“MANOR HOME” – 3 HOUSES IN 1
WAREHOUSE CONVERSION INSPIRED
A wonderful example of late 1960’s architecture in the Australiana style by Peter Parkinson architect. Situated a short stroll from the shoreline, in the “Bold Park Precinct” at the far southern end of City Beach, this gorgeous pocket of the suburb feels as if the majestic Tuarts of the Bold Park forest never ended and the houses were simply fitted in under the canopy. This home occupies an enviable hillcrest location on a north-facing slope amongst the treetops and bird song with lush green surround aspect through every window.
One of only two homes in City Beach which were approved under the briefly available “Manor House” amendment, this architectural classic underwent a wholesale renovation and extension by architects Maxine Canning to create three self-contained semi-detached homes on the one title. Serendipitously, Maxine worked with Peter Parkinson at the time of construction of the original home which brought a wonderful synergy and continuity of design to the project. Blending high-quality modern architecture, remnant earthen clay brick, exposed Jarrah staircases and beams, with sharp contemporary architectural hardware, this is a striking property offering the perfect balance of history and modernity.
With this colour and texture palate the three dwellings could best be described as follows:
1. Main dwelling; not dissimilar in feel to a heritage church conversion. Showcasing soaring apexed cathedral ceilings flooding the home with natural light, a mezzanine library/home office, a master suite plus two guest suites with their own ensuite. Designed to integrate, intertwine with and preserve the remnant Tuarts, this home is sundrenched in north light and opens outwards onto a timber decked courtyards and onto rear lawns and gardens via a wall of bi-folds. Also features a double lock-up garage, subterranean wine cellar and luxuriously appointed kitchen with Gaggenau appliances.
2. Dwelling two; is not unlike your classic Surry Hills or Paddington terrace home with living, laundry/second bathroom and kitchen all on the ground floor flowing out onto a north-facing timber decked courtyard and two bedrooms upstairs sharing a second family bathroom.
3. Dwelling three; is on the eastern end and has an open plan living area with exposed beams on the ground floor and a design reminiscent of a New York loft apartment conversion in an old warehouse building. There are two wonderful light-flooded bedrooms on the first floor sharing a family bathroom. A convenient servery window from the laundry to the courtyard deck area allows you to fill the trough with ice and drinks and entertain to your heart’s content.
All three homes are of solar passive design capturing north light where ever possible and employing breezeways on each of the front doors to enable natural cooling via the Fremantle Doctor. All three of the different home designs reference and “talk to” one another beautifully.
At the bottom of the garden is a communal alfresco kitchen which opens to a garden dining room under an awning of trained green vines; a location in which the current family of owners have enjoyed many a wonderful nights entertaining, including a fabulous Christmas luncheon. A communal bathroom to the rear of this facility caters for garden and alfresco entertaining.
Where in the world would you rather live in these interesting times than this forested hillside allotment in leafy evergreen City Beach only footsteps to the vast virgin forests of Bold Park adjacent and a short stroll to the expansive wide shorelines, crashing waves and fresh ocean breezes of the City Beach Oceanfront at the bottom of the hill?
The epitome of multi-generational design this home allows three different generations of your family to live completely independently in self-contained homes on the one large corner quarter-acre lot. If ever a products time was right for the zeitgeist it is this property now! What better way to approach the current times in which we live than to move all generations of your family to a healthy coastal atmosphere where you can all be in close contact and enjoy compound style family living but within which your older generations have an easy ability to completely self-isolate in their own dwelling not far from your caring and watchful eye.
A truly one of a kind property that would no longer be possible under current building guidelines.
Life is good here….Welcome to City Beach!

Discover city beach
The juxtaposition of being the most central and closest beachside suburb to the heart of Perth City, yet abundant in nature, greenery and expansive wide open spaces is at the core of the allure of City Beach. Almost completely surrounded by a green belt, it is cocooned by an amazing natural buffer of Swanbourne Army Reserve, Cottesloe Golf Club, Bold Park/Perry Lakes/Reabold Hill, The Wembley Golf Course, the sparkling Indian Ocean and internally interwoven by a network of parks many of which meander all the way from one end of the suburb to the other without even crossing a road. City Beach is a suburb like nowhere else.Suburb Profile
