Once ready to retire for the night, the homeowner heads upstairs via the floating marble staircase (or the lift) and makes their way to the upper level. The two bedrooms at the rear of the top floor each enjoy a walk-in robe and share a Jack and Jill style bathroom – perfect for teens and young adults or visiting guests.
The master suite, which fills the remaining half of the final floor, is a grand example of clever design and indulgence.
‘The master bedroom is a real suite,’ Paul says. ‘[It’s] targeted at a more mature couple whose kids are out doing their own thing – it’s all about them now.’
First impressions might elicit questions about the built-in headboard in the middle of the room, but Paul says: ‘the idea is that you wake up and see that beautiful view straight away’.
That view being a 180-degree landscape of the city, from iconic King’s Park to Western Australia’s ‘home of cricket’ – the WACA grounds.
With a dressing room fit for a monarch behind the bed, the mirrored robes reflect the stunning skyline so that wherever you are in the room, you feel the full presence of the location and what it brings to the home.
Finally, set behind the generous dressing space is a vast ensuite which centres on a large tub – the perfect way to end the day.
