Beauty of by­gone era and the best of to­day

1930s charmer. By NATALIE HORDOV

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Liftout: Reviews -

THIS ren­o­vated, circa-1930s home lets you have the best of both worlds: it has all the charm of yesteryear com­bined with a ver­sa­tile, mod­ern de­sign.

On a 741sq m cor­ner block, it presents a pretty pic­ture, tucked be­hind a white picket fence and set among ma­ture gar­dens.

A ve­randa with col­umns wraps around one cor­ner of the build­ing and would be a de­light­ful place to sit with a cof­fee and good book.

In­side, the home has gleam­ing tim­ber floor­ing, neu­tral decor and char­ac­ter fea­tures in­clud­ing fire­places, tim­ber fret­work, high ceil­ings, or­nate cor­nices and lead­light de­tail­ing in the front door.

The lay­out al­lows the res­i­dence to adapt to a fam­ily's chang­ing needs.

If you have chil­dren you have the op­tion of five bed­rooms, or four bed­rooms and a study.

When they move out, you can change this to three bed­rooms, study and a for­mal lounge.

Whether you have chil­dren liv­ing at home or not, you will ap­pre­ci­ate the spa­cious mas­ter bed­room with en­suite, walk-in robe and fire­place.

There is also a fam­ily bath­room and pow­der room.

The home’s lay­out flows through to a huge open-plan liv­ing/kitchen/din­ing area.

The kitchen is a wellfin­ished de­light with a break­fast bar, Cae­sar­stone bench­tops, pull-out pantry and qual­ity ap­pli­ances.

The din­ing zone has wood­grain cab­i­netry, Miele cof­fee ma­chine and steam oven.

French doors open to a tran­quil and pri­vate cov­ered al­fresco area.

There is plenty of park­ing with a dou­ble garage, hard­stand for a trailer and ex­tra off-street park­ing for two cars.

Other fea­tures in­clude ducted re­verse-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing, se­cure elec­tric gate and alarm sys­tem, and a bore for wa­ter­ing the gar­dens.

The prop­erty is con­ve­niently lo­cated: it is a short walk to Broad­way and UWA and a 15-minute walk to Kings Park and Matilda Bay.

Med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als will ap­pre­ci­ate the prox­im­ity to hos­pi­tals and it is just a 5.5km com­mute to the CBD. ■ 4 2 2
