ESCARPMENT ICON : Chateau of City Vistas
If there is one property on the Lesmurdie escarpment that is renowned for its powerful presence, unobstructed city views and majestic stature it is '56 Ford Road'. An icon of its era over 40 years ago and still today with its towering Mediterranean personality that commands attention in this highly prized location. Its powerful persona is humbled by the one family who have loved and nurtured this home since the day it was built and is truly reflected in the homes immaculate condition both inside and outside.
Built to last the test of time so to speak the engineering and build quality is nothing short of miraculous. Seamlessly etched into the hillside of a golden 3009m2 escarpment lot this two storey architectural masterpiece boasts a whopping 415m2 under roof and a totally user friendly block once you reach the summit at the end of the winding driveway. Its exterior architecture is bold and timeless mirroring the interior with its super high ceilings, wide hallways and craftsmanship wood work and all though one would expect an ostentatious vibe from such features it actually feels surprisingly homely and inviting.
Custom built to house the larger family, the sprawling floorplan offers the option of 5 or 6 bedrooms, two bathrooms plus a study coupled with a large separate kitchen, lounge and dining room with direct access to the European styled alfresco and a separate additional living room that could be utilised as an activity room or theatre room. A little surprise also exists for the wine buffs with a rustic underground wine cellar ensuring those special vintages are kept cool for those special occasions.
Outside is just jaw dropping and also very practical when it comes to family living and entertaining. To start with a sprawling Mediterranean styled front terrace creates the most amazing place to celebrate and entertain with the odd chilled wine or two emulating just what it would feel like in those Country manors on the Tuscan hillsides however this one offers front row views to our very own Perth City and Swan Riverâ€¦..absolutely irreplaceable! Whilst the rear of the property is suited for the younger family with parents who want that knowing that their kids and pets can run and play in a secure and fully fenced lawned area. Another tier up from the lawn area a huge below ground pool that continues the Mediterranean styled theme with Tuscan styled piers that envelope the entire area along with the small orchard. An extra large double garage with easy turning room, loft and storage room also add to the overall practicality and versatility of this robust and regal package.
This is your opportunity to secure your prime location, prime vistas, prime build at the most prime time! Yes this home will need some modernising in places but now is the time to cease these types of opportunities before they are financially out of reach. To try and replicate this calibre of home and engineering in this finite locale is monetary mind boggling. Don't let this opportunity slip by secure not just a lifestyle but an investment for life too.
