Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

SIT­TING pretty on a green-ti­tle 429sq m block along a tree-lined street in Kens­ing­ton, this char­ac­ter res­i­dence is pic­ture-per­fect.

The gor­geous fam­ily abode will de­light with its charm­ing pe­riod fea­tures but will sur­prise with the thought­ful, con­tem­po­rary ren­o­va­tion that has given the home a new lease on life.

The owner has clev­erly trans­formed the house over time since he bought it 14 years ago, com­plet­ing the ex­ten­sion in the middle of last year.

“We ba­si­cally changed it from a small three-bed­room place to what it is now,” he said.

“There was only a small kitchen pre­vi­ously and the lay­out was very awk­ward so we ex­panded the house to­ward the back.

“We kept the high ceil­ings, put in the al- fresco area and now we have mas­sive win­dows and bi-folds where the liv­ing area is to cap­ture the city views.”

Com­ple­ment­ing solid tim­ber floors, high or­nate ceil­ings, dado rails and white plan­ta­tion shut­ters, the home now fea­tures sleek, mod­ern ad­di­tions.

The lovely four-bed­room, two-bath­room house now has a strik­ing open-plan main liv­ing area, cen­tred on the kitchen with stone bench­tops, qual­ity Euro­pean ap­pli­ances, plenty of work and stor­age space and fan­tas­tic in­door/out­door servery win­dows.

The lounge and din­ing over­look the lush rear gar­dens, where the al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing area and pool with wa­ter fea­ture cre­ate a re­sort­style am­bi­ence.

All bed­rooms are gen­er­ously sized.
