Treetop river treat. By LUCY RUTHERFORD
Impressive views of Minim Cove, Blackwall Reach and all the activity on the river will be yours in this North Fremantle home.
WITH nothing but trees between you and the Swan River, this elevated, twostorey home has unparalleled water views.
The home capitalises on its location, placing the open-plan living and dining area on the top level with huge windows framing the breathtaking vista and opening directly to the spacious balcony making entertaining a dream.
At the centre of this living zone is the kitchen with marble benchtops, parquetry flooring, wraparound benches, island bench and walk-in larder.
There are built-in speakers throughout these areas and there is a powder room on this floor.
The master bedroom is also tucked away on this level offering the perfect retreat.
It has a walk-in robe and ensuite with marble benchtops and a relaxing spa bath.
A nearby study has built-in storage and desk and opens to a sun-drenched, north facing balcony.
The downstairs can be dedicated to the children or guests with a spacious living area complete with its own kitchenette allowing for self-contained living.
This flows out to a private alfresco area and courtyard garden at the rear and another river-view balcony at the front.
Both downstairs bedrooms have builtin robes and curved glass windows that look out across the treetops.
Also on this level is a bathroom with shower and bath, separate toilet, laundry with drying courtyard.
Entry to the property is through automatic security gates and there is parking for two cars in the garage with remotecontrolled door plus extra space for a boat/trailer. In a peaceful neighbourhood surrounded by quality homes, it is walking distance to North Fremantle's cafe and restaurant scene and a quick drive to top schools such as St Hilda's and Scotch College, Cottesloe, Fremantle and of course the beach. ■
