Set Date Sale 25/06/18
SITTING PRETTY – RARE BUYING OPPORTUNITY!!Sitting on a rare 1189m block and occupying pride of position in Joel Terrace, this eye-catching, iconic home has been extended and updated over the years and eventually evolved into the colonial style icon that now captures the glance of all that pass by 73 Joel Terrace.
After spending more than 40 years in the family home they reconstructed, the current owners have finally conceded it is now time for this park-side home with river views to fall into the arms of a new loving owner. Someone who will be enticed by the prospect of a makeover to allow their imagination to run wild and conjure up the perfect setting for the creation of their own memories for the next 40 years!
Boasting a whopping 26m frontage and a street corner location, the property offers numerous options for an astute buyer. The full size rear tennis court can be restored to its glory days, or transformed into an amazing pool and cabana area or simply subdivide with street frontage to Gardiner St.
Internally, the home is comprised of four large bedrooms and a study and reveals a mix of some of the period features that have been retained, including wide jarrah floor boards, wooden colonial double doors and decorative ceiling roses. The central hub of the home includes the galley style kitchen and open plan dining and family area, all punctuated by the rustic feel of high vaulted ceilings and ideally positioned to allow for future expansion ideas.
Eye-catching is the best way to describe this home with its wide verandahs circling both levels of the home, and the classic colonial balustrading and timber fretwork leaving a lasting impression. Further accentuating the vista of character that is hard to surpass in a suburb full of the charm of yesteryear, is the homes very distinguishable turret-topped octagonal games room with its cathedral-style ceilings. This is linked to the rest of the home by the upper level entertaining verandah, offering the perfect opportunity to relax with friends while taking in the tranquil views over Banks Reserve and the Swan River.
This sought after precinct is a pleasant walk to the new Burswood Stadium and the Beaufort St café and shopping district. You can cycle along the river pathways past Ku De Ta to the city which is only 4km away, or even beyond to Fremantle. As a family home, you are in the intake zone of sought-after private and public primary and secondary schools including Trinity, Mercedes and Perth College and transport is a breeze, being in close proximity to East Perth Railway Station, or take the free Yellow Cat bus from the popular City Farm.
The home is being offered for sale with all offers to be presented to the owner by the set sale date of 25th of June, noting that any offers may be taken, negotiated on and accepted prior to the closing date.
