Set in a quiet, leafy street in Melville amongst a mix of established and new homes is this charming 3 bedroom home that sits behind a private, high-wall fenced garden. Beyond the feature wooden gates lies a private sanctuary from which you can hear the birds chirping amongst the gentle rustle of the trees, just as the Freo Doctor breezes in.
Reminiscent of a writer's getaway in the Hollywood Hills, this delightful abode features solid jarrah floorboards throughout, a functional layout with a uniquely spacious, light and bright living room that is framed by floor to ceiling windows along two walls. Matched with a high pitched roof, it feels like a large, enclosed conservatory suitable for various uses, be it a home office, separate living area or an art studio. The outlook to the front garden with established greenery adds to the feeling of a secluded haven hidden from neighbourly eyes.
The kitchen features stone bench tops and stainless steel appliances that are matched with crisp white built in cabinets for plentiful storage. The adjacent meals area makes for practical day to day living and opens into a courtyard with a patio for sun-sheltered summer entertaining.
The bedrooms come with full height wardrobes, ceiling fans, matched with a modern bathroom. There is also a separate laundry and additional powder room.
Separate to the main residence are two outbuildings, one of which currently serves as a lock up garage and the other as a workshop. Could this be an opportunity to turn both spaces into a sizeable granny flat or self-contained apartment for teenagers/adult children?
The home is centrally located, only 200 metres from a vast public park space, less than 6 minutes drive to Fremantle and 2 minutes to all the shops and conveniences of Melville Plaza Shopping Centre.
You know what they say . . . when opportunity knocks...
