IMPECCABLY RENOVATED ICONIC CLAREMONT RESIDENCE
Built on one of this prestigious riverside suburb’s most recognisable streets in 1898, this iconic, dual level historic residence has been impeccably restored and renovated inside and out.
One of Perth’s finest and most substantial examples of Queen Anne Federation architecture, it has been recognised for its historical significance and the attention to detail taken to restore and rework it into a modern family home.
Set at the river end of Bayview Terrace, just minutes from Claremont jetty, its thriving retail and food precinct and walking distance to many of the area’s most prestigious private schools and colleges, this home skilfully blends the beauty of Federation era architecture with a very contemporary feel.
Its grand exterior faade, combining historic limestone and tuck pointing with turned timber verandah posts, is set back from street level behind beautiful manicured front gardens.
Wide timber-lined verandahs top and bottom give this home a real sense of presence and grandeur and are a sign of the care and attention to detail that has been taken to ensure this home remains true to its 19th century origins.
Inside the beauty of history meets functionality and contemporary flair with traditional 3.6m ceilings, original fire places, wide original timber boards and sash windows upstairs and down.
A wide central hallway leads into a formal combined lounge and dining room with an open fire, generously proportioned and opening out onto a private central courtyard. The combined contemporary kitchen and living space is bordered by panels of timber French doors and is this home’s natural focal point. A gathering point for family and friends, it boasts all of the features of the modern kitchen with an elegant use of traditional features and finishes.
Dominated by a huge, marble topped timber island bench with modern overhanging pendant lights, it features top of the range European appliances, with automatic zip tap, integrated wine fridge and an adjoining combined laundry and scullery.
There is an easy movement between indoors and out, making this home ideal for those who love to entertain with a protected internal courtyard and rear, north facing garden with inground pool and rear laneway access via a large double garage.
This home offers great separation for growing families with the upper level boasting four bedrooms and two superbly renovated, contemporary bathrooms.
Those with older children will appreciate the demarcation of space and the privacy and luxury of the upstairs master suite. Opened out to make the most of the high ceilings and lofty proportions, it features a huge bedroom overlooking the front garden with floor to ceiling sash windows and traditional ceilings opening into a custom designed and constructed dressing room.
The modern ensuite bathroom has been impeccably renovated in keeping with this home’s skillful combination of history and modern elegance, with a large free standing European bath, frameless glass shower and stone benchtops.
A luxurious, beautifully appointed private retreat, it offers brushed wool carpeting, bespoke cabinetry and opens out onto protected balconies front and back.
This is an exceptional home and a rare combination of the beauty of heritage design and contemporary style in the heart of one of Perth’s most sought after residential pockets.
Walking distance to Claremont Primary, Christ Church Grammar School and MLC, with parklands, tennis courts, the river and bowling club, just minutes away, it is an easy commute to the city with public transport access just minutes away.
