High-end luxury in the spotlight | West Australian

Feel like living among the Bordeaux mansions at 77 Strickland Street, South Perth – a rare and beautiful three-level house that essentially serves as a wine garden.

With a cellar that can hold over 2,000 bottles of your favorite red, white and sparkling wines, this house is a wine collector’s dream and perfect for entertaining guests with that beloved bottle of Merlot.

The dedicated room is air conditioned and rests at the foot of the house against the outside ground, perfectly positioned to capture a constant and regulated temperature.

Grab a cellar bottle and uncork it in the king-size kitchen, a chef’s holy grail and arguably the cornerstone of 77 Strickland Street.

He said it ties in perfectly with the large dining room and living room and is packed with dozens of high-end features.

“There are actually two kitchens – a wet kitchen and a dry kitchen,” he said.

“The semi-outdoor kitchen has a teppanyaki hob, gas wok burner and induction hotplate.

“There is an additional dishwasher and wine fridge and everything opens to the outdoor dining area.

“The kitchen is huge with a double sink, an extra rinse sink and granite countertops throughout, with durable fronts for all the cupboards.”

On three levels, the 700m² house is wonderfully appointed and caters to the largest of families, with five bedrooms, four bathrooms and space for six cars.

Perfectly designed by Seacrest Homes, the show features a stunning expanse of designer curved high ceilings, a crisp white color palette, and charming polished floors.

The lower level features a huge utility room, fully equipped theater, wine cellar and a characteristic grand staircase that brings you to a second floor designed for the views.

Perth’s city skyline and the Darling Ranges are visible through the windows surrounding the informal living room and games room, while nearby, the open plan kitchen and living room blend into an alfresco dining area with a nearby swimming pool, a cabana and other perspectives on more than 1012 m² of properties.

Melville Water, Perth and the hills are all among the jaw-dropping vistas and complete the high-caliber retreat, although Mr Bourke said the views were just one of many features that day visitors bring in open would like to find out.

“This house is almost the highest point in South Perth, is a quarter acre, and has a large 80,000L pool for your kids to have fun at home,” he said.

“When inspecting this home, be sure to check out the dumbwaiter service from the garage to the top floor.

“They made design arrangements to retrospectively install an elevator if necessary.
