SELLING agent Bev Heymans said this home is in the most family-friendly street in Cottesloe.
Its wide verges have plenty of room for trampolines and swings and are popular places for the local children to play.
The owners bought the home on a 759sq m block more than 20 years ago.
“We were initially attracted by the large block as we had a young family,” they said.
“We also loved the wide verges and the fact that Griver Street isn’t a busy street.”
Built in the ’40s, the home has plenty of character charm including a veranda, timber floorboards, fireplaces, high ceilings and an arched hallway.
The owners loved the period features but found the home was not big enough for their growing family, so they extended it in 2001.
“We had Simon Rodrigues design a large rear extension,” they said.
“This provided us with an upstairs master bedroom and a very big living room and kitchen.
“We also put in a pool, which we have loved.”
The home’s ground floor layout includes three bedrooms, a modern main bathroom and a central living room with fireplace.
This living area opens to another lovely living space with fireplace and built-in bookshelves.
Currently set up as a dining area, it would also be a cosy sitting area, particularly on a chilly winter’s evening.
This space flows through to the kitchen/|family area, which the owners said was their favourite space in the house.
“We love cooking and entertaining and this is such a spacious, family-orientated hub of our home,” they said.
The kitchen includes an island bench with breakfast bar, stainless-steel appliances and walk-in pantry.
A wall of doors open to the sheltered alfresco area that leads to a saltwater pool with sitting area.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is a pleasant retreat for parents and has a walk-in robe and stylish ensuite.
The block includes a double garage and plenty of extra room for parking, which allows use of the garage as a games room or as a children’s activity room.
