LABOUR OF LOVE WORTH EF­FORT

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

THIS orig­i­nal 1950s prop­erty has been beau­ti­fully ren­o­vated into a mod­ern, stylish and com­fort­able home.

The cur­rent own­ers bought the house as a ren­o­va­tion project to sell on and have gone all out to cre­ate a fan­tas­tic fam­ily dwelling.

“I was ini­tially at­tracted to Num­ber Six for ei­ther one of my three daugh­ters,” one of the own­ers said.

“Un­for­tu­nately it was way too much work for any of them to take on, so I told my hus­band that we should buy it and ren­o­vate it.

“I couldn’t pass up the op­por­tu­nity to re­store the home to its for­mer glory and it’s been an over­all love af­fair that has de­vel­oped dur­ing the process.”

The house has been trans­formed from floor to ceil­ing, with new lime-washed black­butt floors, mod­ern fit­tings and fix­tures, a fresh de­sign in­spired by homes in the Hamp­tons and even a change in the lay­out.

“Al­though we set out to do only mi­nor changes, along the way we con­ducted a ma­jor floor plan change to en­com­pass all the things re­quired in our mod­ern-day liv­ing while still try­ing to keep the charm of its ori­gins,” the owner said.

Along­side five bed­rooms and three bath­rooms, the spa­cious open-plan din­ing and fam­ily flows from the kitchen, which fea­tures Cae­sar­stone benches, a walk-in pantry and banks of draw­ers.

The cov­ered al­fresco area is per­fect for year-round en­ter­tain­ing.
