ART deco and Bali combine in perfect harmony at this grand old Mt Lawley home – strange though that may sound.
Art deco sums up the original dwelling with its sweeping verandah, glowing jarrah floors and decorative ceilings.
The formal lounge has a natural stone fireplace and is an elegant space that flows into the formal dining room.
Bali enters the vernacular as you enter the luxurious main bedroom; a huge space with a spacious walk-in-robe.
The generous en suite is pure 21st century Australia, but step out into a protected courtyard and you’ll find a tropical paradise that includes a claw-foot bath and separate shower.
Industrial-modern best describes the sweeping open-plan, which has sleek lines and a bank of french doors framing the garden.
Coffee-coloured tiles and white perspex continue the urban theme in the massive kitchen that includes a huge induction stove and masses of cupboards and drawers.
Terraced gardens lead to a tiled alfresco area which is large enough for a lounge suite and dining setting.
The spacious built-in-barbecue kitchen has plenty of bench space and double concrete sinks.
Sitting on a whopping 1012sqm, there’s a swathe of grass for the kids to play on, and a 17-metre key-shaped pool with long section for laps and a round, shade-sail area for floating.
Four of the five bedrooms are on the second level, with some boasting river, stadium and city views.
This is a fantastic family home in a great location: You can walk, run, cycle or kayak down to Claisebrook Cove, wander across the bridge to the new Perth Stadium, or if you fancy a meal and a show, head into the CBD.
