SELLING agent Michelle Kerr said this Hamptons-style home captured all the grandeur of the era it was built in.
“Built in the late 1920s or early 1930s, the size and scale of the original rooms indicate it would have been quite the home in its day,” she said.
“It’s very striking from the road and quite unlike any other home in the area, and the elevated position further compounds its impressive facade.”
The three-bedroom, one-bathroom home has a host of beautiful period features and has been sympathetically restored and extended to suit a modern lifestyle.
The large formal living room overlooks the front lawns and Mrs Kerr said it was a wonderful place to sit and enjoy an afternoon coffee or glass of wine in the evening.
“High ceilings, white shutters and a roaring gas-fired heater make it the most amazing place to relax and chill out,” she said.
In summer, the front porch provides another place to sit and relax.
It is large enough to hold a generously sized outdoor lounge and has views over the surrounding area and golf course.
Towards the back of the home is a lovely open-plan living area with a family room, dining room and central kitchen.
Bi-fold doors in the dining area open to the alfresco area, making for seamless entertaining.
“The entertaining area and lawns are large enough for the biggest of parties and several marquees,” said Mrs Kerr. “Over the years it has played host to many special events for the families that have called it home.”
The 1012sq m block also includes a pool and pool-house.
Only a few blocks from the Nedlands Golf Course and Melvista Park, the home is in a enviable location, with the Swan River, schools, parks, shops and cinemas also within walking distance. n
