Home open cancelled - UNDER OFFER - New York Style Townhouse with Elevated Views

Home open cancelled - This property is now under offer - sorry for any inconvenience 8/3/24

Set within a small group of 11 unique townhouses, this stylish two bedroom, double storey home offers you the chance to secure your very own piece of mid-century architectural history. Designed by renowned architects Krantz and Sheldon, each property in ‘Melview’ operates on solar passive principles through clever angular design that captures as much natural light and space as possible.

Amongst a backdrop of gum trees and communal gardens filled with native bush and shrubbery, number 9 sits in a quiet position towards the rear of this block, away from the main road.

The New York warehouse inspired style features throughout the open plan kitchen, living and dining. Whitewashed floorboards, exposed brick feature wall and copper piping all complement the sleek black and white colour palette.

The straight line kitchen with laundry nook seamlessly blends into the lounge area, optimising the flow of the entire ground floor. Featuring a subway tile splash back, stone bench tops and floating timber shelves, the high quality appliances include Chef electric oven with gas stovetop, dishwasher and washing machine.

Double doors lead from the lounge to an undercover, paved alfresco where you can enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine amongst your very own private garden setting.

Framed by floor to ceiling glass windows on both levels means this home is flooded in natural light. Head upstairs via the floating staircase to the bedrooms and main bathroom. The two bedrooms are carpeted with ceiling fans, as well as an air conditioning unit and built-in wardrobe in the main bedroom with a private North/East facing balcony. Enjoy stunning sunset hues each day with a view of treetops and glimpses of Perth City’s skyline and the Swan river in the distance.

Outside there is a communal laundry facility and shared outdoor washing lines. An allocated car bay is included with ample space for guest parking or extra vehicles.

This location is walking distance to Hawaiian’s Melville Plaza shopping centre with plenty of stores, cafes, restaurants, services, amenities and the LeisureFit Melville Recreational Centre minutes away.
