A SUITE of bifold doors frame a picture-perfect poinciana tree in the garden of this North Perth home.
The rich green tones of the foliage, punctuated with a scattering of red flowers, look enchanting and in full flower this tree must look magnificent.
Turn of the century character and state of the art modernity meld with equal perfection in this three-bedroom abode, tucked behind decorative wrought iron fencing on tree-lined Marmion Street.
All the charm of the early 1900s can be found in the original home, with high ceilings, a gorgeous stained-glass front door, rich jarrah floors and dainty ceiling roses.
The bedrooms are in this section, including the main which is large and has a generous walk-in-robe and spacious ensuite.
The loo here has a jungle view, thanks to a wall of glass that overlooks a lush atrium garden.
Old jarrah morphs into new in the spacious modern extension, which has soaring ceilings and sleek lines.
Spick and span is the theme of the kitchen, including a long Caesarstone island bench, and a raft of cupboards and soft-close drawers. You’ll have to seek out the double fridge/freezer because it’s integrated into what looks like a bank of pantry cupboards.
There’s room in the dining area for a 10-seater dining table, and even more space to entertain guests on the timber deck alfresco area.
Whether it’s a formal or informal get together, this is a lovely space with a built-in-stainless-steel-barbeque kitchen, sink and bar fridge.
Sitting on 506sqm there’s a swathe of lawn for the kids, and several raised limestone garden beds.
And if any of the guests have had one too many there’s a studio guest room at the bottom of the garden.
This delightful abode is a mere 10 minutes walk from Hyde Park and the Beaufort Street strip, or pop down to Angove Street where’s there’s no shortage of shops and cafes.
