WITH two secure gates guarding entry to this North Perth home, it’s the perfect place to barricade yourself in and ignore the world.
Gate number one is an attractive timber number accessing a decked walkway.
Number two fortifies a covered portico, which is a great spot for visitors to shelter while you check them out on the video surveillance.
With crim-safe on the windows there’s no chance of a surprise visit, welcome or otherwise, at this Selden Street beauty.
Whether enjoying the solitude, or inviting guests in, this three-bedroom home is a delightful sanctuary.
A central atrium, visible from many rooms, provides a green focal point and has glassed-walled walkways.
Viewed from the floor-to-ceiling windows of two of the second level bedrooms, it is a light-filled charm.
And there’s a different ambience when the atrium is viewed from the front sitting room and dining area of this generous open plan.
With huge tiles on the floor, and banks of bifold doors to the garden, the elegant living area is enhanced by a series of beautiful coloured glass light-shades from Turkey, dangling over the dining table.
Three more hang over the expansive island bench in the kitchen, lending a colourful glow to the white Caesarstone tops.
With its sweep of benches, and multitude of soft-close drawers and double pantry, the kitchen is a chef’s delight.
There’s even a scullery, with more bench space, a second fridge, and a laundry in a cupboard.
The living area flows effortlessly into a lovely garden alfresco, where high walls are softened by greenery and a tall water feature.
There’s room under cover for an outdoor setting and lounge, adjacent to the built-in-barbeque kitchen.
The bedrooms are on the second level, including the main, with its generous walk-in-robe and an ensuite large enough for a separate bath and shower, and double vanities, and a balcony looking out across parkland to the hills.
Perth is a mere 12 minute drive from Perth, while Edith Cowan University and Mt Lawley High School are around seven.
