THIS Third Avenue house is quintessential Mount Lawley.
Leadlight windows, period fireplaces, jarrah floorboards and Metters stove – it’s literally an A to Z of what you would expect from a character house in the suburb.
But this two bedroom one bathroom has also got a few tricks up its sleeve, including a 524sqm block with large garden, established fruit trees, vegetable patch and fish and frog ponds.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves – what’s the actual interior like?
Well it’s a charming affair with a beautiful entrance hallway and gorgeous architrave chaperoning you into the lounge.
The Voice loves how the owners have gone for a subtle buttermilk colour on the walls; it really adds a lovely warmth and makes the floorboards and polished wooden mantel pop.
So many new builds go with the boring old magnolia paint, creating a never-ending production line of bland houses that have all the charm of a shovel.
The lounge has a gorgeous period fireplace complemented by some rugs and plantation-style shutters on the windows.
Rounding things off is some lovely cornicing, which adds depth to the room.
The farmhouse-style kitchen makes lovely use of wood on the benchtops and cupboards, showing off the natural grain to full effect.
The kitchen has the best of both worlds – a modern cooker in the corner and a Metters stove in a little recess, adding a lovely heritage touch to the room.
Both bedrooms are a decent size and have fireplaces, giving them a stylish air of yesteryear, with the second featuring built-in robes.
So often these type of character homes are let down by dated bathrooms where the owners have run out of cash.
Thankfully in this home the bathroom is a cracker with lovely subway tiles, a standalone bath/shower and floating cupboards/vanity.
With summer on our doorstep, you’ll be enjoying that glorious back garden, tending to the veggie patch and hosting late night gatherings around the fire pit.
There’s a lovely flame tree in the corner and a big patch of lawn that could accomodate a smallish pool or you could leave as is.
In the rear corner of the garden is a large brick, powered workshop, where dad can tinker with his hammer and tools.
A bonus is the workshop’s floored loft which means you have loads of storage space.
It really is a lovely garden and there is a wide sheltered patio where you can relax with family and friends with a drink and some nibbles.
There’s also a verandah in the front private garden, if you fancy a quiet coffee or a change of scene.
Built in 1917, this green title home includes a rear right of way, re-wired electrics, two 2000L rain water tanks with pump, new fencing on all sides and 6.5kw solar panels.
Situated on Third Avenue, you are close to all the cafes on Coode Street and a short walk from the train station, Perth College and Beaufort Street.
This stylish Mt Lawley home is beautifully presented and will be snapped up quickly.
