“WINDARRA SECRET GARDENS”
LUXURIOUSLY PRIVATE FAMILY HOME
WITHIN ARCHITECTURALLY LANDSCAPED ENCLAVE
This premium South Western precinct of Windarra Drive tugs at my heart strings every time I drive around the sweeping boulevard-style arc of the street. Usually, it is at the end of the day on my way home and the beautiful homes are framed by vivid red sunsets and I am struck by how much of a pleasure it would be to live here and drive home to this each evening.
If you too love this precinct, you simply must come and discover this secret walled estate hidden from view! Private and secure behind its perimeter walled compound, a whole unknown world awaits you. Immediately upon stepping through the gated portico entry into this enticing property you are greeted by a suspended deck hovering above and traversing tranquil water features below which flank it on either side. This undercover outdoor hallway has limestone feature pillars and natural timber lined ceilings, is protected from all weather conditions and seductively draws you towards the front entrance door of the home. To your left, an above ground concrete infinity pool cascades into the pond waters below which frame a level expanse of lush green lawns that are surrounded by dense green privacy hedges that flow all the way to the alfresco living and outdoor kitchen at the other end of this sun-drenched North-Easterly facing private garden space which is totally protected from all prevailing weather conditions. Elevated decks beside the pool are home to sun lounges by the water’s edge.
Through the front door and into the home you are greeted by a wide gallery style entrance hall which is perhaps 2.5M wide by 20M long and has a two-storey void to the second floor of your home. To the right, recessed alcoves in the walls are ready made for you to hang your most prized pieces of art with each space lit by professionally installed mood lighting. On the left-hand side of “the gallery”, walls of glass overlook your private gardens and give an endless sense of depth, lush greenery and natural light.
The formal living area is delightfully casual and comprises of a glass fronted temperature controlled, walk-in wine cellar with craftsman fit-out which sits behind a built-in brasserie style timber bar which is open plan to a significantly large living space which currently houses both home theatre room with projector and billiards room (the projector, theatre screen and billiards table can all be included in the sale should you choose). In a private alcove adjacent to this space is a generous walk-in cloak room/mud room and a guest powder room to service downstairs entertaining.
To the rear of the home a family/meals/dining room offers wonderful social interconnectivity for all members of the family to enjoy together as your daily “hang space”. Sliding doors open to a central timber decked lounging area in the rear gardens which is fringed by citrus and garden beds that are perfect for you to create a kitchen garden with herbs aplenty. The kitchen itself is resplendent in fresh seaside whites and features stone tops, and Miele appliances and almost more storage space than is imaginable! To the rear of the kitchen is a scullery with appliance cabinet, second sink and servery windows to your alfresco living and outdoor kitchen area. Adjacent to the scullery is a big laundry with access to rear drying courtyard, creating a highly functional and well-designed kitchen/scullery/laundry combo – with all components of this entire engine-room-of-the-home within easily accessible distance of one another.
Flowing North from this main family living area, big sliding doors create a seamless interaction with the large, undercover, all-weather outdoor alfresco lounging area and outdoor kitchen overlooking the Northeast facing lawns, garden and pool. The alfresco space has room for big lounge and dining furniture and features built-in stainless BBQ, servery from the scullery, granite bench tops, glass fronted refrigeration units and electronically operated, clear, weatherproof blinds which make this space usable on absolutely all occasions.
The first floor of the home is exquisitely zoned into two approximate halves. One for adult living and one for the kids. The master suite is a large north facing room with double sliding doors onto your own private North facing balcony with views overlooking the broad reach of lawn which continue all the way to the infinity pool. The ensuite has a deep, elevated spa bath, twin vanities, big shower recess and separate WC and has a palette in natural timber and stone tones. At the other side of the bedroom is a walk-in robe the size of which you are never likely to fill! Adjacent to the master suite is a large parents retreat with sweeping views spanning across the virgin bushland of Bold Park, The Indian Ocean, Rottnest Island and the iconic Norfolk Island pines of the City Beach Waterfront.
At the other end of the first floor, the kids wing sits behind a soundproof, double French door entry and comprises three king sized minor bedrooms with a central living space and a choice of two bathrooms with the same stone and timber palette of the ensuite.
There is also a triple lockup garage with rear pedestrian access to your back gardens.
Footsteps due-West and accessible in mere minutes is the most exciting activity node of our beautiful 5km long waterfront where the excitement, thriving life and activity of the restaurant and café strip, patrolled beaches and surf clubs, gymnasiums and early morning exercisers, surfers and swimmers of the City Beach Groyne all collide.

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
