SO iconic is this Ascot masterpiece in its distinguished riverfront setting that it has captured the heart of Perth’s sartorial set.
“We had a fashion shoot out the front of our house around the pool with a local designer,” one of the owners said.
Who can blame the designer for choosing the unique facade, which was one of the reasons the owners bought the home five years ago.
“We fell in love with the Art Deco look – this house is just not cookie cutter,” the owner said.
“The river view is also fantastic and will not be built out. And it’s a great community area, with horses being walked daily and people are friendly and know each other.”
Although built in 1987, the bespoke tri-level home has contemporary appeal with a throwback twist.
The property – all 984sq m of it – also has front access via The Esplanade through secure gates and rear access via a private carriageway off Forbes Street leading to the impressive four-car garage with mechanical hoist.
Designed for those who love to entertain friends and family, at the heart of the residence is the modern kitchen with high-end cooking appliances that overlooks large split-level living spaces that spill out to the resort-inspired pool area.
“We love every room in the house, but we do love our lounge room with the double-height ceilings with three large glass domes, river views, our white baby grand piano, and Art Deco-style open fire,” the owner said.
“As we are right in front of the river we never tire of sitting outside watching the sunset or, if we’re really lucky, we see the dolphins in the morning while having our coffee.”
Buyers can also expect the rest of the home to be as well-designed with the majority of the upper level dedicated to the master suite.
The extensive list of features includes a lower level cellar, a private home office on the mezzanine, and a man cave with custom-made billiards table.
The home is open for viewing this Saturday, March 24, at 1.30pm by appointment. Contact Melanie Quadros on 0411 507 565 to register to view.
