There’s everything to love about this charming home on a 1103sqm corner block in Gledhow.
The property is as neat as a pin inside and out, and has been well maintained and modernised without sacrificing its outstanding 1950s features.
Original jarrah floors throughout, high ceilings and timber window frames add to its appeal, and the home is beautifully sunny and bright inside.
It is comfortable, immaculately clean and in excellent condition — entirely practical for modern family living.
At the front is the generous lounge with a wood fire in a feature fireplace and an impressive leadlight door separating it from the big kitchen/dining room at the rear.
With attractive cabinetry, gas cooking and space for a family-sized dining table, this is a light, well-appointed room.
Windows, a skylight and French doors at the back make this a pleasant room for meals, though family members might want to spill out onto the covered, paved patio for lazy weekend brunches or relaxing barbecues.
The main bedroom is a king-sized room, and the other two are a good queen and double size, while the sparkling white bathroom nearby contains a bath, shower, vanity and toilet.
Air-conditioning in the dining area, neutral decor and practical window blinds also feature
Built of fibro and tile, the house sits amid well-tended lawns with a few garden beds and native trees.
A veranda shelters the front door and makes a pleasant outdoor seating area.
There’s a carport at the side of the house and plenty of off-road space for parking and turning vehicles. There’s also a very handy 6m x 6m shed in the back yard, which is mostly in lawn and fully fenced.
Gledhow’s big blocks and leafy streets give it a semi-rural feel although it is within easy reach of schools, TAFE, supermarkets and Albany’s town centre.
This Balston Road property is currently leased at $320 a week.
