Riverside residence with its own private jetty
Set on a 1733m2 block, this substantial 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom architecturally designed home, is a must for those who desire a life by the river.
With 20m of riverfront and its own private jetty this estate is a rare opportunity.
The property is situated within the Stables area, an area listed in the National Trust’s list of Classified Places, not far from Ascot Racecourse and within easy reach of Tonkin highway and Perth Airport. This unique area is steeped in horse racing history, being Perth’s premiere horse racing venue.
You enter the property through electric gates to a driveway large enough to accommodate 4 to 5 cars or a boat/caravan and with the double garage and separate car port as well, you’ll have plenty of room to avoid on-street parking. Being on one level, you walk through the front door and instantly feel an air of peace and serenity.
The kitchen, informal dining and living area is the centre of the home, overlooking the pool and Swan river beyond. The kitchen is well equipped with a central island and plenty of storage. Sliding doors lead to the covered patio area where you can enjoy the views even more. With an elevated position, the Swan River is in full view. Mature specimen trees frame the scenery and ensure a feeling of seclusion and privacy.
The main living room is a good size, and due to the full-length windows, feels light and bright and showcases the views of the river. The formal dining area, adjacent to the living room, is a perfect venue for evening meals. The generous skylight serves as a focus to frame the night skies or lighten the room during the day.
The master bedroom is to the rear of the home, also enjoying garden and river views. The generous ensuite has both a bath and shower and is flooded with natural light due to the impressive skylight.
The family bathroom, laundry and three further bedrooms are all located along the western corridor, away from the family hub of the home.
To the north-facing rear of the property, you’ll find the covered patio, large swimming pool and lawn that are subtly tiered down to the riverside. This is undoubtedly the main showcase of the house. Many peaceful evenings could be spent enjoying the river-life pass by, including black swans, pelicans and dolphins.
The furthest point from the house is what makes this property truly special. There are very few properties in Perth that can boast their own private jetty. Able to accommodate a fifteen-meter boat, this deep-water jetty is an extremely rare opportunity.
Overall, this is a good-sized property, on a substantial block, on the Swan river. There aren’t too many Perth homes where you can just step onto your boat, launch your kayak or just spend the time fishing from the end your own private jetty.
