17 First Street,
Where Your Family Comes First!Are you looking for a home that put's your family first? Well, you may have found it!
This classic 1950's house has been completely renovated into this stylish contemporary family home while still retaining all the warmth and character from the era. Jarrah boards and trims gleam through the original front of the home. The formal lounge has been converted into a very welcome parent's retreat with French doors opening out to the pool. Across the hall is a sumptuous master suite with a brand new ensuite with double shower, double basins and plantation shutter doors. Just around the corridor, there is another original bedroom, which would make a fabulous nursery for younger children, or a quiet study.
The kitchen and dining is the heart of the home, with the sun bringing in tonnes of colour through the fabulous leadlight window. There is heaps of bench space, cupboards and a table that seats 8 making this the place to have meet the family for breakfast or sit after work with a coffee. Then through to the modern extension. Here the floor transitions with a steel finish to stair leading up to the teen wing and down to the massive living area. This space is multifunctional. A huge lounge, big enough for a theatre, or a smaller allocated lounge, a study nook or the kid's play space. The main bath comes off the landing and is just like entering a luxurious day spa with a spacious shower, double vanity and a huge spa bath. You'll love coming home after work and soaking with a glass of wine!
The teen wing is really an awesome use of space. Three double bedrooms with robes, study nooks and all with great natural light. There is also a cosy nook, teen lounge, great for movies and friends or even better, playing computer games. Upstairs is also a powder room to make life easier.
Outside is the outdoor living where a lot of time will be spent. Large glass doors open out into the undercover area large enough for the extended family and surrounded by greenery making a private haven. If you're after some sun, the rest of the yard basks in the northern sun and the pool sparkles in the corner. Enough space for kids, dogs, family and friend as every bit of land has been well used defying you to believe this is a half block!
Every corner has been utilised as on the other side of the house is a vegie garden and two sheds ready for the home handyman. The single lock up garage provides extra storage and the gates are bifold to fit a number of cars behind them easily. However, for friends and kids as they get older, there is heaps of verge parking underneath the huge Eucalypt.
This is a home that is perfectly zoned for growing a family. Perfectly private from the street, the kids can play in safety. The home is warm and loving with the ability to have all the kids downstairs near the master early on and progressively move them into their domain upstairs in time. With a parent's retreat, huge family living space, outdoor entertaining and a teen retreat, you have ample spaces for escape for everyone in the family along with enough room for everyone to come together.
Surrounded by a lovely leafy suburb and beautiful homes, you are 700m to Blackwall Reach for paddle boarding, swimming, kayaking and bouldering and just over a kilometre from Point Walter Reserve. You're also close to Bicton Primary School, Melville Plaza, ten minutes from Fremantle and an easy distance to the city.
This is a fabulous home for growing your family and enjoying all Bicton has to offer. Come and see if this home puts your family first!
