Sometimes a home has one or two great talking points – but this Mt Lawley abode has loads.
There’s a dining room with a hung sliding door, a beautiful vintage fireplace in the lounge, and black hexagonal tiles in the ensuite.
I could gone on, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves and start outside.
This four bedroom two bathroom house has that classic Mt Lawley look – white picket fence, lovely garden and a cute porch beckoning you inside.
An old-school formal hallway leads to rooms with high ceilings and polished jarrah floorboards.
I really love the lounge at the front of the house – the walls are painted regal blue, accentuating the white picture rail and cornicing. Rounding off things is a heritage fireplace with a lovely grate and wooden mantle.
It’s a gorgeous, relaxing room to enjoy a coffee with friends or relax with a book. The open plan kitchen/living area has a lovely tiled floor and masses of benchspace to prepare a meal. It overlooks the back garden and is flooded with natural light, making it feel very airy and bright.
The kitchen includes black cabinetry, European appliances and a large walk-in pantry. The owners have good style and everything has been done with a sense of restraint and elegance.
All the bedrooms are spacious and well appointed, with the main featuring a walk-in robe and a stunning ensuite with gorgeous black hexagonal tiles, brass taps and wooden cabinets. In a decadent touch, the seperate WC even has wallpaper!
Once dinner’s ready, slide back the hung sliding doors in the living area and walk into the dining room. I’m a bit old school and still like a seperate dining area where you can eat as a family, out of sight of the stove.
After a quick bight to eat, open the bi-fold doors and head out to the patio, which has a good-sized entertaining area with a fire pit. If you fancy something a bit more formal, there’s another alfresco around the side with a huge shade sail and dinner table.
There’s a large patch of grass for kids to play on out here, and some shady trees create a nice ambience. This home includes off-street parking for two cars, reticulated gardens and a seperate laundry.
Situated on a 632sqm block on Fifth Avenue, this abode is close to all the cafes and shops on Beaufort Street, is in the catchment area for Mt Lawley primary and secondary schools, and is only a short bus ride from the city.
This is an elegant family home in a great location.
