Easy living on Petra

THE Latins probably would have dubbed this Bicton townhouse a tabula rasa (clean slate) because it is ready for new owners to move in and make it their own.

Walls are white, a solitary lemon tree sits in a large courtyard and the place is clean at every turn of the head.

You could move in, drop your bags and be home: nothing to do other than switch on the TV and watch the Dockers give someone a belting.

It’s also a perfect no-fuss, easy-maintenance pad for avid travellers. The sort of home you can happily lock and leave while you wander the world a while. I imagine many potted plants lining the alfresco dining area as well as a few more edible friends for the lemon tree. What is more inspiring for an avid chef than to look out from a kitchen to a green view?

The large galley kitchen has stainless-steel appliances and overlooks the living area. Upstairs are three bedrooms.

The biggest attraction is the location and price tag—what a rare find.

A short walk south from this eight-year-old house are shops, restaurants, and Canning Highway with buses zooming past going to the city and Fremantle.

In the opposite direction lies the river and Swan yacht club.
