A multi-million dollar mansion reminiscent of a resort villa is hidden behind the simple stone front of a house in a secluded avenue.
Built in Cottesloe, a Perth beachside suburb about 30 minutes’ drive from the city center, the four bedroom, two bathroom house has a lush garden straight from the pages of a magazine with a huge day bed recessed into the ground, mood lighting and a water feature that wraps around the house like a moat.
Stepping stones run across the water to an outdoor BBQ deck that leads inside to an open plan kitchen and living area, equipped with a luxurious marble island, stone countertops and sleek gray cabinets.
Less than a 10 minute walk to the beach, the 631 m2 house also has a walk-in wine cellar, gym, spacious study and self-contained guest suite with a private balcony and kitchenette.

The simple stone facade of the house in Cottesloe, west Perth, hides a multi-million dollar mansion reminiscent of a five star Las Vegas hotel
The lush garden comes straight from the pages of a magazine, with a huge day bed (right) and a long water feature that runs through the house like a moat
Stepping stones run across the water to an outdoor BBQ terrace that leads inward to an open kitchen
A second exterior view of the house refers to the grandeur that lies within
The land on which the house is located was bought by Australian husband JJ Brits and his wife Elsabe Muller when they returned to Perth from Singapore in 2015.
The couple commissioned architectural firms Yael K Design and Lime St Projects to design and build their ‘interesting and modern’ dream home.
“We didn’t want a showpiece, we didn’t want a big mansion, just something that worked for us and was liveable,” said Mr. Brits. real estate.com.au last week.
The result is a house designed around an outdoor space, sustainably powered by solar panels and two underground water tanks installed before the foundation was laid.
The modern kitchen has a luxurious marble island, natural stone worktops and sleek gray cabinets
The open living area is connected to the kitchen on the left and the patio and garden on the right

The garden and barbecue patio are connected by stepping stones that run over the water
One set of stepping stones leads to the master bedroom, while another leads to the barbecue terrace just out of shot
The upstairs houses the gym, the guest suite, two bedrooms, the master bathroom, and a large study, which is listed as the fourth bedroom on the property ad.
It connects to a private parking space with room for three cars and is completely self contained which means it has a bathroom, bedroom, cooking facilities and street access which is separate from the rest of the house.
Downstairs, the master bedroom features a built-in designer bed, walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom with a double his and hers shower, freestanding bath and a door leading directly into the garden.
The master ensuite bedroom on the ground floor features a built-in designer bed, freestanding bath and two doors leading directly to the garden
The freestanding bath is the centerpiece of the ensuite bathroom
The upstairs gym has a full-length mirror and plenty of room for more exercise equipment
The spacious study room is so large that it can also be used as a fourth bedroom
It sounds like paradise, but just two weeks before Mr Brits and Ms Muller would move into the beautiful house, Ms Muller was offered a job she couldn’t refuse in Brisbane and moved there in October 2018.
The house at 3 Kiln Lane, Cottesloe, was rented until recently, but the couple have now put it up for sale through broker Ray White at an asking price of $ 3.9 million.
