FAMILY games night will take on a new meaning in this huge three-storey home on an 1136sq m block.
There is certainly plenty of room for something traditional like Monopoly, to set up a PlayStation or Wii, or even watch a movie in the theatre room with built-in bar, but there is also the opportunity to do something more grand.
The owners have held many games tournaments, starting with tennis on the full-sized tennis court with lighting and ending with billiards in billiard room. They said the home was also ideal for entertaining and have celebrated 18ths, 21sts and a 50th in the 12 years they have lived there.
“We once had an Arabian night themed party where we transformed the lower level of the house, including the four-car garage, into a huge Arabian-style tent with fairy lights threaded all through the garden and along the roof,” the owners said.
“The party flowed through to the bar and lounge and cellar, providing endless surprises for our guests.”
The house is also ideal for multi-generational living or catering for guests, with a self-contained unit including a bedroom, bathroom and lounge/meals area with kitchenette on the lower level.
This level also includes the lounge/theatre room, wine cellar and laundry.
Outside there is a lovely Tuscan-style alfresco area with pizza oven, shady trees and manicured gardens.
The ground floor includes the main open-plan living/dining area with Tasmanian oak flooring and a stunning kitchen with stone benchtops and Miele appliances.
It opens to an alfresco area overlooking the tennis court.
There is also a formal lounge room with fireplace, dining room, activity room, two bedrooms with built-in robes and a bathroom on this floor.
Upstairs is the billiards room with fireplace, library/study and large master bedroom with spa ensuite with double shower and walk-in robe.
It opens to a balcony where you can watch the sun set over the treetops.
When the owners bought the home they thought it was in the perfect location with easy access to private schools and UWA.
It is also conveniently close to a range of other amenities.
“We can easily walk to the shops, cafes and restaurants via the pedestrian access to the rear lane and yet still enjoy the peace and tranquility of Dalkeith,” they said.
“The Nedlands golf course is minutes away and there are day care centres, primary schools and private schools all within five minutes of our house. We have the river at the end of the street and many fabulous parks and open spaces to enjoy.”
