Located in the heart of leafy Peppermint Grove, surrounded by some of WA's most beautiful and historic properties, this single story open plan home is ready to live in, rent, renovate or redevelop into your own private estate.
As you drive down the long green driveway to your very own sanctuary, you can leave the rest of the busy world behind. Set back on a large secure battle axe block, the only sounds you will hear are the chirping of birds and leaves blowing gently in the breeze.
Established eucalyptus, olive and peppermint trees in and around the property create a calming and secluded atmosphere. With its north-south orientation, there is an abundance of shade or sunlight in either the large front or back garden. Tucked back off the road, the gardens are private and secure, so you can rest easy knowing kids and dogs have plenty of space to play freely and safely.
Build in 1974, the home itself has touches of mid-century architectural flair, with its white brick exterior and a U-shaped floor plan which wraps around a central courtyard. The central atrium is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows creating a wonderful focal point and allows plenty of light to flow through the home. All-weather louvers can be opened or shut to protect from the rain or sun. With a bit of design ingenuity, this home could be transformed into an architectural delight.
A large open-plan kitchen, dining and family room are connected to a sheltered patio and the grassed front yard, providing great indoor-outdoor connection. From the kitchen bench you can see out to the lawn and the raised limestone garden beds beyond. A separated living room with northern aspects provides another, more private living zone.
Three bedrooms are located down one wing of the home. The master suite, with ensuite, has north-facing views of the garden and all bedrooms are equipped with built-in robes. Also along this wing is the second bathroom and separate powder room.
The gardens wrap around the entire house and can be enjoyed from every room. There is also a double carport out the back which can be accessed from the R.O.W.
If you are looking to build, this is the perfect block for your dream estate; almost 1000sqm of flat, private and secure land, surrounded by trees, with no overlooking neighbours. The R.O.W. allows for dual access, allowing you to build in a way to maximise the benefits of the north-south orientation.
Whether you're after natural beauty and outdoor spaces, or convenience, cafes, bars, restaurants and boutique shopping, you will find all of this and more at your fingertips. Manners Hill Park, Peppermint Grove Tennis Club, Cottesloe Primary School, St Hilda's, Cottesloe Train station, Boatshed Market, The Grove Library, Cottesloe Central and the Napoleon Street shopping precinct are walking distance away.
A 5 minute stroll down the road and you'll find yourself at one of the most beautiful bays of the Swan River. Enjoy a morning coffee at Freshwaters Cafe or a leisurely stroll with a backdrop of boats gently rocking and majestic black swans floating on by.
This is one of Perth's favourite picnic spots for good reason; clean, shallow water, shade from the beautiful old fig trees and protected from the sea breeze. Grab some fish and chips and ice creams or become a member of the family-friendly Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club and enjoy dinner and drinks as the sun sets on another idyllic day.
This property provides an entry point into prestigious Peppermint Grove with endless possibilities to make this your sanctuary.
