CHAR­AC­TER HOME IN A TOP SPOT

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

EV­ERY now and again, a home comes on to the mar­ket that of­fers op­por­tu­ni­ties for fam­ily get­to­geth­ers and af­ter­noons in the sun.

Buy­ers who want to cre­ate their own mem­o­ries will find a spe­cial space at 86A Carnar­von Street – a quaint two-bed­room house built in 1927.

Sell­ing agent Craig Wild­man said the prop­erty was per­fect for buy­ers look­ing for a well-priced en­try into East Vic­to­ria Park.

“It’s ideal for a young cou­ple or a sin­gle per­son look­ing to get into the sub­urb,” he said.

“It’s a nice char­ac­ter home in a great lo­ca­tion close to the gym and the cafe strip.”

Along the tree-lined street, an unas­sum­ing drive­way leads to the dark tim­ber gates, which slide away to re­veal the pri­vate cottage.

Past the paved front court­yard with shade sails – per­fect for bar­be­cues – the en­try into the home is on the decked ve­randa.

Char­ac­ter fea­tures cre­ate a sense of time­less­ness in the dwelling, from the richly hued jar­rah floor­boards to the dec­o­ra­tive, lofty ceil­ings.

But a thought­ful ren­o­va­tion en­sures the res­i­dence is de­cid­edly con­tem­po­rary, mar­ry­ing mod­ern styling with charm­ing ex­tras such as the orig­i­nal stove re­cess in the kitchen.

The lounge is a spa­cious area and has a lovely fea­ture fire­place.

This con­nects di­rectly to the main bed­room, which has built-in robes and a lovely view of the front court­yard.

Fur­ther in­side is the open-plan kitchen and dining area – a space drenched in nat­u­ral light flood­ing in from the back yard.

It has a 900mm free­stand­ing oven and cooker, tim­ber coun­ter­tops and stacks of stor­age in­clud­ing a pantry.

Just off this area are the sec­ond bed­room and the bath­room, both of which are beau­ti­fully pre­sented.

Dou­ble french doors from the dining room open into the rear court­yard, re­veal­ing an­other al­fresco area with a shade sail that is a lovely spot for meals un­der the stars.

Other fea­tures in­clude a store­room, and a lo­ca­tion within walk­ing dis­tance of schools, bus stops, the Park Cen­tre and Carlisle train sta­tion.
