EASY family living best describes this home and its location according to the owners.
“It’s a quintessential Cottesloe location where you are on a street with wide verges, lined with Norfolk pines and a few minutes walk to North Cottesloe Beach, Cottesloe Civic Centre, tennis courts, North Cottesloe Surf Club, Eric Street shops and several cafes, and a 10-minute walk to school,” they said.
“In summer, we head to the beach most days and spend weekends between beach, parks, cafes and the tennis club.
“In winter we love hearing the waves from the beach and the wind coming through the Norfolk Island pines, it’s wonderful.”
The owners said the wide verges on Broome Street also provided great parking for visiting family and friends.
The home was built in the mid-to-late 1980s, with north-facing living areas and the ability to easily add a second storey if desired.
The owners bought it three years ago, liking the well-designed layout that they said was ideal for a family, with separate zones for parents and children and a central living area.
They renovated the home to create a more modern, light and comfortable space for family living and it has new flooring, fittings and paint.
A formal lounge and dining room are at the front of the home, near the master bedroom with built-in and walk-in robes, ensuite and external access.
The kitchen links to the dining room at one end and a meals area and the light-filled family room at the other.
“Our favourite spot in the home is the open-plan kitchen/dining/living areas,” the owners said.
“All are well exposed to the northern light, so we enjoy sunshine throughout the year.”
The family room opens to a private alfresco space with a lovely backdrop of greenery.
Three bedrooms with built-in robes and the main bathroom are at the back of the home.
Outside, the backyard has been terraced and includes established garden beds and a store room.
The owners said the home on a 683sq m block provided a range of opportunities for buyers.
“It offers comfortable living with opportunities to renovate further, plan a new build just 400m from the beach, or invest in an attractive rental property,” they said. “There are only so many houses close to the beach and with wide verges in Cottesloe, and supply of these well-held properties is low.”
