VERANDAS wrap around the front and sides of this gracious old home providing many places to sit and look over the pretty gardens.
The original part of the home was built circa 1901 and while there have been a few additions and changes over the years, many beautiful character features remain.
There are lovely high ceilings, polished jarrah floorboards and fireplaces.
The open-plan kitchen kitchen/dining/area is one of the later additions and the owner said it is her favourite place in the house.
“Somehow we always end up in the kitchen – it’s a great place for entertaining,” she said.
This area opens to a deck at the back of the home.
There is also a formal dining room and lounge room and the owner said every room has a different view.
She loves looking out of the main bedroom’s windows into the garden and the red roses.
The main bedroom includes an ensuite and opens to a veranda.
There are three more large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study.
According to Heritage Council records 19 Perth Street was owned by the Loveland family in 1905 and Nurse Loveland and her daughter Naomi used four rooms of the house as a hospital.
The owner believed many babies were born within the home.
It may also have been used boarding house.
The home is in a wonderful location.
It is a short walk to the Cottesloe Village, Grove Library, Cottesloe Central, Cottesloe train station, North Cottesloe Primary School and Cottesloe Beach.
On a landholding of 557sq m, the home sits over two titles.
The adjoining 279sq m block can be purchased separately to give a large 836sq m landholding.
