CLEVERLY RENOVATED OLD CHARM WITH NEW TOUCHES
RENOVATED to a high standard, this family home blends a true sense of South Perth character with stunning modern finishes.
“When we first bought it, it was very much a dark, closed-in, old house,” owner Tracey said.
“Now it is light and bright with a bit of a timeless touch.”
White plantation shutters and flooring add to the home’s character, while a remodelled floor plan offering three spacious living zones provides enough space for the whole clan.
“It’s been really ideal for the family,” Tracey said.
“The kids’ bedrooms are tucked away upstairs, along with the TV and couch in their own retreat area.
“The kids love the pool and the front yard is enclosed with the fence, so there is a big area where they can play.
“And there are vegie patches down the side of the house.”
A shady veranda overlooking manicured lawns and hedges adorns the facade, while the ornate front door opens to reveal the charming interior.
A formal lounge and an office, both with elegant gas fireplaces, are at the front of the residence.
“My favourite part of the home is the lounge room with feature bay windows, a dual aspect and gas fire for winter – it’s just a lovely room to sit in and it has all the original features in the ceilings,” Tracey said.
Further in is the kitchen with Miele appliances and stone benchtops. The kitchen overlooks the main living space and the outdoor area through floor-to-ceiling windows.
“I’m a real baker and cook so having a scullery where you can cook and create with a second dishwasher is very handy,” Tracey said.
The kitchen also features an abundance of storage space.
The master bedroom with a stylish ensuite and walk-in robe completes the lower level.
Additional features include builtin robes, airconditioning and secure undercover parking for two cars.
