WHEN you’re house hunting you usually find the right home in the wrong place or vice versa.
But this beautiful Mt Lawley abode has loads of character and is in a killer location.
Situated on Vincent Street, Hyde Park is pretty much on your doorstep (you can see it from the front garden) and it’s a two-minute walk to all the shops and restaurants on Beaufort Street.
This character home has been completed renovated to a high standard; but don’t worry, all the gorgeous heritage features are still there, including polished jarrah floorboards and vintage fireplaces.
The end result is a sympathetic reno that combines the best of old and new.
Things start off well as you walk inside and are greeted by a lovely decorative archway in the wide central hallway.
You may be in the inner-city, but you instantly relax as you pass through spacious rooms with extra high ceilings.
All three bedrooms are large, with two featuring built-in wardrobes and air conditioning.
The house has a lovely neutral colour scheme that perfectly complements the polished jarrah floorboards in the bedrooms and lounge, which has a vintage fire place.
Whipping up meals will be a breeze in the large kitchen which has a nice breakfast bar overlooking an open plan dining/living area (unusual for a character home).
The bathroom features a lovely stained glass-style window and has a shower/bath.
Public transport is not far away, but there’s room for three cars in the carport and driveway.
The house has an electric gate, enclosed front garden and is in the Highgate Primary School catchment area.
If you want the best of old and new in a superb inner-city location, check this one out.
