Rose Cottage pretty as a picture
Charmer expected to sell fast. By NATALIE HORDOV
BLINK and you might miss it – delightful “Rose Cottage” is another home that is expected to sell fast.
The Property Exchange said turn-ofthe-century homes were in demand and this home was in an attractive price point.
It certainly is as pretty as a picture, set behind a white fence, with a climbing rosecovered archway above the gate and gardens beds filled with roses and lavender.
You can sit on the charming veranda and enjoy the perfumed air.
The light and bright interior is just as picturesque, with timber floorboards throughout, leadlight entry, decorative ceilings, brass light switches, decorative arch and chandelier in the hallway, and ornamental antique wall phone in the kitchen.
The open-plan living area is spacious, yet cosy at the same time.
A fireplace with timber mantelpiece is the focal point of the sitting area, while the kitchen has a lovely timber benchtop and white cupboards and drawers, ceramic sink and timber and iron hanging pot rack.
French doors in the dining area open to the tiled alfresco area under the bullnose veranda.
There are three large bedrooms at the front of the home, one with an iron gas fireplace with tiled hearth and timber mantel.
A study could be used as a fourth bedroom.
The Federation-style bathroom has tiles to dado height, with an ornate cap tile, timber vanity unit with seashell basin, clawfoot bath and double shower.
The home is on a 372sq m block a short walk from Rokeby road and the centre of Subiaco with its shops, restaurants, bars, and cafes
Kings Park is also nearby.
