“ORIGINAL TUDOR HOME”
VIEW BY APPOINTMENT
Located on a sprawling corner block in one of Perth's most prestigious riverside enclaves, this iconic and historic architecturally designed Tudor-style cottage (known as Bon Secours: "good help') is fondly adored by neighbouring residents and passers-by alike.
For children and teenagers, this would surely be the home dreams are made of. Huge towering trees to climb and explore, masses of green, lush lawn to play cricket or boules, a swimming pool for summer enjoyment, loft-style bedrooms and just a bike ride to the river, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is undoubtedly the quintessential family retreat.
Framed by a wrought-iron gate and rounded timber door, the dramatic entrance foyer, with a generous ceiling arch, marble flooring and views to a jarrah staircase, set the scene for the style mood beyond.
With its steeply pitched roof, and leadlight and casement windows (and doors), the ground floor is dedicated entirely to practical family living, and one conjures up images of magical garden parties, poolside soirees and legendary dinner parties in the many spaces it provides.
An enclosed and private garden leads to a lush, poolside oasis which is the main view from many of the rear living spaces. The large kitchen, with split-system air-conditioner, ample timber cupboards and drawers, double Bosch oven, five burner gas burner, and Fisher and Paykel dishwasher, along with a light-filled sun room (with split-system air-conditioner and surrounded by French doors and windows), a formal dining room and a sunken den or office, all enjoy access and views to these relaxing garden aesthetics and protected alfresco.
Most of the original jarrah flooring, ceiling roses and cornices remain, and other features on the ground level include a spacious, formal living room, with fireplace (split-system air-conditioner) and a generous bay window framing front garden views, a smaller TV or playroom off the kitchen and the large master suite - tucked away from view, with built-in-robes and drawers, split-system air-conditioner and access to a private bathroom with travertine-look tiles and additional plumbing installed for a bathtub.
Beyond the sisal-clad staircase are the remaining three bedrooms (two with split system air-conditioners) - all with a "loft-like" appeal due to vaulted ceilings or exposed beams, jarrah floors and generous windows. There is also a light-filled ensuite bathroom and a shared double vanity bathroom with marble tiles and shower/tub.
Other features include a detached wet room and laundry (wash house), a discreetly located drying court, double carport with off-street parking, fully reticulated garden, window/door locks and electronic security, and a gas bayonet in the sunroom.
