Jewel of the Park
So rarely do these park-front homes on right on Raphael Park become available.
Currently configured as a 4 bedroom home, this versatile floor plan could easily be used as a generous 3 bedroom home with 2 bathrooms and 2 living areas.
Built in 1932 the home’s unusual arched façade borrows from the American, Spanish Mission architectural style. In the interwar period, the adoption of US music, cars and fashion was popular in Australia, as USA popular culture appeared in glossy homemaker magazines and motion pictures. This home was cutting edge for Victoria Park!
With high ceilings and original jarrah floor boards, the home boasts feature lead-lights and big rooms.
The tuck pointed fire place in the front formal lounge (currently a bedroom) is a gorgeous center piece to this generous room. Timber casement widows run around the corner of the room providing lovely northern light in winter as well as a view back across the road to the jewel that is Raphael Park.
On 364m2 of survey strata land, the home’s garden is a blank canvas ripe for your uncanny landscaping flair. In fact most of the garden has been brick paved for easy care (the home was previously tenanted) and would benefit from a little greenery and a white picket fence.
The kitchen is white and bright and modern, with acres of stone bench top, a 900mm stainless free standing cooker and loads of storage. The kitchen window overlooks the paved rear alfresco entertaining area, and is part of an L-shaped open plan living room that opens to the outside through a glass sliding door. There is plenty of room to entertain!
A main bathroom with an opulent free standing bath and wall hung timber topped vanity is a classy modern touch in this beautiful old home. A European styled laundry is cleverly integrated into the main bathroom, concealed by sliding doors. A second bathroom at the front of the home provides a practical solution to the demands of having extra people in your home.
All your creature comforts are catered for with reverse cycle split system air conditioning installed throughout the home. Happily the home is also on NBN (FTTP), perfect for extreme streaming sessions (no, I have never watched Bridgeton!).
If location is paramount then this home is the pick of the bunch. Just a stroll to the River, Stadium, City buses and Victoria Park’s vibrant entertainment strip.
Living on Raphael Park is to join a very salubrious community. Waking up to this expanse of lush open green space every day, in the middle of an urban environment, is truly one of life’s privileges.
It’s time to put down roots and this is exactly the right spot to do it.
Don’t miss this opportunity!
