Superb Riverside North-Facing Landmark - Magnificent Panoramic River Views
Perched on bushland reserve rising from Riverside Road, this landmark home appears to hover above the river: look south to the signal station on Cantonment Hill and to the port cranes, straight ahead across the water to North Fremantle, and around to Mosman Park.
All the boating life offers a fascinating panorama, embraced by the curving walls and windows and wide terraces that are such a feature of this expansive home.
Enter down a long driveway from Preston Point Road to the river end, and discover the Mediterranean curves that mark the architecture. Double door entry leads to a "bridge" crossing a lofty void and looking down to the pool below. An elegant office also seems to float above the pool, with curved windows and the fine bespoke timber cabinetry which adds quality to the interiors throughout.
Designed to maximise the magnificent location, the kitchen, living, dining and bedroom zones all face the water. Polished granite floors add cool luxury, and you step out from the dining space to a vast terrace: roofed alfresco for outdoor dining, plus an open deck for lounging in the sun. Three bedrooms all have spectacular views and terrace access, including the luxurious master suite. This is an expansive retreat, with large walk-through robe and large en-suite including curved shower and spa bath.
Downstairs reveals another fabulous zone for the good life by the river: a vast timber-ceiling space with tropical plantings, a pool large enough for laps, substantial granite and timber bar, shower, powder room, a sauna and plenty of room for a pool table. A wall of glass sliding doors opens to the lower level limestone-walled terrace with more river views.
The garage accommodates three cars, with a glass-walled room for a gym, or a second home office with easy visitor access. If you want an alternative to the curving stairs, approval has been secured for the installation of a lift.
Go boating, fishing, walking, canoeing, cycling, choose to dine at fine waterside restaurants, or welcome family and friends home to entertain in the view. With the seclusion of being perched above it all, here by the river is simply the best place to live.
