THIS is a house for all seasons.
In winter, curl up in front of the open fireplace with a good book; in summer enjoy entertaining outdoors and a dip in the spa pool.
Built in 1926, the home has a host of beautiful character features, including a bullnose veranda with chequerboard tiling, wide polished floorboards, decorative cornicing and ceiling roses.
The home has been extended in line with the original features.
The four bedrooms, all with built-in robes, are at the front of the house.
The owners said the huge master bedroom, with ensuite, was one of their favourite rooms in the house.
The leafy garden aspect viewed through the floor-to-ceiling windows made them feel they were in a country estate.
The living areas, including the lounge and family rooms and large kitchen/dining area, second bathroom and laundry, are at the back of the home. There is also a study nook, with a built-in desk and a spiral staircase leading to a loft.
The home is on a huge 1038sq m block, with a wide 26m frontage.
The location is excellent and the owners said the home was close to everything.
“QEII Medical Centre, Hollywood Private Hospital, Hollywood Primary School, Shenton College, the shops on Hampden Road, UWA, bus routes, Kings Park, the city and more are all nearby,” they said. n
