PICTURE this: the kids are splashing about in the downstairs pool with their friends while you keep an eye on the snags sizzling away on your built-in Beefeater barbecue – all this set against the backdrop of Perth’s spectacular skyline.
Your other half is pouring out some bubbly for your guests in the kitchen as they join you in watching the sky above Elizabeth Quay turn a vibrant shade of pink during sunset.
This could be a regular weekend for the lucky buyer of 4 Edinburgh Street in South Perth, a palatial tri-level property on 389sq m just two blocks back from Mill Point Road and round the corner from St Columba Catholic Church.
“This home is ideal for those who enjoy the finer things in life,” selling agent Giuli Zirino said.
“This home suits buyers who appreciate quality, luxury and style, combined with low-maintenance living and the very best in outdoor entertaining to take advantage of the spectacular panoramic views.
“Families with teenagers can enjoy the added benefit of the separate sleeping and living zone, which is also perfect for when guests come to stay as they have their own floor to occupy.”
The 466sq m residence, which was built in 2007 by esteemed Giorgi Exclusive Homes, has an upside-down floor plan to take full advantage of its position with the main family/kitchen/dining space and entertainer’s balcony located on the top floor.
Also on this level is a guest bedroom or an option for the master bedroom with ensuite and dressing room, a home office with storeroom and a powder room.
Downstairs on the entry level is the other possible master bedroom with walk-in robe, private balcony and an impressive spa ensuite with underfloor heating and a separate shower and toilet, as well as a third bedroom, a shared bathroom, separate toilet, linen closet, and sprawling lounge room with fireplace.
Another level down on the lower-ground floor is a third living space – perfect as a games room, cinema or man cave – that leads out to the alfresco space and pool and sits alongside the dedicated wine cellar, a fourth bathroom with shower and toilet, and the laundry room.
An executive residence of this calibre is of course packed with top extras including smart wiring, integrated audio throughout, ducted vacuuming, a security system with cameras and intercom,
Daikin ducted reverse-cycle airconditioning, a laundry chute, electric front gates, full-height tiling to all bathrooms, wool carpets and travertine marble flooring.
“Everything you could possibly need to enjoy a luxurious riverside lifestyle is here,” Mrs Zirino said.
“The neighbourhood is filled with families and business professionals alike.
“The home is just a short stroll to the foreshore where you can enjoy a walk along the River or a quiet picnic, catch the ferry into Elizabeth Quay or take advantage of all the cafes and restaurants that the ever expanding Mends Street precinct has to offer.”
