A SECLUDED RIVERSIDE SANCTUARY
Tranquilly situated on the sought-after - and tightly-held - river side of Victoria Avenue, this gated sanctuary of a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom two-storey home doubles as your own private cul-de-sac oasis, offering a truly-stunning lifestyle, with amazing views.
Nestled along the serene riverbanks of the Swan, this unique residence will suit a certain type of buyer and combines spacious and luxurious living with captivating natural beauty. Enjoy river vista across to Peppermint Grove from the comfort of your own home - especially out on the balcony upstairs.
The remote-controlled front driveway gate not only secures ample parking space (along with a separate pedestrian gate on the eastern side of the property), but also provides everybody with an overall peace of mind.
A fully-glass-walled entry foyer - complete with double glass front doors - makes a statement right away, revealing a striking double-door vestibule and is gorgeous mosaic-tiled floor feature.
It all precedes a formal open-plan sitting, lounge and dining room with built-in storage and shelving, its own powder room, a gas fireplace and an awesome river outlook across multiple windows.
The balcony has remote-controlled blinds and outdoor audio speakers.
The adjacent open-plan meals, kitchen and casual-living area is warmed by exemplary French oak wooden floorboards and also enjoys a mesmerising aspect across the river waters.
The kitchen itself is every resident chef's dream and has been expertly renovated to include sparkling stone bench tops and splashbacks, a walk-in pantry, integrated range-hood and microwave appliances, an Ariston Induction cooktop, a Neff warming drawer and double ovens, quality Gaggenau steamer and deep-fryer appliances and a sleek white Asko dishwasher for good measure.
The same flooring continues through the double doors of a master-bedroom suite that defines relaxation. There, you will be in awe of separate twin built-in wardrobes and a sumptuous - and spacious - fully-tiled ensuite bathroom with a ceiling-mounted rain/hose shower, a bubbling spa bath with a showerhead, twin granite vanities, a toilet, bidet, heated towel rack and integrated Bowers & Wilkins ceiling audio speakers.
Take the stairs down to the lower level, or make full use of the internal lift that will suit those from all walks of life.
Once downstairs, you will discover internal shopper's entry via a remote-controlled lock-up double garage that also has its own storage area.
The laundry has a walk-in linen press, further under-bench storage and a fold-out ironing board, whilst folding doors shut off the study (or potential den or home office) and its separate access door to the side garden, as well as a trickling mood-setting water feature.
There is a linen press and walk-in wine cellar in the hallway too, as well as a large second bedroom with two sets of built-in double robes.
The fully-tiled bathroom has a new screen to its walk-in shower, right beside a toilet and powder vanity.
The piece de resistance, internally at least, is a fully-enclosed gas-heated lap pool with its own bar area (with a dishwasher), audio speakers to pump out your favourite tunes whilst in the water and window louvers to let those sensual breezes filter in on a hot summer's day.
Double French doors extend entertaining out to a lovely rear pergola terrace under the grapevine - generous in size and playing host to a built-in mains-gas Turbo barbecue.
Another pond and water feature out here are complemented by a powered double-door garden shed, pleasant river glimpses, a hidden corner drying courtyard, a large side terrace courtyard for sitting and quiet contemplation, a vegetable patch, passionfruit vines and exotic lemon and kumquat trees. There are also lemon and orange trees out front, for those garden enthusiasts.
With its practical design, spacious interior and unparalleled location, this is a rare opportunity to experience the perfect blend of serenity, elegance and the ultimate in riverside living. Step inside and let the enchantment embrace you in every corner of this exquisite property.
Picturesque local parklands lie nearby (including the iconic Mrs Herbert's Park), with bus stops, cafes, restaurants, Dalkeith Primary School and the popular Dalkeith Village Shopping and Medical Centre all very much within arm's reach. Throw in a very handy proximity to the Nedlands Golf Club, the Dalkeith Tennis Club, other exclusive sporting clubs, the Nedlands Yacht Club, the world-class Claremont Quarter shopping precinct, Christ Church Grammar School, Scotch College, Methodist Ladies' College, hospitals, the University of Western Australia, Fremantle, our vibrant Perth CBD and so much more.
