THIS home is situated on the leafy Alfonso Street, which has gorgeous examples of early Perth architecture like the Redemptorist Monastery.
Featuring all the heritage bells and whistles, this four-bedroom house has art nouveau-tiled fireplaces, a stained-glass front door, soaring ceilings and chocolate-brown jarrah floors.
The long hall has a decorative plaster arch and there’s plenty of dainty ceiling roses.
Facing the quiet street, the spacious main bedroom has a fire place and double-sash windows, offering views of the manicured garden and a nearby church.
A dressing room leads to the ensuite, which has a marble vanity and stained glass port-hole window.
Step through the bifold doors of the central lounge and you’ll find the perfect blend of old and new in the large open-plan living area.
Banks of french doors and a multitude of windows flood this space with natural light.
Off to one side, the kitchen has white stone benchtops and huge windows overlooking the garden.
A spacious timber deck/verandah is perfect for alfresco dining or to read the papers with a morning coffee on the weekend.
Sitting on 558sqm, there’s a grassy terrace for the kids, a cubby house tucked under a shady tree, and a car port accessed from a rear laneway.
Despite it’s quiet location, this lovely North Perth home is just a 20-minute walk from the Leederville strip.
Beatty Park Leisure Centre is even closer, and the Perth CBD is a short drive or bus trip away.
