Get ahead of the Bayswater revival
SITUATED a hop, step and a jump from Bayswater’s town centre, this gorgeous, architecturally designed home lets you enjoy the area’s redevelopment without having to live cheek-by-jowl with the neighbours.
A new, futuristic Metronet train station is on its way and the town centre’s getting a major WA government-led revamp with new apartments adding vibrancy and boosting local businesses.
But apartment living isn’t for everyone, so 1 Georgina Street is perfectly positioned to gain all the benefits of a bustling CBD without the disruptions.
There’s a bit of a mini-revival already happening in the street: Two of the neighbouring properties are in the process of getting their own architecturally designed homes, meaning Georgina will be a bit of a showstopper come the end of the year.
And this one certainly has the “wow” factor.
The first impression is of a home snuggled into the hillside; as though it’s trying to find harmony with the landscape rather than trample on it.
It’s a one-level home (great if you’re not a big fan of lugging stuff up stairs), but some clever use of vertical elements at the front gives it some “depth”.
Inside, blackbutt floors and black-framed windows give it a sleek, modern feel, while the master retreat (yep, it’s way more than a bedroom) would give many a luxury hotel a run for its money.
In fact, there’s talk that Summit was so impressed by their own efforts that they’re looking to make this one of their feature properties.
The central open-plan living area is flooded with natural light, courtesy of the floor-to-ceiling doors that open onto a cosy alfresco.
Filling out the 300sqm block are two more double bedrooms, an office space, a big kitchen and laundry, double garage and reticulated front gardens.
And if you need a bit more greenery, may we suggest that in these times of social distancing and police drones, the Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary is probably the most relaxing, de-stressing place on Earth. It’s just around the corner.
