235 The Esplanade


Iconic builder's 70 year old generational family home is presented to the market for the very first time.

The original stunning block was chosen in 1953 by the owner for its sweeping uninterrupted views of the Perth City skyline and the magic of the swan river.

The original 2 bed bungalow was built by hand by the owner and moved into on the couple's first night of marriage. Over the decades this home has been extensively renovated and extended by Peter Overman and Architects in the 1970's to now house a 5 bedroom, four bathroom family home with a magnificent garden.

The couple loved the location so much they purchased the block next door in the 1980's to fulfill their dream of a terraced garden and `Summer House'.

This property offers you and your loved one's a once in a lifetime opportunity to secure a massive 3,046 sqm riverfront land holding in one of the best locations, within one of Perth's most sought after suburbs.

Apart from the magnificent river and city views you have the added bonus of stunning parkland right next door and exciting zoning and subdivision possibilities.

This family haven provides you and your loved ones with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure a mega riverfront land holding along one of the very best positions within one of Perth's most prestigious suburbs.

Step inside to discover charm at every turn, including architecturally-inspired updates to the central kitchen.

The entry foyer sets the tone for grandeur, leading seamlessly into a spacious open-plan formal area, adorned with an open wood fireplace and bar, perfect for entertaining. Marvel at the panoramic vista from here, while the open-plan kitchen and meals area next door dazzles with sparkling granite benchtops and integrated appliances.

Indoor-outdoor living is a breeze with an enclosed sunroom off the kitchen and a huge covered alfresco entertaining area beside the shimmering outdoor swimming pool. Additional highlights include a massive master bedroom retreat with a park/city outlook to savour and wake up to, a fully-tiled main family bathroom and a separate "summer house", doubling as an enclosed gazebo for further entertaining.

There is also what is essentially a 1x1 "flat" at the back of the house, made up of the fifth bedroom, a fourth bathroom-come-laundry, a kitchenette and separate internal and external entry points.

Outside, leafy established gardens create a serene oasis with an enormous remote-controlled four-car lock-up garage and workshop/ storage space. With bonus rear cul-de-sac access and an amazing 40.24-metre riverside frontage.

Stroll to local cafes and restaurants, shopping, parks and public transport. This dream Esplanade location also finds itself close to the freeway, the Applecross and Rossmoyne Senior High Schools (dual catchment zones), Aquinas College, Penrhos College and Santa Maria College. Your riverside paradise has been found - and something very special is about to unfold!
