Sunny side of the street

LOOKING for your first home? Or maybe it’s time to downsize, to a lock and leave? This Wellington Road, Dianella home could be just what you’re looking for.

The two-bedroom villa, sitting on just 218sqm, is as neat as a new pin inside and out, with a fresh paint job brightening up the 1970s abode from top to bottom.

A high front wall ensures privacy in a pleasant courtyard garden, where a swathe of grass is gentle on the eye, a huge old frangipani tree is sure to scent the summer air, and a railway sleeper and river-rock path to the front door is a lovely artistic touch.

Add a paved area for alfresco dining and what more could you want.

The vendor, the proud mum of a two-week old bub, likes the character of her first home, with its ornate ceilings and cornices.

And the location is great with Galleria just down the road, she says: “And it’s easy to get into the city.”

Aged jarrah glow throughout, contrasting with the crisp white walls, and a huge picture window in the central living area looks out over the garden.

Original ‘70s cupboards in the kitchen are a nice touch, albeit with a refreshing coat of white paint, and contrast beautifully with teal-blue tiles.

The bathroom on the other hand is sparkle-arkley brand new, with large stylish grey tiling and white fittings, including a very cute vanity.

With split-system air conditioning the bedrooms will always be a comfortable place to lay weary heads.

There’s a single garage, but parking for two. And no strata fees are an added bonus.

Close to public transport, only 7km from Perth and close to shops, schools, medical centres and parkland this is a great first or last home.
