Moore of a Castle…
Situated high on the hill, this rock-solid two storey residence stands like a castle overlooking the Indian Ocean at Guilderton, this is one of the best homes in the town in a prime location.
Constructed from clay bricks and tiles with maintenance meticulously kept up to date, this home presents perfectly, it’s in fabulous condition and ready to start enjoying from day one, whether it’s a holiday destination or your full-time residence.
The home is spacious and tranquil in both its design and locale, situated across from natural bushland on a large 900sqm lot in an idyllic holiday town only an hour from Perth but you feel so far removed from the hustle and bustle of daily stress when here on the Moore River opening into the Indian Ocean.
Accommodation for a king
Three king size bedrooms with built in robes, the main with ensuite and spa, the other two close to bathrooms with a bath downstairs which will keep everyone happy even the young ones. The bathrooms are in beautiful condition thanks to the water filters on the main water line coming into the property keeping the calcium low.
Seamless entertaining from above or below
Entertaining can be done from the large kitchen overlooking the backyard and living room that open up to provide a seamless indoor to outdoor space where you can barbecue while the kids have freedom of the whole lot as the front gates can shut the grounds off to the street. Upstairs there is a built-in bar and large entertaining space that opens onto a large balcony where the current owners have enjoyed afternoon drinks, nibbles and barbecue while taking in the ocean views and enjoying the cool coastal Fremantle doctor.
A Kings kitchen
A big kitchen off the downstairs living has overhead cupboards, a pantry, and modern appliances. A breakfast bar is great for the kids in the morning or for the adults in the afternoon chewing the fat while the seafood is prepared.
Toys are important
When away, we love to play and there is ample room for boats and caravans on hardstands down one side of this home with straight access to the street. A huge double garage with remote doors keeps cars safe and a mezzanine in the garage for more store area. There is ample size for a boat to be stored in the garage.
Alfresco and Balconies
Outdoor entertaining is part of Guilderton living and with views from upstairs from a covered balcony your guests will love coming to visit, the downstairs alfresco is also a brilliant part of this home. A big advantage of being set back on the hill is that the coastal Sou’wester isn’t as strong for outdoor entertaining as it can be on the coast.
Reverse cycle ducted air conditioning to the top level keeps everything climatically pleasant while split systems downstairs to living areas can keep bills down. A natural fireplace contributes to the homely ambience of the residence and firewood can be stored in the garage and passed through a firewood door from garage to living room. Entertaining with the wood fire blazing and a warming glass of red in your hand or just kicking back with your family each weekend away from the hustle and bustle of city life make this home a all year proposition, not just a summer retreat.
The beauty of Guilderton is the tranquillity of a coastal country town that is just so close to Perth. An hour will have you sitting on the balcony unwinding. You can spend every weekend here through all the seasons coming up after work on a Friday and leaving Monday morning or if your lifestyle allows everyday…. Surf, boat, fish, beach walks with your dog, country club, Golf, bush walking. The Groyne and river mouth get a great wave and fish well or if you want a short drive to Lancelin gives you the choice of reef breaks to surf.
The additional attraction of the Moore River for swimming, fishing, canoeing, small boats heading upriver to explore the “desert”, sand dunes to climb and sand board down. The town is a kid’s paradise to explore and leave the electronic world behind. There are several shops and cafes as well as a caravan park.
