Modernised Character Family Home
Nestled on a full 1012sqm (quarter-acre) green title, in the coveted Claremont riverside precinct south of Stirling Highway, this is a rare gem. Elevated, close to the river, parks, schools and all that the area is famous for, the renovated and refreshed home presents impeccably and offers 5 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 3+ car garaging, structured lawns, and a swimming pool. This two-storey character residence stands as a testament to architectural beauty and timeless design. The original home was built in 1930. Now beautifully renovated and extended, for sale for the first time in three decades, it is a once-in-a-generation opportunity.
Upon arrival, you are greeted by an enchanting front lawn and fully fenced gardens curated by Urban Landscapes, stepping up to a broad veranda. This has been the scene of many a garden party, cricket match and relaxed family gatherings.
Stepping inside, a wide entrance hallway adorned with a leadlight door and sidelight windows beckons you further into a world of comfort and grace. High ceilings, generous proportions and gleaming Jarrah floor boards give a sense of grandeur to the interior, with a flowing floor plan seamlessly blending period features with contemporary improvements. Two elegant living areas on either side of the entrance, adorned with decorative pressed ceilings, French doors and shutters, create a welcoming atmosphere. They are versatile rooms with an abundance of natural light. The right-hand side lounge has a fireplace. The left-hand side dining room connects through to the modernized kitchen.
The spacious contemporary kitchen, a culinary haven that benefits from the delightful morning sun, showcases floor-to-ceiling cupboards, engineered stone benchtops, and high-end Miele appliances, including a 4-hob induction stove, range hood, oven, combi microwave, and dishwasher. The ample bench space provides a sanctuary for family and guests to gather.
The covered alfresco deck awaits outdoors, flowing from the open-plan dining and family area. Enclosed with shutters and blinds, this elevated outdoor haven can be enjoyed year-round, with a picture-perfect outlook over the landscaped rear gardens and swimming pool.
This magnificent character home has family life at the forefront, with four spacious secondary bedrooms that offer ample space for children to grow into adulthood and have room to play or study as their needs and interests evolve. Bedroom five, also an ideal home office, provides external access, offering convenience and versatility for those seeking a private workspace.
The contemporary bathrooms, elegantly designed by Jane Agnew, feature large floor-to-ceiling tiles and heated towel rails for extra luxury and comfort. A laundry and powder room, with easy access to the pool, add to the practicality and functionality of the home.
Upstairs we have the main bedroom suite. The bedroom is king-sized, with an abundance of light. The walk-in robe is generous and the ensuite bathroom is modern, fresh and luxurious. A fantastic feature is the adjoining lounge. Currently used as an office space, it offers parents a spacious retreat at the top of the house, overlooking the garden, pool, and out over the surrounding suburb.
As a family sanctuary, this home’s architectural beauty extends beyond its walls, with side access offering space for extra garden activities or a chicken run. Verandas at both the front and back of the home provide ample shade in summer and weather protection in winter, creating perfect spots for outdoor lounging and relaxation.
The spacious three-car garage at the rear and a fenced-off utility area offer space for extra parking for vehicles or recreational ‘toys’.
Enjoying a verdant position at the top of the hill that runs through the suburb, you have a great sense of space, with views and light, flanked by College, Melvista and Mrs Herbert’s Parks and Mason Gardens, you’ll relish an unrivalled riverside lifestyle with proximity to world-class shopping, sporting and recreational amenities, the Nedlands hospital precinct, UWA and some of Perth’s most prestigious schools.
