I’VE always had a soft spot for Inglewood.
It has larger, better-value blocks than Mt Lawley and you are still really close to the Beaufort Street strip.
This gorgeous three-bedroom home on Crawford Road is on a 562sqm block and has plenty of traditional features including high ceilings, jarrah floorboards and decorative ceilings.
But don’t worry, it still has all the mod cons, including a renovated kitchen and two classy modern bathrooms.
You can tell the owners have good taste and the kitchen and bathrooms are uncluttered with sleek white lines and minimalist decor.
All three bedrooms are a decent size and have a relaxing, neutral colour scheme.
But this house is anything but bland, with rich jarrah floors adding a lovely warm contrast to the sense of restraint and style found elsewhere.
The large, formal lounge has a quaint ornate fireplace and is currently being used as a fourth bedroom, but it would make a lovely place to quaff wine and socialise.
Light floods into the rear living area courtesy of the full height, north-facing windows, which open onto a spacious back garden.
I really love the back garden.
There’s a large lawn for kids to play on, or you could put in a pool, and beside the fence are two mature ornamental plum trees, which the owner uses for his hammock.
There’s also a cute paved alfresco area that is big enough for a table and chairs.
Back inside, the family bathroom has a large bath/shower, and the second European-style laundry bathroom includes a toilet and shower.
The property has a secure garage, off-street parking for a second vehicle, and is close to St Peter’s Primary School.
This is a tasteful family home with a lovely sense of style.
