Cottesloe Or Countryside Château? This Luxe Home Has Plenty Of French Charm
Ooh la la! We’ve had a peek inside this très chic home that’s just hit the market thanks to our mates at Crib Creative – and we’ve got to say, we’re in love…
Situated in that (even more) well-heeled part of Cottesloe, sandwiched between the river, the beach and Peppy Grove – you’ll nevertheless feel like you’re transported to a countryside château in Provence.
A wealth of considered details lend a sense of romance and carefree luxury to the home – paired with limestone cladding, travertine flooring and sand-washed walls for a timeless, rustic appeal.
As you enter through the ornate timber front door, you’ll be greeted by the sun-drenched corridor that links the front and rear of the home. Also at the front of the home is the first of three bedrooms. East facing windows allow for beautiful morning light – or close the charming timber shutters seen throughout the home.
This corridor wraps around an especially delightful covered alfresco dining area. Flowing into the entryway as well as into the rear of the house, it’s the perfect setting for your next relaxed Sunday family lunch – particularly with the provision to install your own pizza oven.
As the sun sets and temperatures drop, you can head inside to get warm by the cosy fireplace, or settle in under the dining table’s chandelier.
Continue on and you’ll find yourself in the quaint, spacious kitchen. While it has its fair share of whimsy, it’s also resoundingly practical, with a walk-in pantry, deep farmhouse sink and perfectly-matched, brand-new, premium Bertazzoni cooker and oven.
Upstairs, the second bedroom replicates the one below it – although it also boasts a pair of Juliet balconies to take advantage of that morning light. Adjacent, a reading nook and balcony also makes use of that delightful outlook over the front courtyard.
The real star of the show though? That primary bedroom suite. Absolutely opulently spacious, a private courtyard looks to the rear of the house, with a gorgeously generous dressing room leading into the large, light-filled ensuite.
