The tranquil river views from this contemporary family home are protected and will never be built out which makes this light-filled home a hidden gem that will be snapped up quickly.
166 River Way, Salter Point is tucked away in a suburb that is the ideal combination of central convenience and riverside luxury. This family home with three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study, two living areas and double garage is perched high, taking advantage of the views and nestled amongst other beautiful homes in a stunning location. This riverside secret has been recently renovated to a high standard with newly polished timber floorboards, new carpet, fresh paint and new exposed aggregate driveway.
Hidden away in an often-forgotten pocket of the Canning River, Salter Point is one of Perth's most private riverside suburbs. With some of WA's best schools around the corner and just a short drive to the CBD, everything is easier in this quiet river side suburb. A wonderful community atmosphere with the river on your doorstep means bike rides, kayaking and waterfront picnics will become regular parts of your day.
The entrance to your home opens onto a study on one side and the master suite on the other. This main all-on-one level master suite boasts extensive built-in robes and a large well-designed ensuite with twin vanities and separate toilet.
Stepping beyond the main bedroom is the bright open-plan living, kitchen and meals areas which are flooded with natural light, a feeling of space and views of the river. Your renovated kitchen and breakfast bar with granite benchtops, large pantry and sophisticated Miele oven and SMEG appliances is more than ample to accommodate any MasterChef.
The potbelly stove heating in the loungeroom makes this home a cosy and welcoming place to be during winter while the ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning means that on the days you decide to not light the wood fire you will be warm in winter and cool during summer.
This home makes the most of the incredible climate in Perth and brings the outside inside with a large balcony off the meals area with beautiful river views and cross-ventilation. Downstairs the second living area is extended with a huge, welcoming, private and securely walled courtyard planted with low-maintenance water-wise native gardens and calmed with a trickling water feature.
Tucked away downstairs for privacy are two generous bedrooms with built-in robes and ducted air-conditioning. These comfortable bedrooms share a well-appointed bathroom with a deep bath to relax in and the second living area. The laundry room is also on this lower ground level for easy access to the clothes line.
Whether you want to remain close to the city, send your kids to great schools, dine out often, become an expert stand up paddle boarder, make good on your New Year's resolution to get fit or just take the dog for a walk along the river, 166 River Way Salter Point has everything you could possibly need. Be sure to pencil in a viewing, because modern family homes like this one in this location never last long.
