A STUNNING Claremont home once owned by Australia’s first female Foreign Minister Julie Bishop is up for sale – and it’s just as stylish as its esteemed former owner.
The four-bedroom home at 1 Walter Street in Claremont is being sold by Ray White Cottesloe/Mosman Park.
The beautiful tuck-pointed home has sat on its elevated, tree-lined block since the 1900s.
The home is for sale via expressions of interest, closing on December 11, with a ballpark figure of the low $4 millions.
Boasting sprawling gardens, extra-high ceilings, an expansive verandah and large traditional interiors, the home represents the very best of Federation architecture.
“Stylishly restored and enhanced by the existing owners in 2015 this home boasts relaxed sophistication that perfectly delivers luxurious and versatile modern family living,” Ray White Cottesloe/Mosman Park director Jody Fewster said.
“The grassed areas lead to timber decking that takes you to the homes grand entry.
“If you take a sharp right instead, stroll through to the deluxe pool-house and alfresco area that is magnificently equipped for idyllic outdoor-entertaining all year.”
Quality is evident throughout the home with a combination of luxurious fixtures and surfaces in all spaces.
The property is within walking distance to Claremont shopping and entertainment precinct, local parks, top state and private schools.
