It wasn’t an easy wish list to tick off — finding a City Beach block conducive to feng shui design elements, right down to the street number, that also combined premium ocean views with a park-side location.

It took years for the Chinese owners to find their perfect block in 8 Weelara Way — a number that represents abundance and business success — and Brian Burke Homes went to work in constructing a residence that exceeded their expectations.

There are uninterrupted ocean views from every level of the house, including the infinity pool on the first floor balcony that proved a costly but worthwhile engineering feat.

Based on a design originally inspired by a yacht, the sprawling mansion includes a theatre room, cellar, gym, lift and eight-car garage.

The owners are ready to downsize from their 1100sqm three-level home now that their kids have finished school and the whole family shares its time between Australia and overseas.

The quaint circa 1900 cottage was extended in the 1980s by Professor Simon Anderson, who was then head of UWA School of Design and Architecture, for previous owner and renowned playwright, the late George Blazevic.

There is now a lane next door named after the well known writer; Blazevic Lane.

Using a combination of steel, glass, brick and timber, the extension allowed Blazevic to write, entertain and immerse himself in his creative pursuits.

Rich in history, the home provides multiple break out areas to live comfortably and work from home.

Linking the old with the new, the central bridge serves as the main artery between structures and floods the home with natural light. Exposed jarrah ceilings and a brick paved floor to the studio are complemented by the newly renovated bathroom with teal tiles.
