WITH its cute, manicured streets Northbank is reminiscent of a Hollywood movie, and this stunning home is so gorgeous it’s bound to be typecast.
Built in 2000, it’s already had an extensive renovation, keeping its movie-set cred on overdrive.
A limestone-pier portico and a huge timber gate guard the front, and a flawlessly neat courtyard is a buffer between the outside world and the opulent interior.
Stepping into the huge open-plan living/dining/kitchen is a jaw-dropping moment; a wall of glass taking in foreshore parkland and the river.
What’s in between is pretty speccy too, a sweep of red/gold blackbutt floors and soaring ceilings.
A central courtyard was enclosed in the renos, creating a light-filled dining area, with a frosted-glass, skillion roof.
The kitchen would have a celebrity chef salivating with its expanse of granite and marble benches and sweep of American oak cupboards, including a bank of floor-to-ceiling pantries.
There’s more of the beautiful rich timber in the living area, with a wall of cabinetry surrounding a massive TV and sound system.
Limestone pillars support a lovely arch over the covered alfresco area, and the huge expanse of travertine tiling continues on to meet a glass balustrade, with a gate to the beach beyond.
The built-in outdoor kitchen has travertine benchtops and a splash back, making outdoor entertaining an elegant affair. And with peaceful river views enhanced by parkland the view day, or night, is picture perfect.
The three bedrooms are on the second level, including the monster main, where a balcony takes in the river and traffic bridges.
There’s his and hers walk-in robes, and the huge ensuite has underfloor heating.
This stunning home is walking distance from North Fremantle’s cafe scene, and you’re spoilt for dining choices a short car drive in either direction.
