THE owner of this Jolimont unit has lived in the neighbourhood for 25 years and enjoys the tranquillity and “greenscapes” of Jolimont and Subiaco.
She also has a special love of the many older local houses that have been renovated and this has made her walks around this lovely area particularly interesting.
She bought this home in the St Ives Over 55s complex in the mid-2000s, liking the privacy, trees and its spacious feel inside and out.
The location was also an easy drive to her favourite shops at Subiaco and Floreat Forum and to the cafes and restaurants at City Beach and Floreat Beach.
The ground-floor home has an open-plan living/dining area and kitchen.
The living area opens to a paved area and shady courtyard with a storage shed and external access.
The owner liked the view from the west-facing window where she could see the courtyard, listen to the birds and enjoy the shade of the Morton Bay fig tree.
The home has two bedrooms and a combined bathroom/laundry.
The master has built-in robes.
The second bedroom is also linked to the living area and can be opened up to create more living space if desired.
The owner has enjoyed her time at St Ives, which includes a club room and residents’ vegetable garden.
She said the neighbours were friendly but not intrusive and the gardens were always beautifully maintained.
It gave her the same feeling of intimacy and privacy she had at her family home.
The home is in walking distance of several parks and while you can drive to nearby shops and medical facilities, you could also catch the bus from the stop right outside the complex.
