Contemporary Retro Living

Renowned designer McQuade Matthews and builder Nick Del Borrello have created a magnificent fusion of a yesteryear facade and contemporary interior in this 2004 built masterpiece. Crafted over two levels, the restoration brick exterior, with gable pediment, does not prepare you for the modern finishes and conveniences that await you inside. Everything about this home is imposing.

Polished concrete is incorporated into both the nautical themed staircase, with marine grade stainless steel balustrading, and the floors throughout both levels. Downstairs an enormous study with a wide wall of glass and cedar shutters can easily double as a either a fourth bedroom, theatre room, or additional living area whilst two large bedrooms, both with walk in robes, are serviced by a contemporary bathroom adorned with glass mosaic features walls, polished concrete tops and enameled basins.

Upstairs, open plan living is the theme. The dining and living areas with a separate powder room are spacious and accentuated by cathedral ceilings with Oregon trusses and mini orb cladding whilst bi fold doors open onto the sizeable balcony with built in BBQ, sink and stainless steel bench. The cafe style kitchen which overlooks these outstanding entertaining areas is undoubtedly, one of the highlights of this residence. Stainless steel benches and quality European appliances are complemented by beech paneled cupboards and solid blackbutt flooring. The floating bulkhead houses additional lighting and provides yet another feature to what is already an extensive list.

Two courtyards, one with a 12 metre wall fountain visible through expansive floor-to-ceiling windows provide light, cool and calm,

The master suite is also upstairs and provides space and comfort at the end of the day. Cedar shutters, large his and hers walk in robes, and a laundry chute are but some of the "I wants" provided. Leading through to the ensuite, the earlier theme of glass mosaic tiles is continued, although this time with cathedral ceilings, twin basins, twin shower and bidet.

Located in Subi Centro, this unique home is within convenient reach and an easy walk to train and bus routes, both major supermarkets and Subiaco’s shops, restaurants and bars (no need to wait for a cab, just walk home).
Schools, both primary the new Perth High School campus and Perth Modern are close, just a short drive to drop off or walk for older students. Keep yourself fit at Lords Recreation Centre with swimming pool, sports courts, gym and fitness classes, just 300 metres away.
