EL­E­GANCE OF A BY­GONE ERA

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

STEP back in time with this Ed­war­dian-style, tuck-pointed brick home that oozes el­e­gance of a by­gone era.

Past the se­cure front yard, the red brick fa­cade is ac­cented by tim­ber finials and a tiled ve­randa; a charm­ing re­minder of its history.

In­side the ten­anted home, lead­light glass pan­els, high or­nate ceil­ings, pic­ture rails, jar­rah floor­boards and dec­o­ra­tive arches con­tinue the char­ac­ter theme through­out.

The floor plan is just as clas­sic, fea­tur­ing two large bed­rooms, in­clud­ing the master with built-in robes and a sep­a­rate fam­ily room with fire­place.

The kitchen and meals area, with its strik­ing checker­board tiled floors, is re­fresh­ingly spa­cious.

It has a free­stand­ing cooker and oven, am­ple stor­age in­clud­ing a pantry cup­board and over­head shelves, and a flex­i­ble lay­out.

The bath­room has been ren­o­vated and now fea­tures a glass-screened shower and a gen­er­ous van­ity unit with stor­age.

Out­side, there is a cosy brick­paved spot for bar­be­cues that is well-pro­tected from the el­e­ments.

Ex­tras in­clude re­verse-cy­cle airconditioning, a laun­dry and shed.
