A CALIFORNIA DREAMER BUNGALOW
A classic California Bungalow that screams ‘deco’. From the white picket fence to the broad Corinthian column supported front veranda and double undercover parking area, this very special modernised 1940s home is a wonderful blast from the past.
Inside it has all the vintage pedigrees you would expect, gorgeous leadlight windows, high ceilings, picture rails, exquisite deco ceiling rosettes and some really cool craftsmen ‘tulip’ design wood detail interior arch work, typical of the period. Beautiful seasoned highly polished jarrah floorboards throughout give this home a warm and inviting ambience that makes one feel ‘at home’ immediately.
Broad hallways lead to huge rooms and compliment the family feel this home inspires. The master bedroom is literally massive with modern built in mirrored robes and broad detailed leadlight windows that face east to catch the morning light. This room has a truly breathtaking deco ceiling rosette which mirrors the similar sized living room across the hallway and along with leadlight windows features an open fireplace (which has been converted to gas for modern convenience but could easily be switched back if you like the ambience of a wood fire).
There are two more smaller bedrooms (but big by contemporary standards) one of which has a modern ensuite bathroom. The home includes two bathrooms.
The Kitchen has the typical alcove for the old wood stove which has been replaced with a chef standard De Longhi industrial gas oven with 5 burners. There is plenty of cupboard space (even a wine rack) and a convenient service opening that enables the cook to talk to guests in the second living/entertainment area which also has a built-in bar.
This kitchen has an open plan dining area ideal for family meals or formal dinners. The secondary entertainment area is graced with a five panel leadlight window feature and corresponding double doors, that lead out onto the enormous, raised wood decked and covered back outdoor entertainment area which takes up the whole width of this big home, a great spot to entertain all year round.
This property is a ready to live in contemporary home with style and grace, however it also has the potential for architectural improvements that would maintain its timeless quality and add modern styling to an already very stylish environment.
