Building sites with views over our stunning coastline are in high demand, and if you’re lucky enough to secure a large, elevated site like this home’s in sought after North Beach, it commands a residence that is well and truly worthy of its location. Engaging multi-award winning Spadaccini Homes for the build, the owners were already assured of an outstanding outcome, but this spectacular residence not only exceeded the client’s expectations, it also impressed industry peers, seeing it awarded the 2022 HIA COLORBOND® Steel WA Home of the Year and the prestigious Master Builders Association National Home of the Year.
With sleek, contemporary lines, the home’s exterior is refined from every angle, and features expansive walls of glazing, designed to maximise the stunning ocean vista. Built over three levels, with multi-generational living in mind, this spectacular residence incorporates over 1170sqm of luxury living and features a free standing double storey, self-contained apartment at the rear of the home for long-term guests.
The entrance to the property sets the tone for the calibre of luxury that can be expected inside this award-winning masterpiece. Arriving at one of two gatehouses, guests continue over custom-made tumbled basalt cobblestones until they reach the impressive entry with oversized glass pivot door and custom-made semi-precious stone door handle.
Inside, the inspired material selection of stones, marbles and beautifully crafted custom-made cabinetry impressed HIA judges – remarking that the home oozed quality and style. Whilst the tone is one of understated luxury, with clean lines and a neutral palette that allows the azure blue of the Indian Ocean to take centre stage, the finishes such as extensive use of marble, including black marble doorframes throughout, make it apparent that this is a home of the highest calibre.
Fully automated, this outstanding residence also features the latest in home innovation, with lights, appliances, blinds, CCTV, audio and temperature control systems all manageable via touch screens throughout the home, with remote access available whilst the owner is away.
An incredible sculptural staircase named the ‘Stairway to Heaven’ extends over three levels. Embellished with individual glass blades that reflect and refract light, and adorned with a 9-metre-long pendant the stairwell becomes a space of visual wonder. For added accessibility, the home also has a lift shaft which again is no ordinary means to get from one level to the next, the back drop is fully dressed in large format porcelain tiles with solid brass strip detailing.
Requesting a home that was timeless and felt like a 5 star resort, the client’s brief has certainly been met, but nowhere is this more evident that in the sumptuous master-suite. Generously proportioned with room for a lounge, the bedroom features floor to ceiling glass doors, opening onto an expansive terrace that allows the owners to arise to the beautiful ocean vista.
Larger than all the bathrooms combined in an average sized home, the luxurious en-suite again features extensive marble and custom cabinetry. A free standing marble bath, elevated on a marble platform provides the ultimate place to relax, unwind with a glass of champagne and watch the sunset over the ocean.
The master robe makes a statement all of its own. Featuring layers of lacquer work from floor to ceiling, extensive custom cabinetry, including accommodation for 200 pairs of shoes and dedicated handbag storage, the space is decadent to the core – feeling and looking like the interior of a designer boutique.
The lower level of the home provides everything you’d expect of a luxury resort, including a fully equipped gym with kitchenette and laundry that looks out over the mosaic tiled swimming pool through to the ocean beyond, a traditional and infrared sauna, a steam room and an outdoor shower. There is also a showroom quality 7 car garage that includes recessed lighting over each car space and comes complete with a dream workshop with custom built cabinetry.
Every aspect of this modern, architectural property, including the 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom main residence and the self-contained apartment has been carefully considered and chosen with quality, durability and low maintenance in mind, resulting in a home that really does offer everything, space, functionality and the ultimate luxury coastal lifestyle.
