THE first time I saw this North Perth home, built in 1935, I was instantly taken by the classic charm of its red-tiled roof, cream exterior and green, stainless steel fencing.
It blends in perfectly with Mabel Street, which is tree-lined and dominated by classic homes, most of which look like time left them alone.
One of the big pluses of this two-bedroom home is location: it’s situated less than five minutes from the freeway, and less than 10 minutes from the Perth CBD and the bustling nightlife in Leederville and Northbridge.
The green-titled block is 277 square metres, making it easy to maintain, and is ideal for two to three people to live in.
The interior has many classic features — there’s the beautiful jarrah floorboards, stained glass windows, ornate white ceiling, open fireplace in the main living area and a bay window in the main bedroom.
The amenities are good for a home of this size and it has two car ports protected by the perimeter gate, two living areas, bedrooms with built-in-robes, a contemporary kitchen with a stove, dishwasher and cupboard, and a laundry that has access to the backyard.
For added convenience, there is also air conditioning and automated reticulation.
If you’re the kind of person that likes things compact and easy, then it’s definitely a home worth looking at.
