SOLD at First Home Open!
On a green title 449m2 corner block, in the sought after leafy Raphael Park Precinct, 71 Cargill Street is indeed a rare, red brick jewel. At 100 years old she has weathered the years’ passing incredibly well.
Extended to include 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus a study this grand old lady is the epitome of Victoria Park chic. The tuck pointing, corbelled archways, high ceilings, wide polished jarrah boards, sweeping return verandahs and cast iron claw foot bath all serve to emphasise the timeless elegance of this home, and speak of the home’s grand beginnings in 1920.
Light through the stained glass windows plays in dappled patterns on the wall and floor.
A much loved home for the last 10 years, the presentation and maintenance of the home is exceptional. Immaculately presented there is little to do except add you personal touches.
You’ll love the quality detail like the cedar lined verandah ceilings and the beautiful back french doors complete with plantation shutters, opening onto the poured limestone courtyard.
There is a beautiful guest bedroom, adequately separated, at the rear of the home complete with ensuite. In addition there are three other bedrooms all generous in their proportions.
A study or dressing room attaches to the large main bedroom. With a wall of built in storage and a feature fireplace it makes for a perfect personal retreat.
The established garden is a credit to the home (although the verge lawn is just recovering from the installation of underground power to the area).
71 Cargill Street is superbly located. Walk to everything. The cafe strip, bars, restaurants, River, parks, and nearby buses leave regularly for the City and Curtin.
Homes like this are rarely offered. You can feel the weight of history, the stories of lives and laughter, sons and daughters across the years.
For its age the home loses nothing in amenity. NBN (FTTP – that’s the good one), reverse cycle air conditioning to the main living room and master bedroom, an alarm system, undercover off-street parking for two cars and clever low maintenance landscaping make this a perfect near city home.
It’s time to add your story to this grand old home. Inspection is absolutely a must.
