THIS North Perth home is so relaxing, I almost forgot I was doing a review while chatting to the owner.
The four-bedroom abode feels well-loved and well-lived in, but it also has a hint of the party house.
According to the owner, 40 people sat down for Christmas lunch in the spacious open plan area.
With bifold doors opening onto a wide, elevated verandah with city views, it’s the perfect spot for sipping something long and cold on a hot evening.
“In the summer there’s a nice breeze because of the elevation,” the owner says.
In winter the back garden is a sun trap with high fences protecting against cold winds.
Tasmanian oak glows warmly underfoot throughout the home.
It’s also used on the cupboards in the spacious kitchen, which includes an almost floor-to-ceiling double pantry.
At the front of the home, the huge main bedroom has walk-in-robes and a spacious modern bathroom, with a deep bath and double showers.
Bedroom two and three, and the second bathroom, form a kids wing.
There’s a fourth bedroom and second sitting area at the rear of the home, which is perfect for visiting family, the owner says.
French doors open onto a spacious deck with a massive curved pergola.
There’s something very zen about the beautiful, low-maintenance garden, with your eyes drawn to two yucca trees in the raised garden beds.
Startling white river rocks and flagstones add to the sense of drama in this very private space.
This Redfern Street home is close to cafes, restaurants and shops, and there’s easy access to the city and freeway, making it a great place to live.
