IF you like historic buildings with plenty of style, you’ll love this 1930s Parkside property in Mt Lawley.
Situated opposite Hyde Park, the facade is a real jaw-dropper wth lovely arches and plenty of architectural gusto.
The WA Heritage Council were impressed too: “Parkside is an exemplar of the Interwar Mediterranean style of flats, which is one of the most sophisticated designs of its style and period, with a formality and exactness of detail that is noteworthy. The place contributes to the streetscape and demonstrates the attractiveness of apartment life in the latter Interwar period.”
There’s only four apartments in the building, two on the first floor and two on the ground, where apartment two is up for sale.
Sometimes old means poky and impractical, but this apartment has 90sqm of internal living space and a garage accessible from the rear laneway.
The apartment is awash with gorgeous period features including high ornate ceilings, jarrah floorboards, picture rails, lead light windows and a fireplace.
The Voice likes how there is good separation between the open plan living area and the bedrooms, which are tucked away at the rear, overlooking the peaceful gardens.
The bedrooms are big and have picture rails, creating a classy, vintage feel.
There’s even a stylish terrace where you can enjoy meals and drinks, while looking out through the arches.
The home includes air con to the main bedroom, attic storage, gas fireplace, original sash windows, walk-in pantry/internal store room and security screens.
Situated on Vincent Street, opposite Hyde Park, the Beaufort Street strip is a short walk away or jump on the bus to the CBD and enjoy even more nightlife.
And come Sunday, when you want to relax, just open your door and walk across the road to Hyde Park.
This Mt Lawley home will appeal to buyers who value style and history.
