CHARACTER CHARM IN A CENTRAL LOCATION
Home Open Saturday 17 October 2:20 - 3:00PM
Behind the white picket fence of this circa 1901 home lies a sophisticated, architect designed addition, making it perfect for modern living. The design harmoniously links the original part of the home with a contemporary extension, creating the perfect blend of old and new.
Located within walking distance of Claremont Park, College Park, the river and public transport, the single level home will appeal to singles, couples, small families and down sizers.
The home has lovely period features including a wide timber veranda, soaring ceilings, jarrah floorboards and timber window frames.
The original part of the home consists of four queen size bedrooms including the master suite, which has a walk in robe and a well appointed ensuite with marble bench tops. There is a second bathroom with a bath, shower and toilet. Two of the three minor bedrooms have built in wardrobes. All of the bedrooms have recently had ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning installed and there are also ceiling fans in three of the bedrooms.
Walking through the home from front to back, the traditional aspects gradually recede into the striking and highly functional contemporary addition. The use of large white floor tiles in the new part of the home contrast with the jarrah floorboards in the original section and give each area its own identity.
The extension encompasses the kitchen, spacious family/dining room, sitting room and a laundry that doubles as a scullery. This area has been designed to take maximum advantage of the abundant northern light. Full width bifold glass doors can be pushed back to create a huge indoor/outdoor space, making this area perfect for all forms of entertainment.
The kitchen features a black mosaic tiled splash back, white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and white stone bench tops. Additional bench space and storage for overflow kitchen items has been incorporated into the scullery behind the kitchen.
The sitting room has been cleverly separated from the family room and provides a private space for watching television or relaxing with a book. It would also make a great play room for families with younger children. This room opens onto a timber decked, undercover alfresco entertaining area overlooking north facing, landscaped gardens lined with deciduous ornamental pear trees.
The home is close to public transport, premium primary and secondary schools, medical facilities, gym, the popular Bay Road Pantry and is a short drive to the Claremont Quarter.
Other highlights include:
* Secure double carport
* Newly installed ducted reverse cycle airconditioning
* White timber shutters
* Low maintenance lawns
