CLASSY CHARACTER– ABSOLUTELY CHARMING!
“Pretty as a picture” is the thought that strikes you as soon as you gaze at the period façade with its combination of tuck-pointed red brick, white picket fences and high-pitched roof and when combined with the award-winning entertaining front courtyard, you really will feel that this delightful abode is the place you can call home.
Upon entering through the front door, the charm of yesteryear welcomes you with polished jarrah floor boards, high ceilings and colonial windows which are beautifully complemented by the white plantation window shutters. All who enter will appreciate the super-large open plan living area, allowing you the opportunity to be flexible with the choice and placement of your favourite furniture pieces. Steal some inspiration from the current owner who has delighted in tastefully decorating the home during her years there and combine this with your own creativity to let your new home evolve into a showcase of your individual personality.
Your “inner-chef” will be well served by the neat kitchen which overlooks the family room and enjoys gas cooking with double sink bowl, tiled splashback, ample cupboard space and sits adjacent to the tidy laundry which is well concealed behind stylish wood panelled double doors.
You will be impressed by the well-sized master suite with a built-in triple robe, reverse cycle air conditioning as well as ceiling fan and is adjoined by the stylish ensuite bathroom with ceiling height decorative tiles and glass framed shower. The bedroom also offers access through double colonial doors to a small but quaint rear courtyard with adjoining storeroom.
Completing the home is the attractive entertaining front courtyard well adorned with greenery and pleasing glimpses to the nearby Beatty Park oval. This stylish retreat, which previously won a council award for the most attractive courtyard in the precinct, is protected by a quality retractable awning, inviting the simple pleasures of enjoying a glass of wine and a good book or laughter and conversation with friends at any time of the year.
The area enjoys a walk score of 88/100 and It would be hard to imagine a better location being only a short walk to the hub of the Leederville nightlife and café and shopping district, the popular West End Deli around the corner, the Beatty Park Aquatic Centre and the trendy North Perth Angove Street café strip only a little further away. Transport options are also plentiful with stops for the free Cat Bus in Leederville as well as a variety of buses on the nearby major roads and the Leederville train station only a short walk away as well as nearby freeway access.
The home not only oozes charisma and charm, but for anyone with the home makeover bug, it may also offer the potential for a future second storey addition with the inclusion of high gabled windows blended into the current high pitched roof to add another bedroom or living space.
The home provides security with the security screen door and internal alarm system. It is ideally positioned at the front of the property as half of this original period home, which was divided into two front strata properties and three rear townhouses added to the rear to form this boutique strata complex of only 5 homes.
