SE­CURE YOUR SLICE OF HIS­TORY

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL - Lucy Ruther­ford

THIS orig­i­nal Carlisle home has been with the same fam­ily for more than 100 years.

The owner’s son said the 1935sq m prop­erty had a long his­tory in his fam­ily.

“My grand­fa­ther’s par­ents built the house in 1914 and it now be­longs to my mum,” he said.

“My mum and all her sib­lings were born there and it has tremen­dous sen­ti­men­tal value; in fact, she only moved out when she mar­ried my father.

“The house has been va­cant since the ’80s but it has been main­tained by my brother for the past 18 years and he has done a re­ally great job.”

This rare rec­tan­gu­lar cor­ner block boasts a wide 77 me­tre frontage to Archer Street and 25 me­tres to We­ston Street and O’Dea Street to ei­ther side.

The location comes with great life­style op­tions, with shops along Archer Street, Lath­lain Park nearby and the Vic­to­ria Park cafe strip just down the road of­fer­ing an ar­ray of res­tau­rants and re­tail fa­cil­i­ties.

Also close by are schools, parks and pub­lic trans­port, in­clud­ing Carlisle train sta­tion, pro­vid­ing easy ac­cess to Perth CBD.

The block has po­ten­tial for rede­vel­op­ment or could be your next ren­o­va­tion project, with the house to be sold in an as-is con­di­tion.

“Along­side the house there is a garage or work­shop, out­door laun­dry and work­ing bore and the back half of the lot is full of beau­ti­ful, full-sized trees,” the owner’s son said.
