All the "I Wants"
It has been said that Victoria Street is the best street in St James…
Built in 1953 on a 584m2 block this 3×1 brick and tile home boasts big rooms and high ceilings.
With side access and off street parking for 2 or more cars, this home ticks a lot of boxes.
You’ll be suitably impressed with the 3 room brick studio at the rear of the block. Purportedly built by the first owners as accommodation while they finished the main home. It boasts modern louvered windows and an original art deco faux feature fireplace. The ceiling has been insulated, there is power on and the studio boasts its own toilet. Perfect as a home office or with a little improvement it could be a fantastic granny flat!
The home itself retains its character charm with polished hardwood floors and ornate 50’s plaster-glass ceilings.
A modern kitchen complete with stainless steel dishwasher and stainless steel under-bench oven has been installed and features plenty of storage and acres of benchtop space. You’ll be cooking up a storm or relaxing with a glass of wine in no time!
The large living room at the rear of the home opens both to the kitchen dining, and the backyard. A split system air-conditioning unit ensures you’ll enjoy this space in comfort, year round.
The three bedrooms are all generously proportioned. Two feature original built in robes. 23 Victoria was ahead of its time. For a 50’s house there is a surprising amount of storage. A walk in storeroom off the hall is a practical inclusion, plus there is a traditional built in linen press.
The bathroom is big. The original cast iron bath in classic 50’s green works perfectly with the mosaic floor tiles!
An outside laundry offers additional storage plus there is a third toilet!
The fully enclosed backyard is landscaped with lawn and fruit trees (almond, lemon and olive). Out the front a mature Moreton Bay Fig tree provides summer shade and is home to a family of willy wag tails.
Held by the current owners for more than 15 years, this is a rare opportunity to secure your spot on Victoria Street.
Within walking distance to easy bus access to Curtin and the City, close to the new Woolworths, and the vibrant East Victoria Park café strip is easily accessible.
