Behind a white picket fence and at the top of an arc of steps painted red, this California bungalow greets you with a classic semi-enclosed front porch – the perfect spot to sit gazing across the front lawn and contemplating your luck at calling such a gem ‘home’. Step inside to be greeted by the warmth of Jarrah floorboards and the elegance of original windows that bathe the interiors in natural light.
A formal lounge and main bedroom sit at the front of the plan; both benefit from south-facing windows and a wonderful sense of airiness thanks to high ceilings embellished with decorative cornices and ceiling roses. The spacious eat-in kitchen boasts ample timber cabinetry, an original Metters stove and a 900 mm Euromaid oven with 5-gas burners.
One junior bedroom sits off the kitchen/meals area, and the second occupies one end of the original verandah at the rear of the home. A bathroom and separate WC occupies the other end of the original verandah.
A large deck sheltered by a high gabled roof extends from the rear of the home to create an excellent outdoor living and entertaining zone. This private space is a delight, elevated with views across a classic Australian backyard and offering room for dining, seating and undercover play for kids and pets. Completing this storybook picture is a white fibro building housing a single garage and laundry.
Minutes from Midland, where rail links lead to the CBD and beyond, a short drive from the airport and on the doorstep of the Perth Hills, this Bellevue beauty is too good to ignore.
