This traditional bungalow-style dwelling, hidden in a leafy doubleview, has the big heart of a classic Australian home with a modern twist.
The layout with three bedrooms and one bathroom will suit a variety of potential buyers, and also has opportunities for future development, according to real estate agent Realmark Urban Licensed Real Estate Nathan Tonic.
“It’s suitable for buyers who potentially want to keep an existing house and separate the backyard – it’s like getting a pension in your yard,” he said.
“Developers would be interested in repairing the front of the house and dividing the back.
“It will also be ideal for young families or couples looking for a nice cottage with plenty of space and the potential for expansion or refurbishment.”
Radiating the former charm at first sight, the house is located at the end of a wide brick driveway, and the facade is viewed through the established trees and greenery.
Going inside, Mr. Tonic said you were immediately struck by the distinctive design of the house from the sole board, the hard polished floorboards of the jarrah and the warm and cozy atmosphere.
Moving further into the house, you are knocked off your feet by the huge amount of space on the open plan, which leads to the district porch and backyard.
“There is a large kitchen space overlooking the living room and dining room, and floor-to-ceiling windows facing north run across the north wall,” Mr Tonic said. “It looks like a lofty wooden deck and a mature landscape.
“The kitchen is in the heart of the house and is a center for entertainment and meetings.”
The courtyard, which can be accessed through many French doors, is your own secret garden with wide garden beds, a lawn, a rustic brick sidewalk and an adult shady tree.
“The amazing open area offers many options for entertainment,” Mr Tonic said. “You can have fun on the high deck among the trees or cook a barbecue on the paved area if you organize big meetings.
“There’s also a huge workshop with access to the back lane for secure parking.”
When it comes time to go out on the hay, all the bedrooms have high ceilings, and the master bedroom has preserved the original fireplace of the house, as well as his and her bathrobes.
184 Holbeck Street is steps from Karrinyup Shopping Center, a short walk from Bradley Preserve, a short drive to Scarborough Beach and just 15 minutes from central Perth.
“There is also Westfield Innaloo and it is around the corner from the popular The Corner Dairy, St Brigid Bar and Little Sisto,” Mr Tonic said. “There are so many options in this pretty cottage that you’ll be spoiled for choice.”
