Picture perfect 

THE Voice has reviewed a lot of homes over the years, but the formal lounge in this Bayswater property really took our breath away.

It has a bevy of classic features – vintage fireplace, leadlight windows, ornate cornicing, ceiling medallions – and was perfectly furnished with a flamboyant twist.

That came courtesy of the period furniture which had arresting pinky red upholstery that really brought the room to life and added a modern swish of colour.

There’s a lovely symmetry to this room with two leadlight windows either side of the fireplace creating the illusion of a pretty face, and another window on the side wall, ensuring plenty of natural light.

Situated on Railway Parade, the rest of this two bedroom two bathroom Californian-style bungalow is really impressive.

There’s a very large, contemporary kitchen with loads of cupboards and drawers and some modern stainless steel appliances.

I like how virtually everything is white in the kitchen, giving it a very minimalist, almost futuristic look. Another plus point is space – the home is on a whopping 819sqm full block with a humongous back garden.

There’s an L-shaped alfresco/patio with a huge dinner table that has no doubt seen some special family gatherings over the years. There’s also a big lawn, established trees and even the odd chook galavanting about.

There’s plenty of nooks and crannies in this garden for kids to play hide-and-seek and a delightful cubby house off to the side. Dad won’t be bored either with a large workshop, shed, garage and wood shed.

The possibilities are endless for the back garden – you could keep it a rustic delight or put in a monster pool and a whole new entertaining area.

There’s also a verandah out the front and another patch of lawn, giving you a second area to quietly read a book and get away from things.

The home includes a 5m-plus driveway with access to the rear, bore reticulated gardens, two renovated bathrooms and three AC split systems.

Situated in a mixed-use zone (RAC3 density) on Railway Parade, the home is metres from Inglewood and it’s a short walk to all the pubs, cafes and restaurants on Eighth Avenue.

It’s also in the Inglewood primary catchment and near Meltham train station.

This is a lovely character home with a fantastic formal lounge and huge back garden.
