INSPIRED creative design and whimsy have transformed this 1920 North Perth abode into a fascinating family home.
Situated across the road from the Redemptorist Monastery it was originally built as a home for the nuns, but there’s nothing monastic about this stunning, modern renovation.
As you step inside the original section you’ll marvel at the stained glass, half-timber dado, polished jarrah floorboards, ceiling roses and fireplaces.
Three of the four bedrooms are in the original section, along with a formal lounge with a gas fireplace.
Things start to get really interesting as you slide back the timber doors in the main bedroom to reveal a lovely en suite with raw-brick walls and subway tiles.
Like Dr Who’s tardis it’s deceptively big and has a massive shower in the centre of the room.
Adjacent is a white stone double vanity, and a step away a spacious dressing room.
The second bathroom screams modern Japan with stark grey plaster, white tiles and a black fibreglass deck in the shower.
The colour scheme is echoed in the spacious open plan where grey tones are offset by crisp white walls and black trims on the doors.
In an ingenious touch, the huge original linen cupboard has been converted into a study nook.
The generous kitchen has a sweep of white stone benchtops and plenty of drawers and cupboards.
Clever cabinetry by Artifex Perth ensures no wasted space, including a cupboard that swivels out to maximise storage.
Alfresco dining is made easy with a huge pivoted window that creates an outdoor servery/bar.
Local artist Brenton See painted the huge mural of pink and grey galahs in the “outdoor room”, which has high walls, tiled paving, stone benches and a raw-brick feature wall.
A nearby terrace has faux grass for kids to play on, and an alfresco sheltered by high walls and a double garage.
Situated on Vincent Street on the Leederville border, there’s a heap of cafes and shops nearby and you can walk to Hyde Park and Beatty Park pool.
This is a fantastic abode, so get along to a home open and check it out.
