Classic and contemporary meet in the middle here, where this enchanting 4 bedroom 3 bathroom two-storey residence is nestled opposite the sprawling Mosman Park Golf Club, high in an enviable location boasting a breathtaking vista across the picturesque Swan River, beyond the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club, towards the Claremont Jetty and of the stunning Perth city skyline.
Upstairs, solid wooden floorboards and timber railings evoke circa-1930s charm, with high ceilings, stunning character ceiling roses, original light switches, decorative cornices, feature wooden skirting boards and windowsills and Oregon doors all commonplace throughout this sublime family home. The best panoramic view of all is reserved for the rear balcony terrace off a light, bright and massive master-bedroom suite that is carpeted for complete comfort and plays host to separate “his and hers” built-in double wardrobes, a large walk-in robe with a make-up nook and an open ensuite bathroom graced by quality tiling, a free-standing claw-foot bathtub with a hanging pendant light, a generous walk-in shower, a separate toilet, twin vanities and extra mirrored storage/built-in robe options.
Also on the top floor are a linen press and a fully-tiled modern bathroom with another claw-foot bath and walk-in shower, twin vanities, a separate toilet and semi-ensuite access from the second or “guest” bedroom where a walk-through robe and an awesome river outlook lie in wait. At ground level, a covered garden entrance is securely gated and reveals a front-yard sitting deck opposite low-maintenance artificial turf.
Once inside through, you are welcomed by a versatile study/office (or fifth bedroom) with front-garden access for potential clients, as well as a third bedroom that even comprises of a splendid garden aspect to wake up to and semi-ensuite access into a stylish “third” bathroom with a shower, toilet, vanity and floor-to-ceiling tiling. A massive fourth bedroom with its own private double-door access doubles as either a carpeted “granny flat” or extra living room, also enjoying soaring cathedral-style high ceilings, split-system air-conditioning, funky light fittings, built-in robes/storage, side-garden access and easy access next to a kitchenette, separate laundry and the third bathroom.
The downstairs lounge room is spacious and flows through to an enclosed alfresco-entertaining deck with its own Escea fireplace, stone bar, a Vintec drinks fridge and bi-fold servery windows to the open-plan dining and kitchen area. Full-height bi-fold doors reveal another slice of the awe-inspiring vista and overlook a rear open-air balcony deck, as well as sunken backyard lawns and another courtyard for sitting and quiet contemplation.
There is a distinct “Hamptons” feel about the kitchen and dining area, where sparkling marble bench tops and splashbacks, a breakfast bar, more modern lighting, a microwave nook, a Falcon five-burner gas cooktop/oven, an integrated range hood, a Miele dishwasher, double sinks, pull-out bins and heaps of cupboard space combine as one. Another set of bi-fold doors off here open to a sunroom – or music room – with enough space for piano and delightful river glimpses through the trees in the background.
Keep an ear out for the chirping sounds of the local birdlife before strolling to the beautiful riverside Chidley Reserve, bus stops and cafes whilst indulging in a very close proximity to Iona Presentation College, St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls, Mosman Park Primary School, the Mosman Park Bowling Club, the Victoria Street and Mosman Park Train Stations, shopping at Cottesloe Central and the world-class Claremont Quarter, South Cottesloe Beach, restaurants, Presbyterian Ladies’ College and even Fremantle. This exemplary property simply knows no bounds!
