THIS Coolbinia home begins with a nod to Perth’s illustrious past.
The lead light panels on the front door are a replica of those in the first Plunkett family home built in Perth circa 1910.
The owners loved the originals so much they had them reproduced.
This attention to detail is continued throughout this four bedroom two bathroom house, which combines gorgeous federation architecture with modern day luxury.
The open plan kitchen/dining/living area is nice and bright, and features a vintage-style fireplace, coffered ceiling and another stunning lead light window.
The stylish kitchen is humongous with a huge island bench and a swathe of white drawers and cupboards. You would never run out of preparation space here.
If you love your vino then this house is a must – it has a fully-insulated and shelved wine cellar, which was nicely stocked with bottles when the Voice had a sneaky peek inside.
I doubt they’ll be included in the sale, but you can always ask as there were a few crackers in there.
Throughout the property the decorative ceilings, cornicing and corbelled arches are sure to turn heads. It’s all very elegant and tasteful.
Head outside and and relax in the spacious, sheltered alfresco, which overlooks a neat back garden with a motif feature wall.
There’s a second alfresco at the side of the garden; a cabana with enough room for a barbecue and table and chairs.
At large family gatherings this would be a good area for teenage kids, as they have a seperate dining area to stare at their phones and talk about people they fancy at school.
The alfresco overlooks a small strip of grass and a good-sized saltwater pool.
The main bedroom with walk-in robes is downstairs, and the other bedrooms and extra living space are on the first floor. This is a good layout if you have older kids or a growing family.
There’s also a spacious home office on the ground floor, which is becoming more of a necessity these days.
Walking up the wide staircase, with its white bannisters and polished floorboards, there’s shades of Perth’s historic past and just a hint of grandeur.
All the upstairs bedrooms are spacious and fitted-out to a high standard, and there’s a lovely bathroom and WC up here.
The house has reticulated gardens, reversed cycle ducted AC, a large garage, and enough space for four cars.
Situated on a 782sqm block on Holmfirth Street, this home is close to all the cafes and shops on Walcott Street, Sir David Brand School, and Patula Park and Yokine Reserve.
This is a stunning family home.
