A limestone wall shaped like a crocodile and ocean-coloured paint give this Hilton home a relaxing beach cottage feel.
Situated on a leafy street and tucked behind mature shrubs, the wide timber verandah adds to the beach-house feel.
It’s also a great spot to pluck mulberries with a heavily fruiting tree in arm’s reach.
The stylishly renovated three/four-bedroom home has new jarrah-framed windows, high ceilings and chocolatey jarrah floors.
Three of the bedrooms have bifold doors and are at the front of the house, creating a separate “sleeping” zone.
There’s golden timber benchtops and an island in the spacious kitchen, which has loads of white cupboards and drawers.
Tucked into the old wood-oven alcove, a pot-belly chucks out enough heat to warm the entire open-plan, ensuring the living area is a cosy space on chilly days.
But with warmer ones on the way, the new owners will be peeling back the bifold doors to make the most of a huge timber deck alfresco with a roof and cafe blinds.
Sitting on 426sqm this subdivided property has plenty of room for kids to play, with vine-covered fences ensuring privacy.
Which is just as well as there is a hot and cold outdoor shower.
At the rear of the home is a separate sitting room, which could be a bedroom, with french doors opening onto the deck.
One of two bathrooms has a modern take on the old clawfoot bath, which is large enough for a communal dip.
Situated on Rennie Crescent South, this is a great family home, with Hilton Primary School across the road, and shops, the PCYC and a lovely cafe nearby.
