CITY VISTAS FROM REVAMPED HOME
CITY glimpses from the front porch turn into full-blown skyline views from the top level, guaranteeing the new owners breathtaking vistas from every corner of this South Perth residence.
The contemporary double-storey home is perched on a hill in a sought-after street close to Wesley College and the Angelo Street cafe precinct.
Owners Dominic and Sonia, who run their own residential building business, have lived in the home for the past seven years.
“I did all the renovations five years ago and have nothing to hide – everything is perfect,” he said. “We redid all the plumbing, electrical wiring and insulation and there are new tiles, flooring and cupboards.”
The home’s thoughtful transformation still features gorgeous character features throughout, such as leadlight windows, raked ceilings with exposed beams and french doors.
But it also has a modern, practical floorplan with the main living and entertaining spaces on the ground floor.
Here, there is a spacious formal lounge and dining space with lofty ceilings that bathes in warm afternoon sun and overlooks the tree-lined street.
From the dining room, step out to the paved, undercover alfresco dining area.
Around the corner is the open-plan family, meals and kitchen, which has stainlesssteel appliances and plenty of storage.
Also tucked away on this level of the house is the main bathroom, the laundry and a bedroom that can be converted into a home office.
Upstairs, the master bedroom and second minor bedroom have views to the Swan River and have built-in robes.
Even the bathroom on this floor has a view to the city.
Out the back, a gorgeous citrus scent fills the air thanks to the mature lemon trees, which complement the wellmaintained gardens.
The semi-retired couple are building a new house in Salter Point, but say they will sorely miss this home’s location.
“The neighbours are all friendly,” Dominic said. “The area is fantastic – down the road is the river where you can go for a walk, there’s a couple of restaurants on the corner and there’s a coffee shop opposite.”
