PEPPERMINT GROVE 137 FORREST STREET EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FEATURES Hand-carved marble fireplaces, hand-painted leadlights, Tasmanian Oak parquetry flooring, French marble tiles and antique chandelier light fittings. AGENT Mack Hall & Associates CONTACT Frank Torre 0411 866 550 and 0417 744 600 WEB DETAILS

Period perfection with a modern twist Antique chandeliers and hand-carved door handles grace this home, writes JANE EVANS WHEN a rare and large block complete with a 1940s dwelling became available on Forrest Street, an inspired couple saw an opportunity to build a stately home better suited to the streetscape. The result of their grand vision, with its sweeping verandahs, cast iron lacework and prominent turret, would appear circa 1900s, perhaps even earlier. However, the heritage styled beauty belies its true age – number 137 was constructed in 2008. The grand home, spanning some 1434sqm, was painstakingly designed and completed in four years. Inside and out, the attention to detail has been executed exquisitely. Antique chandeliers were

sourced from around the world and a Cornish craftsman was commissioned to handcarve the door handles. Even the bathroom vanity units were handmade in Tuscany. A custom made ceiling dome above the stairs features a hummingbird motif. It was replicated to match the antique brass door handles on the second floor. Black wrought iron gates, in the

style of Victorian Italianate architecture, enclose the grounds of this gracious residence, which can only be described as aweinspiring on viewing. Guests are well catered for as the home has six bedrooms, five bathrooms and five living areas. There is also a formal lounge and dining, plus a home theatre and spacious office. The luxurious kitchen features hand-painted cabinetry, and was

styled on the designs of the British cabinetmaker, Clive Christian. Stunning landscaped gardens are playground to the owner’s four children, and the rear lawns stretch towards Hurstford Close. Well established oak and magnolia trees provide shade and contrast, and an ideal spot to sit quietly and contemplate life. There are vegetable gardens for the provision of fresh produce, and an outdoor pool completes the

vision for a healthy lifestyle. “We have always owned and been attracted to period homes,â€? said one owner. “The beauty of this home is that we have created the feeling of an old house, but have included modern conveniences. “This is something you simply couldn’t achieve in renovating an original older home,â€? he said. “Quality should last a lifetime,â€? added the co-owner. â–

Unique penthouse a prize pick This penthouse linked to a five-star hotel has many advantages, writes AMANDA RANKIN WHETHER it is breakfast on the street front terrace cafe or sunset drinks in the lobby bar, this penthouse apartment perched atop a five star boutique hotel offers the ultimate in inner city living. Situated within The Outram, a chic and intimate hotel in the heart of West Perth, this is a rare opportunity to own a fully furnished strata title property that can be lived in or put into the hands of the hotel for high rental return. The apartment spans two levels with a private and spacious master suite at the very

top. The suite includes a large and luxurious bathroom with granite benches, an open shower and a deep bath. Two separate built in robes ensure plenty of hanging space plus there is storage in the loft. The second bedroom has its own separate entrance, allowing it to be used as an office or consulting room. It also has a bathroom and robe or storage area. The open-plan living room is spacious and leads to a sunny balcony with an inner City

view over West Perth. The kitchen is surprisingly large and very sleek with granite benches, stainless steel appliances and a generous walk in pantry. All the furnishings are high quality and appropriately contemporary, and included in the package is the use of all hotel facilities and services. Secure parking for one and a storage area are below ground and there is a separate side entrance for residents who don't wish to enter through the hotel foyer. Positioned in the heart of West Perth, it is

an easy stroll to restaurants, cafes and Kings Park, and as a bonus the bus stop for the free city CAT is right at the front door. â–

Blended with personality A sleek and sophisticated home for the modern family. By JANE EVANS WITH three little girls, the owners of this striking contemporary house had their work cut out in creating a home that was both practical and stylish. But they succeeded. In the leafy surroundings of Shenton Park, this double-storey home blends perfectly into the treelined street while standing out from the typical older-style homes of the area. The home features clean lines with rich, warm finishes and an attractive and inviting facade. A landscaped front garden features two open, timber-decked patios; one an entrance into the home and the other a private retreat off the master bedroom. Through the solid timber front door, the home unfolds, bouncing light, space and beauty effortlessly. Off the foyer, the master bedroom is generous with its own lounge area and spacious walk-in robe.

Wooden floorboards flow from the front door through to the central living area, which features a galley-style kitchen with marble bench tops, Smeg stainless steel appliances and a Miele dishwasher. The dining and lounge area has bifold doors that allow the space to integrate with the outdoors. A timber-lined alfresco area with a built-in barbecue, granite bench tops and american oak cabinetry makes entertaining a delight. There is also a plunge pool with a striking stonecladded water feature and miniature frangipani trees on either side. An added feature of this area is a video camera, allowing children in the pool to be watched by adults on the internal televisions. The four minor bedrooms are on the second level of the home where there is also a large theatre or activity room for the children. ■
