AT first glance you might think this just a charming character home.
Its lovely period facade certainly gives that initial impression, but step inside and you will see it is ideally suited to a modern family lifestyle.
Built in the 1930s, it has been beautifully renovated and extended and the array of rooms offers great versatility.
For example, a larger family can choose to have six bedrooms, while a smaller family might want to use a bedroom for guests and another as a study or activity room.
Parents will certainly enjoy their master suite with huge walk-in robe, striking ensuite with freestanding bath, and access to the backyard.
The home has a formal lounge that retains the glamour of yesteryear with jarrah flooring, ornate ceiling, picture rails and leadlight windows.
The layout also includes a light-filled spacious open-plan living area with feature Horizon fireplace, brushbox timber flooring and an elegant kitchen with scullery, Miele appliances and Bianco Carrara marble benchtops.
Doors open to an alfresco area with a built-in barbecue where you can enjoy a family barbecue or entertain on a larger scale.
The pool, with cabana and powder room, will be a summer highlight and the kids can play to their hearts’ content in the generously-sized garden.
The location is also incredibly appealing and has everything on hand to raise a young family to adulthood.
The home is on a 1012sq m block in walking distance of parks and the river, close to schools, Claremont Quarter and UWA.
