It’s very rare to come across a home that not only has views of the city, and is a stone’s throw from the Swan River, but also has a magnesium pool, meditation deck…and a cheeky black slate cigar deck?
Where do we begin? Built in 1982, this unique corner block is a treasure trove of unexpected and playful quirks. There are multiple decks with views of the Perth Hills and even Optus Stadium, and if that’s not enough, there are already plans in place to build a 360-degree viewing deck, for panoramic views of Perth and the surrounding hills.
From an architectural standpoint, the house is a visual delight. Designed across a generous 600sqm block, the house is full of quirks with distinctive round design features and lofty ceilings. There’s an abundance of natural light, thanks to the 12 double-glazed windows that are 2 metres each.
In true Postmodern fashion, this Maylands abode is every bit as captivating on the inside as it is on the outside. Sculptural forms and a striking fusion of architectural styles, combine to create a unique charm.
As you step inside, you’ll discover a series of distinct living zones that are spread across three levels. The uppermost level hosts the luxurious master bedroom, a stylish study, living area and dining area, complete with brass fireplace and retro feature pendant lights.
Meanwhile, the while section boasts two additional bedrooms, a cosy lounge, a well-appointed kitchen, and spacious dining area featuring plush carpet.
Views are a constant companion in this home, but the pièce de resistance is the formal lounge, which boasts vistas towards the east and the west. Here, you can soak up the sunset, plus Optus Stadium, and the Perth Hills at night.
You can’t go past the kitchen and dining area, adorned with the original black and white Postmodern tiles. Imagine yourself hosting gatherings with friends and family, enjoying not only a well-equipped bar but also ample room for guests both indoors and out.
At the core of the residence is the kitchen and dining area, which serves as the primary hub of the
home, with direct access to the inviting deck and pool.
Did we mention that his home also has a private gym? There’s the rejuvenating magnesium swimming pool, as well as a separate gym and attached study space. Throw open the bi-fold doors, and you have direct access to the pool area and a cosy winter fire pit, so you can enjoy the outdoor areas all year round.
If you’re more of a spa person, then you’re in luck. In the master suite is an Olympic-size spa, along with a chic marble ensuite, and a conveniently built-in beauty station. With its lofty ceilings and a private balcony, the master suite is truly a haven of comfort and luxury.
Storage abounds in this home, with built-in wardrobes in all three bedrooms, ample storage in the laundry, and a discrete storage area tucked beneath the stairs, ensuring that everything has its place in this splendid Maylands retreat.
As for the location, this home is nestled in the quiet vicinity of De Lacey Reserve, where the river is only 400 metres away and the Maylands Golf Course a leisurely 700 metres away, making this area highly sought-after.
Not to mention the convenience of being close to the main Maylands strip, and within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of the city, Mt Lawley, and Bayswater.
