REMINISCENT of an English estate, this 905sq m property has a hedge-lined driveway, manicured lawns and rows of ornamental trees.

Interestingly, it does sit on part of an original estate owned by George Leake, Charles Crossland and Alexander Forrest.

The two-storey home has a quiet elegance and selling agent Jody Fewster said it was handsome and nostalgic on the outside and fully renovated and ultra-chic on the inside.

An open-plan living area, with a stylish kitchen, on the ground floor opens to the back yard and alfresco area.

A raised platform provides another area to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet or entertain.

The owner said the home had played host to summer barbecues, Christmas garden parties and Melbourne Cup lunches.

They bought the low-maintenance home three years ago liking the green spaces, privacy, and convenient location.

“All the rooms have a pleasant, private, green outlook,” they said.

“And the upstairs living area has views east to the Swan River, trees, sky and Dalkeith.”

The three bedrooms are generously sized and some open to a balcony overlooking the back yard.

The home is just five houses away from the foreshore and close to several of Perth’s tops schools.

It is a short drive to Cottesloe Beach and you can walk to Cottesloe Central shopping centre and the shops and cafes on Napoleon Street.

The owner has two adult children and said the home worked well due to its large rooms, ensuites, upstairs and downstairs living areas, large garden for entertaining, and plenty of parking spaces.
