A rare opportunity has come to the market to purchase one of the most well-known houses in Australia. Commanding unbroken ocean views and poised mere steps from the beach, “Le Fanu” combines unprecedented luxury with a rich heritage.
Situated on a vast 1492sqm block, the residence was originally built in 1893 in the Federation Queen Anne style as a family home. Over the decades, ownership passed through several hands, including the Anglican Church, before the property eventually fell into disrepair.
Returned to its original glory, it has since been restored to the highest standard by the renowned Zorzi Homes – Perth’s luxury home builder, arguably one of the most difficult and impressive restorations of a heritage home ever seen. No expense has been spared in the meticulous design, which blends grand historic architecture with timeless luxury living and 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom accommodation.
Zorzi Homes received many awards at the 2015 Master Builders WA – Bankwest Housing Excellence Awards including Australian Winner – Alterations and Additions, Best Alterations and Additions and Silver Trowel Award – Excellence in Brickwork
Stunning French provincial influences in the home takes full advantage of its dramatic ocean outlook, encompassing the beautiful coastline and Cottesloe Beach. Within, the home presents a symphony of marble, timber, glass and light. Grand ceilings, soaring columns and marble floors evoke opulence, enhanced by restored original features which ensure “Le Fanu” remains tied to its storied past. With an expansive and versatile floorplan, the residence is spread over 3 levels, all connected by lift access.
