Original circa-1930s character meets quality modern additions here, in the form of this gorgeous 3 bedroom 1 bathroom character home on a decent 449sqm (approx.) block in a wonderful location that is simply close to it all – our picturesque Swan River included.

Solid wooden floorboards, high ceilings, classic light switches, feature skirting boards and decorative ceiling cornices of yesteryear are commonplace throughout, along with gorgeous white plantation window shutters. Overlooked by a lovely entry verandah, the front-yard lawns are newly laid and ready for the kids to run around on.

Inside, a welcoming front lounge room makes an instant first impression with its brick-feature wood fireplace, leading through to a central kitchen that has been impressively renovated and leaves more than enough space for dining. A stainless-steel Fisher and Paykel dishwasher and gas-cooktop, oven and range-hood appliances of the same brand are complemented by sparkling stone bench tops, subway-tile splashbacks, charming brickwork and a splendid leafy outlook to the garden.

The master bedroom is spacious, the second bedroom is large and the third bedroom-come-sleepout at the back of the house comes in nice and handy. Opposite a European-style laundry lies a brand-new bathroom with quality tiling, a shower, toilet, heat lamps and more.

The rear deck overlooks an extra-large “blank canvas” of a backyard that can be whatever you want it to be. It even plays host to a powered workshop shed – or potential studio – that is virtually every tradesperson’s dream.

Also nearby are lush local parks (including Bassendean Oval), Bassendean Primary School, the Cyril Jackson Senior Campus and Recreation Centre, bus stops, Bassendean Train Station, cafes, bars, eateries, Bassendean Shopping Centre, the heart of old Guildford town and even our famous Swan Valley. All of the hard work has already been done for you, here. Just bring your belongings and move straight on in!
