GOR­GEOUS COTTAGE

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

EV­ERY­THING’S com­ing up roses when you live at 70 An­stey Street in scenic South Perth.

While away the day gar­den­ing or visit a nearby cafe for that morn­ing cuppa. Bet­ter yet, soak up the gor­geous WA sum­mer in the pri­vate back yard, com­plete with a be­low-ground pool and al­fresco space.

Come din­ner time, pick man­goes, lemons and or­anges from the bore-retic­u­lated mini or­chard or spice up those steaks with a pinch of fresh herbs from the vegie patch.

In walk­ing dis­tance to the dining and shop­ping precincts on Coode and An­gelo streets, all this awaits in this gor­geous cottage on an 829sq m block.

The owner, who bought the home seven years ago, lived there with wife and chil­dren un­til re­cently.

“We had our fam­ily of five living there but the kids have moved on now, which is why my wife and I are sell­ing,” he said.

“We spent a lot of time in the fam­ily living ar­eas and the rear en­ter­tain­ing area, es­pe­cially when the kids were still teenagers.”

Past man­i­cured rose gar­dens, a mod­est fa­cade greets vis­i­tors. The en­try opens to re­veal a light-drenched front lounge fea­tur­ing a fea­ture fire­place man­tle, or­nate cor­nic­ing and pol­ished tim­ber floor­boards.

A door re­veals the study or guest bed­room, which car­ries through with the pe­riod fea­tures.

On the other side of the lounge, a set of dou­ble doors lead through to the open-plan main living space, where there is a cor­ner kitchen over­look­ing the dining and lounge and out to the gor­geous out­doors.

The mas­ter bed­room is tucked away just off the fam­ily area and has built-in robes and an en­suite.

The two sec­ondary bed­rooms, also with built-in robes, are in a sep­a­rate wing with the main bath­room.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures in­clude ducted air­con­di­tion­ing, a se­cure store­room with roller door at the front, a well-equipped laun­dry and pow­der room.

There is also off-street park­ing for four ve­hi­cles be­hind se­cu­rity gates.

The own­ers said the lo­ca­tion was un­beat­able.

“What we re­ally love is the lo­ca­tion and the prox­im­ity to shops, the cafes; ev­ery­thing was within walk­ing dis­tance,” he said.

“It’s a re­ally, re­ally great area with fan­tas­tic neigh­bours.”
