Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

ORIG­I­NALLY built in the mid-1980s, this beau­ti­fully ren­o­vated res­i­dence in Red­cliffe still re­tains much of the warmth and char­ac­ter ex­pected of a home of this vin­tage.

The three-bed­room, fully air­con­di­tioned villa is po­si­tioned in a quiet com­plex, lo­cated a short drive to sev­eral pop­u­lar ameni­ties.

“I have lived here for five-and-a-half years and bought it when I was a fly-in, fly-out worker,” the owner said.

“It’s close to ev­ery­thing in­clud­ing the air­port, As­cot Race­course, un­lim­ited beau­ti­ful spots along the river and all the new projects in­clud­ing the sta­dium where the AFL will be played. “I also have friendly neigh­bours.” Inside the home, there is tim­ber floor­ing through­out the main liv­ing area, which con­sists of the front lounge room with ceil­ing fan, a din­ing area and the cot­tage-style kitchen with a dish­washer.

Hid­den away be­hind closed doors is a sur­pris­ing and mod­ern ad­di­tion: a beau­ti­ful theatre room with new car­pets, a pro­jec­tor, screen, split-sys­tem re­verse-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing, down­lights and in-ceil­ing speak­ers.

This ex­tends out to an enor­mous al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing area, which stretches the full width of the home.

“I spend the most time in the theatre,” the owner said.

“Next to that, it would be the back­yard as it can be en­closed and feels like an­other room with the kitch­enette and bar­be­cue. Plus it’s great to be able to see the big screen from out there too, per­fect for watch­ing the footy.”

Com­plet­ing the floor plan are three bed­rooms with built-in robes, the bath­room, a sep­a­rate toi­let, the laun­dry room, a linen closet, and a dou­ble car­port with a store­room.
