Luxury living and impressive river spectacle beckons in Attadale
There’s a lot to be said for a suburb when locals refuse to leave.
And even more can be gauged about the attraction of an area when a home is consciously designed so its occupants can revel in the riverfront spectacle – whether cooking a meal in the kitchen, laying in bed in the master suite; or relaxing in the spa on the upper balcony.
Designed by a local architect and constructed in 2011 by Imperial Homes, the mind-blowing residence at 1C Page Street, Attadale was curated on the premise of a conscious decision to make the most of the block’s stunning river and city vista.
“What drove the purchase of the block was the view and that was also the force between the architectural design,” said owner Scott Thornett, a long-time Attadale local.
“It’s based to take in views from all levels and a lot of the windows purposely don’t have curtains to let in the maximum amount of light and to see the river and city skyline all the time.
“There’s some neat little touches by the architect in that the height of the spa is raised so you can actually sit in the spa on the balcony and see the city and the river.
“And the master bedroom is the same. You step up two steps to the bed so you can lie in bed and see the river and the city. You wake up and the first thing you see is the river and the city.”
The multi-level home, a picture of grandeur, spaciousness and first-class views, has been listed for sale as the owners look to downsize.
Perched high to take in first-class views of Point Walter and the Swan River, the residence encompasses four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a multitude of indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces.
There are three large entertaining areas as well as two balconies, one upstairs and one downstairs, which both have the ability to seamlessly adjoin to the internal spaces with sliding stacker doors.
Set on an 856sqm block, the ground floor comprises the living spaces, with an open-plan family and dining area, separate “mancave” or theatre/games room and an alfresco terrace with a built-in outdoor kitchen. The bedrooms are positioned upstairs.
Luxury features include the balcony spa, luxury swimming pool overlooking the river, honed travertine flooring and custom cabinetry.
“We made a really conscious decision not to do anything too ostentatious or loud, so neutral floors, neutral benchtops, neutral paint, nothing too crazy on the doors or the door frames – it all flows,” Mr Thornett said. “All of the areas flow into the next – there’s a lot of open spaces.”
Mont Managing Director Matthew Podesta said the home was the ultimate in luxury living and expected it to fetch a price in the high $4 millions.
“This is an incredible property that really speaks for itself,” Mr Podesta said.
“The views are absolutely spectacular and the build itself is second-to-none. The next owner will be extremely fortunate to wake up to this vista every day in a suburb that is not only one of Perth’s most loved and liveable areas, but also one of the property market’s best performers.”
