You could easily get lost in the copious amount of space in this two-storey home on Lee Place, Bicton.
Somewhat like Alice in Wonderland, in taking a wrong turn I was unexpectedly on a balcony, being buffeted by wild winds.
Ducking back inside, another door took me into a formal lounge/living room, where I could better appreciate the views without being blown away.
Down the corridor it was the view, not the wind, that took my breath away as I stood at the kitchen sink looking across and up the Swan River.
“Eat me” Alice was tempted, and this huge kitchen is certainly a place to whip up tempting meals, with plenty of bench space and a large pantry.
“Drink me” another door seemed to say, and I found myself in a well-proportioned games room/lounge complete with a bar where I could see myself concocting a cocktail to sip while enjoying the view.
Come summer and I’d be stepping out the double glass doors for a dip in the sparkling pool.
Feeling as if I was disappearing into a rabbit hole, (the globe had blown and it was somewhat dark) I gingerly tackled a spiral staircase to discover a gargantuan garage.
There’s space for a couple of cars, a boat and trailer, and there’d still be room left over.
A sweeping jarrah staircase off the soaring entry leads up to the five bedrooms of this palatial home.
The spacious main bedroom has an equally spacious walk-in robe, an ensuite and a balcony from which to enjoy the view.
There’s plenty of outdoor space at this 828sqm property but, should you want more, Blackwall Reach Parade and Bicton Baths and the old Quarantine Station parklands are just around the corner.
And for good measure the 634sqm vacant block next door is also for sale—if you’ve got the lolly, it opens up all sorts of possibilities to create your very own Wonderland.
