WE sell aerated waters and ginger beer,” read the large sign on the wall of this Leederville home.
Built in the 1920s, this former shop on Galwey Street served generations of locals with the owners living in the dwelling at the rear.
Almost a century later, the old house and deli have been transformed into a three-bedroom contemporary abode.
But don’t worry all the heritage bells and whistles are still there, including art deco ceiling roses, molded picture rails, lead-light windows and rich jarrah floors.
Walls separating the deli and home have been removed to create a spacious open-plan kitchen/living/dining area.
Crisp white walls contrast nicely with gleaming jarrah floors, and a built-in jarrah seat runs the length of the living room.
A huge white stone breakfast bar dominates the spacious kitchen.
The second lounge has bifold doors opening onto a lovely courtyard that is perfect for relaxing after a hard day’s work, or crank up the huge barbecue and invite your mates around.
The spacious main bedroom has built-in-robes and a funky ensuite with floor-to-ceiling dark grey tiles, contrasting with the white porcelain sink, vanity and cupboards.
The home’s second bathroom has a claw-foot bath and two cute stained glass windows.
Nestled in a quiet suburban street, there’s plenty of shops and cafes close by and no shortage of parks within walking distance.
