THIS modern terrace home’s neat, slim exterior gives no hint about the space inside.
Built on a 164sq m block, it has 250sq m of floor space and the linear design has the main living areas wrapped around an internal courtyard.
From the sitting area near the entry, a hallway leads past the courtyard to the dining area and kitchen with Caesarstone benchtops and quality appliances.
The courtyard allows the home to receive plenty of natural light.
The owner said it was a quiet and private area to have a morning coffee and read the paper or entertain friends and family.
“A built-in barbecue and its proximity to the dining/kitchen area makes this a great entertaining area, combining inside and outside spaces via large patio doors,” they said.
Behind the kitchen is the laundry, powder room and access to the double garage.
An industrial-style steel and timber staircase leads up to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
The master is at the front of the home and includes an ensuite, built-in robe and its own balcony that receives the morning sun and has views of the Raphael streetscape.
The layout leads past a second bedroom with built-in robes, the main bathroom and the large third bedroom.
This room could also be used as another living space and opens to a terrace with Italian tiled flooring and shade sail, which the owner said had fantastic sunset views.
The home was built in 2000 and the owner bought it soon after, liking the unique design that they said blended tastefully with other properties in the street, the easy rear lane access to the garage and parking, and the location close to the CBD, transport, schools, Rokeby Road and Kings Park.
“It’s a great street with a good mix of architecture blending harmoniously and a quiet location close to the Rokeby Road shopping precinct and Subiaco school markets,” they said.
“The street has a majority of long-term residents who look out for each other and are friendly.”
