Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

A SLICE of sum­mer par­adise awaits in this cosy villa in a se­cure com­plex at the heart of St James.

The hus­band and wife who own the res­i­dence have en­joyed liv­ing in the hard-to-ri­val lo­ca­tion for the past two years.

“It’s ex­cel­lent – there is a choice of four buses go­ing into the city on Albany High­way ar­riv­ing ev­ery 10 min­utes, and they also take you through Vic­to­ria Park and to Carousel,” the hus­band said.

“The Welsh­pool train sta­tion is also only a seven-minute walk away.”

On top of the ex­cel­lent po­si­tion, the new own­ers can also look for­ward to spend­ing scorch­ing days by the com­plex pool, or host­ing friends and fam­ily in the com­mu­nal out­door area.

When it is time to re­treat into the two-bed­room home, there is also plenty of room for ev­ery­one there.

It has queen-sized bed­rooms with built-in robes and new car­pets – one of which is ideal as a guest suite for visi­tors.

In the main liv­ing space, the beau­ti­fully pre­sented kitchen is per­fect for cook­ing up a feast, with qual­ity stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and heaps of stor­age in­clud­ing a mi­crowave oven re­cess.

This looks across the air­con­di­tioned din­ing and lounge room, which flows out on to the paved al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing area.

“We love the gar­den; it’s re­ally low-main­te­nance and we en­ter­tain a lot there in the sum­mer,’ the hus­band said.

“We also use the pool in the com­plex quite a bit.

“Oth­er­wise, we’ve got fam­ily in Vic­to­ria Park and we just walk about 10 to 15 min­utes to meet them at The Bal­moral Ho­tel for a meal.”

Round­ing off the floor plan are the gen­er­ous com­bined bath­room/laun­dry – which has a bath, sep­a­rate shower, a van­ity with am­ple stor­age and fully equipped laun­dry al­cove – and the sep­a­rate toi­let.
