Modern end to Art Deco beginnings
Charm of a golden era of architecture with all the latest features for your comfort. By NATALIE HORDOV
THE last time this home was for sale, it was snapped up in under two weeks and it is sure to sell quickly again.
Built in the 1930s, it has lovely Art Deco features including a veranda with pillars, entrance hall, ornate ceilings and detailed cornices, picture rails, tuckpointed fireplace, leadlight windows and jarrah floorboards.
The old-world tone of the home is complemented by modern renovations including a farmhouse-style kitchen with a free-standing Delonghi oven, stainlesssteel splashback, white timber cabinetry and contrasting dark Corian benchtops.
The home has formal living and dining rooms, a study and an open-plan living/kitchen/casual meals area.
The meals area opens to a roomy alfresco area, with timber-lined ceiling, and sparkling pool.
The lovely front gardens provide more room for entertaining, a game of footy or cricket, or the children to run around.
There are three large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a combined bathroom/laundry.
The master bedroom has a walk-in robe, ensuite and Art Deco ceiling.
A picture window overlooks the rolling lawns and native trees; a great view as you start the day.
The home is on a 1037sq m block, opposite Winmarley Park, close to Floreat Form, the Boulevard Hotel, Floreat Park Primary School, and within easy reach of Bold Park, Perry Lakes, the CBD and private schools.
It is within the catchment area for Churchlands Senior High School.
