Luxury and Space in Exclusive Location
Amongst tall trees in an exclusive pocket of Claremont sits this spacious 5/6 bedroom home, a perfect slice of the Hamptons. Discreetly tucked behind a tree lined wall, this private sanctuary perfectly captures the essence of the striking summer holiday homes Long Island is well known for.
The owners brief to their architect was to create a home with a relaxed, always on holidays feel. The result is simply superb.
Through the front gate, the majestic all-white façade with balconies, covered cabana and day-bed lined pool create a first impression of effortless luxury. With 5 bedrooms plus a study (or 6 bedrooms), four living areas and two outdoor entertaining areas, this spacious home truly is a private retreat to be celebrated and shared with family and friends.
Inside there is an abundance of light, with tall French doors, high ceilings and American Oak flooring creating a relaxed openness, while every white painted jarrah window reveals a view: to the west the pool, to the north and south, trees and to the east, through large French doors, a beautiful undercover patio, the perfect spot for relaxing lunches and late afternoon teas. The design of the home maximises glorious sunlight, whilst capturing the lovely cross breezes on summer days.
With so many spaces to enjoy, the difficulty will be in choosing where to spend the day. A lounge/TV room in the centre of the home connects to a bright dining room overlooking the back patio, while a sunny studio off the lounge offers an ideal bar, utility room or library. Off the dining room is a relaxed sitting space overlooking the kitchen and pool, a lovely place to lounge away the hours.
The bright, airy kitchen with high ceilings and French windows and doors opening to the pool is a sun-drenched haven. A large stone bench and breakfast bar create an informal dining space while ample preparation room and well planned storage ensures home chefs will delight in cooking here.
An incredible home for entertaining, the rear patio, pool and cabana will ensure every event is masterfully accommodated. Designed for the avid entertainer, this is the scene for countless dinners, pool parties and celebrations. It would be impossible not to share this home with others. Further elevating this property is the Ozone pool (one of a handful in Perth that utilises bubbles instead of chemicals/salt) and the access to the riverfront and accompanying grassed area and gardens behind the property.
A bedroom occupies the south west corner downstairs, with double doors to the side of the house and another bedroom/study overlooks the pool at the front of the home. Upstairs, it is as if the home is floating on the treetops, with leafy oak trees and lush gums framed through every window. The generous master bedroom opens to a balcony overlooking the pool, with a sunny en suite to the east.
An additional living area in a lounge outside the master bedroom provides a secluded hideaway from activity downstairs, while a loft, accessed via a drop down ladder, offers a handy space for anything from a sewing room and art studio to a music room.
There are 3 additional bedrooms upstairs, one with a stunning en suite that would be at home in any luxury hotel. All upstairs bathrooms feature baths and all tapware throughout is Nicolazzi polished nickel.
This home will perfectly accommodate families of all age ranges with its expansive footprint and flexible layout and is ideal for those looking for room to grow as their children do. The only thing finer than the house itself is its incredible location. The sparkling waters of Freshwater Bay sit directly behind the property, Christ Church, MLC, PLC and St Hilda’s are all within walking distance, both the Claremont Quarter and Napoleon Street are a quick five minute drive down Stirling Hwy, and the beach is less than two kilometres away.
This impressive Hamptons home in an exclusive pocket of Claremont will offer an enviable lifestyle only few can enjoy.
