AMAZING, beautiful, incredible, there is no shortage of adjectives to describe this award-winning, bespoke, two-storey home.

It is the creation of many, very talented people.

The four-year project began with a design by DesignWise’s Adrian De Lucia.

“Adrian’s scope was to design a home where the garden was to flow into the house and, whilst allowing lots of natural light, we wanted sufficient wall space to display our art collection,” the owners said.

“Materials were to be concrete and wood with simple lines and lots of natural light.

“Adrian fulfilled every aspect of our design brief and more.”

Spadaccini Homes brought the design to life, embracing the different quirks of the owners’ design and making them work.

Opulence Interiors’ Gavin Lim added the finishing touches to the home.

“Without his keen eye, the total attention to detail would have been incomplete,” the owners said.

The magic begins as soon as you see the house.

The native garden at the front attracts birds, bees and butterflies and provides colour year round.

“The street view of the house is stunning,” the owners said.

“The landscaping, particularly the planting of the veranda with the Pride Of Madeira, makes the house sit comfortably with the landscape.

“Once the garden matures it will be simply magnificent.”

The unique beauty continues with a stunning timber ceiling feature in the foyer created by Mr Lim and The Whale Carver Mark Yates.

An off-form concrete wall in the open-plan living area was inspired by Paraty House in Brazil and the owners said Mr Yates was the only person brave enough to take the work on and had created a masterpiece.

“We love the formed concrete wall with all its different textures and lights and the splash of colour from the paintings,” they said.

Mr Yates skills were showcased throughout the home.

“Mark eats and breathes timber and is a true artisan,” the owners said.

“He supplied all the locally sourced timber for the house, which was recovered from old buildings that were being demolished.

“He breathed life back into them, resurrecting them as solid WA blackbutt floorboards, jarrah single length arbour beams and handrails, or wandoo solid wooden step treads.”

Other stunning features include venetian plaster walls by The Polished Plaster Company, fused-glass windows by Perth Art Glass, a marble floor with underfloor heating in the living area, and aged bronze patina tapware from the UK in the kitchen.

The home is not only a visual marvel, it comes complete with a host of high-tech gadgets including Lutron lighting that can be controlled remotely, Gaggenau appliances in the kitchen, electronic key pads for entry and security, underfloor heating on both levels, a hidden gallery track system, and a lift for easy access to the three bedrooms.

There is not enough space available to describe all the wonders of this magnificent home, it needs to be viewed in person to really appreciate the craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into its creation.
