PUR­CHASE A PIECE OF PERTH’S PAST

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

THIS 1940s home of­fers the chance to own a beau­ti­ful orig­i­nal Perth prop­erty in the heart of the city.

The pre­vi­ous own­ers were dili­gent in main­tain­ing the pe­riod look and feel of the home, so en­ter­ing the prop­erty feels like a step back in time.

“It is a Cal­i­for­nian bun­ga­low with con­sid­er­able Art Deco re­vival el­e­ments,” one owner said.

“We re­cently en­gaged a build­ing in­spec­tor who noted that the home is in sig­nif­i­cantly above-av­er­age con­di­tion for its age and is rich in ’40s-style char­ac­ter­is­tics.”

Lush gar­dens lead you up the front porch, past the stun­ning dou­ble lead­light doors and into a wide en­try foyer with high dec­o­ra­tive ceil­ings and pol­ished hard­wood jar­rah floor­boards.

To the left is the for­mal lounge room com­plete with fea­ture brick fire­place and bay win­dow, a for­mal din­ing room and the coun­try-style kitchen with heaps of stor­age space and room for a din­ing ta­ble for ca­sual meals.

At the rear is a car­peted ac­tiv­ity room with ac­cess to the laun­dry, sep­a­rate toi­let and back ve­randa.

Brick steps lead down to the es­tab­lished lawn and gar­dens along­side a big work­shop and gazebo per­fect for en­ter­tain­ing.

The gar­dens are a fo­cal point of the home and as such have won many lo­cal coun­cil gar­den awards over the years.

The lo­ca­tion is pic­tureper­fect, close to Lath­lain Park, Crown Perth and an easy com­mute to the CBD.
