Description

Location, location, location. Opposite a park, in the sought-after suburb of St James, minutes from the restaurants of East Victoria Park and an easy commute to Curtin University and the Perth CBD. A textbook example of a renovators’ delight, the 1958-built home sits on a level 739 sqm block and has seen better days.

  • 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms
  • 1958-built brick and tile
  • Open plan living in front
  • Original kitchen and bath
  • Jarrah floors high ceilings
  • Single garage + workshop
  • Underground power in St
  • New fencing on three sides
  • 739 sqm block opp park
  • Walk to dinner East Vic Park

Creative vision and hard work are needed to restore this home, but high ceilings, decorative cornices and jarrah floorboards give you a great starting point. The original floorplan is arranged with a wide living zone across the front with large south-facing windows onto the park opposite.  A central kitchen with access to the backyard, is little changed and desperate for a makeover, as are both bathrooms.

There is ample scope here to create an impressive home with delightful original features. Perhaps a more straight forward option is to begin again from the ground up making the most of this sought-after location and building a modern home with a leafy outlook, excellent access to restaurants, Curtin University and the Perth CBD.
