The transformation of what was a simple property into a chic family home is an impressive achievement. The current owners of this 3 bedroom brick and iron residence have created a home where original features shine and carefully considered remodelling brings modern practicality.
Instantly declaring its credentials as a classic 1960s structure, the home sits behind a wide lawn with a grey concrete verandah highlighting an iconic white diamond-shaped balustrade. The front door opens to reveal rich, jewel-toned original Jarrah floors. The main bedroom sits to one side of the entrance and to the other the open plan lounge and dining leads to the fantastic modern kitchen.
The open plan family, dining area sits at the front of the property with original windows and doors opening to the shady front verandah. This spacious room allows for various configurations, and a choice of vantage points from which to enjoy city glimpses. High ceilings with original cornicing and a slow combustion fire fitted to the original fireplace create a perfect context for modern décor.
The spectacular kitchen boasts a stunning commercial cabinet fit out and delivers the passionate cook a 900mm electric oven, 6-burner gas hob and dishwasher. Semi-gloss cabinetry and a swathe of white-tiled splash back frame perfectly the expanse of 950mm-high benchtop with built in breakfast bar. Soft, blue-grey walls and crisp white cornices, door and window frames illustrate the wisdom of adhering to a limited colour palette by ensuring the open plan living and kitchen link seamlessly with the traditionally proportioned rooms.
Two large bedrooms sit towards the front of the home, both with ample storage thanks to mirror-front wardrobes. The main bedroom enjoys views through the deep-silled windows to a screen of colourful plantings. A smaller third bedroom sits toward the back of the home, a perfectly formed nursery or young child’s room, this space could also be utilised as a home office or study.
In the beautifully renovated family bathroom, the large shower, bathtub and modern vanity epitomise chic functionality thanks to the extensive use of white subway tiles. An equally stunning walk-through laundry with painted concrete floors, long bench and generous under bench storage leads to a separate W.C.
In what can only be described as a classic Australian backyard, the covered patio provides an ideal alfresco entertaining area, while the lush lawn and cute cubby give the kids plenty of room for creative play. A Colorbond shed is situated toward the back of the property with side access provided.
An impeccable renovation, modern, stylish finishes and an elevated position in a friendly neighbourhood make it impossible not to fall in love with this absolutely gorgeous home. Spacious living both indoors and out, ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning and a paved driveway leading to a 2-car carport set the standard for easy-living. Within easy reach of arterial roads, the amenities and services of Midland and the outdoor adventures of the Heritage Trail, the delights of the Perth Hills and the Swan Valley are at your doorstep.
