COTTESLOE was established in the late 1800s and while it is now known for its million dollar mansions there are still charming character homes that provide a nod to the past.
Set behind a picket fence, this home has a Federation facade with a traditional return veranda, red brick work, green gables and a stained-glass front door.
Inside there are plenty of original features including high ceilings, wide timber floorboards, grand cornices, picture rails and three cast-iron fireplaces with carved timber surrounds.
The master bedroom with built-in robes and fireplace is at the front of the home.
The layout leads through a lounge room, with fireplace and access to the veranda, past a second bedroom with fireplace, to a short hallway and the third bedroom and second lounge room, to the kitchen/dining area with timber cabinetry and a servery window to the alfresco area.
The second lounge room has leadlight doors that open to the kitchen/dining room allowing you to link the rooms if desired or have a separate living area.
The bathroom is located off the dining zone.
The home is on a 506sq m block and the backyard includes a sunken, paved alfresco area and pond and a new outdoor kitchen with built-in barbecue, sink, fridge and commercial grade extractor.
A path leads up past lawned areas and an old gum tree to the double garage, which is accessed from George Street.
The beach initially drew people to the area and this home is a 10-minute walk from Cottesloe Beach.
It is also a short walk to the Mosman Park train station, Glyde Street dining precinct, and Cottesloe Primary School.
The property is in the Shenton College catchment and there are several other excellent schools close by.
