Set in the heart of leafy Floreat, this classic 1950s home boasts immeasurable street appeal while offering an ideal floorplan for families as well as a stunning outdoor entertaining area and garden.
Lovers of history will appreciate the home's original limestone footings, polished jarrah floor boards, towering ceilings and decorative plasterwork... all of which have been lovingly maintained over the years.
Substantial renovations in 2009 have resulted in a contemporary and extremely livable family home, adding a large open plan kitchen and family area and an outstanding alfresco entertaining space.
The expansive floorplan now provides distinct zones for children and parents, with 4 or 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and two separate living areas.
The front section of the home is devoted to parents. The formal lounge room provides a quiet spot to curl up by the gas fireplace in winter, or perhaps enjoy a drink from the original built in cocktail cabinet. The adjoining dining area is easily accessed from the kitchen and would work equally well as a quiet reading nook or study area. The master bedroom, with its own ensuite bathroom, is also tucked away here, well separated from the rest of the home.
Beyond these original rooms, this delightful property opens out into a contemporary family home, with a generous kitchen and living area flowing through stacking sliding doors onto an expansive north-facing covered deck, providing a seamless transition from indoors to out.
Featuring a full suite of Miele appliances and a huge ceasarstone-topped island bench, the kitchen is the hub of the home and an entertainers dream. A bi-fold servery window provides an easy connection with the alfresco area and a clear line of sight to the pool beyond.
With café blinds and white aluminium louvres, this is a place for year-round enjoyment, sheltered from prevailing winds, while overlooking the very private back garden and heated, salt water swimming pool.
A wing of three further bedrooms and a recently Renovated family bathroom extend from the main body of the house, providing ideal separation between parents and kids.
Finally, this home holds a special surprise in the original section of the property: step down the winding staircase to a basement space which would make the perfect music room, study space or teenage retreat - you decide.
Located on a family-friendly tree-lined street, this lovely home is set in the midst of a fantastic neighbourhood, walking distance from Floreat Forum and Floreat Primary School and just a short bus ride to the city. Bold Park, Perry Lakes and the many parks, sporting facilities and green spaces of this beautiful, leafy suburb are all within easy reach, while Floreat and City Beaches are just down the road for a swim.
