Love Where You Live
A magical cottage home, to share with friends, to call you own and to enjoy!
Sometimes a home comes along that just sings out to you.
104 Westminster is just such a home. Cosy 1949 cottage chic, with an up-to-the minute renovation all on a green titled 430m2 block.
Afternoon light filters through broad bladed horizontal blinds and the original wooden casement windows, reflecting on perfectly polished wide jarrah boards in the main living room. There is a working wood fire, providing a warm spot to cuddle with a loved one on a wet winter’s night, or for the more practically minded, pick up the remote and switch on the reverse cycle air conditioner for year round creature comfort.
The generous master bedroom with mirrored robes and a ceiling fan, to tick away on Perth’s languid summer nights, is the perfect private escape.
A second good sized bedroom is great for guests when your overwhelming hospitality ensures driving home is not an option!
In the bathroom, subway tiles with grey grout lines, lend this home a gritty urban edge. Exposed plumbing under the wall hung hand basin is chrome plated, and a frameless glass shower screen continues the theme with chromed wall mounts.
The subway tiles continue in the kitchen. Complete with European appliances (Smeg upright stainless steel cooker and a Bosch d/washer) the kitchen boasts an embarrassment of cupboard space. There is even a clever bank of very practical cupboards along the passageway wall providing excess pantry and comestible storage. The old has been honoured with the original green enamelled Metters stove still in place, a gorgeous reminder of this home’s past.
The backyard is your other living room. The spreading crown of the mature Jacaranda provides the filtered light that makes being outdoors in summer a shady pleasure. And summer nights under the party lights ensure yours is the soiree that friends will remember!
A sun room, complete with original louvered windows, across the back of the home catches the morning winter light. A perfect dining space, breakfast here soaking up the sun. Or maybe it’s a space to spread out and be creative, elevated and overlooking your backyard. Come summer time the spreading Jacaranda will be in full bloom. What a fantastic studio / office / playroom / living space! You choose.
And I shouldn’t forget the yard. Landscaped front and back. With automatic reticulation.
There is so much more to this home. Substantially re-plumbed, re-wired, polished, painted and much loved.
Walking distance (8 minutes approx!) to our very vibrant East Vic Park restaurant, cafe and shopping strip.
For those with dogs to walk, Fraser Park is around the corner. And being an established older suburb there is a plethora of parkland to choose from including the Kensington Bushland and the expansive Harold Rossiter Reserve.
