OLDER-STYLE CHARM AP­PEAL­ING

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

THIS neat and tidy Man­ning home com­bines old-world charm with mod­ern com­forts.

The cur­rent own­ers have lived in the house since 2007, at­tracted by its style and lo­ca­tion,

“We loved the older-style charm to this place and the ease of get­ting to pub­lic trans­port and the Swan River,” they said.

The home is packed with all the fea­tures you would ex­pect from a char­ac­ter-style home, such as the red-brick ex­te­rior, pol­ished jar­rah floor­boards, high or­nate ceil­ings, fea­ture cor­nic­ing, tim­ber slid­ing doors and tim­ber win­dow frames.

The front lounge room of­fers a cosy place to en­ter­tain or re­lax with the fea­ture brick fire­place, while the dec­o­ra­tive ceil­ing fan keeps the room cool in sum­mer.

A slid­ing door leads through to the din­ing room with space for eight guests and con­nects to the spa­cious kitchen with dish­washer, mi­crowave shelf, dou­ble fridge re­cess and am­ple bench and tim­ber cab­i­netry.

The three bed­rooms have car­pets and there are floor-to-ceil­ing built-in cup­boards in the mas­ter.

The bath­room has been re­mod­elled and in­cludes a sep­a­rate bath­tub.

“This home has such a re­lax­ing feel as soon as you walk in,” the own­ers said.

“It's great hav­ing the front lawn area for kids and dogs and the back deck area with roller blinds is just per­fect in win­ter and sum­mer for en­ter­tain­ing.”

Other fea­tures of the 402sq m prop­erty in­clude a dou­ble car­port with au­to­matic door, ducted air­con­di­tion­ing, NBN con­nec­tion, an alarm and bore retic­u­la­tion to the gar­den.

A bus stop out the front of­fers easy ac­cess to Water­ford Plaza, Curtin Univer­sity and Can­ning Bridge sta­tion, and pri­mary and high schools are just own the road.

“This place is so low main­te­nance and it has been a joy to live in,” the own­ers said.
