Fed­er­a­tion home one to ap­pre­ci­ate

Art Deco a last­ing legacy. By NATALIE HORDOV

SELL­ING agent Niki Peinke said clas­sic cars go up in value as the years go by and the same can be said for clas­sic Su­bi­aco homes.

“Things that can’t be re­placed be­come rarer and hence more valu­able,” she said.

“This pretty home is a prime ex­am­ple.”

The Fed­er­a­tion home has all the ap­peal of homes of that era, with a de­light­ful fa­cade, solid struc­ture and gen­er­ously sized rooms.

Ms Peinke said it was built to last. Gor­geous char­ac­ter fea­tures in­clude jar­rah floor­ing, Art Deco lead­light en­try, sash win­dows, open log fire, high ceil­ings, Vic­to­rian cor­nices and pic­ture rails.

The home has a large lounge room with a bay win­dow over­look­ing the lush front gar­den, din­ing room, in­for­mal liv­ing area that opens to the cov­ered al­fresco area and ren­o­vated kitchen with Cae­sar­stone bench­tops, white matte cab­i­netry and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.

There are three bed­rooms and two bath­rooms.

The large master has a walk-in robe and en­suite.

The two re­main­ing bed­rooms are at the back of the home and both open to the al­fresco area.

The back­yard in­cludes a pond, shed and ma­ture trees and plants.

Ms Peinke said the home had al­ready had a makeover with mod­ernised kitchen and bath­rooms and a choice of two liv­ing ar­eas, but there was the po­ten­tial to ex­tend fur­ther if re­quired.

It is on a 491sq m block close to trans­port and a short walk from cafes and shops on Ni­chol­son, Onslow and Rokeby roads. ■
