THE owners refer to this pretty-as-a-picture home as their beautiful grand dame; classy and supremely comfortable to live in.
The home on a 486sq m block certainly does have style and grace and a whole lot of charm, with character features such as polished timber flooring and stained glass windows sitting easily alongside modern conveniences.
Inside, an open-plan living area with a soaring pitched ceiling includes a custom-built kitchen with free-standing bench, Essastone benchtops, Miele appliances, Asko dishwasher and plenty of storage.
French doors open to a terrace and alfresco area with cedar-lined ceiling and the enchanting private garden where the owners have enjoyed many family barbecues.
A mezzanine level offers extra living or bedroom space, and leads to a dust-proofed, ventilated attic with lighting.
There are three generously sized bedrooms with lovely ornate ceilings, cornices and feature windows.
The master also has a fireplace, custom-built wardrobes and a large dressing room.
There are two striking, modern bathrooms; one has a separate shower and built-in laundry while the other features a large free-standing bath.
Outside, a double garage is accessed from a rear lane and includes a drop-down ladder leading to a mezzanine storage area.
The location is as attractive as the home, close to The Mezz, cafes, restaurants, shops, Mt Hawthorn Primary Schools and Braithwaite Park and it is only a 10-15 minute drive to the CBD.
