THIS sweet Mt Lawley home is the perfect nest for an upwardly mobile couple or retirees looking to downsize.
Boasting three bedrooms and two bathrooms there’s plenty of space for a family and the opportunity to go up a storey, subject to council approval.
The subdivided property sits on 379sqm metres, with a low-maintenance rear yard that could be easily transformed into a lush garden for Sunday brunches or family barbies.
Nestled behind a classic white picket fence, the generous front verandah is a great spot to watch people stroll along Fifth Avenue, which is framed by mature peppermint trees.
Built around 1940 the home boasts late art deco ceiling roses, a fireplace in one of the bedrooms, picture rails, high skirting boards and jarrah floors.
The bedrooms are situated at the front, and the kitchen is the demarcation between the original house and the extension.
Freshly painted in a subtle taupe, with contrasting white tiles and cupboards, the kitchen’s a generous space barely impacted by a dining setting.
A raked ceiling adds to the spaciousness of the living area, which has timber-framed glass doors leading to the back garden.
This Fifth Avenue home is close to Mt Lawley Primary and High Schools, and Edith Cowan University.
If you fancy going out for a meal, the Beaufort Street strip is a short drive away.
