OUTSTANDING BLOCK VALUE OPPORTUNITY
This is your chance to secure a prime corner block on one of Australia's most famous streets. In fact, it is the cheapest entry opportunity onto Jutland Parade, a street that has seen more capital invested into luxury homes in the last 5 - 10 years, than just about any other street in Perth, or for that matter around the country. With a desirable north-facing backyard and less than 200m from the riverfront parks and reserve, there are few better places to build. Your design can take advantage of the gentle slope to create a large undercroft garage and enjoy a commanding view from this elevated position.
In the meantime, you can use or lease out the substantial single level 4 bedroom brick ad tile home that offers 2 bathrooms, living, dining, lounge, study, central courtyard, double garage, workshop, swimming pool and secure lawn area behind is solid wall and gates. The original owners of the 1959-built home, aristocrats Lord and Lady Loton, whose son Brian became a managing director at BHP, sold the property to the current owner approximately 44 years ago. Since then, the property has been filled with two generations of family and happy memories.
The commanding block on the corner of Haig Road includes an impressive 70-metre frontage, with a brick wall and established trees providing the perfect privacy screen. Inside the four-bedroom, two-bathroom residence, you'll find high ceilings and character features of days gone by. Solid Jarrah window frames, French doors with beveled glass panes, decorative ceilings and built-in timber robes and cabinetry can be found throughout.
Multiple internal living areas include a formal sitting/lounge room by the entry and a spacious North-facing living area overlooking the alfresco area and central paved courtyard. The inclusion of multiple sets of sliding doors in this area facilitates an abundance of natural light into the home.
The neatly presented and functional kitchen offers plenty of storage, a Bosch dishwasher, 4-burner gas cooktop and a stainless steel electric wall oven. There's also a convenient 'drop zone' and a double pantry, a generous space nearby for the family to enjoy casual meals together, and a separate dining room for more formal occasions.
The bedrooms are carpeted and include full-height built-in robes, with two able to accommodate a main bedroom suite. The bathrooms are mainly original, with vanities, single showers and separate WCs. There's also an external powder room attached to the garage/workshop at the rear of the property.
Outside, the low-maintenance lawn and gardens are fully reticulated, with ample room for kids' activities and family fun. There's a fenced lagoon-style pool with a water feature and plenty of off-street parking accessible from Haig Road, including the double lock-up garage.
Enjoy proximity to the Swan River (Otto Point Reserve is a 200m stroll via Iris Avenue), UWA, Dalkeith Primary School, Dalkeith Shopping Village on Waratah Avenue and a selection of Perth's finest private schools. The unlimited potential of this superb site is what will attract astute buyers - it will accommodate a plethora of luxury home designs with potential river views from upper levels, coupled with the substantial landholding in one of Perth's most prestigious riverside suburbs. Alternatively, retain the solid and history-filled original home and bring it to life with a contemporary re-style.
