YOU take the high road and I’ll take the low road, and I’ll enjoy this Glenroyd Street abode afore you.
There’s a Scottish air to this four-bedroom home in Mount Lawley, with a number of surrounding streets no doubt named by homesick scotsmen.
Judging by the decorative columns in the majestic entry, the original owner made a success of a moving to the colonies.
If the owner could look down from Heaven, I’m sure they’d be gobsmacked at the thoroughly modern extension to this 1930s abode.
They’d scratch their head at the carpet being ripped up to reveal rich jarrah floorboards, and be puzzled at the notion of a theatre room.
The sheer extravagance of two bathrooms would be a novelty, and the idea of alfresco dining would alien to someone used to huddling by the fire in the chilly Highlands.
The bedrooms are in the original section of the home, including the spacious main bedroom with its lovely art nouveau fire place.
Old and new morph in perfect harmony in the generous extension, which has huge windows and doors opening onto a protected alfresco.
There’s also bifold doors leading to a small deck on the other side of the family room.
Cooking for the clan won’t be a problem in the huge kitchen which has loads of drawers and cupboards and a sweep of granite benchtops.
Double glazing ensures the property is whisper quiet and protected from the elements.
The lovely home is a short stroll from Beaufort Street, and Mount Lawley primary and high schools are close-by.
