Western suburbs-style grandeur, with easy access to the CBD
Decadent riverside mansion. By NATALIE HORDOV
THE western suburbs does not have a monopoly on incredible riverside mansions; this stunning two-storey home is in Maylands.
On a 743sq m block in a quiet, soughtafter location, it has gorgeous river views and is minutes from the foreshore, yacht club and golf course.
Excellent schools, shops and public transport are nearby and it is just 5km to the CBD and 2km from the Beaufort Street cafe strip.
The ground floor of the spacious home wraps around a huge alfresco area with bar, outdoor kitchen, skylights, timber-panelled ceiling and cafe blinds.
It overlooks the private front courtyard and pool.
Glass bi-fold doors provide a seamless flow through to the central living zone with an open-plan sitting and dining area with polished jarrah parquetry flooring and huge windows. There is no need for extra artwork in this room; the views are glorious.
The kitchen has a large island bench, granite benchtops, European appliances and an eye-catching central chandelier.
There is also a sunken lounge room, family room, two bedrooms, one bathroom and a powder room on this floor.
The master suite is upstairs and has a walk-in robe and ensuite.
The first floor also includes a living area with access to a balcony with outstanding views, study area, and two bedrooms with built-in or walk-in robes and ensuites.
The home is for sale by open negotiation. ■
