MAS­SIVE MAKEOVER ADDS CHARM

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

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.
