A SYMPHONY OF QUALITY AND FUNCTION
One of Claremont's most tranquil and sought-after locations is the fitting setting for this sublime 4 bedroom 2 bathroom two-storey ex-Brian Burke display home that was not only an MBA awards finalist in 2003, but also offers quality executive family living just footsteps away from the lush foreshore reserve, a unique beach at the Claremont Baths jetty and fish spot, the Claremont Yacht Club and the Karrakatta Bank inlet of our picturesque Swan River.
Guest entry into the property is via a splendid eastern courtyard where a trickling water feature and pond in the garden help set the mood. A spectacular wisteria down the side of the property neighbours the front door and almost doubles as a "valet" parking area in front of the remote-controlled three-car lock-up garage that is carpeted and acts as an indoor entertaining area with ample storage options and a built-in workshop nook with a bench. Internal shopper's entry from here, via the laundry, is simply an added bonus.
The laundry itself plays host to hanging space, more storage and a sewing/craft nook, whilst the adjacent fully-tiled powder room has a granite vanity and sits next door to a linen press for good measure. A hallway skylight helps identify where the carpeted theatre room is, fully-equipped with a projector, screen and storage - as well as an elevated seating area that helps enhance the overall cinema-style experience.
Also downstairs is a huge under-stair cellar with split-system air-conditioning for climate control and the capacity to hold 2000 bottles. A massive ground-floor master-bedroom suite will suit the needs of many and captures the best of the morning, northern and afternoon sun, as well as enjoying access out to the east-facing courtyard via French cedar doors, alongside a double-door walk-in "his and hers" dressing room/wardrobe and a sumptuous fully-tiled ensuite bathroom - under-floor heating, shower, twin stone vanities, separate fully-tiled toilet and double courtyard doors.
A central open-plan family and dining area incorporates a timeless Joe Fogliani-designed kitchen into its impressive layout, where a gas fireplace, built-in media cabinetry and an outlook towards the viny green wisteria complements a huge resident chef's workspace with a recessed ceiling, sparkling granite and island bench tops, a breakfast bar for casual meals, double Franke sinks, a water-filter tap, a double-door walk-in pantry with a sensor light, charming oak timber cabinetry, a large appliance nook, a stainless-steel range hood and high-end integrated Miele dishwasher, oven, microwave and Induction/gas hotplate appliances. Security screens protect a handy servery window that takes care of a pleasant north-facing entertaining courtyard, beside a shimmering two-metre salt-water plunge pool with provisions for future heating. A computer/communications nook off the kitchen helps complete the lower-level features.
Upstairs, an intimate landing/sitting area can be whatever you want it to be, whilst double doors only inches away open into a versatile home office-come-library with storage, book-shelving and a built-in three-person workstation where virtually every child in the family has access to their very own study desk. Spacious second and third queen-sized bedrooms each boast built-in double robes, double-door access out on to their very own Juliet balconies and eastern-garden views, as well as lots of morning sunshine filtering in. The third bedroom also faces north, for some extra natural light.
A generous fourth bedroom is also of queen-sized proportions and has its own fitted walk-in robe, whilst a fully-tiled main bathroom (with a shower, separate bath tub, heat lamps and a stone vanity), a separate fully-tiled toilet, a powder area with a granite vanity, a double linen cupboard and a huge walk-in linen press make up the rest of the upper level. At the rear of the property, you will find a neat and tidy lawn area that the pets and young ones will absolutely love, as well as a drying courtyard, a lock-up garden shed, a hot/cold water outdoor shower, a rainwater tank and lemon and lime trees to garnish your favourite food and drinks with.
With a plethora of sprawling local parklands and sporting facilities only walking distance away too, Christ Church Grammar School, Methodist Ladies' College, Freshwater Bay Primary School (around the corner) and Scotch College all nearby and beautiful beaches, public transport, the city, Fremantle and the world-class Claremont Quarter shopping precinct just minutes away in their own right, there is also a surprising sense of convenience attached to this amazing property's iconic position. Experience the perfect harmony of family living and contemporary sophistication in this captivating residence.
