Renowned architect’s coastal creation up for grabs in prized Perth suburb

Bespoke architecture with a modern yet timeless theme meets a relaxed coastal vibe in this Cottesloe showstopper, which spans three levels.

Built in 2015 and designed by architect Tim Wright, Gabby and David Sneddon wanted a home in a quiet street, in contrast to the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and Changi where they had lived for more than 10 years.

The architect-designed home is visually stunning from the street. Picture:

“The brief was very much around clean architectural lines,” Mr Sneddon said of 13 Lillian Street.

“As you enter the front, it’s an open flow.

“As you enter the front, it’s a full open flow to the back and we have used fairly unique materials. One example is travertine, which flows from the front porch basically, the front steps, all the way to the back of the house and all around the outside areas, including the swimming pool.”

The clever floor plan flows from the front to the back of the home’s ground level. Picture:

It is a similar story upstairs where good separation was key, with an area devoted to a kids retreat with a living room and bedrooms overlooking the pool and garden at one end, and the master suite towards the front.

Plenty of natural light, an open flow, and a good utilisation of space were design “must haves”, Mr Sneddon said.

No expense was spared in crafting the dream family home. Picture:

French oak flooring upstairs, Capral Aluminium range commercial grade window and door frames, a below ground trampoline, a three-car garage, and Miele appliances to the kitchen are among the home’s many other highlights.

The north facing four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is set on 492sqm and its internal living space spans 455sqm.

The outdoor spaces are just as impressive as indoors. Picture:

Candie Italiano of Mint Real Estate said the design of the spaces within the home is very clever.

“Architecturally, it’s beautiful to look at,” Ms Italiano said.

The home features four generously sized bedrooms. Picture:

“It’s really hard to get stunning homes all ready to go. On the ground floor, it has a big cavity slider that either opens up the front TV room to the living, dining and kitchen or closes it off. That’s the same with the study/home office.

“I just think it’s a really clever way to connect spaces.”
