One of WA's most historic and prestigious homes is up for sale for what could be one of the state's highest ever property prices - an estimated $25 million.
Chiritta, which dates back to the late 1890s, was built by Augustus Roe, the former police magistrate of Western Australia and the son of John Septimus Roe - WA's original surveyor-general and one of the Perth's founding fathers.
The amazing 4080 square metre property boasts seven bedrooms, including an attic room, six bathrooms and two studies.
But it is the blue-chip location of Peppermint Grove on the edge of the Swan River which could make it one of the most expensive houses in Perth's history.
In 2009, a Mosman Park property sold for $57.5 million - the highest price ever paid for a house in Australia at the time - and in 2007, a home in leafy Claremont sold for $23 million.
The Peppermint Grove property is being sold by the founders of Channel 9 Perth, Ann and Denis Cullity, who bought the heritage-listed home 52 years ago from the Roe family.It also offers a grand formal drawing and dining rooms, a study, two offices, a sunroom, a family room, an informal dining room and a five-car garage.
