Architect Rob Mills’ Luxurious Parkside Home
- 5 Beds
- 5 Baths
Multi-award-winning architect Rob Mills has redefined luxury at his own family home on the edge of Union Park in this coveted family-friendly pocket of Armadale.
Mills has created a unique contemporary home that is both simple and luxurious at the same time. What was once a cardboard factory is now a brilliant warehouse conversion with five bedrooms, each with own ensuite, powder room, light-filled living spaces, lift, sauna and two car garage. The breathtaking spaces include floor-to ceiling windows, skylights, and elegant finishes throughout.
The three-level home includes a self-contained two-bedroom apartment with direct park access on the ground floor, suitable for rental or the extended family. On the first floor beneath 3.2-metre high ceilings, the living domain features expansive sliding windows onto the park. Materials range from polished plaster walls, to marble floors, a black and white veined Italian marble staircase, and an awe-inspiring brass kitchen with Wolf ovens, Gaggenau cooktop and Sub Zero fridges.
The marble powder room and deep door frames are finished in brass, while a timber-lined “winter room” with a fireplace and deep hues is all about cocooning in comfort.
A signature Rob Mills curved marble staircase leads to the first floor, then continues to the main suite with a luxe ensuite and a terrace overlooking the park and city views. At the opposite end of this floor are two large bedrooms, both with own ensuites.
Additional features of this unique property include an upstairs laundry, drying room, French linen curtains, Control 4 Home automation, video security, extensive storage, keyless entry, environmentally friendly paint, abundant cross ventilation, and a double garage with workstation. Accessed via the rear gate is the local Tennis Centre, with Memorial Kindergarten, High Street and Glenferrie Road shops, trams and access to leading schools all in walking distance. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to own a distinguished architect’s own home.
