Revitalized heritage residence perched on the Swan River


Located along the Swan River in northeast Perth, Bassendean has seen double-digit growth in the past 12 months, pushing the median property price up to AU$580,500. Filled with heritage homes, waterfront reserves and charming cafes, properties in Bassendean only stay on the market for an average of 13 days.

Built in 1898 for British educator Sir Cyril Jackson, this exceptional heritage home is filled with stories. From hosting luminaries of the day to meeting then-Prime Minister John Forrest, this former Federation Arts and Crafts-style house is steeped in prestige.

Following extensive renovations over the past few years, ‘Daylesforrd House’ has become a glistening heritage gem that would be perfect for a large family who love to entertain.

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

As soon as you enter, the house welcomes you with a spacious and bright entrance hall and an adjacent living room crowned with a magnificent chandelier. Continue through the house and you will find the classic kitchen which offers an abundance of storage and direct access to the outdoor entertaining area facing the river. Offering a front seat to the Swan River, this charming outdoor haven is surrounded by manicured gardens and flat lawns.

A formal dining room with a charming fireplace provides additional space to host family and friends while taking in those idyllic river views.

The home’s four bedrooms boast lavish proportions and serene green views while the remodeled bathrooms boast an abundance of natural light and rain showers, with one of the bathrooms featuring a soaking tub self-supporting.

Situated on a deep block beside a river along a quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac, this Bassendean property presents a private and scenic haven for the whole family. Located close to the prestigious Guildford Grammar Boys’ School, as well as Bassendean Primary, local restaurants, green spaces and the train station, this address allows for a convenient, family-oriented lifestyle.

Bids for this exceptional heritage home are required by August 9 at 4 p.m., unless sold earlier.
