MAYLANDS is one of the prettiest suburbs in Perth.
The art deco buildings, river foreshore and lush parks all combine to create a sense of well-being and relaxation.
You’re still close to the city, but the suburb doesn’t have that hemmed-in feeling you often get in Mt Lawley.
There’s loads of space in this four bedroom, three bathroom home, which is situated on a 825m block beside De Lacy Reserve and the Swan River in Maylands.
Forget about all those cream-rendered clones, this home has a bold brick facade with more than a passing nod to the old Maylands brickworks down the road.
A nice bullnose verandah sets off the front garden, creating a stylish entry statement.
The large lounge and open-plan living space has gorgeous wooden floors and high ceilings, and is a great place to relax.
This area overlooks the large garden, with windows letting in plenty of natural light.
There’s a big office on the ground floor (which could be utilised as a fifth bedroom if you have lots of kids) and a family-sized laundry with shower and powder room.
Out the back is a large swathe of grass for children to play on, with plenty of room for playground equipment and a trampoline.
There’s even a cute lookout platform the owners have installed on a pretty tree looming over the garden.
This feels like a lovely open space with loads of potential to add extra things or leave unspoiled.
After a run around the garden, kickback in the sheltered alfresco which has plenty of room for a barbecue, pizza oven and an outdoor lounge setting.
All the bedrooms are upstairs.
The spacious main has an ensuite bathroom with double vanities, a walk-in wardrobe and French doors opening to reveal stunning views of De Lacy Reserve.
The three other bedrooms are a great size (two have built-in robes) and share a family bathroom.
Situated on Richard Street, this home is close to Maylands primary school and within walking distance of the train station, Eighth Avenue/Whatley Crescent precinct, a supermarket and loads of other amenities.
This is a huge house which has not been over-developed, so there’s an opportunity to put your own stamp on things.
