11 Birdwood Circus East,
SOLD UNDER THE HAMMER!Set on a generous corner block across from a gloriously green John Dickenson Reserve, this home is flanked by the most majestic mature trees; flame, eucalyptus, jacaranda and peppermint trees sit comfortably in its beautifully manicured garden and play a pivotal role in moderating the temperature of this elegantly restored 1930s bungalow.
This is the quintessential family residence with abundant indoor and outdoor considerations in a safe and friendly neighbourhood.
The original part of the home forms the street facade followed by a smart extension that adds seamless flow to this family residence.
High ceilings respect the bones of the original home and add a feeling of space and calm, while rich polished jarrah floorboards carry on the sense of history and solidity of the home.
From the protected north-facing front porch, you enter a hallway leading to two bedrooms, including the master with its own ensuite fitted with heritage tiles, a spacious second bedroom and an original sitting room, with gas outlet for a fire. The sitting room extends to what is currently a light-filled home office.
Connected to the original home is the main attraction - a gloriously light and airy open-plan living dining and kitchen, equipped with island bench, walk-in pantry, Bosch oven and 4-burner gas stove top and framed by elegant art deco-style windows. Another gas outlet, ideal for a large gas fire, is fitted in the open plan living area, making it a natural gathering point for friends and family for year-round entertaining and relaxing.
Serene and peaceful dappled light is enjoyed from this area via timber-rimmed double doors and windows which lead to an elevated north-facing deck and private garden - again its main feature is a majestic flametree which acts as a shady canopy.
The eastern addition to the home carries through the high ceilings and provides two generously proportioned bedrooms with built in robes joined by a generous, modern bathroom with terracotta tiles, endless light and a discreet window overlooking trees and rooftops.
A generous laundry with folding bench space and storage leads to a discreet drying courtyard away from view. Opposite the laundry is a walk-in linen press of grand proportions. Not only will it store a family's-worth of linen, but act as a home for toys, games, shoes and much more. A stairwell leads to what could be a wine cellar which is joined to a below ground lock-up garage.
With the ambient bird-life and several outdoor retreats to sit and enjoy time alone or in the company of others, this home offers a comfortable and relaxed appeal which lends itself to a growing family. Amenities nearby include Bicton Central, Stammers and Woolworths supermarkets, and Coles Melville. Nearby schools include Bicton Primary.
Homes like this are a rare treat and retain a historic reminder of our past.
