Country lifestyle feel | The West Australian

Sitting pretty on the Swan River, this magnificent waterfront abode offers opulent living while still remaining an intimate family home.

Designer Leon Spiccia and builder Gallagher Construction worked together with the homeowners to create a one-of-a-kind home.

“The style of the home is a classical one,” current homeowner Con Sarris said. “It features shingle roof tiles, large columns and a natural limestone construction.

“It is well designed to take in the views of its natural surroundings.”

The beauty of the property begins as you pass manicured golf greens and bunkers along the driveway, before catching sight of the home itself.

An oversized double front door and arched windows offer a sophisticated welcome.

As you step inside, be impressed with views through to the living room and waterway beyond.

A formal dining sits to the left of the entrance and on the other side sits an office large enough for a comfortable work-from-home setup.

Boasting a stunning outlook, the guest suite provides privacy for visiting family and friends with a walk-in robe, an ensuite and a separate toilet.

The living room is the star of the home, featuring soaring ceilings and large windows, so the backdrop of the river can’t be missed.

Cleverly tucked behind the kitchen is a bathroom with a shower and a toilet, as well as a large laundry with outdoor access.

A true chef’s kitchen is loaded with 900mm Miele appliances, plenty of storage and a large fully fitted pantry to make sure culinary delights are a breeze to create.

Extending the open-plan living and dining area is an informal sunken family lounge, which features a gas fireplace to keep the home warm during the cooler months.

A striking spiral staircase leads up to a vast landing, which is an ideal spot for a small sitting area.

Behind a set of double doors is a grand master bedroom fit for the heads of the household.

It features a private balcony with river views, a commodious walk-in robe and an ensuite with a shower, a bath, a double vanity unit and a separate toilet.

There is a private living area tucked away behind double doors, offering separation from the rest of the home.

Three minor bedrooms come with built-in robes, two with a private balcony.

A glittering pool, spa and low-maintenance gardens makes the backyard feel like a resort year-round, according to Mr Sarris.

“The outdoor area is very accommodating,” he said. “It has a large, well-equipped outdoor cabana with timber bi-fold doors that open up on to the pool and spa.

“The gardens are well planned and well maintained, offering lots of greenery without the high maintenance.”

Mr Sarris said the home’s riverfront location offered the opportunity to partake in water activities such as canoeing, fishing or boating.

“Also, with its floodlight tennis court, it offers quite an active lifestyle,” he said. “This property would appeal to a family that enjoys entertaining and loves sports and nature.”

Additional highlights of the property include a four-car garage with a home gym, a temperature-controlled 1500-bottle wine cellar in the basement and a fitted boat or work shed with direct access to the garden and river.

Mr Sarris said the home, while situated close to the city, offered a warm country lifestyle.

“The location of this property is unbelievably peaceful,” he said. “It feels like you are living in the country, but you’re only 10km from the Perth CBD.”
