Well the debate rages on…which is the best street in Victoria Park? Cargill certainly has to be right up there. With its leafy streetscape and wealth of original 1920’s homes.
1/55 Cargill Street is a special home. Built in 1926 and having been with the current owner for over 26 years, this charming red brick and tile cottage provides the perfect Raphael Park Precinct address. Surrounded by original character homes and walking distance to everything!
A lead light panel welcomes you as you step into the hallway. Polished boards, high ceilings and a striking corbelled archway. All the bedrooms come of the main hallway. The master and bedroom 2 are both at the front of the home and are generously proportioned. Bedroom 3 was the original kitchen and still has the chimney breast and a nook were the Meters Stove would have been.
The main living area features a beautiful in-built gas fire, guaranteeing cosy winters! The home then flows easily through to the dining and kitchen area. The dining room boasts a large glass sliding door, for indoor outdoor living as required. The shady paved alfresco entertaining area is surrounded by established garden and is fully fenced, perfect for kids and pets.
The light bright kitchen is a practical galley configuration with European appliances and beautiful bench tops of polished Western Australian hardwood! A laundry comes off the kitchen and opens to an outdoor drying space.
The home has a list of quality improvements including NBN (FTTP), security system with perimeter arming, secure gated entry with video intercom access, 8 solar panels (1.25kw inverter), automatic garaging for a single car plus additional parking, heated towel rails, ducted evaporative air conditioning and more!
A block from Raphael Park, a stroll from the river, a jaunt to the vibrant Victoria Park strip and down the road from the sought after Victoria Park Primary School. On the city’s doorstep this leafy enclave is in a jewel of a location. They really don’t make homes like 1/55 Cargill Street any more, so be quick!
