This elegant two-storey home right on the riverfront in Waterford, has panoramic River views across open parkland to the Canning River, which is totally uninterrupted due to the absence of any tall trees. Enjoy the exceptionally quiet street this riverfront location offers due to the extremely low passing traffic, ensuring a whisper quiet location so you can take in the sights and sounds of the passing dolphins and various birdlife that frequent the area.
This double-storey Federation-style home is beautiful in its own right, however it's this riverside location that makes it an exceptional home, immersed in a pocket of lush parkland that includes neighbouring Challenger Reserve and Bodkin Park, and yet is just a 15 drive minutes from the city.
The home itself is quite unique; crafted from textured limestone bricks, perfectly accompanied by its wrap around veranda and balcony that overlooks the properties lush, manicured gardens.
Inside you are welcomed by a crisp white entry that is contrasted beautifully with rich polished timber floors and both are enhanced with leadlight feature windows and high ornate ceilings throughout.
There are four spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and a powder room. Three bedrooms are upstairs with an Activity/ Games room for the children that opens onto a generously sized upstairs wrap around balcony, perfect for unwinding with your favourite wine, whilst you enjoy the breathtaking river views at the end of a long day.
The master bedroom and main living spaces are downstairs. The enormous master bedroom showcases an ornamental fireplace and bay window with views to the river making it the ideal master suite. The well-appointed master ensuite has a corner spa and granite benchtops.
Also, downstairs, the formal lounge and dining rooms flow easily - there's even a bar and double French doors that open to the front wrap around veranda for a sunset drink with friends whilst you soak up the stunning views across the water.
The informal dining room and lounge flow off the kitchen and onto the rear manicured gardens complete with roses and cubby house that's well shaded for the kids. Dining outside under the gazebo in the garden is a delight, with its big shady trees and all the wonderful birdlife they support. There's also a large study downstairs with easily enough room for two to work comfortably.
Built to last on a large 800sqm block, this breathtaking location is largely an undiscovered gem that always captivates those who are lucky enough to experience it.
If you want to be close to the city but surrounded by the River, vast parklands and nearby to both tennis & bowls clubs, plus renowned private and local schools, Curtin University as well as local and major shopping precincts, then this is the one you've been looking for.
