Top of the Hill
An opportunity to acquire one of Western Australia’s most historic and iconic properties along with arguably the best view of any property in Perth. This magnificent property sits proudly on ‘the hill’ and offers stunning, almost 360 degree views from Rottnest island to the west back to the city and river to the north as well as sweeping views back to the hills in the east.
The stunning property combines beautiful traditional materials and craftsmanship in the original home and a high quality contemporary finish throughout the extension.
Situated on a sizable 1228sqm land holding. The residence over at over 600sqm has been architecturally converted and redeveloped over time, with the main focus on maximizing the stunning unbridled views from all levels and rooms, and restoring the property to its former glory whilst adding a modern flair to create an enchanting and comfortable home.
The extension consists of the kitchen, informal living and dining, whilst the original residence houses formal living, library, cellar, bathrooms and bedrooms. The extension flows effortlessly into the existing bones of the home, and both have stellar entertaining options that maximise the unrivalled vista.
The history and charm are overwhelmingly apparent upon viewing this spectacular home, and the location and unhindered views are second to none. Recently awarded the State Heritage Award for Renovation, the time and effort spent in restoring and improving this stunning residence have not gone unnoticed. Its prestige and distinctiveness are timeless.
