IT’S a cliche but first impressions count – and this Coolbinia house has a lovely curved verandah that conjures up images of Hercule Poirot and a bygone era.
There’s also a sweeping staircase and ornate balustrade, confirming that this three bedroom one bathroom property has loads of character.
The charm offensive continues inside with jarrah floors, high ceilings and timber-framed windows.
There’s a nice feel about this house with period touches likes cornicing and ceiling medallions blending effortlessly with modern appliances and technology.
The kitchen has been beautifully renovated with natural wood cabinetry and Gaggenau appliances.
It’s a refreshing and eye-catching change as most kitchens these days are a bit cookie-cutter with white cupboards and grey-flecked benchtops.
The kitchen/dining open-plan area is cute with some stylish pendant lights setting the area off nicely. Call me old fashioned but I like how the living room is semi open-plan and it feels like you are in a different space from the kitchen and dining area.
All three bedrooms are well appointed and the main has a stylish set of built-in robes with gorgeous wooden doors.
There’s a huge swathe of grass out the back, which has been well maintained and looks in great condition.
The back garden is largely unspoiled with a row of semi-mature trees offering shade on one side, and small shrubs and plants lining a fence on the other.
It really is a blank canvas and there’s heaps of space to put in an alfresco and a pool, or even a granny flat for extra accomodation.
The bonus is there is no existing structures to demolish and the lawn is in great condition.
If you want to leave as is, then it will be low maintenance with automated bore reticulation doing all the work.
The home includes a laundry, rewired electrics, R3.5 insulation, underground power, 3M window tinting and an alarm system.
There’s also a garage at the front of the house and a large driveway with room for three cars.
Situated on a huge 812sqm block on Lanark Street, you are close to Beaufort Street, North Perth and Mount Hawthorn, and in the school catchment zone for Coolbinia Primary and Mount Lawley High Schools.
