Too Late! Under Offer!

Within a short walk of all that makes East Vic Park uber cool! This pretty, blue 1920’s original weatherboard worker’s cottage home is that perfect blank canvas that you’ve been looking for.

All the hard work has been done, re-stumped, re-wired and with a new kitchen, fit for a chef in residence. Two bedrooms, plus a sleep out (currently configured as an oversize laundry and storage room) make up the accommodation in this home. With 273m2 of survey strata land there are plenty of options for the future.

In the back yard a decked alfresco entertaining takes pride of place, the perfect spot to kickback after a day at work, wine in hand. It is backed by a boundary brick wall, begging for a piece of outdoor garden art to be hung or maybe an espaliered citrus tree. With room for lawn and a garden shed, a perfect place for pets to play!

The generous kitchen really is the hero of the home, completely re-done in a modern country style three years ago, with quality appliances and lots of bench top space and storage. Dinner parties are a must. The 900mm under bench oven I am reliably informed will fit four roast chickens!

A traditional front lounge room opens off the hallway and has a fireplace with timber surround, a charming original feature of the home, evocative of fireside chats on winter nights. Imagine the stories this house could tell. Built between the great wars, when a tram to the city was a modern convenience, the talk was of steamships, gold, wool and a telegram of Ashes success in the Old Country.

From telegraph lines to the NBN, what amazing change! With fibre to the home, perfect for streaming binge-worthy content, what would the 1920’s inhabitants think?

Out the front behind the pier and picket fence there is plenty of off-street parking on the liquid lime stone hardstand. The front verandah has been rebuilt in Jarrah, ready for another 100 years of watching the world go by.

With buses every few minutes to the city down Albany Highway and regular buses to Curtin University on Kent Street, a short walk to shops, bars,cafes, restaurants, weekly farmer’s markets and summer night markets in the park (back again on Friday 27th October), you really are part of one of Perth’s most vibrant communities.

Presenting a perfect opportunity to secure your slice of the cafe strip lifestyle.
