The only way to see the powerful architectural lines of this imposing home on the water's edge at Chidley Point is from a boat on the river. The walled family estate is reached via a small private access road. It has no street frontage, no passing traffic and access is electronically controlled.
Completely transformed by a major renaissance that took two years of careful planning, faultless workmanship and world-class design this property now does full justice to the iconic site.
The river frontage of the home is largely limestone and glass, embracing the constantly changing panorama of the Swan River from a terrace, a 25 metre swimming pool and a variety of areas for blissful enjoyment of this spectacular location.
Creative inspiration has used limestone as a dramatic feature in both construction and décor. Evocative archways give a glimpse of lush greenery, huge blocks make a bold statement and expertly built walls with pillars topped with graceful capitals bring a sense of ancient Mediterranean architecture to the property. This works perfectly in a building of these proportions and gives a timeless quality and special character to the home.
The grand entry hall is regal and very impressive. Towering ceilings and a wall of glass frame a magnificent staircase rising from a gleaming golden oak floor inset with squares of white Egyptian marble. On the other side of the glass wall there is a placid reflecting pond and a high wall of natural limestone that becomes a breathtaking backdrop when illuminated at night.
At the first landing, the staircase separates into two, one side leading exclusively to the secluded master suite and the other to three more bedrooms and bathrooms, spacious casual lounge and a home theatre. Formal and informal dining and living areas range along the ground floor - all comfortable and luxuriously appointed with quality features and superb workmanship.
Off the central courtyard, a new two-storey building provides parking for four cars at ground level and upstairs is a completely self-contained one-bedroom apartment.
1 Chidley Way is unique. Not only is it in one of Perth's rarest and most desirable residential position, it is a very private, superbly designed, craftsman-built family home - luxurious, technologically advanced, secure and beautiful.
