THE location of this classic Subiaco cottage won the owners over when they bought it 11 years ago.
They liked the quiet leafy street and proximity to Rokeby Road.
“We love being close to Kings Park and the restaurants and cafes,” they said.
“It’s also a very friendly and cohesive neighbourhood where neighbours all know each other by first names.”
The home was built in 1910 and retains plenty of the charm of the era, including a bullnose veranda, timber fretwork, high ceilings, jarrah flooring and functioning fireplaces.
The layout follows the Federation style with rooms opening off a central hallway.
These include the three bedrooms and a formal living room.
The house was renovated in 2002, with the back extended to let in more light, take advantage of the garden outlook and create a modern open-plan family/dining/kitchen area.
French doors open to the backyard with a paved entertaining area and elevated timber deck.
The garden is one of the owners’ favourite places.
They said it was surrounded by mature trees and felt like an oasis in the middle of a vibrant village.
The front porch also has a great view.
“It’s nice to sit and watch the world go by,” the owners said.
The back of the house also includes the sleek bathroom/laundry with corner bath.
The 349sq m block includes a carport, with storeroom, that is accessed from a rear right-of-way.
