THE owners of this delightful Mt Lawley home have overseen many extensions and renovations over the last 40 years.
When it came to adding a games room for a growing family, they wanted the look of an old-style Queenslander.
Boy did they deliver, with a timber-framed turreted room connecting to the second storey via a wrap-around verandah. From floor to cathedral ceiling, honey-gold timber dominates this stunning space.
There’s beautiful red glass set into the peak of the ceiling, and huge picture windows ensure plenty of natural light and lovely views of Banks Reserve.
This sprawling four-bedroom home is an eclectic tribute to 40 years of life, from the original ceiling roses and jarrah floorboards to the modern kitchen and family room.
The spacious open plan, added some years ago, has a vaulted ceiling and a bank of windows separating the alfresco.
The galley-style kitchen has a walk-in-pantry and a heap of white drawers/cupboards and buttery-gold pine benches.
The second-level verandah doubles as a pleasant alfresco and overlooks a small garden with mango and paw paw trees and a Tahitian lime.
There’s a tennis court, but it has fallen on tough times, and I think this would be a great spot for a pool.
The house is on a large 1189sqm block on Joel Terrace, so you could subdivide, and because it’s a corner block there’s discretion on plot ratio if the original house is retained.
Joel Tce is a sought-after location close to the Beaufort Street strip and several schools, including Trinity, Mercedes and Perth College.
It’s a pleasant walk to the new Burswood Stadium and you can cycle along the foreshore into the city.
