Gone! After the first home open - multiple offers presented.
Once every so often a home comes along that is outstanding.
So out of the ordinary,
that you know you just need to make it yours.
72 Mackie Street is such a home. Designed for Western Australian living.
Ensconced in the Raphael Park Precinct, on arguably the best block of one of Victoria Park’s best streets, this home was born from a 1927 tuck-pointed red brick and iron worker’s cottage.
The original facade has been immaculately maintained, with an extensive modern extension completed 8 years ago, increasing the accommodation to 4/5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, over three levels of living.
The exposed structural spine of this home is a galvanized I-beam, running from the mezzanine level inside, to the lime-washed, lined undercover alfresco.
On 675m2 of R30 green titled land, the home sits well forward on the block, allowing plenty of room for the expansive landscaped backyard. Polished exposed aggregate, a large saltwater pool, studio (complete with bathroom), fruit trees (fig, lemon and macadamia), cooling green Sir Walter lawns and side access are just some of the features on offer.
Across the back of the home, framed in commercial profile, clear-anodized aluminium, the ceiling to floor (over 6m high!) Viridian glazing makes an impressive statement, creating a permanent visual link between the inside of this home and out. This wall of glazing can be entirely opened to the alfresco living by pushing back two banks of massive stacker doors.
The kitchen boasts an abundance of storage, double Miele ovens (steam and pyrolytic), Miele flush mounted 900mm Induction cook-top, Miele dishwasher, double under-slung stainless sinks and a scullery/laundry. Feeding the troops, making pizza dough, mixing ‘dark and stormies’ for your friends using mint from your garden. It’s all possible in this relaxed easy kitchen space.
There is so much to love about this spacious light filled home.
From the double height internal feature wall of original 1920’s red bricks, cabinetry finished in clear-coated marine ply, to the absolute opulence of the Carrara marble breakfast bar, this home is as eclectic in its mix of materials as it is carefully considered in its composition.
With kids and pets all factored into the hard-wearing design, this really is an exercise in practicality. Solid jarrah floors run from the front door to the back. The downstairs’ wet areas, including the scullery, laundry and main bathroom, all boast natural Travertine marble floors.
The three bedrooms on the ground floor are all generously proportioned, with built in storage and plantation shutters. A second living room (could easily double as a fifth bedroom if required) provides the perfect escape to watch a movie or indulge in some serious gaming.
Upstairs is an escape from the madding crowd.
The master suite, accessed through double doors, is dramatically scaled and sits at the highest point in the home. His and hers walk in robes are a perfect solution to territorial storage battles! The demarcation of space continues in the ensuite with lots of drawers, cupboard storage and his and hers double under-slung porcelain vanities, set in a stone bench-top.
Three steps from the master suite, a mezzanine living space complete with built in book shelves, provides vantage over the whole property. Look down to the kitchen and lounge, through the back windows to the alfresco, the pool and studio beyond.
The studio/pool house has been built to an exacting standard. Galvanized footings in concrete, recycled jarrah floors, insulated walls and ceilings, timber weatherboard cladding, all serve to create an incredibly versatile space. Complete with a bathroom (also with a door to the pool area), this could be a teenager’s recreational retreat, the ultimate man-cave or a home office – you choose! With its own sub-board, TV aerial, loads of power points and polished jarrah floors this is a carefully considered space, and a real bonus.
There is literally too much to mention! 6.6kw solar system, Ducted Daiken air conditioning, bore reticulation (water good enough to fill the pool with), NBN FTTP smart wired around the home, alarmed, brand new garden shed, external lockable bike storage, multi-coloured LED pool lighting and so much more!!
In a premium walkable location, with Raphael Park, schools (including the celebrated Victoria Park Primary), Perth’s most vibrant cafe, restaurant and small bar strip, and the Swan River all on your doorstep. Not only that, but 72 Mackie Street is a short bike ride to the City and Optus Stadium along the Swan River’s foreshore. Around the corner regular buses run to the City and Curtin University.
Homes like this are rarely offered. Inspection is a must.
