THEY call Hilton the “Garden Suburb” and this home lives up to that moniker with mature trees, landscaped gardens and stylish potted plants.
It creates the feeling of a leafy and peaceful retreat where you are sheltered from the hectic pace of 21st century life.
Normally character homes are a bit pokey, but this Paget Street abode has five bedrooms and two bathrooms on a 508sqm lot – so you get the best of both worlds and are just up the road from Fremantle.
The hub of this two storey home is the delightful open plan living/dining/kitchen area which has beautiful corbels, leadlight windows and a wood burner in the corner.
The sense of atmosphere is enhanced by the wide jarrah floorboards, ceiling roses and light colour scheme.
It’s a beautiful living area and I imagine you would spend lots of time in here with the family.
There’s more gorgeous leadlight windows in the cute kitchen, which features granite benchtops, a pull-out pantry, a free-standing range hood and plenty of cupboard space.
It’s a lovely spot to whip up meals for family and guests.
Once dinner is ready, open the leadlight French doors and walk onto the sheltered deck, which has enough room for a dining table and sofa.
The deck overlooks a chocolate box cottage garden with brick paving and a neat lawn surrounded by shrubs, ornamentals and fruit trees.
It really is a very relaxing and pleasant spot with lots of verdure and shade.
There’s also an additional alfresco, shaded by mature trees, where the owners have a stylish dining table to eat under the stars.
I could imagine having meals out here on summer nights once the sun has dipped below the horizon.
In total there’s a whopping five outdoor living areas in this home including a beautiful courtyard, giving you loads of options depending on the time of year and weather.
There’s more – you guessed it – leadlight windows in the bedrooms and bathrooms, which are all elegant and tastefully fitted-out.
The main bathroom is a beauty with a bath set in marble, right below a lovely artdeco-style window.
It would be the ultimate place to relax after a hard day in the office.
The home’s second storey extension has a children’s zone with a newly renovated bathroom with blackbutt feature wall, raw edge vanity and floor-to-ceiling tiles.
The property includes a home office, two-car driveway, and three sheds and under-house storage.
This is the best of both worlds – a delightful character home that has loads of space for the growing family.
