Beyond a gorgeous white picket fence and gate on a low-maintenance corner block in one of Como’s most sought-after streets lies this exemplary 4 bedroom 3 bathroom Georgian style family home that combines modern quality with charming imported features across two levels – and even includes a separate fully self-contained studio apartment with its own securely-gated access and a current rental lease of $325 per week. This would also make the perfect AIR BNB option for the astute buyer.
Contemporary character oozes throughout this uniquely built abode, from its polished concrete flooring to Western Red Cedar windows and doors – even extending to unique handmade Jarrah balustrades that are currently produced by only one person in the whole of Western Australia. Aside from a welcoming front lounge room – that can easily be converted into either a study or “fifth” bedroom – and a generous open-plan living and dining area where most of your casual time will be spent, there is an immaculate main kitchen where sleek bench tops meet classic double sinks, and stylish stainless-steel appliances.
A stunning English-style claw-foot bathtub takes centre stage within a gorgeous main bathroom that sits proudly between the spacious second and third bedrooms. Upstairs however, an enchanting parent’s retreat awaits in the form of a separate sitting room and an exquisite master-bedroom suite, boasting a pleasant leafy aspect to wake up to, a walk-in wardrobe and a lovely ensuite bathroom – shower, vanity, and separate toilet.
Privately positioned to the rear is a fabulous outdoor alfresco-entertaining area that extends the dining space via splendid double French doors, is brilliant in its tranquillity and is bordered by an easy-care garden and lush backyard-lawn setting.
