12 Waugh Street North Perth, WaThis gracious 1920’s home has been reborn to become the quintessential double storey Family Home with 5 (or even 6) bedrooms, 2 bathrooms 2 separate living areas and even a swimming pool in beautiful surrounds. Just as importantly the home is situated in a sought after leafy street in the friendliest of neighborhoods. The home has an appealing facade with a wide porch illuminated by stunning leadlight windows and doors. The character goes well beyond the front verandah.

Inside, there are lovely rooms with all the period features that we adore from the fabulous 1920’s era. There are high ceilings with ornate plasterwork, lustrous wooden floors, and decorative fireplaces, the perfect counter balance for the modern designer touches that have brought this home into the 21st century. A soft neutral palette flows throughout seamlessly connecting the original with the new. The upper floor with its 3 bedrooms and bathroom is modern and light, ideal for the children. The main bedroom however, with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom (complete with free-standing claw foot bath tub) is pure character, as is the 2nd bedroom and study which are also in the original section of the house. The large kitchen has a country design and is complete with copious storage and work benches, a walk-in pantry, breakfast bar and adjacent dining. While the country style may not meet with everyone’s taste, there is no denying its practicality and placement. It leads directly into the informal living room, which in turn leads out, through French doors to the amazing outdoor entertaining area complete with swimming pool.

Also at the rear of the home is the second living area or theatre room. This is a light comfortable room with good views to the outdoor entertaining area. It is from here you reach the laundry and downstairs loo and shower and also access the second storey via a sleek, modern staircase constructed of metal and wood.

There is a room in this house to suit everyone and enough space to give a sense of privacy and solitude when required. Throughout, the presentation is superb and it is obvious that the home has been meticulously maintained over the years.

In summary, the best of all worlds combine here, a clever collaboration of the classic features of the past with present day conveniences create a wonderful home for the whole family. There is also the essential practicality of off street parking for at least two cars. This pocket of beautiful North Perth is so convenient with local shops close by, an Italian Delicatessen around the corner, as is Woodville park with its sports facilities including bowling club and tennis courts. The local Primary school, endless cafes and shopping along the High Street all of these are within walking distance, all around is the evidence of true community living. Plus, you can drive directly into The City or access the freeways North and South with ease. Take time to come and explore, it is such a vibrant established neighbourhood.
