Surprise, surprise! One home - or two?

In a quiet, secluded spot in Melville is a contemporary and elegant two-storey home with beautifully-finished interiors, additional upstairs living with the river and the city skyline in view, delightful alfresco and easy courtyard gardens. This is a very desirable home with a fresh contemporary feel and a big surprise: a fabulously flexible layout which you can configure as you choose - one home, or two?

One side of the home has its own entry, opening to a timber-floored, very spacious two-bedroom guest residence with its own outdoor areas and garage. This is perfect for extended family or intergenerational living, with as much independence as you wish. Alternatively the guest residence could be a great income stream for those astute buyers looking to earn extra money! Or, you can easily open it up to flow into the main home, creating one big, beautiful family home with the advantage of good separation between spaces and lots of room and flexibility for everyone to live their lives and pursue their passions.

The heart of the main home is the vast open-plan living, with north-facing study nook, wall-mounted gas log fire and designer light fittings suspended over the dining table. The gleaming new kitchen features white glass splashbacks, bench stone tops, superb charcoal-coloured Schock sinks in the island bench, Smeg integrated oven, six-burner cooktop, built-
in microwave and integrated Bosch dishwasher. The mix of white gloss and grey timber cupboards and drawers is a real design feature, and the wall of pantry storage means there is room for everything. The kitchen and the living area open seamlessly to the alfresco, with its white timber-ceilings and see-through blinds, set in pristine easy-care courtyard gardens.

Behind the kitchen is a butler's pantry and laundry, both glamorous and practical, with a huge rectangular porcelain sink, green glass splashbacks for a stylish flash of colour, lots of storage, direct external access and an internal door to the double garage.

Also on the ground floor is a light-filled study with ceiling fan and the crisp white plantation shutters which are found throughout the home.

Up the timber stairs is a generous living space looking out over a slice of the Swan River with the city skyline rising on the horizon. This is a restful retreat adjacent to the master suite, with large walk-in-robe and en-suite with double vanity, oval bath and separate toilet.

Downstairs, beyond the open-plan living, is the fabulous bonus of the two-bedroom guest residence which can be opened up to flow into the main home, or kept separate.
The glossy new white kitchen incorporates a European laundry, and has a stone island bench wide enough for dining, opening to the generous living room with gas log fire and double doors to its own alfresco. The kitchen also opens to its own cosy high-walled courtyard at the rear. The timber-floored master bedroom has a walk-in-robe, large en-suite and a separate powder room with dual access. Beyond the living area is a large second bedroom with access to a single garage.

Schools, the river, cafes and restaurants are all in walking distance, shopping and public transport are conveniently close by and all the action of historic Fremantle is ten minutes down the road.

Everything has been considered here, in a stylish home designed to perfection for total flexibility, to suit the shape of your family and the way you want to live.
