CASA DEL MONTE “HOUSE ON THE HILL” INCREDIBLE OCEAN VIEWS
CASA DEL MONTE
“HOUSE ON THE HILL”
INCREDIBLE OCEAN VIEWS
Fall in love when you inspect this rustic hilltop villa in Italianate style featuring sun-soaked northern courtyard, large rear gardens with mini citrus orchid and herb and chili garden, subterranean wine cellar, below ground pool, and commanding ocean views from all levels.
As its name suggests this house sits on top of the “mountain”. Built and retained for himself by the original developer of 10, 12, 14 and 16 Warri Rd, he retained the villa at the top of the hill due to its commanding ocean views which are so elevated that you can watch people walking along the shoreline and waves breaking on the beach. Additionally, they are so expansive that they take in the “Bay of Islands” Rottnest, Carnac, and Garden as well as the Gage Roads Shipping Lane, the Cottesloe Pines and the 24 hour activity at both Fremantle and Rockingham Ports which illuminate your night time views. He also retained this villa for himself because it was the only property he had ever known in City Beach to have such amazing ocean views yet be so protected from any highway noise…you can stop and listen anytime you like in Casa del Monte and all you can hear is the ocean breezes rustling the leaves of the trees and the sound of waves crashing on the beach. As the developers own, this was the only one of these 4 green title villas to have such a large landholding (443sqm), a swimming pool and a subterranean wine cellar. Its additional space allows vast walled sundrenched courtyards for entertaining, gardening and general outdoors pleasure. 2 separate sets of garaging allow vehicle access from both Peasholm Street and Warri Road.
Internally, the 4 original bedrooms plus study are now set up as 3 suites each in their own wing of the home and all serviced by their own bathroom. 2 of the suites are on the ground floor (one with its own separate office/sitting area). The fourth bedroom is currently used as a cocktail room where you can enjoy a sunset drink prior to barbequing and dining in the adjacent courtyard. The mastersuite holds pride of place on the top floor and features a huge parent’s retreat with magnificent ocean views, warming winter fireplace, mini bar/kitchenette and opens onto 2 huge ocean view roof top terraces. Modernised kitchen features character white washed, timber lined ceilings, granite stops and a contemporary free standing Smeg stove in traditional style. Its is open plan to a big formal dining area suitable for entertaining on a grand scale and wining and dining your guests. This truly is the social heart of the home. The kitchen meals is open plan with the formal lounge which has atmospheric and indulgent styling more akin to the drawing room of a palazzo! This opens onto the private oasis of the walled swimming-pool-court to the east and enjoys striking ground floor ocean views to the west.
An atmospheric home that is perhaps more likely to rekindle memories of your recent holiday to Positano than of City Beach. It is furnished in classic, Italianate style and provides an exotically indulgent living experience enveloped by ocean views, which simply have no peer.

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 Bold Park, the Golf course, Army Reserve and 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
