Set on a sweeping corner block within lush, established gardens, this grand four-bedroom, three-bathroom home combines the best of mid-century architecture with an ideal layout for family life and entertaining. With the added bonus of a fully self-contained apartment for guests, family members or perhaps an au-pair, this rare offering also boasts an enviable location close to everything that laidback, leafy Floreat has to offer.
There is no work to be done here: the home has been fully renovated and extended with high-spec, timeless finishes, full-height ceilings and a practical free-flowing layout that will make living here a joy year-round.
The north-facing front gardens provide a relaxed and peaceful sanctuary from the moment you enter, with mature jacaranda and frangipani trees, vibrant agapanthus and viburnum perimeter hedging providing a private and secure space for children to play while adults enjoy a clear vantage point from the shady verandah.
A spacious entrance leads through leadlight French doors to a formal lounge room with original fireplace and then onto to a delightful, light and airy open-plan living area. Displaying all the hallmarks of the art deco era, the original jarrah floor boards, timber framed windows and exquisite decorative ceilings have been lovingly restored and maintained, while sympathetic extensions deliver an ideal floor plan for modern families.
The luxury Hampton's-style kitchen boasts a vast Spanish marble-topped island bench, an imported Stoves double oven and a myriad of storage options, all overlooking an expansive dining area, perfect for convivial gatherings and family meals, with clear views to the pool for keeping an eye on the children.
French doors lead from the family zone to a sheltered alfresco deck overlooking the pool. The alfresco areas wrap around the home and have Vergola roofs for winter sun/summer shade, while the salt water pool is solar heated and surrounded by lush, easy care gardens.
A private bedroom wing holds three bedrooms, including a main suite with a walk-in robe, an exquisite ensuite with floor-to-ceiling tiling and French doors opening out to a peaceful garden, shaded by a majestic old magnolia tree. A family bathroom and shared study space with built-in desks, creates a quiet and secluded retreat away from the main living areas.
A rarity among homes in the area, this property includes a fully renovated, self-contained apartment under the main roof, comprising a bedroom, ensuite bathroom, kitchen and living area, plus a private courtyard overlooking the pool. Perfect for guests, family members, an au-pair or even a home office, this is a beautifully appointed space and a very special bonus. Alternatively, simple alterations could return the apartment back into the main dwelling.
The central Floreat location brings you within easy walking distance of Floreat Primary School, the local kindergarten, Floreat Forum, the library, tennis clubs and the Birkdale Street shopping precinct. Positioned in the current Churchlands Senior High School zone, the home sits in the proposed 2020 extension of the Shenton College catchment. Beaches are a 5 minute drive away and Perth CBD is a 10 minute drive or short commute with bus services providing an easy connection for city workers.
