Is this the fairest of them all?
If you’re after a renovated cottage that combines fabulous period and vintage features with a stunning, solar passive, contemporary extension in a location that’s a hop, skip and jump away from Meltham train station and Perth’s most up and coming social precinct, you’ve found it.
With the temptations of Whatley Cres & Eight Ave Maylands up the road plus the Baysie Village nearby, the city a mere five train stops away and cleverly designed spaces perfect for entertaining (and wowing) guests indoors and out, you’ll be hard pressed deciding how and where to spend your leisure time if you’re lucky enough to secure this special property.
Externally, the house presents a pretty, traditional character façade with its original leadlight windows and elevated front verandah with tranquil views East across the tree and roof tops.
Step inside and you’ll be beguiled by the mix of warmth and light that this urban haven affords.
At the front of the home you’ll find three large bedrooms, a renovated ensuite and a superior sized family bathroom with seperate shower and clawfoot bath.
Continue down the hall and you’ll be drawn into the space that will take your breathe away - a substantial and superb open plan living/dining/kitchen area with high vaulted ceilings and striking rear floor to ceiling glass doors and windows, specifically designed to capture the northern Winter sun and frame the fabulous aspect to the landscaped rear entertaining area and gardens.
The generously proportioned kitchen features quality appliances and handcrafted solid Tuart benchtops and the polished Jarrah floorboards, sourced from a demolition in New Norcia, honour those found in the original rooms. Louvered windows capture the sea breeze and wide eaves protect from the Summer heat. Every addition has been considered with respect to the home's heritage, from the retained feature bricks in one of the bedrooms through to two leadlight doors that enclose the laundry space - the latter salvaged from the old sleepout during the renovations.
On the other side of the impressive wall of glass, sheltered in Summer by a gracious and mature red flowering Coral tree, is the beautifully landscaped backyard. It features grass for the kids (human or fur) to play, a paved dining area to enjoy a glass of wine or two in the company of family and friends, a lovely deck area for lounging, a citrus grove and raised garden beds perfect for growing leafy veggies or herbs.
And last but by no means least is the spacious and fully kitted out undercroft home office/studio with its own sink PLUS a further workshop for the home handyman (or additional storage). Need I say more?!
Simply put, this is as close to an idyllic, near city retreat that you’re ever likely to get in a location that puts you within easy reach of the best that the area has to offer.
