CLEV­ERLY REN­O­VATED OLD CHARM WITH NEW TOUCHES

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

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.
