Heritage stunner

THE estate agent was quick to mention that this 1930s Mt Lawley home was close to some lovely parks, ovals and the Beaufort Street cafe strip.

But I was too busy admiring the gorgeous art deco features and stunning decorative ceilings – including a magnificent domed ceiling in the street-facing lounge room – to notice.

The formal and informal spaces are beautiful and have jewelled leadlight french doors and windows, tuck-pointed fireplaces, jarrah plate rails and classic timber doors and window surrounds.

The street-facing main bedroom has a lot of art deco features and boasts a spacious federation-style en suite.

French doors connect the lounge to the dining room, which is currently used as a study.

Just a doorway away, old and new merge in an open-plan kitchen/living/dining space.

Budding cooks will enjoy the sweep of golden timber cupboards, granite benchtops, huge pantry and Miele oven.

The original wood-fired Settler stove takes pride of place, and it’s a gorgeous piece of history in pristine condition.

Light floods the living/dining area and french doors provide access to a pleasant alfresco with a vine-covered patio.

There’s a small patch of grass here, but the fenced front garden is a  great spot for kids to play, and mum and dad can watch them affectionately from the front verandah.

The second storey addition has two bedrooms, a spacious sitting area and a balcony overlooking leafy Mt Lawley.

This four-bedroom/three-bathroom home is close to Mt Lawley Primary and High Schools and Edith Cowan University.
