THE HIGH LIFE
82b Hare Street
MIDDLETON BEACH, WA 6330
Once in a while, a truly outstanding property appears on the market, bringing with it an opportunity for the most discerning of home buyers to realise their dream.
From high on Mt Clarence in prestigious Hare Street, this fine, contemporary home – designed to take in panoramic views over land and ocean – is finished to a very high specification in every aspect.
Luxury, comfort and innovation are evident throughout, providing the owners with an enviable lifestyle to minimise work and promote relaxation and recreation.
This is a sunny, beautifully appointed home over two storeys, built of rendered brick and Colorbond, packed with well-considered features for easy living and immaculately presented.
At the front of the 520sqm block, an exposed-aggregate driveway leads to a double garage and a path to the impressive front entrance – a fitting introduction to the home.
Inside, the wide entrance hall has high-gloss floor tiling, wall up-lights and a tall ceiling with a classy crystal chandelier, all combining to create a warm welcome as well as a lasting impression.
Ahead, glazed double doors open onto the main living room, where the expansive view is revealed through windows along the entire rear wall.
From the Southern Ocean and Breaksea and Michaelmas Islands, the outlook pans around to Middleton Beach, Lake Seppings, the golf course, the eastern suburbs of the city and north-east as far as the Stirling and Porongurup Ranges.
Polished black butt flooring flows throughout this airy, open space comprising the family room, dining area and adjoining kitchen, all air conditioned and with UV-reduction glass and motorised remote-controlled blinds.
Outdoor living areas make the most of the vista. A door on the northern end of the living room leads out to a sheltered deck with a built-in gas barbecue, a louvred ceiling to enhance the flow of air and light, and a servery from the kitchen. A balcony at the opposite end of the family room features an angled timber ceiling, and is shared by the master bedroom.
The generous kitchen is fitted with stylish taupe cabinetry with ivory stone bench tops, a pantry, and high-quality appliances including an induction cooktop, a pyrolytic wall oven and a dishwasher – everything to make feeding the family or entertaining friends enjoyable and easy.
Offering another option for privacy or relaxation is a separate lounge reached off the entrance hall. This versatile room could be used for entertaining, as a theatre room or even as a nursery.
Also on this floor is a spacious office with a built-in cupboard, a powder room for guests, and the master bedroom. This is a sumptuous, welcoming retreat with two walk-in robes – one with shelving; one with hanging space – and a beautiful en suite bathroom complete with spa bath with automatic fill, an oversized shower and toilet. Tiled from floor to ceiling, this room also has lights above the bath to add a frivolous touch to bathing, luxurious under-floor heating, and heated towel rails.
The three family bedrooms are downstairs, reached from the entrance hall via a wide black butt staircase with stainless steel balustrading. All are carpeted, one has a sizeable walk-in robe and the other two have built-ins, two are queen-sized and one is a good-sized single or twin room.
Also on this level are a big games room with plenty of space for recreation, a naturally cool walk-in wine cellar, and the laundry, with attractive cabinetry, stone bench tops and access to an undercover drying area at the rear. There’s also a family bathroom with under-floor heating and floor-to-ceiling tiling.
The enclosed back garden is an excellent year-round playground, fitted with artificial turf to keep maintenance to a minimum.
Several storage rooms and cupboards, linen and broom cupboards provide an abundance of space for keeping the place tidy.
The double garage extends back to provide parking space for three vehicles. It has direct access from the house and includes a generous workshop.
A paved and sheltered front courtyard, with herb and vegetable gardens around the perimeter, affords a further outdoor seating option.
Other innovative features include a laundry chute between floors, a ducted inverter air conditioning system, a water softener to all internal taps, energy-efficient LED lighting throughout, numerous data points, smart wiring of TV, data and alarm systems to one central point, wiring for Foxtel in the living and games rooms, and a ducted vacuum system with hoses on each floor and four outlets (including the garage).
With a home of this calibre, security is high on the priority list, and this is fitted with movement sensors at five external points, interior and perimeter alarms and glass-breakage sensors for the owners’ peace of mind.
For a dip in the ocean, Middleton Beach is only a short drive or bike ride away, and schools, medical facilities and the city are all within easy reach.
The current owners will negotiate on the sale of any furniture, and will also consider renting the house back after settlement.
For those seeking a home of pure quality with a world-class outlook, this will delight in every way.
