Elevated behind a private lawn and a perfumed garden, the deep front porch of this 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom California bungalow is the perfect place to enjoy evenings surrounded by the scent of magnolia and watching lights twinkle in the distance.
The magic of this flawlessly renovated bungalow continues inside. High ceilings, polished jarrah floors and original cornices and ceiling roses retain a connection to the property’s origins, while the restrained and clever choice of colours and finishes delivers a modern, functional and comfortable home for the 21st century.
Inside the front door, a formal loungeroom features architectural leadlight windows and a large open fireplace with painted brick surround. Bright and welcoming the room is a balanced blend of formal and relaxed styling.
The main bedroom sits opposite the lounge and again the beautiful leadlight windows are a feature. The bright and spacious room benefits from the addition of a double built-in robe – with fitted shelving and drawers – and reverse cycle A/C.
Pretty double doors open through to the kitchen / dining area. Internal windows in the dining area open up views through to back of the home. The kitchen features the original brick oven surround with a high mantel. Now housing a 900mm Bellisimo oven, the impressive feature grounds the kitchen and blends seamlessly with the updated cabinetry and benchtops.
Behind the dining area a small sitting room adjoins a junior bedroom. Used by the current owner as a chill-out space, this arrangement of bedroom and sitting room forms a ready-made guest wing. The area could also be utilised as a playroom or study.
A double-sized junior bedroom, featuring dado walls, is a luminous retreat. High ceilings, light colours and the gleaming jarrah floors are stylish and unfussy.
The gorgeous family bathroom, with a large corner shower, W.C. and vanity, demonstrates a perfect balance between staying true to the home’s origins and modern functionality – a skill evident throughout the property. The fully renovated room features white tiles reaching to above window height and complimented with black feature tiles.
French doors at the rear of the property open to a 5 m x 7 m, paved entertaining area. Covered by a pitched roof, this alfresco area sits high on the lot and is the perfect spot from which to enjoy the breeze on a summer day. A ceiling fan and water feature build on the atmosphere of a restful oasis as does the lawn edged with gardenia.
A 6 m x 7 m Colorbond shed – accessed via a paved driveway along the side of the home – sits at the top of the fully-fenced backyard. Ideal for use as a workshop or studio, the current owner has utilized the powered and fully lined structure as temporary accommodation. Extra clearance and ample paved space at the front of the shed ensure this is a practical multi-purpose space.
Renovated with care and skill, this California bungalow boasts an address that delivers the best of the Perth Hills and easy access to the services and amenities of town. Great schools, open spaces and easy links to arterial roads and the airport describe the story of a home that is perfectly placed, perfectly renovated and perfectly pretty.
