MT Lawley is well known for its stately character homes but neighbouring Highgate has some beauties too.
This home was built in the early 1900s and is a prime example of the Queen Anne style.
The facade has lovely tuck-pointed flemish bond brickwork, a veranda with turned posts, tall chimneys and a gorgeous leadlight front door.
There are period features throughout, including jarrah flooring, high ceilings, ornate cornices and a wide hallway.
The lounge room has a pressed tin ceiling, fireplace with timber mantle and a bay window with double-hung windows.
Many of the rooms have fireplaces, including the three bedrooms and one of the bathrooms – this one also includes a spa bath, while the other has a claw-foot bath. A roomy kitchen and dining area is at the back of the home.
The kitchen has been designed in keeping with the character of the home and includes a copper sink and taps.
It also has an island bench, plenty of storage and stone benchtops.
French doors in the dining room open to the pool area.
While the home exudes character it also has plenty of modern conveniences, including reverse-cycle ducted airconditioning, parking for two cars behind electronic gates and a security system.
It is set on two blocks for a total land size of 651sq m and is opposite beautiful Hyde Park and a short walk from the cafes, restaurants and shops along Beaufort Street.
