Live in a character home so beautiful it looks like it could be straight from a children's storybook in this exquisite, meticulously extended home, set on one of Claremont's prettiest and most sought after streets.

If you love the warmth and grace of timeless character style but dream of a house with modern open-plan living and family functionality, this could be the one. Built in 1894, one of the charming features of this heritage Federation bungalow is that its graceful limestone and brick cottage elevation gives little hint of the expansive, modern home beyond.

With its locally sourced original limestone walls, wraparound veranda, leadlight windows and immaculate cottage gardens, this elegant home has long drawn admiring glances. Leafy Riley Road is just one street back from the river; moments to parks, Perth's best schools, Claremont Quarter, renowned restaurants and cafes and all the facilities you could want.

Meticulously extended and renovated to the highest standards throughout, every aspect of this house is immaculate, beginning with the manicured front gardens filled with mature trees and iceberg roses. Take your morning coffee out on the wraparound front veranda, gently perfumed by the jasmine and stephanotis that wind up the veranda posts.

A magnificent restored leadlight entry opens onto a grand hall with ebony jarrah floors. At the front is a huge lounge room with stunning marble fireplace. Next door is a beautiful home office with leadlight windows and another marble fireplace, a versatile room that could also be used as a TV Room, bedroom or nursery if needed. Across the hall is the main suite, with separation and privacy from the minor bedrooms. In the original part of the home, this is a dream bedroom with all the romance of yesteryear but the modern comforts of today, with a beautiful bay window overlooking the gardens, fireplace, ceiling roses and picture lines. Meanwhile there is a bespoke dressing room and stunning Carrera marble ensuite with twin vanity and spa bath.

The hallway flows into the heart of the home; a breathtaking, north-facing open-plan living overlooking the back garden with a huge pool, lush Mediterranean gardens and alfresco area with barbecue. You will dream of hosting parties, long table dinners and Christmas lunches here.

The central dining is bookended by living spaces, offering great versatility for a family with younger or older kids. Relax by the fireplace and enjoy the visual connections to the beautiful gardens. The huge kitchen offers space for everyone. Chat to guests over a wine or make dinner while the kids do their homework at the huge island bench. There is a walk-in pantry, European appliances including a NEFF oven and gas cooktop and integrated Miele dishwasher, and convenient access by the carport to the kitchen; ideal for
giving caterers side access when entertaining.

Upstairs are three big, light-filled bedrooms with built-in robes and beautiful linen curtains. One bedroom has its own ensuite; the others are serviced by a contemporary family bathroom and separate powder room. Each bedroom is north-facing and all connect to a huge balcony overlooking the treed neighbourhood. Kids will love the balcony connectivity, a place to hang with friends. The landing encompasses bespoke cabinetry and desks to offer an expansive study area.
