Substantial Character Home

Originally built in 1936, this elegant property still retains all of the original features that enhance the charm and warmth of this delightful family home.

Set on an 809m2 block, this property has been lovingly restored and extended by the current owners and offers both the needs for a modern family plus a touch of nostalgia.

From the moment you walk through the double front doors, you glimpse the history that forms the character of this home. From the polished jarrah floorboards to the original ornate ceilings, there are literally features from floor to ceiling!

From the entrance hallway, you are able to access both the main bedroom and formal lounge. The main bedroom is positioned at the furthest point from the kitchen/family area and has built-in robes and its own ensuite. The formal lounge is also front aspect, and upon opening the double doors, the first thing that strikes you is the impressive ornate ceiling and Oregon framed windows. This room has a cosy feel to it, helped by the built-in gas fireplace. Double doors lead through to the formal dining room, which again, is steeped in features and is large enough to accommodate a ten-seat dining table. Two further bedrooms and the family bathroom can also be found within the footprint of the original house.

Walk down a few steps and you enter the extended part of the house. The extension was completed in 2003 and has more than doubled the size of the property. This area is the heart of the home and provides the needs of the modern-day family with an open-plan kitchen and living area, bathed in natural light courtesy of the wall of windows and glazed patio doors that runs the length of the 12m room. The laundry room, a large study and a fourth bedroom with walk-in robe are also part of the new footprint. There are three sets of patio doors that lead you through to the rear garden, which is beautifully kept, and is sure to be a lovely tranquil place to spend a summer evening. The alfresco area is covered and lit and large enough to accommodate a large dining table with chairs.

There’s also a separate studio with a bedroom, shower and toilet.

This property has been lovingly restored and extended to a very high standard. With high ornate ceilings, jarrah floorboards and doors, combined with the large open-plan kitchen/living area, you have a wonderful mix of both old and new.

Located within 5 kilometres of both Cottesloe Beach and the CBD (950 bus route every 10 minutes), it’s ideally positioned for both work and play. Closer to home you’ll find Matilda Bay, UWA, Nedlands Golf Course, Kings Park, Loreto Primary School and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital all within a kilometre.

Features include:
• Major extension and renovation in 2003
• Renovated original interior woodwork, including floorboards, doors and skirting boards
• 3.2m high ceilings throughout
• Fully reticulated gardens with fruit trees
• Both gas and wood fireplaces
