CLEVER use of space has transformed this 1920s Perth abode into a hip, funky home.
And the bold colours and fresh ideas have added some flair and imagination to its heritage cred.
“It’s a homage to what it was, with all the mod cons,” the agent enthuses.
“It’s the best renovation I have seen.”
The spacious main bedroom has a gorgeous en suite with a deep bath and separate shower.
An arched doorway leads to a powder room with double vanities, and a bay window overlooking the garden.
Back in the bedroom, french windows open onto a pleasant, and very private, front courtyard.
It’s clear the owner has a flair for design and the other two bedrooms have a fantastic fish-pattern on the built-in-robes.
The original small lounge, dining room and kitchen have been knocked into one generous living space, with bifold doors and a verandah overlooking a courtyard.
The black jarrah floor boards and window frames give the house a dramatic look.
There’s also a black-tiled wall, amid apple-green ones, and a huge black De Longhi oven in the spacious kitchen, offsetting the white stone benchtops.
Next door there’s a scullery for extra prep, which is good, as you’ll be doing lots of entertaining in the delightful courtyard alfresco.
Raw brick gives the alfresco a Tuscan look, and beyond an arched door you’ll find an old garage that has been turned into a spacious artist’s studio.
This fantastic Lake Street home is a short walk from several cafes, restaurants and bars on the William Street strip.
Hyde Park is a couple of streets away and the city CBD is 10 minutes on the bus.
