The humble and quaint cottage façade of this ANZAC character residence gives no hint of the beauty that lies within. Originally owned by the Gugeri family who were well known wine merchants, it has been lovingly extended over the years by previous owners. A bullnose verandah fronts the home and easy care cottage gardens remain in theme with the era of the home. Step through the stunning leadlight front door however, and it is immediately obvious that this is a home of quality and proportion.
The wide central hallway with pressed tin walls boasts soaring ceilings that are a feature throughout the home. Stunning original Jarrah wide- board flooring provides the perfect complement to classic and crisp décor.
The ground floor of the home comprises 2 gorgeous bedrooms that share the use of a large family bathroom with separate powder room. The original formal lounge at the front of the home makes a perfect cosy second living area but would serve equally well as a fourth bedroom if required.
Wander through to the main living zone of the home. The eye is immediately drawn to the bank of bi-fold doors which span the kitchen and dining room providing a stunning outlook over the al fresco deck and to the River Plain beyond. The magnificent kitchen is the hub of this impressive space. Imposing Jarrah beams frame the granite island bench which is complete with breakfast bar lending a rustic edge to this sleek and contemporary space. The kitchen is complete with masses of cupboards, a butlers pantry or scullery, 900mm free standing ILVE range cooker and Miele dishwasher.
The adjoining main living room is resplendent with a large fireplace and built in window seats. A cosy study nook is tucked in behind the impressive Jarrah staircase which provides access to the master suite on the top level. The master suite is simply stunning and enjoys magical views from the private deck over the gardens and the lush River plains to the Swan River. It has a large walk in robe and an ensuite with over-sized shower and a spa bath.
Wander out from the kitchen and dining areas to the al fresco deck. Towering Jarrah supports here create a space of breathtaking dimensions and have been cleverly designed to create a statement without detracting from the true hero of this outdoor space which is the stunning outlook. A sparkling lap pool takes pride of place in the easy care gardens, providing a splash of blue against the green landscape. One can just imagine entertaining family and friends whilst the kids splash in the pool or use the gated private access from the property to explore the River and parklands.
Located just a short stroll from the café strip, Guildford Grammar and with great public transport at the doorstep, this lovely character residence offers all one could desire from a Guildford address.
