Recently restored, 51 Mary Street has undergone a tasteful renovation, breathing new life into this standout home. Having enlisted advice from heritage architect Philip Griffiths of Griffiths Architects, structural engineer Tore Madafferi and interior design studio Agnew Interiors, the owners commenced their journey in 2022 to update the residence in key areas, ensuring each choice was complementary to the original fabric of the home whilst attending to the needs of the modern day.

Removing the 1980’s plaster render, the front exterior has been reinstated to feature stunning tuckpointing and a restoration of the original mouldings. Victorian style fencing and a contemporary gate wraps the residence, whilst new landscaping provides elegant greenery to the front garden alongside new paving and a revitalised street-facing verandah.

Beyond the front door lies a view that is in every way, utterly breathtaking. The city skyline reveals itself from the moment you walk in, and which only continues to expand as you make your way down the hallway. An ever evolving view, the day time canvas affirms a sense of proximity to the dynamics and hustle of the city, whilst as the sun sets and night falls, the magic and the glow of the city lights captivate, presenting what is the quintessential Perth City view and the romanticism that comes along with it.

Under the watchful eye of Agnew Interiors, the interior has been given a significant upgrade throughout. Original character details have been restored and enhanced, whilst a brand new lighting design sets the stage. Artful attention has been given to the colour scheme and the fixtures and fittings throughout, whilst both bathrooms have been completely renovated.

With its high vaulted ceiling, timber beams and exposed bricks, the open plan living and dining area creates wonderful scale and a warm and welcoming place to unwind. Timber framed doors open out to the large timber deck, allowing you to take full advantage of this envious view. Whether you entertain inside or out, your vantage point continues to impress. A pot belly fireplace and a Daikin multi-split inverter reverse cycle air conditioning system ensures comfort year round.

With quality appliances and a monochromatic colour scheme, the kitchen features a new Fisher & Paykel 900 wide induction cooktop and oven, a Smeg Dishwasher, Hafele corner storage, under bench and pantry storage.

When it comes to resting and luxuriating, the main bedrooms and bathrooms are designed to exceed expectations, whilst delicately restoring original details. A new ensuite bathroom and walk-in robe were incorporated into the main bedroom, creating a stunning and well appointed suite. Complete renovations, the new bathrooms entailed new construction of walls, floors and internal plumbing fixtures. Italian honed Carrara marble floors and full height tiles line the spaces, whilst underfloor heating and heated towel rails add further luxury. Laufen wall hung toilets and in-wall cisterns are complemented by Grohe and Milli tapware, whilst a Laufen freestanding bath takes pride of place in the ensuite. A well detailed walk-in-robe has been designed into the main bedroom and the second bedroom features new built-in robes.

A third bedroom or home office enjoys a direct view to the city and is a wonderful space to house a guest bedroom or work from home.

With its brick archways and moody atmosphere, the downstairs undercroft is a welcome surprise. A versatile space which could be used for creative outlets and for entertaining, this is an area that provides incredible versatility and potential to further evolve the design. A gymnasium and large storeroom sit to the back of the space, whilst a third bathroom and separate laundry provide convenience.

With direct access to the rear lane, you’ll enjoy off-street parking for one vehicle in the large over-sized garage. A large shed sits adjacent and makes for a great storage area for gardening items and machinery.

A location that positions you in the heart of Highgate and on the Mount Lawley and Northbridge fringes, you really are walking distance to some of Perth’s best selections of cafes, restaurants and amenities. Hyde Park is but a mere stroll down Mary Street and the pulse of the city is on your fingertips. This is what you call premium inner city living.

A jewel in the crown, 51 Mary Street is without a doubt the best buying opportunity along Mary Street in a very long time. We anticipate strong interest and encourage buyers to act promptly.
