FROM the blue and white tiling on the risers of the front stairs through to fireplaces with ornate timber mantels, this house is brimming with character.
Renovated and extended over the years, it retains plenty of period features including timber flooring, high ceilings, detailed cornicing, picture rails and leadlight windows.
There are three bedrooms and a living room in the original part of the home.
At the back another living area leads to the updated kitchen and tiled family/dining area with a fireplace with brick surround.
This part of the home also includes the thoroughly modern bathroom with bath and shower and a European-style laundry.
Outside, a veranda wraps around the back of the home and there is an paved alfresco/sitting area.
Steps lead to another delightful space with garden beds and a studio.
The home is on a 420sq m block set back from the hustle and bustle of Curtin Avenue and close to beachside Cottesloe and the Napoleon Street precinct.
Access via a rear right-of-way provides potential parking options.
