Nice surprise

NEVER judge a book by its cover.

I know it’s a cliche, but it was the perfect adage for this six-bedroom home in North Street, Mt Lawley.

From the street the house looks like a neat, run-of-the-mill abode, but inside it’s grand, elegant and contemporary—the ultimate family home with plenty of pizazz.

The original home has been beautifully renovated, preserving its art deco ceilings, fireplaces, jarrah floors, leadlight windows and deep skirting.

In the original section there’s a formal living/dining room with a gorgeous deco-tiled fireplace.

Old meets new in the eye-popping open-plan, which has massive floor-to-glass walls stretching up to a cathedral ceiling.

On the other side of the glass is a huge alfresco, complete with a stylish natural-stone wall, inset with a gas fire.

The golden-spotted gum floorboards in the kitchen add a nice warmth to the crisp white cupboards.

Even Gordon Ramsay couldn’t fault this gorgeous domestic space, which has a floor-to-ceiling pantry, white stone benchtops, a central island/breakfast bar and state-of-the-art appliances.

The alfresco feels larger than most houses and has space for two sitting areas—one to watch the massive TV on the wall and the other for a dining suite.

Nearby, a second living room has access to a small garden with lawn and some paving.

The main bedroom is super-sized and has a huge dressing room, swish en suite and double glass doors that open to reveal a heated outdoor swimming pool.

A rear gate leads to the delightful Hamer Park—a great place to play and walk the dog—or you could go for a pleasant stroll to Mt Lawley Senior High School, WAAPA and Edith Cowan University.

Inglewood Oval and the Mt Lawley Tennis Club are just as close and you could wheel your clubs to the Mt Lawley Golf Club.
