Gurner House - A Krantz legacy!
A spacious family residence with wonderful Art Deco character and all the space your family requires! This delightful home has all the sophisticated hallmarks of classic 1930s style and was designed with an eye for high functionality by one of Perth's most influential architects.
The original home was designed by renowned architect Harold Krantz, who had a significant impact on Perth's architectural heritage and whose design philosophy made a lasting impression on the face of our city.
Harold was a patron of the arts and a great contributor to the local community, designing the Nedlands Tennis Club. He designed and built the Playhouse Theatre, and founded Australia's first permanent professional theatre group, which later became the WA National Theatre Company.
The 4 bedroom home with study has been beautifully renovated to provide the modern conveniences we all love, with fantastic spaces for entertaining and enjoying life! Offering 3 bathrooms, guest powder room, heated pool, lush gardens and multiple alfresco areas and balconies, it is a spectacular home with a wonderful history!
Enter via the shaded front porch, which features the strong and sensual curve that is so indispensable to the 1930s vibe. From the welcoming front hallway, you can step into the elegant Art Deco lounge room which offers high ceilings, polished jarrah floors and a stylish fireplace. Wander through to the bright and spacious dining room which opens out to its own shady private courtyard.
Open up the bifolds in the large lounge/home theatre to create a seamless link to the protected rear verandah and lush back gardens. This is a peaceful oasis with mature trees, luxuriant garden beds and a sparkling heated pool ready for countless hours of summer fun. Whether you're swinging in the hammock or sunning by the pool, it's paradise!
A stunning alfresco deck is the perfect place to relax and entertain. With timber-lined roof and a gracefully curved roofline that echoes the smooth design of the original wing, it's a wonderful homage to the home's heritage. Roll out the cocktail trolley – it's Mimosa time!
You'll be delighted with the alfresco balconies on the upper level, which provide a sunny retreat with stunning views out over the leafy suburbs and towards the city skyline. The flexible layout of the bedrooms means this is a home that can grow and change with your family.
Situated in a leafy street in the heart of Nedlands close to excellent schools, hospitals, cafes and restaurants, shop, cinema and the Swan River. Walk to the bus stop or ride into the CBD and Kings Park. This is a home that has stood the test of time!
