FINE COLONIAL RESIDENCEUNDER OFFER
The private residence of one of Perth's best interior designers, the owner of Quinces, it's my privilege to once again present her own home to the market.
Built in the late 1800's, this home has maintained it's architectural originality. The interior details are a surprise, and becoming increasingly hard to find. No Victorian enhancements of cornices, no ceiling roses etc to spoil the majestic balance of space throughout all the rooms, linked by a stunning central hallway almost 2m wide it's entire length.
Elevated from the footpath, plenty of land, fine and wide Jarrah floorboards... the features list goes on and on.
The current owner took much pleasure in the respectful refurbishment and additions. The decision to convert a north facing room into a spacious bathroom (incorporating a hide-away laundry behind bi-fold doors) is just one of may generous ideas executed. Lessons learned from many previous renovations and over 30 years in the industry have all been applied.
Drapes of the finest quality (French and Italian linen and silks) frame the windows and opening doors to view the elegant yet easy care lush gardens. No hedges to trim or lawns to mow.
The exceptional proportions of this home needed no colour enhancements or distractions. Many shades of soft chalk white paint were selected. Roller for large areas but all else done by hand. All fitted cabinets individually designed by the owner were commissioned, then painted on site.
A stand out feature is the rare, fine honey coloured marble used through the kitchen and bathrooms, edge finished with "furniture detail" suitable for furniture of the same period. The kitchen is a chef's delight, with large appliances & pull out pantry doors. Looking over the gardens, fresh herbs and salad greens are within easy reach.
This is a quality offering in a superb location, enjoy walking to get your coffee on your way to the Indian Ocean.
