THEY call it the “Castle on Capri”.
Situated on an elevated block in Dianella, the two “turrets” flanking the stylish balcony certainly have the air of a suburban castle; perhaps a remnant of when architecture took chances and everything wasn’t a cookie-cutter 4×2.
I imagine the owners enjoyed sitting on the balcony, gazing at the Eastern hills in the distance, while the soft clouds rolled across the horizon.
It’s the first time this four bedroom two bathroom home has been on the market and there’s plenty of surprises and highlights to enjoy.
With it’s parquetry flooring, decadent red drapes, Chesterfield couch and dark wooden furniture, the formal sunken lounge has tons of personality, perhaps hinting the owners lived up to the “Castle on Capri” moniker.
The kitchen has been renovated in a U-shape design, with granite-style benchtops contrasting with white cupboards and drawers.
The gas fire in the family room is a bit dated, but it has a lovely mantle and could easily be turned into a real talking point.
Likewise the curtains and pelmet is a bit old fashioned, but the glass sliding doors and windows let in plenty of natural light.
Out the back there is a large sheltered alfresco with neat brickwork, and the roof looks in top condition.
This area is huge with plenty of scope for putting in a pizza oven or an outdoor setting for relaxing and socialising with friends.
Surrounding the alfresco is a pretty raised garden bed with flowers and trees, softening the garden fence and shed.
There’s an ensuite bedroom with walk-in robe on the ground floor, as well as a formal dining room and lounge.
The three upstairs bedrooms are a decent size, have built-in robes and are well maintained, with two having access via French doors to the balcony.
Again some bits and pieces in the bedrooms are a bit dated, but the bones are good and it’s all cosmetic changes the buyer could do after moving in.
There’s also a bathroom and WC on the second level.
You won’t be tripping over each other in this home, which has a variety of living areas and plenty of space for the modern family, as well as a garage and room for four cars.
The house includes a seperate laundry, evaporative AC throughout and easy-care gardens.
Situated on a whopping 802sqm block on Capri Place, you are close to lots of cafes and shops including the Plaza and IGA Noranda, as well as schools like North Morley and Dianella Heights Primary Schools.
This family home has tons of character with a striking facade and glorious views.
