CAPTIVATING RESIDENCE WITH RIVERBANK PANORAMA
Proudly we present this quality timeless family home perched over the banks of beautiful Rocky Bay enjoying exquisite, uninterrupted river views as far as the eye can see.
Welcoming and heart-warming, Rivers Bend, as it is aptly named, is surrounded by exquisite gardens and has been a much cherished abode, full of light open-spaces maximising the mind-blowing riverfront outlook. This fertile section of tranquil water, with its stunning limestone cliffs backdrop, regularly welcomes dolphins and an array of bird life, bringing you endless pleasure.
The home’s symmetrical faade framed by pretty cottage gardens gives a gentle nod to Georgian architecture and the English countryside.
Inside, the all-white colour palette adds freshness while antique chandeliers and elegant decorative elements, carefully salvaged Australia-wide, give a hint to opulent faraway places. A highlight is the magnificent jarrah staircase, salvaged from a local WA school the incredible workmanship melds so beautifully within the otherwise crisp aesthetic.
One can easily imagine the smell of freshly baked treats emanating from this farm-fresh, all-white kitchen which is awash with northern sunshine. Generously proportioned, with enough space for an eat-in table setting, it is surrounded by windows, drawing in the river and lush greenery. Long benches, storage galore, quality appliances plus a substantial walk-in pantry, make this a cooking space you will love.
