IF this house was a jazz song it would be something off Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue.
It’s got that understated coolness with a demure charm and sense of elegance.
There’s no Roman columns, statues of nude Gods or ostentatious slabs of marble, just simple lines, polished wooden floors and a cool colour scheme in this three bedroom one bathroom Beaconsfield home.
The Chook loves the open plan lounge/dining area: the rich wooden floors and high white ceilings make it feel nice and airy with plenty of space for two large couches and a dining table at the other end of the room.
Tucked around the corner is the galley-style kitchen, where the matt black cupboards and drawers contrast nicely with the white bench tops and appliances, creating a striking monochromatic look.
This is enhanced by some black-and-white floor tiles, which really enhance the checkerboard effect.
It’s a great design flourish that really gives the kitchen a sense of style and originality.
The kitchen includes a large breakfast bar, which is perfect for casual dining and overlooks the sunroom – a versatile area that could be used as an extra living space or as a home office/study.
Come summer, you’ll want to open the sliding doors in the sunroom, which lead out to the private rear patio, where you can enjoy a BBQ with friends and family.
The only place that falls flat and needs a bit of upgrading is the bathroom: the floor and wall tiles are fine, but the bathtub and sink are an odd greenish colour which clashes with the rest of the fixtures and fittings.
The three spacious bedrooms are bright and airy, and all have free standing wardrobes.
This solid 1960s double-brick and tile home includes a laundry and seperate WC, updated kitchen, split system air con, insulated ceilings and a gas bayonet.
Situated on a street front, survey strata 415sqm lot on Gibson Street, your are a short walk from the Dick Lawrence Oval and close to all the local schools and the Beaconsfield Shopping Plaza, which has some great stores like The Grocer and the Chef.
Priced from $730,000, this is a good opportunity for a first time buyer to get a lovely home in a popular suburb close to Fremantle and the beach.
