SWEEPING views are yours to enjoy from this magnificent two-storey home.
Designed to make the most of the outlook, open-plan living areas, walls of windows, high ceilings and soaring voids allow you to look out over Pyramids Surf Beach, The Cut golf course and take in spectacular sunsets from many rooms over the two floors.
The owner said it reminded her of the Lotto Dream advert, as early in the mornings it felt like she could wake up and walk straight out on to a gorgeous seascape view that only she was able to see.
“The fresh air and tranquil setting, shared only by the local wildlife, such as the rabbits and kangaroos, feels like special privilege to experience each time,” she said.
“To me this is the home’s uniqueness that sets it apart.”
As well as the stunning views, the home also has direct access to the golf course and coastal pathways along the beach.
The owners first saw the 727sq m block in 2008 on the way to the South-West for a holiday.
“It struck me as the most magnificent ocean view in metropolitan Perth,” he said.
“It took centre place on my dream board; two years later we had the opportunity to buy the block without winning Lotto.”
It took a few years to design their dream home, which was completed in 2015, and the aim was to create something unique and timeless that would suit them as their family developed and they moved into retirement.
The home even includes provision for a lift and the doorways are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair.
“We wanted a home that could be enjoyed by multiple generations with welcoming communal areas as well as private and personal living spaces,” the owner said.
“The design incorporates the retro style of the ’60s and Californian beach homes with mixture of flat and skillion roofs, high ceilings and glass walls of floor-to-ceiling windows that connect the house to the outside.”
The home is built over two wings, separated by the foyer.
One includes the family bedrooms and bathrooms, the other the living areas.
The ground floor includes two bedrooms with built-in robes and doors to a veranda, a bathroom with double vanity unit and Japanese soaker bath, and a powder room.
The living zones include an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area complete with a scullery, which the owner said was very useful when entertaining.
“You can hide any preparation away from guests ’til after they’ve left so everyone just gets to relax and enjoy time together,” she said.
Doors open to a north-facing alfresco area and the yard, which includes a swimming pool with a spa bench.
The owner said the coastal garden was a delight, attracting different types of birds.
There is also a media room that opens to a courtyard.
Guests are well catered for; a suite with its own access from the foyer includes a sitting area with kitchenette, ensuite, walk-in robe and bedroom.
It could also suit older relatives, or adult children still living at home who want their own space.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has his-and-hers walk-in robes, balcony, powder room and ensuite with two vanity units, bath and shower, and fantastic views.
“We really enjoy weekend mornings sitting in bed having a cup of tea watching the kangaroos and rabbits on the golf course, and the dolphins,” the owner said.
Across the landing is a study and lounge room with kitchenette/bar and a wraparound balcony where you can sit and watch the sun go down.
“You can also see the Dawesville Channel/The Cut inlet and all the way up the coast from there, and it might even be the lights of Rottnest that we can sometimes see in the distance,” the owner said.
“On a clear night the stars are amazing, as the light pollution is minimal from this location.
“Entertaining on the balcony is also a highlight.
“It’s great to hear the response from guests the first time they see the views from the upper floor.”
While the owners had planned to live there for many years, their children have moved out and they have made the decision to move closer to ageing parents in Joondalup.
“We both feel proud of this property and believe we have successfully captured the beauty of the natural views to be enjoyed by future owners for many years to come,” she said.
