The main living space is spectacular. The open plan living, dining and kitchen are equally as perfect for entertaining as it is for peaceful, day-to-day living, with a suite of state-of-the-art Gaggenau and Bosch kitchen appliances such as a gas and electric stove top, dishwasher, double fridge, phenomenal storage space, and beautifully curved stone bench tops.
The keen home chef or caterers will never feel hemmed in when preparing fine fare in this kitchen, with the sweep of the Swan River as it meets Perth city’s skyline ensuring you can enjoy a vista of the Narrows Bridge, rowers and yachts, sunrise, sunset the twinkling lights of the nearby Elizabeth Quay and across to the bustling residential area of South Perth and back to Mount Pleasant, Applecross and back down the river towards Fremantle.
With two main-sized bedroom suites, the only question will be which one has the best view. Both bedrooms offer fully tiled ensuites with terrazzo stone, spa bath, double stone vanities, frameless showers, separate WCs and large gilt-framed mirrors above the vanities, a nod to the charm of the heritage building itself.
In one main bedroom, enjoy wall-length built-in robes, while in the other find walk-in robes, a dressing suite and an outlook towards the city and the private terrace.
Additionally, this home offers a third bedroom with built-in robes and a large, bright and airy study and/or fourth bedroom, depending on your requirements.
Throughout, the theme is a sense of understated, timeless luxury, in keeping with the preservation of yesteryear retained in the Brewery’s careful restoration. The summery appeal of plantation shutters and earthy hues complements the recognisable Brewery’s brick façade. Of course, comfort and ease are paramount, with ducted reverse cycle air conditioning, a serviced lobby for guests, and fully reticulated gardens.
Outside, bask in the morning sun on your wrap-around paved, fully fenced private terrace, fringed with bougainvillaea, rose bushes and your won frangipani tree. This opens to the riverside piazza, with lawns and paved areas. From here, jog, walk or scooter to and from the city centre. Stroll out onto the timber jetty for a unique perspective across the river and back to the iconic heritage-listed building of the Swan Brewery complex. You will often find people engaged in fishing or crabbing from the jetty, and always ready for a friendly chat about what they are catching that day. This beautiful old jetty is also a convenient pickup and drop-off point for boating ventures. Enjoy the very special ambience of Cooee restaurant, where they offer fine fare, a great bar, and some of the best waterside dining in Perth, just a stroll away across the other far side of the Piazza.
Additionally, the underground car park is accessed via a slip road from Mounts Bay Road, with an elevator taking you directly to the ground floor. Guests can park in a public car park across the road and access the building via a covered walkway serviced by elevators.
For history buffs, this building is one of Perth’s dominant and favourite landmarks. Originally built in 1838 as a mill for timber-cutting as well as flour-grinding, the buildings have an interesting history including at one time a restaurant, used by travellers between Perth and Fremantle. In 1877 it was acquired by the Swan Brewery Company.
The lovingly restored buildings now contain Cooee and a function centre, which re-opened in 2001, and a microbrewery producing malt ales and lagers. There is also a display of historic photographs and artefacts, and the offices of private investment group, Tattarang.
A stone’s throw to the CBD, minutes by car to Broadway Fair Shopping Centre in Nedlands and Subiaco’s fine dining options, a quick walk to the multiple paths and grasslands of Kings’ Park and on the doorstep to UWA, this home offers the chance to live in the sought-after heart of one of Perth’s most picturesque locales. St George’s Anglican Grammar School is also a 10-minute drive (six minutes by bike!) and Rosalie Primary School is just seven minutes away.
