Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

BUY­ERS who ap­pre­ci­ate the beauty of the Art Deco move­ment but also want the mod­cons will find it hard not to fall in love with 4 Vista Street.

A lot of care has been taken to pre­serve much of the 1939 char­ac­ter home’s orig­i­nal fea­tures, in­clud­ing high dec­o­ra­tive ceil­ings, or­nate cor­nices, pol­ished tim­ber floors, lead­light win­dows, pic­ture rails, two fire­places and even a claw­foot bath.

The hall­marks of the pe­riod ex­tend to the lay­out as well, such as in the gen­er­ous king- sized bed­rooms.

But a clearly con­tem­po­rary and com­ple­men­tary ren­o­va­tion has added to the home’s ap­peal, start­ing with the mod­ern kitchen.

This is a true dream and fea­tures sleek white cab­i­netry, stain­less steel cook­ing ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a 900mm gas stove, a semi-in­te­grated dish­washer and a break­fast bar with wa­ter­fall edge.

This con­nects to the din­ing room with fire­place and also over­looks a very spa­cious sunken lounge, which flows eas­ily out to the al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing area and lawns.

Out here, to­wards the rear of the block, there is a sep­a­rate air­con­di­tioned stu­dio that is per­fect for the cre­ative types, teenagers or guests.

The bed­rooms are well sep­a­rated with the three mi­nor ones to­ward the front of the home.

The mas­ter bed­room comes with a walk-in robe and en­suite.

Com­plet­ing the home are the laun­dry, a sep­a­rate toi­let, and an out­side store­room.
