This stunning Claremont home’s design and level of detail are simply phenomenal – no expense spared and no stone left unturned. The home boasts a massive amount of living space over two levels, incorporating 4/5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 powder rooms, a full-sized study/library, home theatre, multiple living areas and a stunning sheltered alfresco.
The separate, self-contained 85sqm studio above the 4+ car garage features a full bathroom and kitchenette and would make a fantastic bedroom, games room, teen retreat, studio, gym – take your pick. Adjacent to the garage is a further smaller lock-up garage/workroom providing space for a trailer, jetski or small hatchback car.
The property has been held in the same family for over fifty years and occupies a sprawling 1,114sqm site metres from Mrs Herberts Park in Claremont’s premier riverside enclave. The original 1902 home has retained its charm and ‘yesteryear’ appeal while undergoing an extensive renovation that is both contemporary and sympathetic to the era.
Completely re-wired and re-plumbed, the original building houses the master bedroom suite, with a gas fireplace and brand new opulent ensuite featuring a freestanding bathtub, designer tapware and lighting and exquisite ‘Blue Moon’ granite vanity tops. You’ll also find a cosy lounge and study – each with a gas fireplace, laundry and a powder room before stepping through to the spectacular rear or upstairs extensions.
Throughout the massive open-plan living and dining area at the north facing rear of the home, you’ll enjoy soaring 3.3m ceilings and 800×800 porcelain floor tiling with zoned underfloor heating. A wall of windows and stacking doors are all that separates you from the landscaped gardens and pool cabana. Solar passive design elements include strategically positioned louvre windows for refreshing cross-ventilation, the North-South facing orientation, double-glazed windows, high-density ceiling insulation and a 10.8kw solar system (with 8kw inverter).
The sophisticated galley-style kitchen includes absolutely everything a discerning entertainer desires. A suite of fully integrated and high-end Miele cooking appliances include an oven stack and coffee machine, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and an induction cooktop. The extended breakfast bar boasts the ‘Blue Moon’ granite, with waterfall ends and built-in cabinetry, and a vast walk-through scullery that incorporates an additional extra-large fridge space, a second pantry, Caesarstone benches and endless cabinetry.
The upstairs level houses three generously sized secondary bedrooms, two with ensuite or semi-ensuites. The beautifully appointed family bathroom offers a freestanding tub, a frameless shower and sleek vanity, with the WC conveniently separate.
Across the hall, the enormous theatre room is equipped with blackout drapes, an 4K projector and screen, built-in surround sound speakers and an acoustic ceiling. There’s also a custom made bar with a sink, mirrored splashback and cabinets, for a fully immersive home cinema experience. This room also has a bank of north-facing windows making it an ideal games room or upstairs entertaining lounge.
Outside, the tiled alfresco beneath the home’s main roof has a built-in kitchen with stone benchtops, a BBQ, wok burner, sink and high-end remote-controlled rangehood. Entertain your family and guests while looking out over the landscaped gardens and inviting pool. Orientated for relaxing in the shade, there’s also plenty of lawn for catching rays by the pool. The pool’s innovative ‘Naked’ filtration system is kind on the skin and is similar to tap water, while solar heating keeps running costs to a minimum. The landscaped gardens are reticulated from the property’s bore, with garden lighting and American Oak cladding offsetting the angular lines of the new build.
There is literally nothing to do but move your family into this incredible luxury home and enjoy your sensational new surroundings. This exclusive pocket of Claremont offers an idyllic riverside lifestyle, surrounded by picturesque walking paths and spaces to enjoy the breathtaking Swan River. Take your pick of prestigious local schools, including Freshwater Bay Primary School, Christ Church Grammar and MLC.
