THIS Highgate property is a heritage stunner.
From the leadlight windows to the jarrah floorboards, every turn is met with a piece of stylish history.
The Voice’s favourite room is the formal lounge which has a gorgeous period fireplace, high ceilings and a set of leadlight French doors.
Light streams in through the towering windows, accentuating the rich colours on the Chesterfield couch.
An electric guitar and amplifier in the corner hints that the owner likes to rock out in this classic room, which would have great reverb, courtesy of the high decorative ceiling.
The kitchen is another stunner with the bold patterns on the mosaic spalshback complementing the muted white and black tones on the cupboards, island bench and floors.
Another vintage touch is the AGA cooker in the corner; its aged aquamarine doors almost a work of art.
Off to the side of the kitchen is an alcove with plenty of room for a decent-sized dining table.
Normally these sort of inner-city homes have a cursory garden or a courtyard with raised garden beds, but this beauty is the exception with a large swathe of grass out the back.
It’s a proper garden and perfect for small kids or pets, or you could even put in a splash pool.
In between the grass and the house is a lovely sheltered alfresco with grape vines festooned across a pergola, creating a stylish means of shade.
There’s enough room here for a couch, small dining setting and a BBQ (all you need really).
The bathroom is quite narrow, but the owners have made the most of the space, installing a gorgeous claw foot bath, stylish vanity and mosaic tiles with the same type of bold pattern as found in the kitchen.
It’s all very clean lines and white, making it a minimalist retreat.
All three bedrooms are spacious and well-appointed, and continue the stately feel.
Throughout the property, the Black Japan stained jarrah floorboards add a lovely rich hue to the rooms, complementing the other heritage features.
This three bedroom one bathroom home includes ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning, reticulated gardens, security alarm and hard-wired CCTV, and a carport and three street parking permits.
Situated on a 314sqm green-title block on Smith Street, you are close to all the cafes and restaurants in Highgate, and a short walk from the green open space at Forrest, Jack Marks and Hyde parks.
