Keane Street

Peppermint Grove

The Brief:

Having spent the last 10 years living in Vancouver, the owners of this home wanted a design that combined the architectural influences of the two countries they called home: Canada and Australia. Signature Custom Homes was approached by the owners of the home after seeing a number of their existing homes on a visit to Perth, but spent the duration of the build in Vancouver with their four children.

The Home:

This home is best characterised as a modern resort style mansion. Built on a 2000 m2 site there are 3 storeys of absolute luxury and 1100m2 of living space. As you enter the home through the covered port couture and pivot entry door you are greeted by a formal living and dining space with towering 2 storey high ceilings and glass windows on your right, whilst on your left is the owners private office. Moving down the hall towards the rear of the home you pass the upper level garage, laundry room, drop zone and a craft room before you enter the huge informal living space featuring an amazing kitchen with Wolf and Sub Zero appliances and a huge butlers kitchen with additional cold storage and food preparation facilities. The space includes casual dining and then continues past 2 separate living rooms and the internal stairwell out to a huge tiled balcony featuring a gas fireplace and a separate kitchen with a BBQ and Pizza oven as well as ice making machine, fridge’s and food prep area. The views from this level take in the river and city skyline in the distance.

An external staircase which in itself is a work of art features custom made basalt stone treads and polished plaster stringers and leads down to the lower ground level and the huge pool deck with a second garage and pool cabana. The lower level living includes a guest suite, games room, a home theatre that would rival a Hoyts cinema, gymnasium and the feature sports bar and wine cellar which open out to a second al fresco area with its own BBQ and outdoor kitchen facility.


“The quality of the build was the most important thing to us and it certainly delivered. We wanted a builder that used quality products. When we first met with Dave and the team, I gave them a list of what we wanted incorporated in the house and we were blown away when we got the design it had everything we wanted and more, and we couldn’t believe how perfect it was.”
