THE owner bought this townhouse on a 210sq m block six years ago, looking for something to downsize to.
“We had come out of a big house in Nedlands that had gardens and a pool to maintain and wanted something that required little looking after so we could go away and travel without the worry,” they said.
The location, in the heart of Subiaco, also appealed and they have made the most of the amenities as well as the opportunity to leave the car at home as much as possible.
“The neighbourhood has suited the lifestyle perfectly for the time we lived there,” they said. “It was a short walk to Subiaco Oval to watch the Eagles play, an easy walk into Subiaco for shopping and eating out, and we have loved being so close to Kings Park to be able to enjoy walks and weekends there.
“It has also been very handy to walk two minutes down the road and hop onto a City Cat bus and not worry about driving or parking in the city.
“We also have lots of friends south and north of the city so there is easy access to the freeway in both directions.”
The home’s ground floor includes a study, or potential fourth bedroom, and an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area with polished timber flooring. Glass doors open to a private, north-facing courtyard. The owner said it was quiet and the perfect place to sit and enjoy the sun in summer or winter.
The courtyard also has access to a double garage.
A steel-and-timber staircase leads to the first floor where there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including the master with ensuite.
All bedrooms have built-in robes and the main bathroom has a bath and separate shower.
Other features of the home include a front courtyard with secure gate, drying courtyard off the laundry, and ducted airconditioning.
