I WAS in a bit of a Zen mood when I walked around this delightful Third Avenue home in Mt Lawley.
There were only a few empty berths in the conspicuous wine rack in the living room, and I pondered the joy of a full rack, versus the sense of loss the gaps represented.
I could imagine discussing the cosmic implications during dinner parties, whether seated in the dining area of the open plan, or on the gorgeous alfresco deck.
Situated on a rear strata, this three-bedroom/two-bathroom home is a private retreat and the perfect entry point into the housing market.
With 376sqm, it’s also a great abode for those looking to downsize while still having a garden.
Glossy, caramel brown bamboo floors flow from the entry and formal lounge, with its study nook and bay window, to the rear of the home.
Almost floor-to-ceiling windows and doors ensure the open-plan is light filled.
The cupboards in the kitchen—a generous space with walk-in-pantry—have a slightly darker, golden hue timber-look.
Even Monday’s downpour wouldn’t deter the most zealous alfresco diner, thanks to a peaked roof, expansive timber deck and high fences.
A bank of mature trees and hedging offer further protection, and a pleasant leafy outlook, and there’s even lawn for the kids and grandkids.
At the front of the home is the main bedroom, a generous space with built-in-robes and ensuite.
Large windows look onto the front courtyard, where a small deck is protected by attractive timber and brick high fences.
There’s a great cafe just down the road and the Beaufort Street and Eighth Avenue cafe strips are a short drive away.
While the prestigious Perth College, Mt Lawley Senior High School and Edith Cowan University are in walking distance.
