You’ll feel right at home

Warm and cosy. By NATALIE HOR­DOV

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Reviews -

THIS home has a very warm and wel­com­ing feel.

You could en­joy a glass of wine on the front porch or pull up a chair for a cosy chat by the fire­place.

The owner has lived there for 22 years, ren­o­vat­ing the post­war home while re­tain­ing the de­light­ful old-world fea­tures that ap­pealed when he bought it.

“It was a typ­i­cal two-bed­room home with sleep­out when we pur­chased it,” he said.

“We added an ex­tra bed­room, mod­ern kitchen and large decked area, giv­ing the prop­erty lots of light and an airy feel­ing.”

The home has tim­ber floor­ing in the liv­ing ar­eas, with high or­nate ceil­ings and pic­ture rails in the formal lounge and din­ing room. The newer, open-plan fam­ily area in­cludes the stylish kitchen with re­con­sti­tuted stone bench­tops and break­fast bar.

Out­side, there is a lovely en­ter­tain­ing area with tim­ber deck­ing and a spa where you can sit and watch the sun set over the trees.

When he pur­chased the home, the owner liked its prox­im­ity to Lake Monger, Leed­erville and Subiaco, plus the beach, city and free­way. Over the years, he and his fam­ily have also en­joyed its sense of com­mu­nity.

“Our child grew up play­ing with all the chil­dren in the street,” he said.

“There is a Christ­mas street party and New Year's Eve we spent with friends from the street and then walked up to the lake to watch the fire­works.” ■
