Boasting a seamless blend of period charm and contemporary style, this renovated and extended 1930s Californian bungalow set on 923 square metres of lush gardens and private entertaining areas offers everything a growing family could wish for.
The home's location near College Park, the Swan River, private and local schools, hospitals, easy transport links and Claremont's shopping and restaurant precinct provides a tranquil yet connected lifestyle in one of Nedlands' most beautiful tree-lined streets.
Enjoyed by its current family for over 30 years - who lovingly oversaw the extension and renovation to the original dwelling - the home offers up to five bedrooms in its flexible, flowing floorplan.
An Art Deco leadlight glass front door reveals a charming entrance hall, from where visitors can immediately appreciate the home's abundant period features in the form of high ornate plaster ceilings, leadlight windows, picture rails, architraves and gleaming jarrah floorboards.
To the left is an inviting music room, private lounge or occasional spare bedroom connected by double glass doors to the downstairs study or potential formal dining room. Ahead, the entry space widens to reveal a beautiful timber staircase to the upper level, with under-stair storage, adjacent to a coat and boot nook.
The heart of the home is then revealed - a generous country style kitchen, huge dining space, and a few steps down into the light-filled family living and entertainment room complete with bay window and window seat. This beautiful and functional daily living zone opens out to the rear garden and pool, offering a private, green oasis where family living and entertaining really come alive.
The in-ground pool with extended lap area is complemented by a covered back verandah, BBQ deck, spacious lawn, formal plantings, mature trees, private courtyards and walled areas adorned with mosaics. There's even a workshop and space for a chook run!
Also on the lower level are three generous bedrooms, family bathroom, laundry with direct access to a drying yard, and separate toilet.
The upstairs extension is sympathetic in keeping with the original dwelling, with hand-made leadlight windows, and offers a substantial master suite and study or fifth bedroom.
The 20sqm master bedroom is complemented by a large ensuite with spa bath, and a three-metre long walk-in robe, while the large study - across a hallway with leadlight and window seat - is the perfect private space to work from home.
With ample storage and off-street parking, this substantial home offers more than just a family retreat - it is immersed in a welcoming community where long-term residents are the norm, and friendships are forged.
