SOMETIMES a property renders you speechless; everywhere you look your eye is caught by an amazing feature.
This is one of those homes.
It has incredible views, a black and white hand printed ceiling spanning the upper floor, rusted Corten steel screens, timber ceiling on the lower level reminiscent of origami and a fireplace with marble surround that soars up through the void.
Even the walk-in robe is impressive.
The home’s design was inspired by the owner’s love of Frank Lloyd Wright, life in Vietnam and the beauty of the Abrolhos Islands and brought to life by Wrightfeldhusen Architects.
It was built to evoke the feeling of being perched on the end of a jetty and showcases the river with floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows wherever possible.
The lower level has an open-plan living/kitchen/dining area with sealed concrete flooring with underfloor heating.
The state-of-the-art kitchen has American walnut cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances.
A timber ‘jetty’ runs between the kitchen and living/dining space to the timber stairs leading to the first floor.
At one end, the living/dining area opens to a timber deck overlooking the river where you can sit and watch the activity on the water.
At the other it opens to an airy central courtyard.
There are also three huge bedrooms, a luxurious bathroom and a casual living area on this floor.
The upper level a living area/study/gym – the choice is yours – that has timber flooring and overlooks the internal courtyard.
There is also a stunning office and the master suite.
Both rooms have superb river views.
The master bedroom also includes the aforementioned walk-in robe and opulent open-concept ensuite with marble, Argento stone and timber features.
This is such an incredible home it is hard to imagine anyone wanting to move out.
Selling agent Mark Dimmock said the owners plan to stay in the area and intend to build again.
Their next project is sure to be just as stunning.
