This sale is a rare opportunity; the first time the home has been offered for purchase since it was built in 1993. Designed by architect Geoff Warn, it has featured in several design books and magazines internationally.
It is north facing, with upstairs bedrooms creating a lovely tranquil feel; like you are living in the treetops. The master suite has a stunning ensuite and a balcony overlooking Fremantle landmark, Cantonment Hill.
The three large living spaces are downstairs along a breezeway running the length of the home opening onto a private walled Mediterranean-style, fully reticulated garden which has been part of Open Gardens Australia. The 15m lap pool is well fenced with hedges for privacy.
A roomy study is downstairs and can easily be a used as a studio or another bedroom.
The stylish kitchen, dining and living rooms are open-plan design, connecting onto the large, shady poolside courtyard. The architect has favoured natural materials like honey-coloured timber cabinetry in the galley-style kitchen which has a Miele dishwasher, large pantry and quality Ilve stove. There is abundant storage in the kitchen plus three purpose-built storage rooms and under-stair space.
You will notice many beautiful extras in this home, such as the floors, a mix of hardwood, parquetry and polished terrazzo. Concrete has also been used creatively in the bathrooms for a cool, minimalist look.
The design features soaring ceilings as part of its passive solar design aimed at minimising the need for additional heating or cooling.
