TUCKED away in a slew of Mt Lawley character homes, this charmingly modern, three-bedroom abode balances functionality and individuality in a neat 371sqm package.
Clean lines, soaring ceilings and a heap of almost floor-to-ceiling doors and windows – many accessing a plunge pool – give this home a holiday resort look and feel.
Soft, butter-yellow timber floors glow underfoot in the spacious open-plan, while high over head a timber and steel gantry walkway separates the upper-level bedrooms.
Both are queen-sized, and one has an ensuite.
Downstairs the timber floors give way to tiles in the very generous kitchen, which has a sweep of granite benchtops, heaps of honey-brown timber cupboards and two double pantries.
The spacious breakfast bar is a great leaning post for dinner guests to chat while the chef puts the finishing touches to the meal.
The timber-decked alfresco area is perfect for entertaining, with easy access to the kitchen for more supplies.
And come summer take a plunge to cool off between courses.
The main bedroom is on the ground floor, a spacious boudoir with french doors to the pool, and a bank of built-in-robes.
A rich blue-glass brick window over the deep bath adds a dramatic touch in the all-white ensuite.
This Fifth Avenue abode is close to a heap of shops and cafes on nearby Beaufort Street
Mt Lawley Senior High School and Edith Cowan University are a pleasant 10-minute walk away through lovely Hamer Park. Mt Lawley Primary is an easy eight-minute walk, with no busy roads to cross.
You’ll feel like you’re on holiday every day living in this delightful home
