A sense of style

FRUIT junkies will love the massive fig tree in the front garden of this White Gum Valley home.

There is of course more to like about this three-bedroom/two-bathroom house, but as someone eyeing the ripe fruit, I’m just saying.

Built in the 1960s, the home has been renovated into a 21st century family home with a gorgeous Mediterranean look and eclectic feel.

Walls were knocked out and rooms rejigged to create a spacious open-plan with a huge central kitchen.

Mediterranean

There’s masses of storage, including a walk-in-pantry/storeroom behind the kitchen.

“I love all the many drawers everywhere: there’s more storage than we can just about fill,” the owner says.

The kitchen has crisp white cupboards and benchtops that are framed by a colourful tiled splash back.

Almost floor-to-ceiling glass doors lead to the garden and al fresco; a shady Mediterranean space with a grapevine-covered pergola, a bold ochre feature wall and a hot and cold shower.

Elevated above street level, the salt-water pool is in a secluded area, shaded by a couple of mature, flowering frangipanis.

Sitting on 599sqm on a corner block, there’s a swathe of grass for the kids to play on and a man cave to end all man caves.

Lined up like ducks in a row, the three bedrooms and bathrooms form a “wing” at the rear of the home.

The main bedroom is a generous space with huge picture windows and views of the leafy valley.

This delightful Watkins Street home is a short walk from Booyeembara Park, the primary school and golf course, and there’s a cafe just up the road.

South Beach is just seven minutes by car, and the Fremantle CBD a mere four.
