SITUATED by the Maylands foreshore, this tranquil home is the essence of peaceful living.
Looking like a single storey from the street, I was surprised coming through the private courtyard to find a spectacular two-storey home overlooking the Swan River.
This cleverly designed home really does take your breath away, with an open alfresco and balcony overlooking tree-filled parklands and the river; and with its barbecue and outdoor fridge it’s the perfect summer entertainment space.
The house has fantastic natural light and openness. Even the main bedroom has bi-fold doors overlooking the living room and balcony. That means you can wake up to a view of the sunlight glimmering on the river and the sound of birdsong.
For more gloomy days you can roll down the shutters to the alfresco and balcony and still hang out there, as they’re equipped with heaters to keep the chill at bay.
The ensuite to the main bedroom is a standout, with plenty of storage and a his and her sink. The timber and chic tiling gives it a stylish Balinese vibe.
The kitchen is a cook’s dream, with a large, stone curved bench in the centre, double dishwasher, double oven, walk in pantry and enough storage to neatly hide all you kitchen bits and bobs!
The second and third bedrooms are located downstairs as well as a lounge room and a kitchenette — perfect for some privacy away from the main living area.
Both bedrooms are spacious, with one of them sharing the view to the backyard, waking up to the beautiful sight of greenery gleaming in through the large double doors.
Innovative is an understatement to describe the backyard. It’s situated on a downwards slope with a small grassed area, and gorgeous, plant-covered stone ledges lead you down towards the river. Just open the back gate and you’re ready for your morning jog along the river path.
The garage has a double carport and the highest roof I’ve ever seen, with a bike rack on the wall and kayak and/or boat storage attached to the ceiling.
With the house less than a minute from the Maylands Yacht Club you’ll be parading your inner yachtie in no time.
