Minutes from local amenities, surrounded by mature trees and enjoying prime position in one of Perth’s most desirable riverside locations, this bespoke residence is perfectly suited to the discerning buyer seeking quality over enormity.
Designed by architect Simon Rodrigues, just two families have thoroughly enjoyed this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home, a property where a landscaped north-facing courtyard takes centre stage after entry, and around which it operates from each level.
As hushed as an art gallery and equally as impressive, this property occupies a generous 1,012sqm, north facing rear block, is set back from the street and is designed within zones to make the most of the peaceful locale and stunning garden vistas.
On the main ground level, expansive glass doors opening to the courtyard combine with contemporary, sometimes geometric textures and – throughout – soaring ceilings of between 2.9m and 3.6m. The result is a complementary melding of earthy natural materials such as Spanish sandstone and solid timber with cutting-edge architectural design (this home won an architecture award in 2000).
Also on this level is the kitchen, living and dining space, all facing the calm greenery at the front of the home, including a massive date palm for additional street appeal.
This area also overlooks, and opens onto, the central courtyard, a sun-dappled, supremely private, European-style alfresco area, ideal for elegant gatherings under the leafy pergola, and surrounded by expertly maintained greenery such as olive trees.
In the kitchen itself, find Miele appliances, stone bench top, a servery window to the dining area, and a handy study nook for dealing with life’s practicalities.
Entertain with ease in the living and dining area, with extensive wall space perfect for hanging that stand-out work of art. Built-in cabinetry here creates a subtle divide between kitchen and living.
Guests will love relaxing in front of the gas fireplace or enjoying the cool breeze on summer days. Simply slide open the glass doors to the courtyard and let the outside in.
Hugging the courtyard is a side living area or library space, boasting lengthy bookshelves and display cabinets spaced among more glass that reveals the established garden, somehow managing to appear at every turn.
Located in a wonderfully quiet position at the rear of the home on the ground floor, is the main bedroom suite, King-sized, in a zone of its own and with a clear view into the courtyard.
With a double sided extra large walk-in robe, and a spacious ensuite with double vanities, large shower, and W.C. This ensuite has a glass wall and sliding doors, opening to the north into a private courtyard, welcoming in an abundance of light and airflow.
Also on this level, find a significant laundry with full-length storage, hanging rack and direct outdoor side access, a powder room, and entry to the double garage, again with extra storage space, all suitably hidden from view but located for maximum ease for the residents’ themselves.
Upstairs to level two, a welcoming study area or lounge occupies the landing space, again with a bright and airy courtyard vista and the handy addition of built-in timber storage and desk.
Adjoining, bedroom two is king sized and ideal as a guest room, while bedroom three is equally as generous with built-in robes. Serving this level is a family-sized bathroom with bath, shower, and WC.
The home has ducted reverse cycle air conditioning throughout, alarm system, electronic gates providing absolute security and privacy, and fully reticulated gardens from its own bore.
Alongside premium materials, quality, atmosphere and elegance, this home is a stroll to the Dalkeith Village Shopping precinct, Dalkeith Primary School, and stunning riverside walks. Dine at the newly opened Isoletta+Bar Ristorante on nearby Waratah Avenue, enjoy one of the causal cafes, or drive to Claremont Quarter in just over five minutes.
