16 Kensington Street, East Perth
Stunning Inner-City Opportunity!
Large families and astute investors will be left salivating at the prospect of this expansive tri-level property that boasts a host of both residential and commercial possibilities in a prime East Perth location very close to Optus Stadium, the picturesque Swan River, beautiful Claisebrook Cove, sprawling parklands, cafs, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, weekend markets and the bright lights of Perth's vibrant CBD lifestyle.
The residence is currently set up as a business on the ground floor but can easily be converted back into living quarters, where a gated entrance and a reception room precede four potential bedrooms, a sitting area, powder room, a kitchenette with plenty of storage space and outdoor access to a delightful rear courtyard for low-maintenance entertaining.
There is also the possibility of utilising all three levels as an extensive home, with the upper two floors combining to create a contemporary 4 bedroom 3 bathroom townhouse (above the ground floor living quarters or business) - extending the overall floor plan to 8 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms in total.
The home itself features on the middle floor a gourmet kitchen and dining area with sparkling granite bench tops, as well as an intimate balcony overlooking the courtyard down below, a spacious family room leading onto a huge private alfresco balcony for further entertaining with the added extras of caf blinds and a remote-controlled louvered Pergola patio for all-weather use. A further separate lounge at the front with splendid city and stadium views from its own balcony.
Upstairs, the main sleeping wing consists of four carpeted bedrooms and three bathrooms, two bedrooms share a semi-ensuite, the third bedroom with full bathroom and a slice of the wonderful vista and a master suite, complete with a vaulted ceiling, a huge fitted walk-in wardrobe, a second walk-in robe, a gorgeous French door leading out to a personal balcony with views to the city, new stadium and Crown Towers and a well-equipped ensuite with a bubbling corner spa, a shower, twin vanities, a separate toilet and more.
Back downstairs, you will find a functional tiled laundry with a linen press, a storage nook and a handy internal shopper's entrance via a secure remote-controlled triple garage that sits adjacent to a shade sail and courtyard access. A private laneway affords you a "no-fuss" access from the rear of the property, whilst there is plenty of street parking for your guests and clients.
So whether you decide to rent out the commercial space whilst living above, run your own business from home, reside on all three levels or allocate tenants to the entire lot to further increase your investment returns, there is no doubt that this property is one for the "smart" buyer. There is a further option to purchase the day-spa business from the current owner. Secure your future - now!
