THE kitchen of this Collingwood Street, Dianella home declares its support — or sympathy — for the Magpies with crisp white cupboards and glistening black splashbacks.
I was tempted to do a little olé and flamenco down the drive as I took in the white-washed abode, with its arched front door and matching Spanish-arch windows.
Which of course date this three-bedroom/two-bathroom home as early 1970s.
What was a covered portico has been enclosed to form an entry vestibule, a bridge between the rest of the home and a former garage which is now a spacious games room. Just the shot for a growing family.
Floating timber floors add a golden glow throughout, including in the games room, open plan area and adjacent semi-open lounge – accessed through a sweeping arch.
Recently renovated the kitchen is a generous space with plenty of white Caesarestone benchtops, a hoard of drawers, and a deep double pantry.
French doors lead off the kitchen/dining area to a huge gabled alfresco area, which is big enough to have the whole clan over for Christmas, birthdays or just a get together.
Sitting on a whopping 769sqm there’s an expanse of grass for the kids to play and the makings of a lovely garden, with established beds and mature trees.
The main bedroom is at the front of the abode, with double arched windows and an ensuite.
Morley Galleria is a short drive away and there’s easy access to schools, parks and shops, and public transport.
The home is perfectly habitable, but there’s plenty to get the keen renovator’s blood pulsing. Move in, get a feel for its potential – then reach for the tool box.
