An unassuming worker’s cottage facade hides the very best of contemporary character home living.
Sympathetically extended on 702m2 of green titled land this 5 bedroom 2 bathroom circa 1925 weatherboard home is everything you could wish for – and then some!
A traditional lead light entry-way opens into a central hallway in the original section of the home. Four big bedrooms are accessed off the hallway. Two of the rooms feature fireplaces and one of the rooms, with double timber doors, lends itself to being a potential third living area, or an office.
A two storey extension compliments the original home, transitioning from the hallway – past the full sized laundry and modern bathroom, into a vaulted ceiling open-plan great room. A functional white bright kitchen, complete with stone bench-tops, is the heart of the home. With a generous island-bench, loads of storage and breakfast bar, there is room to feed the hoards or enjoy a glass of wine with friends.
The clever use of timber accents (three pairs of double Oregon doors and an exposed timber beam) and terracotta tiles in this big room lend a rustic and relaxed feel to the space.
The open plan living flows easily to truly one of the biggest decked alfresco areas I’ve ever had the pleasure to sell! Pets, kids, mates, weddings, parties, anything! This house is absolutely designed for the best of Western Australian outdoor living.
With a relaxed and sprawling back yard, there are nooks and crannies everywhere for budding explorers! A patch of lawn finishes at an arbour of bougainvillea, as you wander down toward the garden shed.
Summertime is looking good! You’ll love the large saltwater self chlorinating pool. Recently serviced. Enjoy languid summer afternoon soaks in your private oasis.
Upstairs a decked balcony, overlooking your leafy back yard, opens back into an adult retreat. Designed for the ultimate in multi-generational living, the upstairs living room and master suite are an escape from the rest of the home’s occupants!
With a gorgeous mature Jacaranda tree, there is a lovely purple display of flowers each year. A signature of older homes in the area.
This home has been owned by the same family since 1992. It has seen the back yard converted into an outdoor cinema in the warmer months, enjoyed the proximity of the Carnarvon Street’s annual Christmas party in the adjacent lane way and now it will be a perfect escape for the next lucky owner for years to come.
Perfectly located in this cosy and community minded enclave of Carnarvon Street, amongst gorgeous original weatherboard worker’s cottages, 24 Carnarvon is a rare jewel of a home worth fighting for.
With many more features that can only be appreciated on inspection, this home is unlikely to disappoint.
