CRYSTAL clear water sparkles either side of a timber boardwalk as you approach the auspicious front door of this elegant townhouse in East Perth.
A red door is good feng shui and this one adds to the calming zen ambience as you step inside this Wittenoom Street home.
The entry is backlit by a flood of natural light, thanks to soaring walls of glass. It opens up into the main living area, which wraps around a central alfresco with a massive built-in-barbecue and a mature tree which provides plenty of shade in the summer.
Just off the entry is a formal lounge/theatre room with double glass doors opening onto a front courtyard.
In the kitchen there is an island bench/breakfast bar with a white stone top, and red panelling adds a dramatic splash of colour to the white cupboards, drawers and walk-in-pantry.
Preparing meals will be a cinch, thanks to the stainless steel benches next to the stove and sinks.
Three of the bedrooms are on the second floor, including the huge main, with its city-facing balcony and walk-in-robe.
The stylish double vanities in the en suite were hand-made by a Fremantle artisan.
A fourth bedroom is on the third floor – a massive loft with under-eave storage and city views.
Set amid the pleasant leafy streets of East Perth you’d hardly know this abode is on the doorstep of eateries, shops and bars.
The Swan River, Optus Stadium and the WACA are a stone’s throw away and the Perth CBD a mere five minutes by car.
