DO not let the exterior fool you, behind the charming cottage face lies a four-bedroom, two-bathroom family residence.
It was built in 1897 as part of the city’s first large-scale housing estate and has been carefully restored and improved.
Lovely period features remain, including high ceilings, wide jarrah floorboards and three working fireplaces.
The home’s living areas include a central living room where a drop-down ladder leads to a roof space that could be used for extra storage or another living area.
The layout flows through to the open-plan dining and kitchen area.
The kitchen has Miele and Bosch appliances and ample storage and bench space.
From here, the home opens to an alfresco area with a timber deck.
The backyard includes a low-maintenance lawn area and garden beds with ornamental pear trees.
There is even a double garage with mezzanine storage, accessed from a Wellman Street.
The home is on a 302sq m block in walking distance of Northbridge, the CBD and Hyde Park.
