CALL TO VIEW THIS WEEK! WILL BE SOLD!
On top of Castle Hill rising above Blackwall Reach, is a wonderfully individual sanctuary designed to make the most of the undulating landscape and to embrace the extraordinary views. Set on 408sqm of highly sought after land, the atmosphere is completely serene, with an array of versatile spaces for living, working and entertaining - all just two minutes' walk down to the water's edge in one of Perth's most exclusive lifestyle locations.
The owners have cherished every day in this wonderful home gazing through the north facing panoramic windows of the blackbutt-floored open-plan kitchen and living areas across to Chidley Point, to Claremont and to Peppermint Grove, over the wide expanse of the Swan and a restful green treed landscape. They've enjoyed sunny days and balmy evenings from the dining area where the views continue, opening to a deck looking down to the river. Above the dining area is a large mezzanine bedroom or living space, with bathroom adjacent. There is built-in timber seating on the mezzanine, part of the thoughtful custom cabinetry found throughout the home.
A few steps down take you to two bedrooms which share access to another viewing deck. Both bedrooms have Tasmanian oak floors and fabulous views, and one is so large that it could serve as a studio. There is also a big laundry and bathroom on this level, as well as a powder room off the lobby.
The surprises continue, with a very spacious lower level studio that has both internal and external access. This is the perfect, versatile space for working at home in a private setting. The studio has its own gated entry from the street and opens to its own secluded courtyard.
There are more delightful spaces at the rear of the home, as stone steps lead down to a charming courtyard garden with saltwater pool, fishpond, a little stone waterfall, a raised seating area sheltered by a huge umbrella, an outdoor shower, plus a hideaway limestone-walled grotto, which makes an unusually atmospheric entertaining area. There is also a storage undercroft here, as well as two more storage rooms in the home: one adjacent to the studio and one off the garage.
The river is part of your everyday life here: stand at the kitchen bench and watch the yachts, launch your kayak from the beach or take the cycle path around to Point Walter. Perched in an extraordinary setting, this is a serene home of wonderful versatility and full of hidden marvels.
