WHEN you think of character homes, Mt Lawley and Inglewood often spring to mind, but North Perth also has many lovely older residences.
This turn-of-the century home has a delightful character facade, while the renovated interior is a gorgeous blend of period features and contemporary design.
Under the bullnose veranda, a leadlight front door opens to a central hallway that leads you past three large bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The lovely master bedroom has a restful feeling and includes a large walk-in robe and modern ensuite with garden outlook.
From the hallway, the home opens to the open-plan living/dining/kitchen area.
The stylish white kitchen has ample storage, an island bench with a breakfast bar and integrated Liebherr fridges.
The living zone opens to a shaded timber deck, where you can enjoy a casual meal or coffee.
If you want to entertain on a larger scale, bifold doors in the dining area open out to an alfresco area, with built-in kitchen and cedar-lined ceiling, allowing for seamless indoor/ outdoor entertaining.
From chandeliers to the striking red tiles in the main bathroom, the home is full of lovely surprises, and if you follow the timber boardwalk from the alfresco area you will find another – a studio that is ideal for a home office, teenager’s retreat or artistic pursuits.
The 506sqm block also includes a grassed area, shed and a paved car bay.
