THIS two-storey home’s location appealed to the owners as it was close to everything their family required, particularly schools, the beach, university and the city.

They called it the 10-minute location as it was 10 minutes from wherever they wanted to go.

Selling agent Molly Markwell said it is a quintessential Subiaco bungalow, built in 1935 and seamlessly renovated in 2009/10.

The home has a charming exterior, complete with white picket fence and bullnose veranda.

Inside, high ceilings, detailed cornices, a central hallway, fireplace and timber flooring are among the character features.

The versatile floor plan includes a separate sitting room and open-plan living area and kitchen that flows out to an undercover entertaining area that can comfortably accommodate 30 people for a sit down meal.

Ms Markwell said the kitchen, living and entertaining area held many happy memories for the family.

“It was where they congregated regularly, enjoyed many celebrations and entertained over the years,” she said.

The home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, including the luxurious main bathroom.

The master bedroom, with vaulted ceilings, walk-in robe and ensuite is on the first floor.

It opens to a balcony with tree top views that is an ideal place to enjoy the cool breeze in summer.

The home is on a 410sq m block, with landscaped gardens and a secure garage at the back of property.

The owners have loved the friendly neighbourhood, with its annual Christmas party and sense of community.

Ms Markwll said the home allowed the owners’ children to transition seamlessly from school to university, while enjoying local amenities like Lake Jualbup, but they have now left home and the owners are downsizing.

“The house is a family home and simply too large for their requirements,” she said.

It is a chance for another family to enjoy the lovely location and gorgeous home.

It is for sale by open negotiation, with offers from $1 million due on July 29.
