THERE’S an English look and feel to this home in Coogee Place, Mount Pleasant.
Maybe it’s the pitched roof, or the ivy-covered walls and rather Georgian arched portico over the front door.
Or perhaps it’s the vendors’ stamp on this architecturally designed abode.
Sponsors of the annual Blackwood River Chamber Festival, their love of fine music is evident throughout this five-bedroom/three-bathroom dwelling.
Retirement and a tree-change is the only reason they’re selling this amazingly roomy home.
The light-filled, open-plan living/dining/kitchen is a delight in white from the tiled floor to the walls and the travertine bench tops and bank of cupboards in the kitchen.
With a breakfast bar as well there’s oodles of preparation surfaces, along with cupboards and drawers a plenty, including a floor-to-ceiling double pantry.
Walls of glass and doors off the dining area look onto a fantastic courtyard garden.
With a soaring, curved, alsynite roof and a lushly planted garden it’s a delightful spot to entertain, or simply relax with a good book—or strum a harp (you’ll need to bring your own the one in the music room is heading south with the vendors).
French doors close off the music room (or formal lounge), ensuring the maestro is not disturbed by anything as plebeian as TV.
The main bedroom is upstairs, a huge space with walk-in-robes.
A smaller bedroom next door could become a parents’ sitting room.
The street-facing bedroom has a lovely arched floor-to-ceiling door onto a cute balcony.
The soon-to-be-finished Fiona Stanley Hospital is just down the road, as is Murdoch University (and Curtin’s not too far either).
Booragoon’s Garden City is a stone’s throw in the other direction, and there’s no shortage of boutique shops, cafes and restaurants close by.
Or wander down to the bottom of the road to enjoy the natural environment with a gentle river foreshore stroll.
