Picture Perfect - UNDER OFFER!
With 3 full sized bedrooms this gorgeous street front home has not only stood the test of time, but has been substantially improved by the current owners. From the ground up this home has been given the once over – re-stumped, re-plumbed, re-wired and re-roofed! With open plan contemporary living flowing to a gob smackingly good under cover alfresco entertaining area, this home ticks all the boxes.
50 Rathay was one of the first homes built on the street. Before bitumen and curbs and street trees and underground power and NBN, this weatherboard worker’s cottage was a home-owner’s pride and joy. The street is now tree-lined and retains many original character houses, including this beautifully maintained home.
The brand new kitchen is white, bright and functional. Quality Miele appliances and a practical stone topped breakfast bar are perfect for social occasions and everyday living alike. At the centre of the rear open plan living room, the kitchen really is the hub of the home. Opposite the lounge and dining area, adjacent the opening to the deck, the kitchen’s location is an entertainer-cum-gastronome’s wish come true!
The bathroom has also been completely renovated. Simple lines and original polished jarrah boards make this room, combining the laundry also, a well thought out and easy to use space.
You’ll love living just a short walk to the vibrant Vic Park strip. Cafes, small bars, specialty stores, a plethora of restaurants, street markets, parks and convenient public transport, plus more, are all within walking distance.
This is one of the best executed alfresco living areas I’ve ever seen on an original worker’s cottage! With approximately 40m2 of raised decking (all at the original house level), under a pitched roof, with easy access to the internal living through double french doors, quality ceiling fans, drop down blinds on the south west side for year round comfort and surrounded by lawn and garden. It is a lovely space that will become the centre of your entertaining and day-to-day living. Set it up with a lounge, large dining table or a hammock, even a table tennis table. There is just sooooo much space!
With under cover parking and space for another car off street behind the gate, your parking considerations are met. There is also under cover storage for bicycles and other items to the rear of the carport. In addition a handy garden shed provides secure outdoor storage.
With ducted air conditioning and a gas burning central fireplace, your year round creature comforts are met.
50 Rathay demands inspection. From the original 1920’s front gate to the established gardens front and back, it is an impressive home perfectly located in Victoria Park.
