THIS 1990 North Perth home has all the grace and charm of the federation-era, but with none of the inconveniences.
There’s plenty of nods to the period with stained glass in the front door, high ceilings, a decorative arch in the hall and a cute faux fireplace in the lounge.
Cool terracotta tiles grace the floors of the entry and the kitchen/dining area.
It’s softer underfoot in the carpeted, street-facing lounge, and across the hall the spacious study (or perhaps guest room) also has carpet.
In the dining/kitchen area there’s a spacious pantry, a decorative architrave and some lovely, golden timber cupboards that wrap around the sink.
Huge windows overlook the north-facing courtyard garden, which has an alfresco sheltered by high fences and a timber and fibreglass roof.
The garden beds are pretty bare, but the addition of more greenery (perhaps flowering vines to cover the fence) would add to the ambience, creating a great spot for barbecues with friends and family.
Two of the three bedrooms are on the ground floor.
The third is part of a parents’ retreat on the second level that includes a spacious bedroom, walk-in-robe and large ensuite with spa bath and separate shower. A street-facing balcony in the bedroom completes the gorgeous picture.
Situated on Alma Street, Hyde Park is a five-minute walk away and there’s a heap of shops, cafes and restaurants nearby.
