BUILT in the 1930s, this home is in the heritage area of old Subiaco and surrounded by other character homes.
While renovated and extended over the years, it retains an abundance of period features, including a beautiful facade, timber floorboards, high ceilings and ornate fireplaces with tiled hearths and surrounds and timber mantels.
The owner said the home had a wonderful feel.
The living areas are linked but can be closed off from one another if needed.
A lounge room with a fireplace and built-in bookcase has bi-fold doors to a dining area, where steps lead down to another living space and the kitchen.
Warm-toned timber features throughout the living areas, with timber-framed doors and windows and timber benchtops with marble inserts and timber cabinetry in the kitchen.
French doors open to a covered, limestone-paved entertaining area with cafe blinds.
The gardens are a delight and the owner said they could be viewed from the centre of the house, where the family usually have their meals.
The front garden includes mature plants and creepers, lawn and limestone paving leading to the home’s tiled veranda.
Out the back, there is a European-inspired garden with fountain, manchurian pear trees and star jasmine.
There are three bedrooms at the front of the home and one bathroom which, in keeping with the heritage nature of the home, has a clawfoot bath and pedestal basin, along with a shower and toilet.
A separate powder room is located off the laundry.
Other features include a large underfloor storage area, ducted reverse-cycle airconditioning and on-street parking available with permits from the City of Subiaco.
The owner said the home, on a 359sq m block, was in a great location within walking distance of Rokeby Road shops and restaurants, opposite Subiaco Primary School and close to Farmer Jacks and the train line.
“It is also close to the library and theatre gardens, where you can enjoy regular shows at the Subiaco Arts Centre,” he said.
“It is easy to ride and run in King’s Park and less than five minutes from Perth city.”
The owners have a growing family of six and have moved to a larger home in the same area.
