Park life follows accidental find
Located near public transport, a Clarence Park home was perfect for its owners for 22 years, writes Tom Bowden.
APRIVATE bungalow in a nice suburb attracted Joyce Correll and her husband to Clarence Park 22 years ago.
The couple found the home by accident.
Ms Correll says it offered them more than the other units they were looking at at the time.
‘‘My daughter lives at Millswood and we happened to see the sign out in front of the home, went in and had a look around, drove around to inspect the neighbourhood and decided it was perfect for us and we bought it,’’ Ms Correll says.
‘‘We liked the bigger rooms and the high ceilings that we weren’t seeing in the units we’d been looking at and it was so close to public transport, which is now a Go Zone down one end on Goodwood Rd and one at the other end on East Ave which is also a Go Zone.’’
The home has two bedrooms and the updated kitchen features a gas cooktop, electric oven and white appliances.
The main bedroom has an ensuite and dressing room.
The main rooms have jarrah floorboards and the carpeted lounge room has a fireplace.
Ms Correll says the property is close to all major services and public transport is nearby.
‘‘We’ve also got the railway station just down the road . . . my husband used to go to uni on North Tce and it only took him seven minutes on the train.’’
