In this episode, Jon Williams discovers an incredible coastal home in Halls Head.
In 2001 the modest holiday home that once perched on top of a sand dune enjoying commanding ocean views was about to face a monumental transformation. Its owners commissioned acclaimed architect Philippa Mowbray to embark on a design journey that would result in one of the finest north facing ocean front properties in WA.
The brief to renowned boutique builder Harry Kirby was inspired by a life-long love affair with the elegance and style of French Provincial architecture.12,000km away from the original country manors created by Parisian aristocrats, sits this iconic West Australian residence which has been painstakingly crafted to reflect such a heritage.
As you step onto the grounds of this Mediterranean oasis, there is an immediate sense of awe followed by one of belonging. Extensive artisan stonemasonry, authentic Cauzac roof tiles manufactured in France, custom made joinery and stunning hand-crafted ironworks lay testament to the authenticity of the home.
Both the main house and guest house sit proudly on a sprawling 1803m2 of pristine north facing land. Perfectly positioned to enjoy panoramic ocean views with the rare luxury of being sheltered from the prevailing summer breeze.
If there was ever a home that seamlessly merges its heritage with the timeless appeal of our magnificent coastline, surely this would have to be the one.
