The Crewe view

22. 42HOME1 1

CREWE STREET is a row of mansions, a line up of opulence tucked down by Bicton’s riverside.

Sitting on just over 1000sqm — that’s practically Versailles by modern standards — number 2 stands out as one of the street’s few blocks that hasn’t been subdivided, eschewing cramped quarters for a huge expanse behind the grand main house.

With four bedrooms and four bathrooms, the 650sqm home was renovated about seven years ago and everything was customised: the owners taking a personal hand in the design lends it a unique feel with its stone and timber themes throughout.

There’s a lot of little details worked in at the owners’ request, from the well-equipped alfresco kitchen in the secondary dining area overlooking the river to the lower level wine cellar, where a mason spent months painstakingly chipping stone bricks into custom blocks that form a mosaic-style wall.

Every fitting and feature looks like no expense was spared, from the open rain-head shower to the five-car garage to the walk-in robe that outsizes most living rooms, to the automated security, sound and light systems.

Strolling out into the backyard expecting to see an ordinary little granny flat, you find instead what could pass for a one-bedroom house, with separate bedroom, bathroom and living area. It could be set up for guests, the olds, a grown up kid’s party shack, or—as it is now—a gym.

The backyard itself has plenty of room for kids or pets to run about, along with a basketball ring and a second outdoor dining area, in case you feel like a change from the one overlooking the river, and in-ground pool out front.

Location wise you’re in strolling distance of the undoubtedly beautiful Bicton Baths and Blackwall Reach. Freo’s just a hop down one end of the highway and Garden City the other, and there’s a fair share of very good public and private primary and secondary schools within 5km.

It’s open to offers.
