Zokai House

39 John Street, COTTESLOE WA 6011


Art and Architecture – Together in the heart of Cottesloe

This beautiful stone home is a modern classic created by the architect Neil Cownie, who references the environment and local materials with a sustainable solution ideally suited to the human condition. His deep understanding of his clients brief and the search for a home of such fine and understated quality has seen this magnificent home come to fruition in the beating heart of Cottesloe.

This very private home with its handsome frontage enjoys 632 sqm of land with rare two way laneway making access convenient. This home boasts up to 5 bedrooms and three bathrooms, the master suite with its own private living area features a library and raked timber ceiling all opening up to a private northern balcony. There are 2 other bedrooms and a bathroom on this upper level. Downstairs there is a light-filled entry with two more rooms and a bathroom to the east, a cellar, and a capacious living and dining room.

The dining room looks out to the peacefully landscaped courtyard garden and features a stunning neon art installation that may be bought separately. With a segway of morning and afternoon light cascading across the rear family and kitchen area, its raked ceiling gives this room a commanding yet nurturing presence. Between this area and the huge garage is a convenient fitted study also enjoying a garden outlook. Externally there is an Alfresco BBQ area with dining and seating for the family. This entertaining area enjoys full northern sun and protection from the sea breeze.
The level of detail internally is typified by the timber joinery throughout, the wardrobes, shelves and detailed fit-out is a true masterclass in the art of building.

A home of generous proportions and a home of generous spirit.
Whilst the pace of life may be hectic this is truly a home to nurture you and yours now and into the future.
