A warm and friendly feel

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Residential -

clas­sic 1960s abode was built when City Beach was first be­com­ing a top pick for fam­i­lies want­ing to live in a beach­side com­mu­nity and has only changed hands once in all the decades since.

El­e­vated to catch the view to­ward the Port of Fre­man­tle and large enough to ac­com­mo­date the Brady Bunch, it has so much po­ten­tial to un­lock.

The cur­rent floor plan in­cludes four enor­mous bed­rooms, a self-con­tained down­stairs stu­dio, an enor­mous kitchen, study, fam­ily liv­ing and a fab­u­lous cov­ered al­fresco area large enough to host a big crowd.

One of the cur­rent own­ers said 19 Baramba Road had been a won­der­ful multi-gen­er­a­tional home, with her el­derly mother and two daugh­ters all able to live com­fort­ably un­der one roof for the last 14 years.

“We fell in love with the house be­cause it is such a warm fam­ily home. The view from the kitchen win­dow of the huge pool and the won­der­ful out­look from the front of the house re­ally caught our eye.

“The abil­ity to have grandma liv­ing in­de­pen­dently down­stairs has been a lovely op­por­tu­nity for all of us. In 2002 we turned two large rum­pus rooms down- stairs into the self con­tained area, adding the kitch­enette, bath­room and sep­a­rate laun­dry. The project made such a great use of space that was pre­vi­ously un­used. It has be­come a very ver­sa­tile area for use as a fam­ily room or a sep­a­rate apart­ment for older chil­dren.”
