About the Project

Approaching this home, exquisitely built by Exclusive Residence, the distinctive mid-century modern aesthetic of ‘The Retreat’ exults that Palms Springs, Californian vibe with its long slender lines of white render punctuated with contrasting black timber panelling, eco ridge feature stone and breeze block screen walls, is Just 3 kilometres from the popular Trigg Beach and 15 minutes North of Perth City.

The accommodation brief included large open planned, free form Living areas, custom Kitchen and Scullery, a Home Theatre, oversized Bedrooms and glamourous yet functional Bathrooms with high-end fixtures and tiling.

Instinctive design resulted in this home being built on 3 split levels. The Bedroom zones and Garaging were located towards the front of the home, bisected by a central Entry and wide passage that enabled the transition to step down to the home’s mid-level.

On the mid-level is the Activity/Home Theatre, Powder Room, Laundry and Master Suite. From this level through the double French doors, you arrive into the open plan. On this level is the Kitchen and Scullery with contemporary styled cabinetwork and stone benchtops appointed with luxury appliances.

Envisioned by the Owners, the ‘raised’ Kitchen commands views across the Living – Dining and through over-sized windows, the Alfresco and pool beyond. From the Kitchen level, the Open planned Living areas step down further but as the already high ceilings retain the same lines, the volume of the spaces is accentuated and flooded with the Northern light during the day.

Added to existing refurbished pool and lushly landscaped outdoor entertaining surrounds, is a pool Cabana with a self-contained Guest Suite.

We are very happy to have selected Exclusive Residence to build our custom home.

We wanted to build a unique custom home that was going to be here for the longevity of our family.

Melinda and I wanted a mid-century modern look, with a resort style feel where we can sit down and entertain while watching our family play out in the pool and around the back yard all from the elevated kitchen and open plan living area. The flow of the home from the front door through to the back-resort style pool and landscaped yard with a cabana is just what we envisioned.

We are extremely pleased with the finished product and the seamless building process through construction with John and his team was a dream.

Exclusive Residence are a highly professional outfit that John coordinates. I would recommend anyone wanting to design and build a custom quality home to speak with the team at Exclusive Residence and engage them to build your dream home.

Strong Communication, time management and attention to detail were all performed to perfection and we are grateful to the team at Exclusive Residence who delivered us a very high-quality end finished product. Both of us are delighted with our home.
