ASK the owner of this Mt Lawley house what he likes most about his home of 27 years and he’ll tell you it’s the Alma Street location.
It’s within walking distance of the Beaufort and Fitzgerald Street entertainment strips, the delightful Hyde Park and it’s only a 10-minute drive to the city.
“I love the position, I’ve lived in three houses on this street over 35 years,” he says.
The owner also loves the natural light flooding into the rooms, particularly the spacious open-plan with its high vaulted ceiling.
And he’s pretty stoked with the renovated kitchen: “I love the kitchen, I’ve never regretted anything about it.”
The home, built in 1911, was a “bit of a wreck” when the current owners moved in, but they’ve transformed it into a showpiece of delightful proportions.
Melding old and new in perfect harmony, you’ll find all the heritage bells and whistles including ceiling roses, jarrah floors, a couple of fireplaces, and stained-glass in the front door and some of the windows.
The spacious main bedroom at the front of the home has a deep bay window with a built-in-seat, a walk-in-robe and en suite.
The original kitchen reflects the old and new. It’s a generous space with all the mod-cons including a deep embayed window that overlooks a courtyard garden.
Beside the kitchen is the lounge/family room, where french doors open onto a delightful garden protected by high limestone walls.
The sound of tinkling water in the ornate water feature enhances the soothing feel of the garden, which has an attractive central tree and raised garden beds.
One of the two bedrooms on the second-level has an en suite and balcony with city views.
