A noble address

This regal residence couldn’t be on a more appropriately named street in East Perth.

The massive timber front doors wouldn’t look out of place on a mediaeval manor house. Soaring, gloriously ornate ceilings, marble floors and cute Juliet balconies add a da Vinci touch to the four-bedroom/four-bathroom abode.

My jaw hung slackly from the moment I stepped into the vast entry hall, to be confronted by a white marble staircase and lovely black wrought iron balustrade leading skyward.

There’s a guest suite and study on the ground floor, a wine cellar under the stairs and a sauna in the massive four-car garage.

Almost dancing up the stairs of this palace, I was delighted to discover a grand piano in the dining area of the formal lounge/dining space.

The recessed and ornate ceiling, with its many swirls and curls, border on the rococo, and lovely timber French windows lead out to a street-facing balcony.

Next stop the less formal kitchen/living/dining area, although “less formal” fails to conjure the opulence of this space.

The kitchen is huge, with cool granite benchtops, including on the vast island/breakfast bar.

There’s a guest suite and study on the ground floor, a wine cellar under the stairs and a sauna in the massive four-car garage.

Along with smooth-sliding drawers there’s a spacious walk-in-pantry and there are twin Bosch ovens.

The commodious living area is made even more spacious with bifold doors onto a terrace alfresco area, with city views.

You’ll find a bedroom fit for a king and queen on the second floor.

The royal toilette of centuries past involved a lot of courtiers, including an official bottom wiper, considered a good job as the wiper had the king’s ear, as well as his nether regions.

There’s room for the whole entourage in the main bedroom’s semi-open ensuite, with its marble floor and marble double vanity, huge shower, and deep spa bath.

The gentleman of the bedchamber is well provided for in this palatial home, with a spacious, open loft bedroom on the third floor, with its own ensuite and balcony.

Keeping an eye on the kingdom is easy from this East Perth address, with the city mere minutes away.

And when it comes to being right royally entertained there’s no shortage of amusements, cafe and restaurants nearby.
