10 Elsfield Way, Bassendean
HOME OPEN CANCELLED
Elevated so that the enormous ‘Front’ veranda has a substantial Northwest view over Bassendean. This expansive property sits high on a big block in a quiet tree lined Cul-de-sac. From the first sight it has a ‘grande’ feel about it…beautiful landscaped elevated front entrance, that aforementioned massive covered veranda and the lead lighted 40s font entrance add to the restored classic feel of this exciting home.
Step into the very unique perspective pattern parquetry polished jarrah vestibule (entrance)…this is when you feel you have entered the back and not the front because you are looking at the beautiful modern kitchen and dining room, normally the kitchen is further into the home at least with older places. The owners explained that originally the house was set back on the block which faced the street on the other side so that the original back of the house is now the front and it is an interesting twist that really works.
The whole home is a classic solidly built brick house circa 1940's and still has those excellent features the period is renowned for…polished jarrah floors, deco ceiling rosettes, leadlight feature windows and really solid architraves and decorative arches. The first bedroom has French doors that lead out onto the pool area, built in robes and big windows facing the cool front (literally because of the shade it affords). Across the parquetry entrance hall is another bedroom or office space/private contemplative space which is also has big windows facing the veranda.
The kitchen/open plan dining area is a tour-de-force featuring double period French doors that lead directly to the pool again…while we are here, let's talk about the spectacular swimming pool surrounded by real Toodyay stone crazy paving, what an awesome place for the family to take a splash on a hot summer's day, or sit under the gazebo with a glass of chardonnay.
Back inside to the lounge/living room with a big fireplace, massive architraved arches lead you from room to room given it a very open feel, picture rails, more double French doors that lead to yet another cool veranda, this time the back (that was once the front)…it’s now a stunning outdoor dining area surrounded by landscaped lawn and garden area with the obligatory fruit trees. There’s a huge storage shed/man cave.
Stepping back inside you have a broad hallway off which is the big master bedroom with mirrored built in robes, a Tuscan style bathroom which services both the master bedroom and the fourth bedroom also with built in robes…then we have completed the circle and we are back to the modern galley style kitchen. This house is BIG, you and your family can really spread your wings here. There is also an extra bathroom and toilet too.
To top it off you will live in a lovely Bassendean street with beautiful parks, the Swan River nearby, a short drive to the glorious Swan Valley, Bassendean Central, great schools, Guildford’s antiques and cafes…gotta love Bassendean!
