With panoramic postcard vistas of the river, this East Perth home is undoubtedly one of the best seats in Perth’s house.
For Ray White City Residential Perth Director Brent Compton, it is situated in what has to be one of the most sought-after locations in the entire city.
“The property is east-facing, on the water, never to be built out,” he said. “It’s on a quiet cul-de-sac street, facing Optus Stadium and Matagarup Bridge.”
“You’ve got no western sun, the wind and the rain doesn’t hit you from the west and the Fremantle Doctor doesn’t give you any grief in the afternoon – magnificent.”
Across four levels, the home offers unparalleled separation of living, beginning with the ground floor, an entertainer’s haven.
Here you’ll find a massive open living area, a separate theatre room that could easily accommodate guests or visiting family members, and a very well-equipped bar ready to service the timber deck and pristine plunge pool.
The first floor is the heart of the home, from the portico and entry hall through to a wide-open living and dining space, and an illuminated, well-appointed kitchen with a central island and elevated terrace.
Bedrooms two, three and four sit on the second level, each with a balcony and one commanding sweeping views of the Swan River.
At the home’s summit, the master retreat was the standout for Mr Compton.
“I really love standing on the top balcony off the master bedroom, looking out at the view,” he said. “It’s an aspect very few people ever get the opportunity to experience.”
Mr Compton believed a property with equivalent views in other major Australian cities would be exorbitant in comparison, but ultimately what this home offered could not be reproduced anywhere else.
“There’s only very, very few houses on that side of the street that gets to enjoy that view,” he said, adding this particular home’s vistas were unique in that they weren’t obstructed by any trees.
“This one has the Rolls Royce unimpeded view with nothing to shroud your vision.”
Designed with accessibility and convenience in mind, the home is serviced by a lift. Each floor has a toilet, and each bedroom has an ensuite – a rare inclusion.
Downsizers, extended families and even young professionals would see the appeal in the lifestyle on offer here, according to Mr Compton.
“It’d be good for the downsizer, someone that’s just sick and tired of mowing lawns,” he said.
“There’s a lovely little rose garden out the front, so you could do a bit of tinkering around there, but it’s pretty low maintenance.
“I also think it would very much suit an inner-city professional couple, or retirees that have grandchildren come over to stay from time to time because you’ve certainly got every member of the family catered for.
“It could certainly suit a large family as well – if there were four or five people in the family, you’d still comfortably fit in there and all have your own private space.”
There is two undercover lock-up garages and space for two more vehicles on the driveway, but in a location such as this, you may not need them.
