Residential - Sold


m2 Land


A foundation property of the area, occupying one of our finest sites and now offered for sale for the first time in 50 years.

850m2 of prime, elevated, ocean view land just two houses from the front row. So close that you can hear the waves landing upon the white sands of the most pristine beach nearby. The views from such a vantage point are extraordinary.

Just four houses in the other direction is your gateway to the Bent Street parkland precinct. A superb series of interconnected parks meandering like tributaries towards the sea through some of the finest coastal land in Perth. Dotted with playgrounds, cricket nets, basketball, soccer and football practice equipment. Alive with the sound of children playing and neighbours chatting in one of the great communal fields (and hidden gems) of City Beach. A place where childhood memories are made and lifelong friendships are forged.

Property owners here tend to stay for generations. Cocooned by natural beauty, there is nowhere they would rather be. Several large, recent additions to the architectural streetscape of Talgarth Way are testament to the stature in which this land is held. Fine, large new homes built to capitalise on the rare 'park and sea' location. Land value opportunities, therefore, are becoming scarce and highly sought after. This is your opportunity.

A much-loved family home, designed by the renowned Bob Davey, the existing residence features soaring raked ceilings, majestic timber windows, solid Jarrah beams, an Italian marble mantlepiece and sweeping staircase with bespoke wrought iron balustrading traversing a double height entry foyer.

There is a cavernous subterranean level with garaging for up to four cars as well as a large cellar and workshop. The site costs alone for the establishment of such infrastructure would be significant.

Similarly a huge, tiled, concrete swimming pool was thoughtfully elevated to sit at ground floor level enabling excellent integration with the kitchen, family living rooms and paved colonnade style verandah which overlook it.

With a modern security alarm, formal lounge and dining rooms, plus kitchen, family meals and living areas which flow through timber bi-folds to a generous study, the ground floor offers substantial scope for renewal in the hands of creative new owners. A guest bedroom also shares this level with facilities en suite, the adjacent laundry being huge.

Second storey accommodation consists of four more bedrooms and three bathrooms - the main bedroom with en suite and walk-through robe. Each bedroom enjoys access to a shared full width balcony with panoramic ocean views to Rottnest Island.

There are so many options here. To landbank in a rising market or to renovate the large, solid bones of a top quality build of its era. For some, though, the temptation to put their own stamp on the ever-evolving architectural tapestry of Talgarth Way will be too compelling, and worthy of a build for the next generation and beyond.
