Fabulous family space with views and studio

OFFERS CLOSING ON TUESDAY 19TH DECEMBER AT 5:00PM UNLESS SOLD PRIOR

Everybody has a place to live, work, play and socialise indoors and out in this embracing family home on an oversized quarter-acre block one street back from the river. With wonderful views across the water to the city skyline, fabulous poolside entertaining, an expansive upstairs master suite, three living areas and a separate, self-contained timber cottage in the big backyard, you'll love the flexibility and the warm family atmosphere. Totally transformed and extended on the bones of a 1950's brick house, it is full of light with lovely outlooks everywhere and great flow from inside to out. The enormous cellar, with extensive bespoke timber wine storage and a bar, is the coolest place for a drink this summer. Or you can sit out on the northern deck overlooking the front garden with treetop views beyond and glimpses of the ocean, while the teenagers are partying by the pool out back.

The home is set back above the street, with a fresh grey exterior and perfect gardens featuring flourishing white roses and a row of olive trees. The timber-floored lobby opens to the north-facing living area, with the dining room beyond, where sliding doors lead to the front veranda. There are three bedrooms on this level, featuring original timber floors - one overlooks the front garden with big windows for the northern light, and another opens to the pool area at the rear. The recently renovated family bathroom is sleek and fresh in grey, white and timber. From the updated kitchen with its stone bench tops and stainless steel appliances , step down to a casual living area, and beyond is another bathroom accessed from inside and out, for post-swim showers. Upstairs, the master suite is a wonderful open plan space, where the living area and the bedroom offer sweeping views across the curving river to the city skyline, and over to Leighton. The walk-through robe leads to a spacious white bathroom with circular spa, again with big windows and long leafy outlooks.

This home really wraps around the solar-heated pool and the outdoor entertaining spaces: several shady sitting areas including an alfresco with a built-in barbecue and surrounded by tropical plantings. Up the limestone steps to the big back lawn and gardens, there's a large garden shed, huge shady tree and a completely self-contained one-bedroom timber cottage with timber floors, kitchen with laundry incorporated, a white ensuite bathroom and its own entertaining deck. This is just perfect for guests or extended family.

Philip Street is secluded and quiet, with hardly any through traffic and the relaxing riverside life there to be enjoyed every day. Walk to tennis or the yatch club or through Blackwall Reach to Point Walter, or be in Fremantle in five minutes, and come home to space, relaxation and views in this warm and welcoming family home.
