Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

THIS re­vamped char­ac­ter home of­fers space, flex­i­bil­ity and charm, with plenty of op­por­tu­nity to ex­tend to make the home your own.

With a buyer’s guide start­ing from $500,000, this is a par­tic­u­larly great op­por­tu­nity for first-home buy­ers, young cou­ples or down­siz­ers.

The cur­rent own­ers have lived in the house for 10 years and have un­der­taken sev­eral ren­o­va­tions while main­tain­ing its orig­i­nal fea­tures.

“We un­der­stand that the house was built around 1959 as part of a post-war hous­ing devel­op­ment,” they said.

“In 2006 we re­moved the old car­pets and linoleum floors, had the orig­i­nal jar­rah floors sanded and pol­ished, re­placed the orig­i­nal tile roof with zin­calume and in­stalled ducted re­ver­se­cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing.

“We re­vi­talised the back yard with liq­uid lime­stone, turn­ing two pa­tios into a sin­gle large pa­tio and in­stalled deck­ing.

“Most re­cently, we had so­lar pan­els in­stalled, ren­o­vated the kitchen and ren­o­vated the bath­room, adding in a toi­let.”

En­joy the light-filled open-plan liv­ing, the stylish kitchen with lovely tim­ber and brick fea­tures, and the three bed­rooms in­clud­ing the mas­ter with built-in robes.

The 688sq m prop­erty is also on a cor­ner block and has a fan­tas­tic out­look across leafy Hig­gins Park op­po­site.

Sev­eral schools and Curtin Univer­sity are in walk­ing distance, while Al­bany High­way is close by, packed with ameni­ties in­clud­ing restau­rants, cafes, shops and The Park Cen­tre.
