Kingly fea­tures are sim­ply grand

Op­u­lent liv­ing in a beau­ti­ful, quiet sub­urb is hard to pass up, writes Tom Dougherty.

THE larger rooms of a bun­ga­low was at­trac­tive for ven­dor Mark Brindal when he first saw the prop­erty more than 20 years ago, and the lo­ca­tion clinched the deal.

‘‘The Lib­eral At­tor­ney­Gen­eral Robert Law­son said to me some­thing that didn’t oc­cur to me but I think it is true, ‘Kings Park is Un­ley Park un­der­stated’, and it is, it’s a beau­ti­ful area,’’ he says.

‘‘It is a quiet area with nice, tree-lined streets.

‘‘This is a bun­ga­low which we were very lucky with, it has or­nate plas­ter ceil­ings, beau­ti­ful fire­places every­where and lovely tim­ber floors.’’

Built in 1930, the brick home has four bed­rooms, with the mas­ter fea­tur­ing a fire­place, a walk-in robe and an en­suite with a bath.

Two of the other bed­rooms also fea­ture fire­places.

The kitchen, which was up­dated eight years ago, is in the mid­dle of the home and it fea­tures a walk-in pantry, a but­ler’s pantry and white tim­ber cup­boards.

At the front of the home is a for­mal lounge­room, with a door through to the for­mal din­ing room, both of which have pol­ished tim­ber floors.

‘‘It is a house that in a sense is made for en­ter­tain­ing, the back has a big fam­ily room with an al­fresco area with a three-me­tre wide ve­randa, you can do ei­ther for­mal or in­for­mal en­ter­tain­ing,’’ Mr Brindal says.

The ca­sual liv­ing area at the back is tiled and has views to the gar­den, which has a lawn area, and one of the bed­rooms at the back has french doors out to the cov­ered area. The prop­erty also has a bath­room with a bath and a shower, a laun­dry with a linen closet, a car­port at the side and a shed with a panel-lift door in the back­yard.
