CLASSIC HERITAGE ENTERTAINER

Open Sat 25/11 12-12.40PM

This original 1930’s Californian bungalow style home is one of North Perth’s finest examples of the era. Wrapped around a corner site sitting on 541m2, this residence strikes an impressive and imposing presence on the street scape. The owners have spared nothing to ensure the extension seamlessly blends with the original house; with an attention to detail that will delight even the most discerning buyers.

Step up onto the front porch, with its large wrap-around verandah and original terrazzo inset into the floor; you will immediately start to relax, ready to sip on a G&T with friends – yet this is just the beginning of the myriad of entertaining options that the home offers…

Inside the front of the home there are all the magnificent period finishes that you would expect from a house of this quality. Soaring ornate ceilings, curved feature lead-light windows, the cut-out timber architraves and feature timber-work in the hallways; even the internal doors have lead-light inserts. A formal lounge and formal dining with fireplace, connects with the front verandah through double doors, perfect for combining the indoors with the outside and creating a sense of occasion that avid entertainers will love.

The extension has been executed with precision and perfection. Every element mirrors the original structure so that you would be forgiven for thinking that it was all a single original residence. Full height ceilings with ornate plaster-work, replica doors with lead-light inserts, lead-light windows, architraves, skirtings, mouldings – it’s all matched to provide a striking continuity not often seen with typical renovations.

The huge kitchen, casual dining and family room areas all open through bi-fold doors onto a delightful courtyard with huge limestone paving blocks and classic garden. This serene space captures the northern light and transports you to a place more akin to a villa in Provence.
