TREELESS suburbs seem to be the way of the future, but the leafy streets of Menora will continue to charm.
From the second level of this Melrose Crescent home you can enjoy a sea of green, with mature trees stretching as far as the eye can see.
Adding to the verdant view, there’s a delightful park over the back fence and across the road is a swathe of grass courts at Alexander Park Tennis Club.
Built in the early 1930s, this four-bedroom home has lots of art deco charm, including gorgeous leadlight windows and french doors, and decorative ceilings.
The spacious main bedroom includes a lovely study, and has leadlight windows, a walk-in-robe and stylish en suite.
Across the wide hall is the formal dining room and lounge, a huge space with an imitation coal fire and more leadlight windows.
Old meets new in perfect harmony in the vast open-plan, which has a bank of stacker doors that open onto the charming garden.
Beautifully appointed, the huge modern kitchen has white stone benchtops, an integrated Miele dishwasher and a generous walk-in-pantry.
Alfresco dining is every bit as stylish with a covered patio and flagstone paving.
Limestone steps lead to a lawn terrace with raised garden beds.
Off to the side is a sparkling pool with a sitting area and a beautifully manicured backdrop.
The second level is the kids “wing” with three bedrooms (one semi-en suite) and another lounge area.
Despite its tranquil leafy setting, Melrose Crescent is close to cafes and shops, and only four kilometres from the Perth CBD.
There’s a heap of schools nearby including Coolbinia Primary and Mt Lawley High, as well as Perth College and Edith Cowan University.
