Buy buy residence: The Perth houses for sale worth checking out in Swanbourne, Mount Lawley and Palmyra

6 James Road, Swanbourne

Price Guide: Around $6 million

Agent: Justin Davies, Space Real Estate

Best Features: Entertainer’s dream; guest retreat

Beds: 5

Baths: 3

Cars: 2

The lifestyle offered at this breathtaking Swanbourne home has been so idyllic, the owners have little faith they find something to match it when they move overseas.

“The expansive back yard and pool area is amazing and has the most beautiful views of the sky and pine trees. It is so private and quiet with no home behind it. People are surprised at how peaceful it is, but the block is so elevated the road noise from behind is negligible,” the owners said.

“We’ve had so many wonderful celebrations in this house. In winter or summer you can open up the bi-folding doors and let the outdoors in. We’re not confident we’ll find a home in Canada to replace it,” they added.

It’s an understandable concern considering the home ticks most boxes and offers views over the Cottesloe pines with ocean glimpses to Rottnest. Few places in the world would rival WA’s colourful sunsets, which can be fully appreciated from the yard.

Features include a large stylish kitchen with stone and stainless steel benchtops, a long back deck with pizza oven and barbeque, a below ground pool with a poolside cabana, and a guest retreat with its own kitchenette, living and separate entry.

After falling in love with the original features of their 1935-built home, the owners were lucky enough to retain them when they renovated thanks to a generous 918sqm block giving them the opportunity to extend.

The result is a unique blend of old and new; where a deco entrance, jarrah floors, leadlight windows, ornate period accents and an original fireplace seamlessly merge with modern polished concrete floors commercial grade bifold doors and a sleek kitchen with stone benches, soft close cabinetry and a spacious scullery.

The location has been a huge perk for the owners, who have enjoyed being able to walk to nearby parks, schools & Beaufort Street cafes and shops.

The home includes five generously sized bedrooms, an open plan kitchen, living and dining area, and reticulated front and rear gardens.

Fully fenced with an electric gate, the property is also secured by a motion sensor alarm system.
