MASTERPIECE ON WATER’S EDGE
ON the edge of the Canning River is this masterpiece residence, originally constructed in 1988 by renowned builder Les Friday Homes.
The owners, who have lived here the past nine years, have since upgraded the home.
“In 2010, we added the fully enclosed, allweather outdoor entertainment area, which is fitted with retractable blinds, a spa and water feature,” they said.
“Two years ago, we changed the flooring in the kitchen, dining room, home office and entrance.
“We also had a new kitchen installed with reconstituted stone benchtops, Miele appliances including a coffee station and double wall ovens, and a window to let in natural light and views of the bushland.”
It is this top location, on an 839sq m block on the fringe of Bodkin Park, which also offers a placid lifestyle against the backdrop of the sounds from the local fauna.
The luxurious home complements this perfectly with the high-end finishes throughout the generously-sized living areas.
There are five bedrooms, including the downstairs guest room with ensuite and walkin robe.
The master bedroom with ensuite is upstairs and connects to a lovely sitting room and balcony with views to the river and beyond.
Central to the ground floor is the open-plan kitchen/dining/living area, which offers easy indoor/outdoor integration with the alfresco space through bi-fold doors.
This cedar-lined barbecue area will be a hit in summer and has uninterrupted views of the swimming pool.
“We all love the outside area and try to relax as often as possible in our spa,” the owners said.
“And there is no need for the constant use of an airconditioner as we get a lovely, fresh river breeze.
