Situated along the Swan River in Perth’s north-east, Bassendean has recorded more than 10 per cent growth over the past 12 months, driving the median house price up to A$580,500. Filled with heritage homes, riverside reserves and charming cafes, properties in Bassendean stay on the market for an average of just 13 days.

Built in 1898 for British educationist Sir Cyril Jackson, this outstanding heritage home is filled with stories. From hosting luminaries of the day to meetings with the then-premier John Forrest, this early Federation Arts and Crafts-style home is steeped in prestige.

Following extensive refurbishment over the last few years, ‘Daylesforrd House’ has emerged as a glittering heritage gem that would be perfect for a large family that delights in hosting.

This four-bedroom home is filled with character and grandeur, featuring fittings from England and roof tiles sourced from Marseilles in France. Wainscoting, original fireplaces, ceiling roses and timber flooring add to this air of heritage grandeur throughout.

Upon entrance, the home greets you with an expansive, light-filled entry foyer and adjacent sitting room crowned with a stunning chandelier. Continue through the home and you’ll find the classic kitchen which offers an abundance of storage and direct access to the river-facing outdoor entertainment area. Providing a front seat to the Swan River, this charming outdoor haven is surrounded by manicured gardens and level lawned areas.

A formal dining room featuring a charming fireplace provides an additional space for hosting family and friends while still taking in those idyllic river views.

The home’s four bedrooms offer palatial proportions and serene leafy vistas while the renovated bathrooms enjoy an abundance of natural light and rain showers, with one of the bathrooms boasting a freestanding tub.

Positioned on a deep riverfront block along a quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac, this Bassendean property presents a private and scenic haven for the whole family to enjoy. Located within easy reach of prestigious all-boys school Guildford Grammar, as well as Bassendean Primary, local eateries, green spaces and the train station, this address allows for a convenient, family-focused lifestyle.

Offers for this outstanding heritage home are required by August 9 at 4pm, unless sold prior.
