THIS Hilton home is demure and restrained.
There’s no vulgar design features or crass finishes and it has a lot of self-confidence.
Originally built in 1949, it has been extensively renovated with modern amenities, cedar cladding and double-glazed windows.
The end result is a very tranquil four bedroom two bathroom abode, situated on a spacious 686sqm block, which is probably the optimal size for an average family.
The high ceilings and polished floors in the open plan living/ dining area look classy and create a sense of space.
A lovely open fireplace finishes off the lounge nicely, with bi-fold doors offering relaxing views of the garden.
The sense of space is enhanced by the skylight in the dining area, which floods the room with natural light.
I’m a sucker for galley kitchens and this house has a beauty with aquablue tiles and a glorious retro-looking Belling oven and double-drawer dishwasher.
It’s very much in the country style and has tons of character.
Bi-fold doors in the large living room open the home out to the garden, which is full of attractive shrubs and plants.
In fact the home has plenty of outdoor space with a mixture of paved and grassed areas for the kids to play on.
There’s also a decent alfresco area for dining outside in the warmer months.
You can see why Hilton is called the garden suburb with plenty of verdure in this garden.
Three of the bedrooms are spacious with the main featuring a walk-in robe, while the fourth is best suited as a child’s room or a study.
The family bathroom has a shower, wc and vanity, and there’s a combined laundry bathroom at the rear of the home.
The home includes split system AC, gas hot water, insulated walls, shutters, and has parking for three cars.
Situated on Carrington Street on the Beaconsfield border, you are minutes from Fremantle and South Beach and have easy access to public transport, various cafes and a choice of good schools.
This is a lovely character home in a great spot close to Fremantle.
