Rising three floors up in the air, this modern home in one of Perth’s Australian suburb is a brainchild of Australia-based studio Urbane Projects. Designed to impress and offer the base for a modern lifestyle, this stunning contemporary family home was built after tearing down two adjacent homes. An inviting infinity edge pool lines the elevated corner block and entrance to the elegant interiors. A dream home for the family who commissioned the architecture studio, the luxurious home is not only customized to the owner’s needs, but also gathers views from its blessed riverside location.

Built for both the present and the future (the family has teenagers that will inherit this masterpiece), the five bedroom and seven bathroom residence caters for everyone in the family, including the children’s friends when they come over: “A games room as well as a home theatre offer spaces for the children to entertain their friends, while parents have an upstairs bar and lounge, as well as a fully enclosable alfresco lounge and dining with its own bar, all set against river views. The hotel-like parents’ retreat has a wraparound balcony and views from the bed and ensuite that stretch across the neighborhood to the river and city beyond.

Beautifully put into play, the floor plan of this luxury Australian home was molded by the owner’s needs: “A 3m tall ebony-stained jarrah door opens onto the entrance foyer. A wall of windows overlooks a reflection pond, mature frangipani tree and sculpture set against a backdrop of a glass face rendered wall. In the entry is one of the home’s most spectacular features – the staircase. A feat of engineering, the staircase runs through all three storeys and features a suspended steel structure with oak treads stained a rich Japan black that complement the honed limestone floors (…) The open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining can also be opened up to the outdoors for effortless indoor-outdoor living and entertaining. The landscaped gardens include an infinity edge pool tiled in iridescent Bisazza mosaics that visually link the gardens to the sparkling Swan River beyond.

Would this luxury Australian home be everything you dreamed of, too?
