April’s promise

This April Street, Dianella home has had the proverbial ‘one careful owner’. Or should that be a ‘family of careful owners’?

It was built in 1962, a year after the vendors were married.

As the family grew so did the home, and it’s had a few upgrades to meet more than 50 years of changing lifestyles, and fashions.

The old nursery is now part of a gargantuan powder room off the main bedroom’s ensuite—unheard of luxuries in the ‘60s, even for Dianella’s “golden triangle”.

There’s enough room these days to accommodate the third generation, and at least one of the grandkids is already wailing about where they’ll sleep come the annual family Christmas get-together.

From the street this single-storey home, with its sweeping front lawn and rose beds, has a modest, genteel respectability.

But there’s nothing modest beyond the huge French doors and the vestibule that lays beyond, in this four-bedroom/two-bathroom abode.

A commodious, formal-lounge/dining room flanks the entry, a gracious space in rich creams— including the darker cream of massive drapes framing the bay window overlooking the street.

I can only imagine the number of meals cooked in the cavernous kitchen, made with love for the growing family.

Updated over the years it’s a modern expanse with white cupboards. There’s a walk-in-pantry and smooth, stone sink.

A hatch on one side overlooks the formal dining area, while the other side is open to a spacious informal dining area that could easily become a dining/family room.

Large sliding glass doors access a small covered patio for a bit of alfresco dining.

All those renovations have seen the main bedroom, facing the quiet street, become a spacious domain, with a walk-in-robe and large ensuite.

But most of the bedrooms are at the rear and all but one are doubles.

The garden is vast with a swathe of grass and tiered limestone garden beds full of roses.

There’s room here for a swimming pool, or a kids’ playground.

The vendor’s know only too well what a great location this is for a growing family, and schooling is covered from kindy and primary school to the nearby Edith Cowan University and Mt Lawley High.

And when it comes to shopping, or grabbing a spot of breakfast or lunch you’re spoilt for choice a short drive away.
