ORGANICALLY ARCHITECTURAL LARGE FAMILY HOME INSPIRED BY THE SOUTH OF SPAIN
LARGE FAMILY HOME
INSPIRED BY THE SOUTH OF SPAIN
This huge corner site in super-desirable West of Forum Floreat location houses a dramatic architect designed home to accommodate the largest of families. A brainchild of MRB architects, the home was inspired by the contemporary architecture of the Seville Provence in the Andalusia region in the south of Spain.
This inspirational home’s organically curved steel framed rooflines, solid brick construction, rich warm timbers throughout and exquisite indoor-outdoor, flow to myriad courtyards which embrace all manner of outdoors lifestyle pursuits, and are all a nod to the region and the Spanish culinary outdoor lifestyle and family culture.
The outdoors areas of this huge Floreat landholding are segmented and brilliantly manipulated to accommodate all types of outdoor lifestyle pursuits. There is an undercover outdoor lounge with built in fish tank flowing off the main living. (Perhaps a place to store your live crayfish post catch and pre bbq?!) and an undercover bbq courtyard overlooking the long lap pool and spa courtyard under a robust and architecturally proud pergola structure. A long-table luncheon courtyard under the fragrant aroma of mature jasmine vines glows under fairy lights as the day becomes evening. There is a lawned garden for kids to play and a big courtyard with bar tables accessible via two sets of French doors from your main lounge and bar area allowing your soiree or cocktail party guests to spill out into the evening. There are courtyards for kitchen herb gardens and courtyards for quiet contemplation or book reading amongst nature. All courtyards interconnect or separate from one another as required. The two north facing minor bedrooms open onto sunbathed north facing first floor terraces and the master suite opens onto a second privately walled spa courtyard for romantic couple’s experiences.
Flooded with natural light, with large rooms throughout, soaring cathedral ceilings, exquisite family separation, this is a significant home of timeless design.
Chefs will love the huge family kitchen which straddles both entertaining spaces and overlooks the pool and outdoor living. A big breakfast bar makes the space very socially inclusive and great for entertaining. A huge walk-in larder/pantry guarantees you will never be short of produce to whip up for that impromptu get together with friends or relatives.
The family room has dramatic 20-foot ceilings and is bathed in north light. The lounge is centred around a glowing fireplace and has a built-in bar with a subterranean wine cellar. Both living spaces seamlessly interconnect and flow onto outdoor living.
The master suite and study as well as all main living areas are on the ground floor, allowing you to stay in this home well into your twilight years if and when the stairs ever become too much! The study’s location next to the entrance and away from kids’ zones is perfect for working from home and greeting clients. Upstairs, four king sized kids rooms offer wonderful family separation. One of them is even bigger than the others and will double as a third lounge if required. (Current owners use as a gym.)
If you are chasing a one-of-a-kind home of timeless architectural significance to accommodate a large family, in one of The Western Suburbs most beautiful locales, you simply must book a private inspection. You will not find better.
