THERE is more than a touch of old-world glamour about this renovated two-storey home.
Step through the front gate and walk down the limestone path, past manicured hedges to the elegant residence with tuckpointed facade and entry with leadlight features.
Inside, beautiful character features abound, including timber flooring, high ceilings with ceiling roses and ornate cornices, and fireplaces with tiled surrounds and timber mantels.
The needs of modern living have not been overlooked: along with formal lounge and dining rooms there is an open-plan living/dining area with a kitchen with Caesarstone and granite benchtops and island bench.
The informal living zone opens to a huge covered alfresco area with built-in kitchen overlooking a pool, complete with sitting area and outdoor bathroom.
There are master bedrooms on both floors.
One on the first floor is part of the parents’ domain with a bathroom, study, nursery and balcony.
The large downstairs master has a walk-in robe and ensuite.
There are three more bedrooms and another bathroom.
The home is on a 718sq m block that includes a double garage that is accessed from a rear right-of-way and is close to the Mt Lawley cafe precinct, several schools, parks and a short drive, bus trip or even walk from the CBD.
