Open in­vi­ta­tion to live on fam­ily-friendly street

Coun­try feel in in­ner-city sub­urb. By NATALIE HOR­DOV

IT is time for a new fam­ily to move into this de­light­ful char­ac­ter home and cre­ate some won­der­ful mem­o­ries to­gether.

The own­ers bought the prop­erty 19 years ago and their chil­dren grew to adult­hood in the cosy, Fed­er­a­tion-style home.

“It has been the per­fect fam­ily home; lots of liv­ing has hap­pened here,” they said.

“We've trans­formed the gar­den count­less times as the chil­dren grew up, and painted the house hues of yel­low as a fam­ily ac­tiv­ity.”

The own­ers said the lo­ca­tion was at­trac­tive and sought-af­ter, close to parks, schools, shop­ping strips and lo­cal trans­port.

“Gloster Street is great for fam­i­lies,” they said. “Our chil­dren al­ways had friends the same age liv­ing on the street, or around the cor­ner.

“Kids kick­ing a soccer ball or a foot­ball was an ev­ery­day sight af­ter school.”

The home has three bed­rooms, one bath­room, a sep­a­rate liv­ing room, study and open-plan kitchen/fam­ily/din­ing area that opens to the out­doors.

“Our favourite room would be the din­ing room, as it is the cen­tre of the home and was also the room we spent the most time in as a fam­ily,” the own­ers said.

“It cre­ates the per­fect link be­tween the kitchen and the gar­den out­side, with only floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows sep­a­rat­ing the space, and has the best view in the house, as the af­ter­noon sun starts com­ing through the trees into the gar­den.

“We also like the liv­ing room, which could be closed off; this was ideal, as the TV could still be watched in peace while other fam­ily mem­bers cooked or lis­tened to mu­sic in the kitchen/din­ing room.”

The home is on a 522sq m block and the gar­dens in­clude an en­ter­tain­ing area and veg­etable gar­den.

“The front and back yards are large and spa­cious with a coun­try feel within the in­ner-city sub­urb of Su­bi­aco, a unique fea­ture amongst an ever-grow­ing trend to­wards mod­ernism,” the own­ers said. ■
