WHEN you think of East Perth, the redevelopment with its townhouses and apartments often comes to mind, but there are still some character gems waiting to be found.
Hidden behind a high fence, this renovated and extended 1920s home has plenty of wonderful surprises in store.
The landscaped front yard has a decked walkway leading to the entry.
Timber flooring is a key feature in the original part of the home, which includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, laundry, a toilet and a storeroom.
Steps lead down to a huge open-plan living/dining/kitchen area with rustic slate flooring, vaulted ceilings and a charming gas heater.
The kitchen has a trendy cafe vibe with stainless-steel benchtops and colourful cabinetry.
Entertaining will be a pleasure in the Tuscan-|inspired courtyard with lawn, paving and a decked sitting area.
The 491 sq m block also includes a pool.
Other features include reverse-cycle airconditioning in the living zone, ducted evaporative airconditioning in the bedrooms, alarm and a single garage with extra room for storage,
The home is a five-minute walk from the river and walking and bike paths leading to the soon-to-be-opened bridge to Optus Stadium.
