CHARACTER AND CONVENIENCE
A SOUGHT-AFTER central location and old-world charm marry beautifully in this family-friendly package in the heart of Belmont.
“Probably the best thing about the house is that it’s really quiet and peaceful,” one of the owners said.
“It is a really nice street and the houses are all wellmaintained.
“Belmont is also a very convenient suburb and it’s easy for me to get to work in Osborne Park, get to transport and shopping, and the facilities are really good.”
The 136sq m character residence, which is on a 450sq m block, still retains many of its original features, but has had a thoughtful refurbishment that gives it a contemporary edge.
In the front lounge, gorgeous jarrah floorboards and detailed ceilings remain, but there are modern comforts such as the split-system airconditioning.
This open-plan main living space flows into the dining and kitchen areas, which feature built-in storage, stainless steel cooking appliances and a Miele dishwasher.
There is a second family room with parquetry flooring and a built-in bar.
Making up the sleeping quarters are the master bedroom and two double-sized minor bedrooms, all with built-in robes.
Occupants share the renovated bathroom, which now features a bath, a separate shower, a spacious vanity and a heat lamp.
Completing the inside spaces are a large utility room or study, and the laundry with toilet.
Stepping out to the alfresco entertaining area, there is a large patio with easy-care paved floors for barbecues and dining and a smaller decked area for more intimate gatherings.
The property offers parking at the front and a tandem carport at the rear with a storeroom.
