MAGNIFICENT, amazing, incredible; when it comes to this home, the adjectives roll off the tongue with ease.
It is a multi-award winning residence, including being named the 2012 Master Builders Top WA Home and earned Brian Burke Homes the 2012 National Residential Master Builder of the Year award.
The swimming pool has earned international accolades.
As you walk through the house, you cannot fail to be impressed with the attention to detail and the luxury features.
Selling agent Peter Robertson said it reflected the owners’ extensive time spent abroad.
“The reception areas of the home merge world standard craftsmanship more commonly seen in historical European sites with the poise and finish found within,” he said.
Set among landscaped gardens, it has a Neo-Georgian facade with Adelaide bluestone features walls, columns and a copper canopy at the entrance.
Mr Robertson referred to the entry as a work of art and it is easy to see why.
Three crystal bauble chandeliers hang from the barrel-shaped hand-painted ceilings, while the silver pearl limestone floors with marble and timber inlay draw the eye deeper into the home and to the gardens.
A study and drawing room sit on either side of the entry.
Both have gas fireplaces and french doors opening to the front gardens.
The study has Tasmanian myrtle joinery, box-beam coffered ceilings and marble-clad fireplace.
The drawing room fireplace has a WA-sourced Austral Dream marble surround.
This room has multiple uses; it could be a downstairs retreat, formal lounge or guest bedroom, complete with walk-in robe and ensuite.
The layout opens out to the main living areas, which include a family room, kitchen/dining area and games room.
The family room has a gas fireplace and looks out to an internal courtyard with a pond and fountain.
Whether you have Masterchef aspirations or simply enjoy cooking, the kitchen will delight and inspire.
It has Miele appliances, granite benchtops, a central island bench, several Franke sinks, a walk-in pantry and servery hatches to the entertaining area.
The games room opens to the courtyard and includes sheoak cabinetry, climate-controlled wine storage zone, bar and award-winning billiards table.
Bi-fold doors in the dining room and games room open to a stunning outdoor zone.
You can entertain in style and comfort year round beneath cedar-lined cathedral ceilings with ceiling fans and gas heaters, or seated around the rustic stone-clad fireplace.
Cooking facilities include a pizza oven, teppanyaki plate/barbecue, fridges, icemaker and drinks troughs.
The stunning pool, with spa and day bed, is another marvellous place to relax.
Visiting friends are sure to enjoy spending time in the guest bedroom with a “luxury liner vibe”that opens to the pool area and has cedar accents and marine-caulked flooring.
The outdoor amenities also include a gym, outdoor shower and powder room.
The family’s sleeping accommodation is upstairs, along with a large living area.
Two king-sized bedrooms with walk-in robes have ensuite access to the main bathroom with floating vanity units, large bath, walk-in shower and separate toilet.
The master suite occupies pride of place at the front of the home and is a decadent retreat with metallic-effect wallpaper and hand-sponged, tray ceiling details.
It includes a huge bedroom that opens to a juliet balcony with views of the tree-lined street, dressing room with his-and-hers walk-in robes and opulent ensuite with Statuario |Venato marble and pearlescent mosaic feature tiling.
