Gem of a Home
Truly the rarest of jewels.
44 Rathay Street Victoria Park. If only walls could talk. This home oozes history.
Perfectly positioned to capture the best of the Vic Park life, this 4 bedroom 2 bathroom renovated 1920’s weatherboard cottage is just a stroll from the vibrant Albany Highway strip and a plethora of cafe, bar and restaurant options (the home is currently configured as a 3 bedroom home with 2 living areas).
On a corner 399m2 green titled block, this home is a genuine surprise package.
A cleverly conceived architecturally designed extension and complete renovation to an original timber weatherboard cottage.
The original fabric and facade of the building has been preserved as the dormitory component of the home, linked by a north facing glazed hallway to a modern extension, comprising light- filled open plan living and a ‘hero’ kitchen with oodles of storage, a sweeping breakfast bar and swathes of Kashmir White Granite bench tops.
The generous master bedroom features built in robes either side of the entrance to the easy modern ensuite bathroom. With a wall hung vanity, heated towel rail, under floor heating, a and deep bath, for long luxuriating soaks after a hard day. It’s just what you deserve.
The pod style construction effortlessly links the old and the new, with a hallway that opens completely to a large north facing decked alfresco. Ceiling to floor bi-fold glazing pulls back giving the home an amazing open quality, perfect for entertaining and seamless indoor outdoor living.
This home was conceived with passion and it shows. From the established gardens to the textural detail like the pressed tin hallway panelling it all adds up to the perfect whole.
Quality materials including New Zealand Hume pine weatherboard cladding, Acratex pigmented render, Holcim Wattle exposed aggregate concrete, commercial grade powder coated aluminum doors and windows are just the tip of this particular iceberg.

The decked alfresco is a leafy space for contemplation, to enjoy winter sunshine, or extend the automatic awning for summer shade. It has hosted many a starry skied, balmy summer night BBQ with good friends.
