IMAGINE a VW Beetle with an electric motor under the hood.
Then you’re getting close to this limestone character home, which was built in 2018 with a solar passive design and an 8.2 energy rating.
It’s a stylish mix of old and new with the best of both worlds.
Featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms, there are loads of lovely character features including a bull nose veranda, timber deck and exposed brickwork.
One of the highlights is the open plan living/dining/kitchen area, which features a gorgeous gable roof with wooden panels, a limestone feature wall and stylish triangular window.
Underpinning it all are some large classy floor tiles and a stylish kitchen with westinghouse cooktop, rangehood and electric oven.
I like how the cupboards and drawers in the kitchen are a subtle green/blue shade as too often people go with the safe and slightly boring white.
It reinforces the sense of character in the home and that you’re not buying some cookie-cutter 4×2.
The bedrooms carry on the good character work with exposed brick walls, built-in robes and sliding barn doors.
The main has a nice ensuite and the third bedroom is currently being used as a study/home office; perfect with so many of us now working remotely.
The family bathroom and laundry have been combined and it’s a pleasant space with a large shower.
The pretty front yard is quintessential Hilton – lush and green with plenty of native shrubs, bushes and waterwise plants.
It’s fully reticulated with a nice sunken pit for cosy gatherings with family and friends.
This would be a welcome sanctuary after a hard day at work.
The home has good green credentials with a 3.1kW solar panel system and a 222L heat pump water heater.
Situated on a 300sqm survey-strata lot on Thornett Street with two parking spaces, you are close to Gilberts Fresh Produce and Charlies Coffee Shop in the Hilton Shopping Precinct, and it’s less than 500m to Hilton Primary School and a short drive to Fremantle and South Beach.
This cute Hilton home is a lovely mix of old and new.
8 Thornett Street, Hilton
