CHAR­AC­TER AND CON­VE­NIENCE

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

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.
