AT Residential West we often hear owners say it was love at first sight when they bought their home and this property on a 435sq m block is one of those that is sure to win your heart.
You cannot fail to be moved by the charming cottage exterior, complete with veranda with lacework, leadlight front door and pretty gardens.
The brick-and-iron house was built circa 1900 and the original part of the home includes four bedrooms, three with built-in robes and fireplaces, and a central arched hallway.
Picture rails, ornate ceilings, timber flooring and stained glass are lovely period features, while wallpaper and plantation shutters add a complementary modern touch.
An extension has created a light and bright open-plan living area with a wood-fired heater and chic kitchen with an island bench with breakfast bar, Caesarstone benchtops and Bosch appliances.
The bathroom opens off this space and has Mediterranean-blue floor tiling and grey toned mosaic wall feature tiles, a claw-foot bath and double vanity unit.
If you have not already felt the first stirrings of a new romance, the backyard will set your heart aflutter.
The living area opens to a gorgeous terrace with timber decking, garden bed, remote-controlled Vergola louvres and a ceiling fan.
On its own it would be a lovely place to dine alfresco, but the view over the heated pool with water feature adds to the visual appeal.
The terrace also opens to the double garage, which is accessed from a rear right-of-way.
This also has some special features, including a toilet and shower.
The location holds as much appeal as the home, close to West Perth, Kings Park, shops, cafes and restaurants, parks, public transport, including the free CAT bus, and with easy access to UWA, the river and city.
