Residential Sale

From $919,000


This gorgeous 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom circa-1930s home – with an office that doubles as a fourth bedroom, if not a study – enjoys a private cul-de-sac location opposite Success Hill Train Station, adding convenience to a lifestyle of seclusion, charm and surprising comfort.

The lush front-yard lawns are gated and semi-enclosed, with the double carport leading into a generous single lock-up garage with a roller door. The latter also enjoys double-door access to the rear, where you will find a huge powered lock-up workshop that the budding tradesperson of the house will absolutely love. Also out back is a lined alfresco-entertaining area and an elevated yard with circular lawn – and a beautiful tree in the middle of it all. A spectacular garden setting, if ever there was one.

Internally, soaring high ceilings, skylights, solid wooden floorboards, feature ceiling cornices and tall character skirting boards are commonplace throughout, helping preserve the property’s original nostalgia of yesteryear at the same time. Double sliders off the entry reveal a welcoming front lounge room with exquisite feature ceilings and a gas-bayonet fireplace. Another set of double sliders extends living into a separate dining and kitchen area that has been updated over time to include subway-tile splashbacks, sleek black range-hood and dishwasher appliances, a Belling five-burner gas-cooktop and oven setup and more striking character ceilings.

A commodious family room at the back of the house has a servery window to the kitchen and ample built-in storage, as well as high angled ceilings with two skylights, a massive feature window, a burning wood fireplace and direct security-door access to the yard. Polished concrete floors grace the home office/fourth bedroom that also enjoys a ceiling fan, built in desk and pleasant backyard views behind a sliding barn door. The separate laundry also has polished concrete flooring, as well as under-bench storage and backyard access.

The theme of polished concrete continues into the rear master-bedroom suite where high angled cathedral-style ceilings, charming brickwork and a backyard vista to wake up to meet a fitted walk-in wardrobe and a stylish fully-tiled ensuite bathroom with a walk-in rain shower, a sleek vanity and a toilet. Towards the front of the house, the huge second bedroom has built-in robes and a generous third bedroom plays host to split-system air-conditioning, feature ceilings and a stunning chandelier. The main family bathroom is well-equipped with a rain shower, separate bathtub, toilet and vanity, as well as boasting high ceilings.

Put your walking shoes on and stroll to the lovely Kelly Park at the top of the street for easy access directly to our picturesque Swan River, with only 10 kilometres separating your front doorstep from the vibrant Perth CBD. Walk to shopping, cafes, restaurants and schools too, with the likes of Guildford, the Bassendean town centre and major arterial roads all just minutes away in one way or another. Leave the car at home and take public transport to where you need to go, or hop in and cruise out to the nearby Swan Valley to experience Western Australia’s finest when it comes to food, wine and even beer. What a spot!
