THIS home is not what it seems.
From the street it looks like a charming, character cottage complete will bullnose veranda, stained glass detailing around the front door and sash windows.
Step inside and you see a modern masterpiece.
The circa 1919 home was extensively renovated with an extension designed by Paul Wilson of Beilby Designs.
The front of the home includes four bedrooms and here you will find period features including ornate fireplaces and high ceilings with elaborate cornicing.
The master bedroom has a walk-through robe and wonderfully stylish Rogerseller ensuite with double vanity unit and bath.
There is a second bathroom, powder room and laundry in this part of the house.
The back of the home opens out to a spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen area with soaring ceilings and a solar passive design.
The kitchen will delight the family chef and has Caesarstone benchtops, glass splashback, Miele appliances and soft-closing drawers and cupboards.
A wall of timber and glass bi-fold doors open to an alfresco area with timber decking and built-in barbecue, creating a massive entertaining space.
It overlooks a tranquil floating garden designed by Janine Mendel from Cultivart Landscape Design.
The backyard also includes a two-storey studio/retreat with a bathroom and toilet on each level.
It would be ideal for guest accommodation, artistic pursuits, games room or man cave.
All of this on a 491sq m block, close to the Swan River, with walking and cycle path to East Perth, Banks Reserve and the new stadium.
The home is also minutes away from the shops and cafes in Mt Lawley, East Perth, Maylands and Perth.
