Beauty of bygone era and the best of today
1930s charmer. By NATALIE HORDOV
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
