78 Eric Street,
SOLD AT AUCTIONWith a casual contemporary feel and a choice of living and entertaining areas, this relaxed Cottesloe home is created for everyone to find their own space -
when they're not at the beach, that is.
Here you're close enough to the water to walk down with your surfboard, knowing that you're coming home to a low-maintenance modern home in an unbeatable location.
Walk to the train, primary school and shopping while enjoying the quiet interiors of a home cleverly designed for both flow and separation.
With interesting architectural shapes rendered in contemporary colours and set back from the street, the home sits behind a limestone wall and automatic gate. The path winds past a magnificent grass tree and through the big black front door to the lobby.
Pale timber floors lead down to the living area, kitchen and dining room, wrapped around a courtyard lined with ferns and cottonwood hibiscus trees, with long table dining under the shade cloths.
Beyond the kitchen is a bathroom/laundry, then another living area where timber stairs lead to a large loft mezzanine bedroom with high northern windows. This area is an ideal teen retreat, as the living space below the mezzanine opens to its own rear, paved deck and courtyard. Here there is rear access from a laneway, with a wide parking bay for car, boat, caravan or even space for a basketball hoop or trampoline.
At the front of the home on ground level is a carpeted study, powder room and internal door to the double garage.
Up another set of timber stairs is the bedroom zone: master suite with balcony, walk-through robe, and en-suite in aqua, green, white and pale timber, with spa and separate toilet.
Another two bedrooms have leafy outlooks to Norfolk Island pines and gum trees, and another bathroom, with bath, shares the beachy aqua decor.
The train is a short walk away, giving easy access to private schools along the train line, the home is in the Shenton College catchment, you can walk to North Cottesloe Primary, the Eric St shopping centre is close by ... and of course, just down the road, the beach beckons.
