OLD MEETS NEW IN RENOVATED DELIGHTWhat lies beyond the turned veranda posts and spectacular leadlight feature front door of this 1914 red brick federation home is an impressive extension that makes the heart skip a beat.
It's amazing what you can fit on 294sqm with an active imagination and a serious eye for design. While two large bedrooms and a second living room in the front section of this home retain character features such as ornate cornicing, high ceilings, polished jarrah floors and a fireplace, the rear extension beautifully blends the old with the new for comfortable and convenient modern-day living.
A remarkable double-height void, timber-framed bifold doors, and extensive use of louvres flood the open plan kitchen, living and dining spaces with natural light and provide maximum solar passive exposure to allow airflow even on the warmest of days.
A family bathroom with luxurious freestanding tub and rain shower discreetly shares its space with a European-style laundry tucked away behind sliding doors.
Complete with stone benchtops, contemporary lift-up and soft-close cabinetry, and integrated wall oven, microwave and induction cooktop from premier European brand Fagor, the kitchen is fit for the most competent home-chef as well as those looking for ease of use.
The ultimate in indoor-outdoor living, bifold doors spanning the entire width of the home open out to connect the main living areas with a rear decked alfresco and low-maintenance garden that makes the most of the warm winter sun.
Ascending the traditional white and dark wood staircase, you'll arrive at the second floor that is home to another bedroom, home office (fifth bedroom), and magnificent master suite. The epitome of indulgence, the master features a large walk-in robe, a stunning ensuite with double rain shower, treetop views above the garden, and tall cathedral-style windows overlooking the dining space.
Attention to detail is second-to-none, with stand-out features including commercial-grade ducted air-conditioning that can be individually controlled in each room, ceiling fans throughout, seamless stainless steel linear shower grates, dormer windows, and gabled ceilings.
Additional amenities include a garden shed, internal attic storage, and two parking permits plus two visitor permits.
Within walking distance of both train lines and with direct access to Leederville and West Leederville cafe strips, this is a home that must be seen to be truly appreciated for its beauty.
