A South West Escape in Subiaco
Simply magnificent! An enchanting renovated and extended 1930's character residence, believed to have been the hospital matron's home, on a rare double lot 642sqm landholding in one of Subiaco's most sought-after streets, and perfectly positioned in a coveted 'central to everything' location. Within catchment for Subiaco Primary School and Bob Hawke College, walking distance to upper Rokeby Road café precinct, restaurants and bars, Subiaco Primary Farmer's Market, boutique shopping, Subiaco Theatre Gardens and Kings Park.
Set behind a quintessential white picket fence in lovely, waterwise native gardens, the charming double gable façade remains intact with its four pillared verandah, red tile roof, chimney and white framed windows. Inside, a beautiful fusion of old and new, skillfully designed by award winning architect Debra Brown; with soaring ceilings, wide jarrah floorboards, elaborate plasterwork ceilings, picture rails, stained glass casement windows and decorative timber fretwork rest easily alongside chic bathrooms, the stunning master suite of rooms, and contemporary family living spaces at the rear.
The original front of the home hosts two substantial bedrooms with built in robes, one with a beautiful plasterwork ceiling, the other with original stained glass French doors opening to the verandah and sleek, stylish family bathroom. The spectacular master bedroom is a heavenly blend of old and new with high ceilings and traditional picture rails; and a deep timber lined window seat with vast picture window looking out to a blissful open-air shower and deep bath set within the bounds of a high recycled brick courtyard for privacy. The exquisite master en-suite is a striking contrast of light and dark, with stunning Marri vanity, walk in double shower and separate WC. A black framed door, set within a wall of glass offers a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor bathroom. A second, mirrored door opens into a large laundry/storeroom which can also be accessed via a door from the garden.
French doors mark the transition into glorious light filled open plan areas at the rear - a magnificent living room with soaring ceiling, generous dining area, a second separate living/TV/playroom for the kids and sizeable, superbly appointed white on white kitchen with L shaped waterfall edge island, casual seating, banks of white cabinetry a suite of Miele appliances and pressed tin splashback as a lovely nod to the home's origins.
Stacking doors within floor to ceiling glass open to a jarrah deck with timber recycled from the Fremantle Maritime Museum, and beyond, a substantial travertine paved entertaining area with beautiful jarrah lined ceiling and plenty of space for both alfresco dining and relaxing on the lounge plus loads of room for the kids and dog to play on the lawn. There's the ultimate independent working from home space away from the main residence - a self-contained, double-glazed, air-conditioned home office with separate entry, and a bonus, multifunction room with separate WC that was once the original garage and could be used for a teenage retreat/kids' hangout, renovated to become a 4th bedroom with en-suite, or the ideal space for short term guests.
63 Hamersley Road simply tops the lot. An absolute winner in the family stakes, with everything spacious, stylished and family focused about this home. A fabulous, family sized block, all the conveniences of location and a skillfully considered renovation and extension perfectly designed for effortless, modern living at its best.
