Novel abode  

THIS unique Applecross home has two entry points and enough parking for six cars.

You can enter from the Canning Highway or via a laneway off Collier Street, so family and friends will never have a problem getting parked at big gatherings and celebrations.

With so much paved space at the front of the home there’s plenty of room for a boat, caravan or camper trailer, and you’re just minutes from the Swan River.

Despite being close to the highway this four bedroom two bathroom home feels very secluded and private, with a bullnose verandah, curved-top windows, and a stylish double door creating a pleasant entry statement.

The lounge is the centrepiece of the house with an imposing coffered ceiling with wood panels and an opulent chandelier.

It’s a very elegant area with high ceilings and a neutral colour scheme offsetting the natural wood and brass handles on the doors.

The lounge forms an open plan with the kitchen and dining area.

There’s plenty of space in the kitchen, which has modern appliances, but it might benefit from some new benchtops and cupboard doors.

So there’s a bit of scope to put your own stamp on things.

After dinner open the stylish French doors in the lounge and head out to the lush courtyard which has a nice Balinese-style water feature and lots of lovely screening plants and shrubs.

There’s enough room for a decent alfresco, and the current owners have table and chairs with a market umbrella out here.

There’s also two queen-sized bedrooms on the ground floor – with built-in robes and access to the courtyard – and a bathroom, separate laundry and WC.

A stylish staircase with polished wooden floors leads up to the first floor, which is the parents’ retreat.

Lots of windows ensure plenty of natural light in this peaceful level, which has a spacious main bedroom and a large second bedroom with loads of robe space.

Both bedrooms are adjoined by a gorgeous ensuite with bath, shower and double vanity.

The home includes a double-car garage, reticulated garden, alarm system and lots of storage space.

Situated on a 580sqm block on Canning Highway, this home is in the Applecross Senior High School catchment and is close to loads of shops, restaurants and public transport. It would make a great home for a family who have a boat or caravan, and want to stay in a great suburb close to the freeway and river.
