GRAND wrought-iron gates and a sweeping tree-lined drive are a stunning introduction to this sumptuous home in Bassendean.
The terraced gardens on this one-acre property slope down to a private jetty – the last to be approved on the Swan River – and if you fancy a game of tennis you have your own private court.
Spread over three-levels with six bedrooms and four bathrooms, the house is opulent without being ostentatious.
Masses of windows serve up serene views of the river and a forest of paperbarks on the opposite bank.
The golden timber beams in the cathedral ceiling cast a warm hue over the open-plan; a sweeping space that will have the most extravagant party-thrower reaching for their vol-au-vent.
The deluxe kitchen has masses of timber-fronted cupboards, a sweep of granite bench tops, a spacious walk-in pantry and a scullery.
And it doesn’t get much more decadent than the massive timber-roofed alfresco, which has a heated infinity pool and spa.
Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, including a main which has an en suite and river views.
Nearby is a study and a second lounge, where a wall of glass overlooks the pool and river.
Head upstairs and you’ll find the rest of the bedrooms (two have en suite facilities) and a spacious study or play room.
Last but not least is the lower-ground floor – the ultimate man cave.
There you’ll find a full-sized billiard table, a cellar and a games room with access to the pool.
If you’re feeling thirsty mid-swim, dive down and tap on the massive window behind the bar and order a Martini.
This dream riverside home is perfect for a boating enthusiast, and the lush grounds are so impressive a ride-on mower is included in the price.
You could be miles from anywhere, but this North Road home is only 15 minutes from Perth and there’s plenty of schools and shops close by.
