YOU will enjoy family living surrounded by touches of yesteryear in this art deco home.
Behind a high brick fence and set back from the street, it is a secluded enclave where the front yard has been transformed into a private entertaining area with timber decking, built-in seating and water-wise hedging.
Inside there are plenty of gorgeous reminders of the home’s origins with jarrah flooring, high ornate ceilings and leadlight windows and doors.
A formal lounge room has original light fittings, fireplace and a Deco-style curved bar.
The layout flows through to a dining room and activity room with access to a rear, covered alfresco area.
The dining room opens to the modern kitchen/ meals area with white-gloss cabinetry, subway-tiled splashback and servery window to the alfresco area.
There are three bedrooms.
Two, including the master with built-in robes, are on one side of the house near the main bathroom.
The third bedroom, with built-in robes and ensuite, is on the other side and could be an alternative master bedroom.
The backyard includes the decked alfresco area and a garden courtyard.
Other features are ducted reverse-cycle airconditioning, single garage, secure parking for two more cars and remote-controlled entrance gate with intercom access.
The home is on a 436sq m block in walking distance of the shops on Birkdale Street, in the catchment area for Floreat Primary School and Shenton College and with easy access to the city and beach.
