Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

CLAS­SIC 1960s styling dom­i­nates this lov­ingly ren­o­vated cottage that is nes­tled into a handy pocket in Cloverdale.

Pol­ished tim­ber floor­boards and high ceil­ings stretch across the house and marry with all the mod­ern in­clu­sions seam­lessly.

But much of the old-fash­ioned charm still re­mains, such as in the jar­rah trims around the doors and win­dows through­out.

This is beau­ti­fully demon­strated in the air­con­di­tioned, open-plan main living space, which still has the fire­place man­tle in place.

The lounge leads straight through to the dining and kitchen; a chic new workspace with stacks of stor­age, stain­less steel cooking ap­pli­ances and a dish­washer.

All three bed­rooms are roomy – an­other in­di­ca­tor of that by­gone era – and have lovely sash win­dows.

Just like the kitchen, the fully tiled bath­room has been given a con­tem­po­rary new look with a com­bined shower and bath with glass screen.

Mov­ing out­side, the back yard is an invit­ing ex­ten­sion of the house and fea­tures a paved al­fresco look­ing across the large lawn and sur­rounded by es­tab­lished gar­dens.

There is also a vegie patch, herb gar­den and a wa­ter fea­ture, which pro­vides a sooth­ing sound­track to the re­laxed at­mos­phere.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures in­clude a large work­shop with side ac­cess, se­cure front gates to the drive­way, low-volt­age down­lights, an in­stan­ta­neous gas hot-wa­ter sys­tem and a 562sq m block.
