The luxury Perth home of Ross and Lory Merlino, co-founders of artisan furniture maker Merlino, has been sold for $7 million.

They commissioned the Imperial Homes build in 2013, having paid $2,585,000 for the Attadale holding in 2006.

Now stands an opulent three level mansion on the 1,075 square metre elevated parcel with views from the hills in the east to Fremantle in the west.

The ground floor features a sunken lounge with its own kitchenette that opens to an outdoor living area.

The outside space homes a barbecue kitchen, self-cleaning pool and spa, sauna and a deck.

Also on this level is a custom 10 seat, sound proofed home theatre room.

On the first floor is the main living space and kitchen, as well as the master bedroom with marble bath and dressing room.

The basement level has a fully-self contained apartment, garaging for seven cars and a gym.

Mont Property selling agent Matthew Podesta advised the six bedroom home was one of the finest to come to market in Perth.

The $7 million sale easily exceeded the prior suburb record, set late last year when a modern 2010 built home around the corner sold for $5.1 million.

Merlino started off as a small family business, known as R & L Merlino, in 1980 with the selling of Marcel Bruer chairs in the Perth marketplace.

Within 18 months the business had progressed to the purchase of their first warehouse, the employment of staff and the expansion of the furniture range imported from Italy.
