AND the Oscar goes to…this luxurious Attadale home.
With six bedrooms and four bathrooms, it has just about everything you would find in a Hollywood mansion – pool, games room, gym, lift and much much more.
It definitely falls under the category of resort living and that feeling is reinforced as the automatic gate slowly opens to let you into this private and grand residence.
There are some gorgeous polished wooden floors in this property, enhancing the sense of space and lightness of touch.
In fact nothing has been overdone with the owners focusing on clean, modern lines with littles flashes of opulence here and there.
I like the huge corner kitchen; it’s slightly unusual with a semi-circular benchtop/breakfast bar and a vaulted ceiling.
There’s plenty of storage space with the white cupboards and drawers contrasting nicely with the sleek stainless steel appliances.
I could imagine former Oscar- winner Anthony Hopkins enjoying a glass of Chianti and some fava beans here.
Off to the side is a table for casual meals, with another room and formal dining table just a few steps away.
So you have a choice of meal-time locations, which is great if you’re entertaining and have older kids who want to eat on their own.
The sheltered alfresco is worthy of an Oscars after-party with a luxurious spa in one corner and a fully-equipped kitchen with pizza oven in the other.
And after you’ve had a slice of truffle-laced pizza in the spa, open the bi-folds and dive straight into the outdoor pool for a refreshing dip, clutching your gold statue.
It really is a wonderful area with some gold fairy lights on the ceiling adding a little touch of the magic from the movie Encanto.
Split over two levels there are seperate living areas which is great if you have older kids or family/guests coming to stay.
Being a middle-aged man, I especially like the “man cave” or “x cave”, whatever they call it these days, which has plenty of room for a pool table, bar and sports memorabilia on the wall.
The owners didn’t skimp on technology in this truly “smart home” with everything controlled virtually through an app on your phone, like a scene from a sci-fi movie.
“Siri, get me an ice-cold beer and a potato sack full of chips.”
There are too many amazing features to mention in this house but it includes a lift, ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning, ducted vacuum system, security alarm, CCTV and a video intercom system, and solar panels.
Situated on an 801sqm block on Moreing Road, it’s just up the hill from Point Walter, where I’ve spent many a lazy Sunday afternoon with the family, enjoying the panoramic views and well-kept foreshore.
With a double lock-up garage and total room for five cars, there’s plenty of space for a boat and trailer.
I reckon I would feel like a slightly over-weight Gerard Butler living here, it’s def got a touch of the Hollywood magic.
