Perfectly nestled on an elevated position in one of City Beach's coveted, tightly held enclaves, and one of an exclusive few homes backing directly onto beautiful Bent St Park, 17 Skipton Way is a unique and outstanding Modernist residence, a masterful synergy of powerful contemporary spaces, architectural vision and the culmination of creative and design ingenuity from renowned Perth architect, Gary Marinko.

This magnificent exemplar of Modernist principles showcases strong clean lines, bold, light infused interiors, timeless materials and a true connection to the outdoors with garden views from every window. Exceptional design is complemented by beautifully, considered finishes within skillfully crafted interiors.

Flawlessly integrated within its landscape, natural elements and textures harmonise fluid connections between indoors and outdoors, whilst the continuity of materials acts as a refined backdrop highlighting openness, function and organic architectural form. Perfectly solar oriented to maximise light and glorious summer breezes, the home embraces magnificent, private, north facing gardens and four courtyards, with beautiful natural light spiraling into both levels. Spectacularly high ceilings, white walls and vast expanses of glass enhance the divine interplay of light and space. A refined neutral palette acts as the perfect canvas for the owner's vibrant art collection, with art tracks installed throughout the home.

This extraordinary home is incredibly easy to live in, with its welcoming, laid-back, coastal beach house vibe, offering a sublime harmony of perfectly zoned and integrated spaces to bring family together for relaxing and entertaining, yet providing distinct spaces for work, sleep and alone time. Anchored by raw concrete, towering Venetian rendered walls and soaring, curved ceiling, open plan family living spaces are artistic and gloriously expansive, yet clearly defined by function. Oversize glass doors seamlessly connect open plan living spaces to a resort style wonderland of stunning mature, lush, landscaped gardens with fabulous dragon trees, striking pristine above ground pool, and fabulous decked alfresco dining area with Vergola roof system.

A concrete beam, exposed feature brick wall and a touch of jarrah delineate and define the bounds of the sleek, modern kitchen. A vision in white with Corian waterfall edge counter banks of drawers, integrated Miele appliances, Ilve oven and large walk-in pantry are perfect for both entertaining and easy family dinners. A superb dining room is linked to open plan living and kitchen spaces, yet naturally connected on two sides to two beautiful creatively designed courtyards. Tucked away behind the kitchen is a gorgeous, sitting room with access to a courtyard that opens through a secure door directly into wonderful parklands.

The west wing hosts two fabulous large children's bedrooms with custom desks and built-in robes, with very stylish interconnecting bathroom, living room and lovely guest bedroom with stylish chic ensuite.

The upper-level main bedroom and study mezzanine are linked by a covered terrace or breezeway, taking advantage of the home's passive solar properties, offering a wonderful relaxed alfresco entertaining area with a fabulous 'swimming' teak fish artwork by Stephen Draper adorning the walls. The roof terrace beyond is a lovely spot to sit and relax, overlooking beautiful Bent St Park. The glorious, sun-drenched master bedroom is a heavenly retreat, a haven of tranquility and sanctuary for adults with tall windows and soaring, curved ceilings. It's sleek and minimalist with striking jarrah built in robes and desk, and luxury ensuite with beautiful black and white patterned floor tiles and fabulous freestanding bath looking out over the treetops.

A serene and tranquil, highly sought-after family friendly City Beach neighbourhood. Surrounded by parklands, with playgrounds, soccer and footy goals, basketball hoops, cricket nets, and a walkway throughout the park directly to the glorious Indian Ocean. Walk to Holy Spirit Primary School or walk your dog in the park. Close to Empire Village shops, restaurants and cafes, and excellent public and private schools including Hale and St Mary's Anglican Girl's School.

17 Skipton Way. An outstanding Modernist residence with exceptional family appeal, and perfectly in harmony with the demands of modern life. A remarkable home bursting with light and space and overflowing with vibrancy and charisma. An architectural masterpiece of substance and distinction, transcending time, form and function.
