SPACIOUS, ELEGANT AND IMPRESSIVE IN EVERY WAY - TENNIS ANYONE?
Please call for a private inspection. Virtual 3D tour and video are available for viewing.
Sprawled on a massive 1,526sqm (approx.) block directly opposite the exceptional Presbyterian Ladies’ College and boasting a professional full-size tennis court at the rear, this stunningly-renovated two-storey family home defines family comfort in every way possible – and best of all, only walking distance to The Esplanade and the picturesque Swan River Foreshore Reserve.
The property’s splendid north-facing backyard aspect sets the scene for the excellence lying within – headlined by the floodlit artificial tennis court with its own safety net to stop the balls from interfering with your guests mingling under the alfresco. Outdoor entertaining is enhanced by the sparkling below-ground salt-water swimming pool that is “summer ready” for everyone to make a splash in.
Downstairs and beyond the valet portico entrance, gorgeous double French doors reveal a beautifully-tiled formal lounge room with an open fireplace – linked to the light, bright and adjacent formal dining room by a separate set of bi-fold French doors. The open-plan family and meals area doubles as the central hub of the house, preceding the back family room with its stylish light fittings, quality Corian bench tops, sleek tap fittings, double Franke sinks, a water filter, an appliance nook, a double pull-out pantry, an island breakfast bar, a Neff Induction cooktop, an integrated range hood, double Neff ovens and a stainless-steel Asko dishwasher for good measure.
The wildcard within the lower-level floor plan is a separate “guest” wing where a fully-tiled third bathroom meets a versatile fifth bedroom-come-studio apartment, comprising of a New York loft-style fold-out bed, additional built-in storage and easy alfresco access – the perfect space for a teenager or even an au-pair to call their own. Upstairs, there is a huge custom home office, but the headline act is a huge carpeted master suite with a northern outlook from its private double French-door Juliet balcony, a remote-controlled awning for protection from the elements and a fitted “his and hers” walk-in wardrobe, leading into a deluxe fully-tiled ensuite bathroom with a walk-in double shower, twin stone vanities and a separate floor-to-ceiling-tiled toilet.
Walk to Cottesloe Medical Centre, The Grove Library and Cottesloe Central Shopping Centre from this residence’s enviable position that is also very close to Cottesloe Primary School, the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club, restaurants, bus stops, Cottesloe Train Station and glorious Cottesloe Beach. Also nearby is the world-class Claremont Quarter Shopping precinct, St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls, Iona Presentation College, Christ Church Grammar School and the Peppermint Grove Tennis Club.
