management!). This was a challenging task, but the end result is far superior in terms of thermal property, noise insulation, durability, and style. You can come home at the end of a sweltering summer day, and barely need to turn air-conditioning on.
Although it's a modern home, it's full of character. Old jetty sleepers and Jarrah boards were painstakingly sourced from demolitions, and raw natural materials were used wherever possible. Details such as the hand-chipped granite stones in the garden walls further enhance that rustic-yet-sophisticated vibe.
In total, the home's sprawling floor plan contains approximately 600sqm internally, including an undercroft level containing a gym, 700-bottle wine cellar and the expansive car parking. On the ground floor, a spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen zone flows through floor-to-ceiling glass doors to the ultra-private outdoor entertaining zones. Indoors and out, there are views of the waterfall-edge swimming pool and lush backyard.
Everything has been thought of here the covered alfresco zone is equipped with a built-in gas barbecue, overhead fan, and outdoor heating, as well as provisions for an outdoor projector. A wall of windows provides a servery direct from the kitchen. The pool is positioned above-ground, by-passing the need for fencing.
The kitchen area is anchored by an eye-catching island & breakfast bar. Measuring nearly 4.5m long, this bespoke island is topped in solid slabs of polished concrete, which run to the floor. It is a social place where guests naturally gather to enjoy the cook's company. This very stylish look is completed by black steel with a bespoke patina finish, as well as timber insets, designer pendant lights, and a suite of Miele appliances.
The list of inclusions in this sale is impressive. To name just a few highlights, there are 2 built-in Vintec wine fridges, an industrial-size rangehood, a boiling/chilled zip tap, and a dumbwaiter delivers groceries direct from the undercroft garage.
