A Summerhayes Masterpiece.
You will feel like you’ve entered colonial Singapore the moment you pass through the gates of this gracious property. With an exquisitely extended bungalow and lush sweeping gardens surrounding a fabulous over-sized swimming pool, this significant family home sits across two Titles on 1,786sqm on top of exclusive Claremont Hill.
Built on the former “Grange Estate” and designed by distinguished local Architect Reg Summerhayes during his Inter-War tropical colonial period, this home has old world charm reminiscent of a Singapore black and white. Generous proportions are a feature of the residence which showcases wide verandahs, a traditional entrance hallway with a Jarrah staircase, traditional fireplaces and high ceilings.
The original bungalow was extended by Reg’s renowned architect son Geoffrey Summerhayes in 1997 to offer substantial accommodation including 5-6 big bedrooms, 4 modern bathrooms, a grand formal living room, a sunny kitchen and north-facing informal living wing, a self-contained pool house and a 5-car garage and store.
The wonderfully central Claremont Hill location means this home is just a few hundred metres from Swanbourne Village, local and Private Schools, and Jasper Green Reserve; only minutes from the Claremont Quarter, Cottesloe Shops, the beach and the river; and a short trip into the CBD by car, rail or bike.
We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to live in this unparalleled family property in this envied and tightly held enclave.
