Quintessential 1920’s Cottage
This charming single-level character property sits pretty on a quiet, leafy street in Nedlands. It not only provides a fantastic living space, but more importantly, it has a lovely homely feel.
The cottage-style frontage with established gardens and brick pathways is the perfect welcome. Full of 1920’s features and a flexible layout of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, lounge and open-plan kitchen/living area to the rear, this property combines old and new beautifully.
As you step inside the front door, you are greeted with a wide hallway, high ceilings, timber window frames, jarrah floorboards and ornate ceiling features. Although the layout is flexible, this property currently has a cosy, peaceful lounge, overlooking the cottage-style front garden.
Bedrooms 2, 3 & 4 are of a similar size, all with high ceilings and jarrah floorboards. The main bedroom is positioned in the centre of the house, opposite the recently refurbished family bathroom, which has both a bath and shower.
To the rear, you’ll find an open-plan kitchen/living area. The kitchen is well-appointed, with a breakfast bar and plenty of storage space overlooking the living and dining areas. Two sets of french doors lead out to a private and well-established rear garden. Here you will find a little haven of peace where you can relax under the north-facing pergola covered by a magnificent Wisteria. There is also a large shed (with power) at the bottom of the garden, a small vegetable patch and herb garden, plus fruit trees for the gardening enthusiasts of the household.
The laundry and second bathroom provides plenty of utility space with the added convenience of a separate toilet and small shower area.
Overall, you have the nostalgia of a period feature property, modernised to provide a flexible layout of four bedrooms, two bathrooms and two living areas, surrounded by mature gardens on a level 696m2 block. It sits high along a peaceful, leafy road in Nedlands, close to many schools, restaurants and public transport.
