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