Sea­side de­light

Come home to a two-storey charmer near the wa­ter’s edge.

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Residential - By LUCY RUTHER­FORD

WITH colo­nial charm and im­mac­u­late mod­ern ren­o­va­tion, this home is truly mag­i­cal.

You know you are in for a treat be­fore you have even stepped through the front door, with artis­tic front gates, pris­tine land­scaped gar­den, drive­way and white­washed sea­side cot­tage fa­cade with dec­o­ra­tive fret­work on the veranda and bal­cony greet­ing you.

In­side, the orig­i­nal pol­ished floor­boards and glass pan­elled in­te­rior doors, new fea­tures such as mod­ern light fit­tings, painted fea­ture walls and sil­ver and wood spiral stair­case make a stun­ning cen­tre­piece to the home.

The kitchen and din­ing are north fac­ing and big bi-fold doors open out to the big, partly cov­ered en­ter­tain­ing deck with steps down to the gar­den and a view out over es­tab­lished trees.

Up­stairs, three bed­rooms all fea­ture built-in robes and one has ac­cess to the bal­cony.

There is a fourth bed­room down­stairs to cre­ate op­tions for a study or guest bed­room.

For ex­tra stor­age, there is a huge sub­ter­ranean base­ment fea­tur­ing a wine cel­lar.

The home is in a prime lo­ca­tion, just four houses up from the beach­side track and four houses down from Hel­ston Park.
