PALATIAL COUNTRY RESIDENCE IN PERTH'S NORTH
Sitting proudly in its own 10 acres of rural land is this impressive Country Home of epic proportions. Safe to say there is nothing like this anywhere in Perth, or more likely anywhere in Australia.
Located 17 kilometres from the Perth CBD, 17 Kilometres from Hillarys Boat Harbour on the Indian Ocean; 17 kilometres from Perth Airport - the location matches the brilliance of this one-of-a-kind piece of Australian real estate. Honestly, how can you find 10 acres of land for sale within 17 kilometres of one of Australia's major capital cities? Not easy. But in 10 - 15 years, 10 acre lots close to a capital city will be even rarer. And this outstanding opportunity has come to the market for the very first time and it will not last. Don't hang back as regret lasts a long time.
Built as a multiple-family residence, it is designed to boast approximately 17 bedrooms and approximately 13 bathrooms. Spread over 3 floors, plus loft accommodation, the home is multi-faceted and has sitting rooms, outdoor entertainment zones, theatre rooms, games rooms, formal and informal spaces. This could be the biggest home ever built in Western Australia - who can say it is not?
The buyer of this amazing property will need to bring in finishing trades such as carpentry, plastering and tiling in order to finish off much of the home, which to this point in time is an unfinished project of incredible proportions.
Whilst designed and built as a family residence, it is envisaged that the property is ideal for 'adaptive re-use'. It can be adapted for other uses and expressions of interest are invited that might adapt the home for community uses, educational pursuits, bed and breakfast and other options. The General Rural zoning in the City of Swan promotes uses that are compatible with the rural character of the landscape, however many usage options are available for this property subject to negotiation with the City of Swan and interested buyers are encouraged to contact the City planning staff to have these discussions. Subdivision of the 10 acres is not currently an available option but may become available at some time in the future. Any subdivision proposal would be subject to Western Australian Planning Commission approvals. Permission for alternative uses within the General Rural Zone will be subject to approvals from City of Swan.
Bed and Breakfast and Rural pursuits are already permitted uses in the Zone. Examples of alternative uses capable of being approved (subject to negotiation with the City) could include:
Adaptive Re-use is an attractive proposition given that areas of the home are unfinished and therefore can be adapted to new uses as required.
