IT doesn’t get easier than this. This Mount Lawley home is situated in the heart of the suburb, just 100m from the main strip.
Offering convenience, character and potential, this three-bedroom, one-bathroom original residence will appeal to many for its charm, space, and easy, metropolitan lifestyle.
The 384sqm block is nicely spread, has a simple floor plan and plenty of rooms and spaces ideal for relaxing and entertaining.
Such space configuration and size mean this home would easily suit a small family, individual or several roommates.
The front is gated by a bricked wall, separating the residence from the nearby liveliness of Mount Lawley precinct. Its also creates a designated front area, where you can enjoy the veranda and greenery out front for yourself. The Chook sees the veranda as a prime outdoor lounge location.
Entering the house you’re welcomed by wonderous wooden floors.
Bedrooms are sizable and include a fireplace, those wooden floors, beautiful period ceilings with wide cornices and double-hung windows. There are endless options with configuring these bedrooms which is always appreciated. And the views of the sunny front yard are there to be enjoyed too.
The living room is cosy and comes with a corner fireplace, while the kitchen and a modern extension make the heart of the house. Its layout is inviting, with the natural light pouring in at many angles.
The kitchen achieves a stylish feel with the slanted, timber roofing and feature side wall windows. I think the timbre colouring and minimal modern features of the kitchen create an Ikea/Nordic feel.
There are two handy larde pantries and to the side is also a laundry space, which feels a little squished but was probably attached to the original structure.
It is at the tip of this open living space and the dining area you see where the old structure meets the new. The room has crisp, white walls, and dark tiled flooring and with its provided space will help cater bigger number events.
Outside there’s decking for a proper-size barbecue with your mates, a small garden and lawn area, and a couple of parking spots accessible from the laneway at the rear.
You shouldn’t need the car much when running errands, as it’s a stroll to the thriving Mount Lawley scene. There is countless restaurants and cafes, an IGA, studio pilaties, a chemist and much more. Bus stops are everywhere on the main strip. East Perth Train station is close too. Perth College, Edith Cowen University and North Metro tafes are also just some of the nearby schools.
The property could easily be the perfect blank canvas for a renovation transformation if its new owners desired.
But with many nice touches in place waiting to be utilised, the home is definitely move-in ready.
And with its convenient, enviable, rare location, this easy going home will easily tick the box of the person with an urban itch, but who requires space and greenery.
