You’ll never again need to borrow a cup of sugar from the neighbours.
This family home is situated perfectly to accomplish on foot all your errands.
Garden city shopping centre is 500m to the right, Applecross senior high is across the road and the Riseley Street cafe strip and scenic foreshore just a short walk away.
But what’s on the inside counts too and this 1950s 5×2 home has plenty of charm.
Sitting on 496sqm, its simple decor features cream walls and chocolate floorboards throughout.
While a peppering of quirky features ensures no room is without character.
The main bedroom is large and full of natural light.
A funky wardrobe, which covers an entire wall, affords plenty of extra storage, a mirror and dressing table.
A midnight stumble away is the bathroom which is modest but functional and quirked-up with decorative tiles.
This home is perfect for parents looking for a bit of space as the kids’ bedrooms are towards the back. The home could easily be divided to give the little tykes their own living area and bathroom.
The kitchen lives right in the centre of the home and has been renovated to form the perfect family hub where old and young can meet halfway.
It features a dishwasher, gas cooking and plenty of storage to make whipping up school lunches a breeze.
The passage weaves through the house in such a way the main living area is tucked away and private. It’s huge and easily fits a lounge, TV and dining table.
The second bedroom—it’s large—shares a wall, which could easily come down to extend the space even more, if you don’t need five bedrooms.
Outside features red brick-paving and hardly any garden. The front is kept simple with a patch of lawn and a few plants and flowers. While the back patio—with a little sprucing—could make a fantastic entertaining area. Ducted air-conditioning throughout means there’s little need to brave the summer heat if you’d prefer to stay inside. This house is low maintenance and will suit busy people with an appreciation for old-fashioned charm.
