OLD and new coalesce in glorious harmony in this Inglewood home.
This home is within walking distance of Edith Cowan University and Mt Lawley High and Primary Schools, where the owners’ kids attended.
“We’ve been here 26 years. It’s been a lovely location and a great street,” she says.
Built in the early 1900s, this three-bedroom suburban home is situated on the quiet, leafy Ninth Avenue.
The wide front verandah is a great spot to have a cuppa in the morning and for an aperitif after a hard day at work.
The entrance to the house has a lovely domed ceiling and stained glass front door, adding a nice burst of colour.
French doors provide access to the formal lounge/dining area, a dignified space with an attractive cast iron fireplace. There’s a second set of french doors that open onto a wrap-around side verandah.
Two of the bedrooms have deep window seats where you can enjoy delightful views of the front garden.
In the modern extension is the spacious living/dining/kitchen area.
The original wood-fire oven has been replaced by a huge and modern Ilve oven, flanked by white cupboards and a big pull-out pantry.
White stone benchtops and a spacious bench/breakfast bar overlook the family room.
Entertaining a gaggle of teenagers is as easy as opening the french doors to the garden, which has a pool and a large swathe of grass.
A brick garage at the bottom of the garden is accessed off a rear right-of-way, and there’s more parking at the front of the home.
This lovely family home is a 10-minute walk from the Beaufort Street cafe strip and it’s not much further to the cafes and shops on Eighth Avenue.
