West Leederville, WA
CLASSIC CHARACTER HOME TO MAKE YOUR OWNAll the convenience and charm of leafy West Leederville are part of the package with this beautiful and spacious family home, steeped in history and ready for new owners.
A rendered perimeter wall encloses a private low-maintenance courtyard you can enjoy from the shady wraparound verandah. The exterior is rich in character, with red brick walls and the tiled roof complemented by greenery and rustic paving.
Inside, you'll find elegant living spaces with lots of period features including fireplaces, high ceilings, jarrah floorboards and ornate ceiling roses.
A study just off the entrance has built-in desks and is ideal for a home-based business, or could alternatively be converted into a fourth bedroom. There are an additional three bedrooms, including a master bedroom with high ceilings and a fireplace, overlooking the front courtyard. The bathroom is in keeping with the heritage style and has a deep claw-foot bathtub and a separate shower.
Living areas are generous and link up beautifully for easy entertaining. The impressive formal living room has an original fireplace and French doors, and leads through to the dining area and kitchen.
Both attractive and functional, the modern kitchen has lots of bench space, crisp white cabinetry and quality appliances including a built-in Blanco wall oven and microwave, a Smeg cooktop, and a Fisher & Paykel two-drawer dishwasher.
The adjacent dining area will ensure family meals are a breeze to serve and clear up afterwards, while the verandah just outside is a lovely spot for relaxed weekend barbecues or long table lunches.
Downstairs is a second, informal lounge room, with steps down to the courtyard garden, another low-maintenance yet inviting and leafy spot, with space for entertaining or kids to play.
Other great features include a laundry and powder room off the downstairs lounge, a clothes-drying courtyard, and a double carport with rear laneway access, along with a wine cellar beneath the house.
As well as being in a sought-after suburb, the location within West Leederville is superb - minutes from the shops, train station, school and parks that make this postcode such a gem.
