AN 822sqm block in a top location in North Perth?
“Tell ‘im he’s dreaming.”
Well actually he’s not, because this four bedroom two bathroom home is on 822sqm of prime land on Bedford Street.
With such a large block there’s a few possibilities for the astute buyer – enjoy the property as is, subdivide the land and sell it, or subdivide and build a 3×2 home to rent or sell.
An added bonus is that all the laborious planning work has already been done with plans and surveys available to view.
But what about the house itself?
Things start off nicely with a pleasant front garden, shaded by large trees, and a nice verandah with Roman-style columns.
Inside, the polished wooden floors have a lovely rich hue that contrast nicely with the cream walls.
The spacious open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area is airy and bright, with metallic ceiling fans adding a contemporary touch.
There’s some nice Bali-style furniture and plantation shutters in the lounge, creating a bit of a colonial vibe.
The kitchen isn’t the biggest I’ve seen, but it’s neat and well appointed with a decent island bench and pendant lights.
After dinner, slide open the humongous bi-fold doors and step onto the sheltered decking.
This superb alfresco overlooks a courtyard-style garden with lots of greenery and shade.
There’s ceiling fans to keep you cool in summer, and it’s a great spot to have friends around for a barbie and drinks.
My favourite feature in this house is the lovely cornicing and ceiling medallions in the bedrooms, which have a stately heritage feel.
One of the bedrooms also has an exquisite lead light window with an art deco design.
The modern bathrooms have a minimalist look with tasteful fittings and a large square shower head.
Doing the washing won’t be a travail, with a huge laundry with heaps of cupboards.
There is a single off-street car bay, but with so much land there is enough room for the whole family to enjoy off-street parking.
Situated across the road from Kyilla Primary School, this home is close to lots of great shops, cafes and restaurants including The Charles Hotel, and around the corner is Kyilla Park, where you can enjoy the Community Farmers Market every Saturday morning.
This is an elegant family home on a huge block with lots of potential.
