IDYLLIC FAMILY LIVING IN THE HEART OF WEMBLEYThis grand 1930s home retains all of its charm and offers laidback alfresco living thanks to a sensitive architect-designed renovation that links house and garden.
Located on one of Wembley's peaceful residential streets, it has been extensively renovated by its current owners with architects ROJO Design to create a spacious and flexible family home.
The original front of the house features a main suite and two bedrooms, plus a family bathroom, with lovely high ceilings, stucco walls and jarrah floorboards reflecting the home's Art Deco heritage. The main suite has been fully renovated and now has a walk-in robe and luxury ensuite with freestanding bath and walk-in double shower.
Living areas are flexible and can be opened up or closed depending on mood or season - along with a music room, which comes with a working gas fireplace, and a generous dining area, there's also a family room and a huge kitchen that opens out to the home's best-loved living space - a vast timber deck with a plunge pool, dramatic architectural beam supports and striking long views towards the city, all framed by neighbouring trees.
Bi-fold windows fold back to open up the kitchen, with bench seating outside for easy summer dinners and weekend breakfasts, and subtle lighting lending a soft ambience in the evenings.
The kitchen is designed to be the home's centre, with two ILVE ovens, including a freestanding chef's oven, a pull-out double pantry, stone benchtops and splashbacks, and plenty of storage including a separate drop zone.
The home also offers surprising space - along with four bedrooms, there is a self-contained granny flat in the back garden with its own ensuite and potential to add a kitchenette, plus an office with its own entrance from the street, ideal for a home-based business.
Gardens are equally well-planned and appealing - the walled front garden is lovely in winter, with a front verandah to catch the sun and mature trees, including olives, limes and mangoes. The back garden is lawned and surrounded by established plants and trees including apricot, pear and avocados, making it a lovely play space for children.
A double carport and single carport at the rear, plus extra off-street parking, means there's plenty of room for visitors or even a boat.
The location is idyllic - a neighbourly tree-lined street close to the city and beach, with Wembley Primary School nearby and in the catchment for Churchlands Senior High School (Shenton College in 2020). If you've been looking for your perfect family home in Wembley, this may be the one - be quick!
