A lot packed into a home

HOARDERS unite; this beautiful Walcott Street home has enough storage space to pack away a city.

This Hansel and Gretelesque property in Mount Lawley has an inviting appeal with decorative balustrades lining the top and bottom verandah.

The large limestone terrace out the front was once home to a swimming pool but has, in recent years, been professionally landscaped to become the driveway.

The lower floor of the house, which is pretty much under the actual home, has endless storage space.

It includes a shed-type storage room, a room with a wine cellar and another open storage area.

Real character

High ceilings throughout, gorgeous chandeliers and 1920s decor on the walls and roof give this home real character.

Decorative arches line the large entrance and hallway for an elegant welcome.

With three large-sized bedrooms, there’s always space to experiment; one’s currently being used as an office.

Off the main bedroom is an enclosed section of balcony.  It’s being used as a nursery but could be anything from a dressing room to a quiet reading room with access to the front verandah.

The quaint kitchen is fitted with all-white cupboards, a white-tiled splashback and a large double oven.

A large island bench sits in the centre of the room with pendant lights to add a romantic ambience.

Along with all of the storage in the kitchen, there is a pantry with plenty more storage for food and crockery.

There are four fireplaces around the house but they’re rarely used due to the ducted reverse cycle air-con.

One of these fireplaces is in the lounge which is lined with timber floorboards and with two windows, the natural light brightens up the room all day.

A large formal dining room is the location for another fireplace and gives an element of upper class dining with a beautiful chandelier.

The bathroom, powder room and laundry are the last rooms before you hit the backyard paradise.

A generous-sized verandah is the perfect spot to relax and have a coffee or entertain visitors. Enclosed by blinds, it keeps out the flies, wind, rain and any other elements you would rather leave outside — rellies included!

High colorbond fencing surrounds the entire back yard and tall trees provide more privacy and shading to the garden.

The back area is accessible from the front via gates on both sides of the house, one side being used for clothes lines and the other just an elegant pathway of plants.
