WITH many new luxury homes built on Jutland Parade and Iris Avenue in recent years, the owner said this 1950s-built residence was unique in that it was possibly the last old-style, traditional house left.
It is on a 1007sq m block on the corner of quiet Haig Street.
Behind the high fence, a path leads you through the gardens to the entry.
The home has a wonderful feel of yesteryear with feature brickwork, ornate ceilings and spacious rooms.
There are formal and informal living spaces, two office spaces, four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Outside, jacaranda trees cast their shade over a brick-paved veranda, making it a fabulous place to sit in summer and spring.
Another outdoor area overlooks a pool that will provide hours of summer fun for the whole family.
There is also a rear studio that could become a gym, workshop or space for storage.
The home is a delightful reminder of a time gone by and is ready for renovation, with a new owner able to create a modern residence that retains the character of the era.
Alternatively, it could be demolished and a new home built on the gently sloping site that is a five-minute stroll from a lovely riverside walk.
The home is also close to several schools, UWA, lovely parks and the Claremont Quarter.
It offers a rare opportunity to move into the heart of Dalkeith.
