WITH its geometric front porch with half columns, bay windows, limestone features and chimney, this home’s facade has a lovely historic feel.
Built in the 1940s, the interior also has some character charm including jarrah architraves, leadlight doors and windows and ornate ceilings.
The original part of the home includes a formal lounge room with gas fireplace, dining room, light-filled kitchen with quality appliances and a walk-in pantry, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
A central atrium provides an attractive view and a visual link through to the family room, which has the feel of an English conservatory with its sloping ceiling and wall of windows and doors looking out to the backyard.
A ceiling fan and airconditioning keep this space cool in summer, while a wood-fired heater adds warmth and a cosy ambience in the cooler weather.
The master bedroom opens off the family room and shares the same verdant outlook. It has built-in robes and a glamorous ensuite with atrium views.
A veranda runs along the back of the home and would be a pleasant place to relax or dine casually.
If you want to entertain, take the party to the poolside cabana.
Built with recycled timber from the old Fremantle Sardine Factory, it has a tropical vibe, with decking, ceiling fans and cafe blinds.
The home is on a 1012sqm block with established gardens and a four-car garage with studio with bathroom that can be used as a fourth bedroom or for artistic pursuits.
