THE owners of this two-storey character home love Subiaco’s village atmosphere.
“We love the beautiful properties around us and the vibrant life in general,” they said.
“On a winter’s evening there is nothing better than walking along the streets of Subiaco with the dog, looking at all the lovely houses with their beautiful stained glass windows all lit up – we very much feel like part of the village.”
While seeing other local houses would be delightful, it would be an absolute pleasure to return home to this circa-1890s brick-and-iron house with white picket fence, wisteria-clad veranda and stained glass features of its own.
The owners said it was a favourite of the people of Perth.
“I have been stopped so many times and told by others that this is a favourite of theirs, many times with them offering a story about its history,” they said.
“I am told it was once owned by a TV chef who used to have her show filmed in the kitchen.”
Built in the Victorian style, the interior includes lovely period features including polished jarrah flooring, gorgeous ornate ceilings, arched hallway, fireplace and high skirtings.
The original home has been updated, renovated and extended over the years.
The owners added some luxury touches of their own and said there was scope for more work and for the new owners to put their on stamp on the home.
The ground floor includes three bedrooms and a bathroom along one side of the central hallway.
The living areas are also on this floor and include a formal lounge and dining room and open-plan living/dining/kitchen area.
The kitchen has granite benchtops, double oven and generous cupboard space.
There are opportunities for outdoor dining and entertaining with the dining room opening to a courtyard, and an alfresco area in the backyard.
The master bedroom is on the first floor and selling agent Enzo Pagnozzi described it as ballroom-sized.
It has a wall of built-in robes, ensuite and extra storage space in the ceiling.
The 599sq m corner block includes a solar-heated pool and double garage with access from Chester Street.
It is close to the cafes and shops on Rokeby Road, the train station and Kings Park.
