GO­ING UP A WHOLE NEW STOREY

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

IN a won­der­ful union of old and new, this lovely Kens­ing­ton cot­tage fuses character charm with the func­tion­al­ity of con­tem­po­rary spa­ces.

Stand­ing on 519sq m of green ti­tle land, the house was built in the 1920s but has since been ren­o­vated and ex­tended.

Orig­i­nally from Queens­land, own­ers Sue and her hus­band Uday have lived in the home with their chil­dren Phoebe (13) and Brij (11), as well as labrador Ladoo and guinea pig Justin Jelly­bean, for the past two years.

“We bought it think­ing we were there for life, but my hus­band’s work is tak­ing us back to Bris­bane,” Sue said.

“My hus­band is an en­gi­neer and he al­ways said ‘We could go up’ be­cause from the one storey you get city glimpses, so if you went up a level the views would be mag­nif­i­cent.”

Past the se­cure front yard, the en­try opens up to re­veal a charm­ing cen­tral hall­way lead­ing to four dou­ble-sized bed­rooms with high ceil­ings and tim­ber floor­boards.
