Charming villa

HOME owners at this West Leederville townhouse complex grew tired of paying high strata fees so they banded together to run things themselves.

Six years later and they have a very healthy bank balance and pay only $200 a quarter in fees.

The owner of number five is selling his charming three-bedroom villa, which has plenty of space and a private courtyard with a fruiting lemon tree.

A lot of windows and almost floor-to-ceiling glass doors ensure the living area and kitchen are “light, bright and airy”, the owner says.

Rich, chocolatey timber-style floors are lightened by crisp white walls. In the kitchen, a hint of black in the benchtop and light fittings adds some dramatic flair.

There’s no shortage of preparation space on the benchtop, which is part breakfast bar, and there’s a floor-to-ceiling double pull-out pantry.

Going alfresco is as simple as stepping out the double doors into the generous north-facing courtyard, which is sheltered by high walls.

The garden is minimalist, with a couple of trees and established beds, but there’s plenty of scope to create a semi-tropical oasis, and I think a water feature would go down a treat.

The main bedroom at the front of the house has two huge windows, ensuring plenty of natural light, and there’s a bank of white built-in robes and a semi-en suite bathroom with separate bath and shower.

The other two bedrooms, off the living area, are doubles with built-in-robes.

Several schools are nearby, and Lake Monger parkland—perfect for morning jogs or evening strolls—is a short walk away.

If you like eating out, Oxford Street in Leederville is a few minutes by car, and getting to work will be a cinch with two train stations close by.
