THIS three-bedroom home on a rear block is an echo of the Federation abode that sits out the front, with a matching peaked roof-line.
There are many delightful old-world touches inside the very modern abode, including pressed tin insets in the ceiling of the spacious family room, and kitchen.
Huge double, timber doors open into the open-plan where the eye is drawn to a wall of windows and doors and a pleasant alfresco courtyard that fills out the 405sqm block.
Beautiful dark-gold floors, with a darker striation, contrast with crisp white walls in this light-filled space.
Living and working spaces complement each other in perfect harmony, and the open-plan looks like it could feature in a Vogue magazine.
White Essa stone tops a huge island in the kitchen, with an integrated dishwasher, and double sink, and there’s a sweep of bench space, backed by a wall of tiles.
The fridge alcove is plumbed to provide cold water at the press of a button, and there’s a huge double pantry, along with plenty of drawers and cupboards.
Pride of place is obviously the massive six-burner, gas-topped electric oven, which the owner was quick to point to as I admired the immaculate kitchen.
A retractable awning in the courtyard ensures this very private space can be used almost year round.
Two of the bedrooms and a bathroom are on the second floor.
Crowning the home is the third-level parents’ retreat, a huge space with a vaulted ceiling, walk-in-robe and ensuite with double vanities.
Tucked under the eaves is a study nook situated to capture the sun on cool winter days.
This lovely home is just around the corner from Beaufort Street and its plethora of shops, cafes and restaurants, and the Perth CBD is a mere 10-minute drive away.
