Luxurious Perth French chateau-style home labelled the ‘finest in the country’, hits the market

A custom-designed Perth home, with a French-inspired feel, has just been listed for sale with price hopes of more than $14 million.

Labelled the “finest house for sale across all of Perth, if not Australia,” the home, at 48 Bay View Terrace, Mosman Park, offers breathtaking views of the Swan River and boasts a lavish interior reminiscent of a French chateau. 

The property, which spans three levels, is for sale by expressions of interest, with a guide of offers above $14 million and a closing date of June 28 (unless sold prior).

boasts five bedrooms and five bathrooms along with an eight-car garage featuring a Freemason-style checkerboard floor.

Each of the spacious bedrooms comes complete with a dressing room and ensuite, ensuring privacy and comfort. 

The guest wing of the home boasts a separate entrance accessible via a private rear laneway, guaranteeing convenience and exclusivity for visiting guests. 

There’s also a gymnasium, cleverly positioned to open onto the alfresco terrace, which presents a versatile space that can easily serve as a studio, activity room, or additional working area, along side the picture-perfect office located just across the hall.

Upstairs, a grand open-plan living and dining area offers sweeping views of the river, creating an atmosphere of tranquillity and refinement. 

French doors lead to a Juliette balcony on one side and a terrace on the other, seamlessly blending the boundaries between indoor and outdoor living and dining spaces. 

The bespoke kitchen showcases an expansive stone island bench, top-of-the-line Miele and SubZero appliances, a scullery boasting ample pantry storage and a custom-imported English Falcon cooker. 

The breakfast nook, strategically positioned to overlook Bay View Park and the river, has become a cherished spot for the owners.

Nestled within the residence is a stunning inner courtyard, housing a heated below-ground pool and spa that serves as a captivating focal point visible from the light-filled hallways on each level. 

High-profile Perth accountant Mark Pozzi and wife Carmen purchased the block 10 years ago and spent two years planning their dream home. 

“We simply love this area,” Mr Pozzi said.

“The build took 4.5 years as we had so many issues getting local trades and suppliers and most products had to be imported from the US or the UK.

“I have always loved Mosman Park and this street has the best view in Perth.”

Mr Pozzi said everything was imported from overseas, including the copper ceilings, the slate from New England in the US along with the wainscoting panels and light fittings.

“We took inspiration from our travels,” he said.

“The garage’s inspiration is from the pool at the Baccarat Hotel in New York, and also the Bentley dealership in London.”

Principal of Ray White Cottesloe Mosman Park, Jody Fewster, said the campaign has only just launched but she already received a lot of enquiries so far, with the first access to the home happening this weekend.

“I have been pleasantly surprised by the number of well-qualified people who’ve called, already, and it’s such early days,” Ms Fewster said.

Ms Fewster said there has been strong interest so far from people currently living overseas and interstate but wanting to return home to Perth.

“I’ve also had a couple of people from interstate make an inquiry, who are passionate about their cars, who want that garage.”
