THIS Mt Hawthorn home feels like a bespoke build with a variety of tasteful design features.
There’s an extra wide hallway, each room has a different look and the cute, curved front door has glass panels.
Set behind a white picket fence on Matlock Street, the three-bedroom abode is a charming character home, but has all the bells and whistles required by a modern family.
Jarrah floors in the original section of the home have been bleached giving them a softer red-brown glow.
A formal lounge offers peaceful contemplation at the front of the house, with its gas powered “coal” fire and bank of windows.
Wake up in the main bedroom to beautiful plaster flowers on the ceiling, before heading to the black-and-white federation ensuite for morning ablutions.
And don’t forget to grab your designer clothes from the walk-in-robe.
The wide hall leads into the open plan: a vast space where the super-high ceiling is supported by soaring columns.
The floor in the extension is brick-patterned parquetry – the honey-golden timber a lovely contrast to the white kitchen fittings.
A skylight ensures plenty of natural light while cooking, and there’s a sweep of bench tops and an island bench, along with a walk-in-pantry.
A bank of glass doors off the huge family/dining/living room lead to a lovely alfresco, sheltered from the weather by a vaulted roof.
Limestone paving, terraced gardens and dappled light from a mature tree ensure this is a pleasant spot for entertaining friends or family, or simply enjoying a morning coffee.
The garage, with its mezzanine storage, is accessed off a rear right-of-way.
But drive carefully as the lane is popular with local kids riding their trikes, says the owner.
This lovely home is close to the Scarborough Beach shopping and cafe strip and there’s a choice of schools nearby, including Mt Hawthorn Primary.
