Satterley supersizes his mansion


Plans by property mogul Nigel Satterley and his wife Denise to add two storeys to their $17.5 million mansion have been given the thumbs’ up by Peppermint Grove shire planners.

In August last year the Satterleys paid $17.5 million for ‘Chiritta’, which since the late 1890s has overlooked the River Swan from 56 The Esplanade in Peppermint Grove.

If approved, and renovated to plan, the mansion will have three levels with more features than you can poke a stick from a Peppermint tree at.

The first floor (pictured, left) will include massive games and TV rooms, a huge study, and landing, as pictured, left.

The three levels will be serviced by an elevator.

Only one of the Satterleys’ neighbours has objected to the expansion of the mansion.

The renovation rescue is the brainchild of Michael Suttor Architects of the Sydney suburb of Waverley, known in some rarified circles as ‘the Peppermint Grove of the east’.
