AN impressive array of power tools is a clue that the rear extension of this Grand Promenade home isn’t being used as a family room, or second sitting area.
Mind you, it’s spick and span enough to be either.
The tools are not included with this two-bedroom cottage, which is a shame, as I’d be using them to cut a hole in the wall of this man cave to provide easier access to a covered patio, currently accessed via the sparkling white laundry.
A family room isn’t really required as there is a spacious lounge, where timber-framed double doors and windows onto the front verandah reflect the home’s 1960s vintage.
The entry and lounge’s richly polished jarrah floors flow into a dining alcove that links the lounge and kitchen.
Recently renovated, the kitchen is a generous space that would satisfy the fussiest of cooks, with an expanse of dark, grey benchtops; a plethora of white, soft-close drawers and cupboards; and a double pantry.
Each of the bedrooms have built-in-robes, and share the renovated bathroom, which has a deep tub, separate shower, and crisp white walls.
Sitting on 690sqm this is a great home for a young family, with a swathe of grass to play under the shade of a massive jacaranda tree.
There’s even a double shed to store everything when the indoor man cave is no more.
Metres from the Bedford border, this home is a few minutes drive from the Beaufort Street cafe strip and Morley Galleria.
Zoned R30, there’s potential to keep the existing cottage and build on the rear — subject to council approval — or demolish and build two new dwellings.
