A home familiar to many Western Australians

 

This Victorian classic is one of the best-known properties in Peppermint Grove and offers elegant and luxurious living in one of Australia’s most exclusive neighbourhoods.

Built in 1896, St Jude was completely renovated & extended almost a century later under the masterful direction of architect, Marcus Collins.

Today, this superb residence at 28 Keane Street still resonates with all the charm & sumptuous elegance of an earlier time. During the renovation in 1987, the 2 rooms on either side of the entry were retained & are now a spacious office on one side & the master bedroom suite on the other.

 

Elegance throughout

 

A stately gallery leads through the ground floor, past the formal dining & sitting rooms, conservatory & billiard room to the informal meals & living area.

A clever floor plan offers an infinite variety of options to accommodate as many people as required. A family wedding offers testimony to this versatility as it happily accommodated a large number of family & guests throughout the interior & the grounds

Always a winner is the huge, purpose built billiard room complete with a 1930s bar from a Bank in St. George’s Terrace & a fireplace & magnificent etched glass “mermaid” window once featured in a Perth hotel circa 1890’s.

 

Light and airy interiors

 

The modern kitchen is right up to the minute with solid granite bench tops, Miele appliances, three sinks, huge pantry, butler’s pantry & gleaming blackbutt parquet flooring that extends right through the meals & living areas.

 

Ultra-modern kitchen in an historic home

 

A rear 2nd storey has added a children’s wing with 6 bedrooms, 5 with balconies, 3 bathrooms & 2 separate toilets – all well away from the master suite & the downstairs guest room.

Established trees shade the old-world style front garden & enhance the street appeal of this graceful home with its charming wide verandahs. To the rear of the property is a full sized tennis court & swimming pool.

 

Beautiful grounds and poolside relaxation

 

This residence has made a smooth transition into modern times. Quiet & peaceful, close to the river, the ocean, prestigious schools, shops & the café strip at Napoleon Street – this beautiful residence also has one of the most desirable addresses in the western suburbs.
