GOLDEN orbs hang like exotic ear rings from an angel trumpet tree, its fragrant scent enhancing a vine-covered alfresco.
There’s many delights at this Mt Lawley home, from a front courtyard protected by high hedges – creating a tranquil, sun-filled nook – to the numerous art deco features.
Federation tiles add to the genteel elegance of the wrap-around front verandah, which overlooks the garden and water feature.
Inside there’s a raft of lovely features including stained glass in the front door, rich jarrah floors, decorative ceiling roses, art deco fireplaces and soaring ceilings.
Accessed through decorative arches is the formal lounge, with a lovely fireplace and ceiling rose, and a spacious office that would make a nice fourth bedroom.
The thoroughly modern extension retains the home’s old world charm with banks of windows in the spacious kitchen/dining/family room.
This area has delicate stained glass, including bright yellow primroses above the french doors.
Red cedar cupboards enhance the walk-in-pantry and spacious kitchen, while black granite benchtops create a dramatic touch.
At the front of the house is the main bedroom, where french doors, protected by white plantation shutters, open onto the verandah and secluded garden.
Secure parking for two cars is accessed off a rear right-of-way, and there’s a large, powered workshop/storage area.
This lovely four-bedroom home is perfect for a family, with space for peaceful solitude and places to share.
Situated on Farnley Street, it’s in the high-demand catchment area for Mt Lawley Primary and High School, and close to Edith Cowan University.
Just off Walcott Street, there’s a surfeit of shops, cafes and restaurants nearby, and the Perth CBD is six minutes away by car, or 15 by bus or bike.
