MASSIVE MAKEOVER ADDS CHARM
EXTENSIVE glazing, red brick and the lowpitched roofline of this Kewdale home’s architecture make its 1960s origins unmistakeable.
But while the home has plenty of reminders of that bygone era from the streetfront, inside it all makes way for a 21st Century design.
“The house has had a massive makeover in the last few years with a brand-new kitchen and mostly new bathroom,” the owner said.
“The carpet and lino were pulled up and the floorboards polished, and the fireplace was filled in.
“Before it was renovated, the house was all original so everything was yellow, brown or pink with mismatched tiles in the kitchen.”
The residence has also been freshly painted to showcase the gleaming floors and high ceilings.
The floor plan will appeal to modern households, with a living room just past the entry, a light-drenched open-plan kitchen and dining area, and three spacious bedrooms.
Outside, there is a sheltered alfresco entertaining area with a feature stone floor, extensive low-maintenance paved areas and freshly mulched reticulated gardens.
On a 442sq m block, there is plenty of room left to add an extension or redevelop.
Add to that a central location in walking distance to Tomato Lake Reserve and public transport on President Street, and quick access to Orrong Road and Perth Airport, there is lots of potential here.
