14 Dilali Road
Architectual Beach House
Designed by leading architect Paul Odden and combining the contemporary chic of burnished concrete and anodised aluminium with the rustic warmth of rammed limestone and timber decking, this striking home has the relaxed, welcoming feel of a modern beach house.
At it's heart, a towering double-height ceiling void frames a superb, open plan kitchen, living and dining area flooded with northern light and overlooking the landscaped rear grounds and salt-water swimming pool.
A wall of north facing glass connects this free-flowing living space with the outdoors, allowing children and guests to move freely via a series of large aluminium sliders. All within easy view of the kitchen, with Caeserstone bench-tops, glass splash-backs, stainless steel appliances and a generous scullery.
Timber decking links the residence to the alfresco meals area and sun-soaked pool. There is also a cleverly screened raised vegetable garden and a fantastic grassed play area for children.
Passive solar design principles abound, with louvered windows welcoming cooling sea breezes in summer. A majestic Plane Tree is thoughtfully positioned to provide welcome shade cover in warmer months and then let the winter sun stream through to warm the home as the seasons change.
The Main bedroom on the first floor is spacious and open, with walk-through robes and a sparkling en suite with double vanity and a deep bath that is ideal for soaking. It enjoys a scenic outlook over the tree-tops of leafy central City Beach to the ribbon of blue ocean beyond.
The three family bedrooms that share this level are all well sized and serviced by a crisp, modern bathroom. There is also a well conceived mezzanine library with bespoke cabinetry.
A games room on the ground floor would sit just as comfortably as a home office, with the adjacent 3rd bathroom and a separate entry also opening up the possibility of its use as a guest bedroom.
With reticulated landscaped gardens, ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning, a security alarm, cosy gas fireplace, ducted vacuum and a double automatic garage (plus an additional roller door secured storeroom) the property has all of the creature comforts.
Beautifully positioned in central City Beach within walking distance of City Beach Primary School, the International School of WA and the vibrant Empire Village Precinct with City Beach Surf Club & restaurants, Wembley Golf Course, Bold Park Aquatic Centre and some of Perth's finest schools all within easy reach. What a fantastic opportunity!
