Take the long driveway through tall trees and native gardens on this 9.5-acre block to find a stunning Italian home set among a tranquil oasis packed with unique character.
Harcourts Rockingham Sales Consultant Trish Nepia said the one-of-a-kind custom home was designed in the late 70s and built in the early 80s.
“Everything about this property is a standout, from the privacy, space and stunning views to the attention to detail in the fixtures and fittings,” she said.
“The property boasts an executive Italian-influenced design and a timeless family-focused layout featuring private balconies to every bedroom upstairs, archways, solid jarrah doors, frames and skirtings throughout, solid brass knobs and handles from Italy, leadlight
doors and solid Italian stone.”
A grand foyer entrance with double timber front doors, a sweeping staircase, decorative cornices, a chandelier and steps down into the rooms beyond set the tone for the rest of the home.
Welcome guests into your formal lounge with a feature brick wall and fireplace, doors out to the front verandah and the most incredible curved timber and brick bar with accompanying curved built-in seating that will make you feel like you have dropped straight into a James Bond film.
The reverse of the bar is a curved, mirrored wall making a feature in the formal dining room with direct access to the kitchen – perfect for dinner parties.
Just as much thought has been put into the design of the kitchen and casual living areas, with a solid brass flue rangehood over the stove on the island bench and matching flue in the family room through double sliding timber doors with delightful bird leadlight glass inserts.
“This spacious layout allows for entertaining family and friends, as well as outside under the shade of two large alfrescos overlooking a tranquil pool, to relax among the roses, palm trees and manicured gardens and lawns,” Ms Nepia said.
Also providing entertaining and living space is a games room and three studies perfect for hobbies, whether as a music room, a sewing room or a library.
A guest bedroom on the lower floor has a walk-in robe and ensuite, while a bathroom, toilet, laundry, linen cupboard and double garage with internal access complete this level.
Take the carpeted staircase up to a lounge with a bar and access to three separate balconies.
The huge main bedroom has one wing to itself with a sitting area, a walk-in robe and an ensuite with a double vanity, shower and toilet.
Three minor bedrooms are on the other side of the lounge, each with built-in robes and sharing a bathroom with a shower, a bath, a double vanity and a separate toilet, plus there is a walk-in linen cupboard.
“With room for a horse in the front paddock and fun on the quad bikes in the rear, you have space for a hobby farm with veggies and fruit trees,” Ms Nepia said.
“Semi-rural and peacefully placed, no-one can build up at the rear of the block, with the land shire-owned and forever lake views over the bush to the front.
“This ensures the privacy and tranquility of this elevated block, with its beautiful foliage and frequent furry visitors, including deer and kangaroos.”
