MAS­TER­PIECE ON WA­TER’S EDGE

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

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.
