36 James Street, Bassendean
A classic Bassendean family home with modern features that incorporates big rooms, big windows and big open outdoor spaces.
This place is so spacious and filled with light. Still a classic well-built family home from the 70s but recently renovated to embrace modern needs and lifestyle. The front yard has a classic picket fence but isn’t full of ‘busy’ old fashioned roses and camelias, instead it has sharp lawn punctuated with geometrically placed modern looking Dizygotheca that give the place a ‘Mad Men’ feel. The huge backyard has a similar landscaped ‘clean’ feel with massive covered areas for any-time-of-year outdoor entertainment. The lawns are perfect enough to play a round of golf on.
Inside the same feel predominates. Rather than convert to ultra-modern contemporary style the owners have created a very stylish interior that makes fantastic use of the structure and period. Big rooms with amazing faux deco ceilings and fireplace makes the main entrance living room a really cool introduction to this home. Your eye is led through to a wonderful, big kitchen with a compact dining area, then you move into an absolutely huge room that is as wide as the house itself that has the potential to be indoor games room/home cinema/second living room.
A very interesting and super spacious addition has created a kind of ‘Granny Flat’, ‘teenager’s retreat’ or bedroom with its own shower; a perfect place for guests or a music room for a drummer or saxophone player (just kidding), but seriously a very cool addition that essentially makes this house a 4 bedroom 2 bathroom home. The main house has 3 big bedrooms two of which have built in robes. The modern bathroom incorporates independent bath, shower and the toilet is separate to the bathroom. The whole house is serviced by fully ducted aircon as well.
Last but not least you have undercover parking for two cars and a good sized shed in the back yard.
Of course it is in beautiful Bassendean so the beautiful upper Swan River is a pleasant walk from your front door and not much further is Bassendean Central with fabulous eateries, schools, nature walks, great public transport options, the Guildford shopping district is nearby too with more cafés and antique shopping to die for! All this is on the doorstep of the unbelievably beautiful Swan Valley, with wineries, fresh produce, lush pastureland and the glorious river linking it all.
