THIS renovated Hilton home is a fine example of mid-century modern design.
As you approach the front door you are greeted by a spacious verandah, where you can enjoy views of the leafy streets and glimpses of the Indian Ocean.
The verandah is the perfect spot to take in a breathtaking sunset and roosting birds as you wind down after a hard day’s work.
The same vista can be enjoyed from the huge windows in the generous living area.
Mellow jarrah gleams underfoot in this three-bedroom home, especially in the lounge, which morphs into the kitchen and dining area in a semi-open plan.
The recently renovated kitchen is gleaming white with white stone waterfall-edge benchtops, a large glass splashback and crisp white cupboards.
A corner cupboard has an ingenious pull-out system of drawers that allows access to hard-to-reach areas.
High above the dining area, two newly installed skylights flood the space with natural light.
More light pours in through a wall of glass and french doors at the rear, which provide access to the garden and timber-decked alfresco.
Tucked around the corner is a modern, semi-open laundry.
It’s partially open to the garden, so you can enjoy nature in full-bloom while washing your undies.
There’s a generous 6.5kW solar panel system, so power bills won’t be a problem.
Limestone terraces lead to an area with faux grass and low-maintenance garden beds.
Wine fans will be happy to know that there is a limestone cellar under the front verandah.
Situated on Ethelwyn Street, this 443sqm property is just up the road from a pocket park and there’s a choice of shops within walking distance.
