THE Voice has always had a soft spot for Mount Hawthorn.
You’re still in the inner-city, but it’s slightly removed from all the hustle and bustle with pleny of nice parks and a short walk over the bridge to Lake Monger, where you can really get away from it all.
This Mt Hawthorn home not only looks great but is extremely practical and could be nicknamed “Mr Flexible”.
It has five bedrooms, but you could lose some and have more living areas, depending on your situation (for instance, older kids leaving the nest).
Built in the 1920s, there’s lots of character to the place with gorgeous wide timber floors, a clawfoot bath in the vintage-look bathroom, decorative plasterwork and period fireplaces.
The facade is especially impressive with the wrought-iron fence framing a gorgeous leafy front garden and verandah.
Recent renovations bring the home into line with the 21st century, ensuring you have all the mod cons like air conditioning, remodelled kitchen and a good-sized laundry.
The living airy is nice and bright, courtesy of the large glass doors that lead to the rear landscaped garden. This lovely, relaxing area includes a large patio with plenty of room for a dining table, bbq, pizza oven and lounge setting.
Off to the side is a small garden with a nice patch of grass, raised garden beds and plenty of shade from leafy trees.
There’s enough space for a pub-style wooden bench and chairs (always good if you have older kids who want to socialise).
And let’s not forget about the fish pond; a quaint touch that will always be a favourite with curious kids and guests.
The kitchen is done in a sort of country style with natural wood doors.
It’s nice and practical, but I’d probably go for a more modern lighter look, updating the benchtops and cupboard doors down the line.
Home offices used to be somewhat of a rarity, conjuring up images of CEOs managing their global empire from afar, but post-covid has changed the working landscape and they are now far more common.
Thankfully this home has a decent-sized one with plenty of space to manage your affairs and do Zoom calls without work colleagues glimpsing your undies drying in the background or clothes hanging off the edge of the spare bed.
Both bathrooms are a decent size with the main having a lovely vintage-look.
The home includes split-system AC, potbelly stove, landscaped gardens and a garage with space for two cars.
Situated on a 501sqm block on Anzac Road, you are close to tons of local cafes, shops and restaurants, and it’s just a short walk to Britannia Road Reserve.
