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. ■
