Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

SUR­ROUNDED by ul­tra-mod­ern dwellings, this gor­geous Fed­er­a­tion home stands out on Ka­roo Street for all the best rea­sons.

The el­e­gant lux­ury res­i­dence, which was orig­i­nally built in the 1920s, is brim­ming with orig­i­nal her­itage charm that spills out into ev­ery cor­ner of the el­e­vated 1009sq m block.

Up the wind­ing path and past the man­i­cured front gar­den and bub­bling wa­ter fea­ture, visi­tors will ar­rive at the curved ve­randa fea­tur­ing tuck-pointed brick­work and a dou­ble-door en­try.

In­side, the strik­ing lead­light win­dows al­low in plenty of light, high­light­ing very spe­cial fea­tures such as the jar­rah floor­boards, orig­i­nal light­ing fix­tures, cus­tom-built cab­i­netry, or­nate ceil­ings and ar­chi­traves.

These dec­o­ra­tive flour­ishes are best ap­pre­ci­ated in the master bed­room, which has front­fac­ing bay win­dows, plush car­pet and a ho­tel-style open spa en­suite.

There are mul­ti­ple liv­ing ar­eas, in­clud­ing the for­mal lounge and din­ing room.

In the open-plan meals area, the kitchen has un­der­gone a re­cent ren­o­va­tion and added stylish gloss cab­i­netry and sleek stone bench­tops that still main­tain a clas­sic feel.

At the rear, there is a gor­geous el­e­vated al­fresco area with a pool, a shel­tered din­ing area and lush, es­tab­lished green­ery.

Other fea­tures in­clude a fresh coat of paint in­side, split-sys­tem airconditioning, gas and wood fire­places, and a dou­ble lock-up garage at the rear.
