ICON ON THE MARKET
BUILT in 1936, this iconic South Perth home is being offered for the first time in 79 years.
The residence has been in the owner’s family since 1938 and several generations have lived there.
“I grew up here with my parents and brothers and I also brought my son up in the home,” she said.
The property has become famous for its roses, with many prize-winning varieties still in the garden.
“Over the years I have planted more than 70 different varieties of roses and have been a part of the Rose and Camellia Society,” the owner said.
The Californian bungalow retains all the character of a bygone era, including timber floors, zinclight windows and doors, high ornate ceilings with roses, fretwork and jarrah trims such as plate rails.
The home has a front formal lounge room, a separate kitchen, a dining room, two bedrooms, a bathroom, garage, big front veranda, rear family room extension added in 1988 and a paved patio.
The R15-zoned 1171sq m block includes 27.4m frontage, offering endless options for renovations or a new build.
This fantastic, desirable location provides a relaxed and family-friendly lifestyle, with nearby schools including Wesley College, Penrhos College and Collier Primary School.
On weekends, stroll down the Angelo Street shopping strip and enjoy the many restaurants and cafes, catch a film at the Cygnet Cinema or head down to the river for a picnic.
The bus stop just down the road takes you straight into the CBD, or hop on the ferry to Elizabeth Quay for a scenic commute.
