Whispers Nigel Satterley paying $17.5 million for Peppermint Grove mansion, Chiritta

Perth property developer Nigel Satterley has been tipped as the likely $17.5 million buyer of a Peppermint Grove residence, Chiritta, which dates back to the late 1890s.

It 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 sold 52 years ago by the Roe family to the current vendors.

It has 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.

All on 4080 square metres on The Esplanade opposite the Swan River

The rumoured purchase was published in the weekend Australian Financial Review.

The vendors, Channel Nine Perth founders Denis and Ann Cullity held reported initial $25 million expectations for the heritage-listed, seven-bedroom home. In 2002, the head of Satterley Property Group Nigel Satterley secured his  Peppermint Grove property with a two lots acquistion costing $7.5 million.

Chiritta's adjoining 2276 square metre residence is reportedly also under offer to Marcus Plunkett at around $9 million.

Its still listed on Mack Hall's website. The 1912 Swanbrae was listed for the first time in five decades. The Queen Anne Revival home was renovated and extended two years ago.

It has elevated northerly river views over Freshwater Bay Yacht Club and city as a backdrop.
