Well, well, well… this really is a family home for the ages! Set neatly on a premier North Perth street adorned with a stunning canopy of peppermint trees, a strong sense of community imbues the surrounds. Established and growing families alike will relish in all this wonderful property has to offer!
The immediate centrepiece of this appealing home is its enchanting front courtyard. Hidden behind the wrought iron vehicle and pedestrian gates, a secret garden awaits – featuring a manicured lawn, and wisteria, azalea, camellia and bay leaf trees. Recirculating water from a small fish pond provides soothing undertones, whilst polished black pebbles frame a distinctive stone-paved pathway to a wide verandah. This courtyard is simply something very special!
The Lawler Street elevation of the property features partially rendered brickwork and gorgeous leadlight casement windows. The front door has a clever lockable (sash-less) double hung window insert, which is frosted for privacy. Together with a multitude of casement and awning windows and 3m-plus ceiling heights, effective cross-ventilation is key to providing a comfortable living environment throughout the home. In addition, the wrought iron front gates match the patterning of the leadlight windows, thus enhancing the overall continuity of the façade.
Originally built circa. 1935, the character front section of the home offers beautiful Jarrah floorboards, picture rails, period ceiling roses, mouldings, and cornicing, and deep skirting boards. To one side of an off-centre passageway, a generous lounge room features a split system air conditioner, floating timber shelving and a bona fide fireplace. Two sliding doors with leadlight window inserts separate the lounge room from an adjoining dining room, with a lovely single swinging door (also with a leadlight insert) opening in to the passageway.
Splitting from the opposite side of the passageway are two bedrooms, a bathroom and a laundry. The large master bedroom (at the front of the home) features a modern cassette air conditioner and ornate ceiling mouldings. The minor bedroom has a customised quadruple built-in robe (BIR) with drawers, shelving and hanging spaces of various heights. This room also has in-built data points providing the option of converting the space in to a study. The bathroom is spacious and has a brand-new shower screen. The laundry is freshly painted and offers plenty of bench and storage space plus a security screen door with pet door in situ.
At the end of the front passageway, the rear extension of the home will effortlessly bring your family and friends together. From the Blackbutt timber flooring to the wonderful open plan kitchen, informal meals and family living room, the internal space blends seamlessly with an outdoor alfresco area lined with UrbanStone pavers and protected from the elements by a contemporary shade sale. Rose bushes, Golden Cane palms and a quaint little limestone garden bench complete the picture.
The kitchen features a reverse-cycle air conditioner, gas cook top, separate gas grill, twin sinks, electric oven, rangehood, stainless steel dishwasher, microwave hatch, double walk-in pantry and oodles of storage space. A substantial fish tank adds colour and flair, whilst a quadruple floor-to-ceiling linen press provides additional storage options for the whole family. This rear extension also includes two minor bedrooms (both with customised BIRs and ceiling fans), and a freshly-painted second bathroom with separate bath and separate W/C. One of these bedrooms also features data and T.V. antenna points.
Other features of this magnificent family home include recently-serviced and upgraded automatic bore reticulation, a large retractable projector screen, an instantaneous gas HWS, two outdoor speakers, secure parking, internal gas hob, three garden sheds, roofing insulation, rear R.O.W. access, window locks, and an alarm system with perimeter sensors.
