Per­fect union

Great char­ac­ter and prac­ti­cal liv­ing blend beau­ti­fully in this Su­bi­aco home.

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Residential -

THE char­ac­ter ex­te­rior of this home will make you sigh with delight, while the ren­o­vated in­te­rior will im­press.

The own­ers said it was built in the 1920s, with a mod­ern ex­ten­sion by nash+ghersinich com­pleted in 2004.

“The home is time­less, stylish, with great char­ac­ter and very prac­ti­cal liv­ing,” they said.

“It is also free-flow­ing with great en­ergy.”

They pur­chased the home in 2011. “It's a great lo­ca­tion,” they said. “This is one of the best streets in Su­bi­aco and within walk­ing dis­tance of parks, bars, cof­fee shops and schools.

“It is also a family-friendly area, the friendli­est street we have ever lived in.

“We know nearly ev­ery­one on the street and the chil­dren play to­gether reg­u­larly.”

The home is tucked away be­hind high hedges on a 538sq m block.

Char­ac­ter fea­tures in­clude high ceil­ings and lead­light win­dows.

The ex­ten­sion houses a beau­ti­ful open-plan kitchen, din­ing and family room.

The chic kitchen, with re­con­sti­tuted stone bench­tops and am­ple stor­age space, has traver­tine tile floor­ing, while the liv­ing and din­ing area have pol­ished floor­boards.

This room looks out to a court­yard and pool with deck­ing, and a huge green hedge makes an in­ter­est­ing ex­ter­nal frame for the TV wall.

There are four bed­rooms and two bath­rooms, including the huge mas­ter with open fire­place and en­suite.

Other fea­tures in­clude re­verse-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing, front door in­ter­com, alarm and 20sq m of loft space.

The own­ers are sell­ing as they may be mov­ing to the South-west, and they will take many happy memories of their time in this home with them.

“We’ve raised our two chil­dren, now three and six, here and ac­quired our first pet dog,” they said.

“The chil­dren scoot up and down the side path reg­u­larly with the dog chas­ing them. We have also had great birth­day par­ties where we con­vert the garage into an out­door liv­ing area and have a band play.” ■
