BEACHSIDE FAMILY BUNGALOW
Live the Australian coastal lifestyle dream in this renovated character bungalow with a huge grassy backyard, beautiful Australian native trees and pristine Cottesloe Beach at the end of the street. This elegant home on a substantial 640sqm block will appeal to young couples, families, or investors looking for a foothold into the highly sought-after Cottesloe market.
The home rests behind a tall limestone wall which provides incredible privacy and a quiet sanctuary once inside the gate. Polished Jarrah floorboards, sash windows, leadlights and high decorative ceilings are all hallmarks of this Californian Bungalow style home, creating a wonderful sense of character and charm.
There are two living areas in the home offering great separation for families when needed.
The lounge room near the entrance features an ornate timber fireplace and can be closed off from the rest of the house. It could also be utilised as a 4th bedroom if required. The sunken family living room is tiled and opens out to the backyard.
The main bathroom has been modernised with a grey and white colour palette and features a huge freestanding tub with sleek stainless steel tap ware. In the second bathroom towards the back of the house is a shower, vanity and separate toilet and this room is set up to function as a dual-use laundry.
Panelled ceiling, cabinetry profiles and timber bench tops create a warm and cosy feel in the kitchen which has a Lofra oven, gas cooktop and Dishlex dishwasher. Next to the kitchen is a sunlit dining space that effortlessly flows out to a timber-decked alfresco lounge area that then sweeps around to the huge backyard. A majestic tree in the middle with tyre swing, built-in sand pit in the deck and plenty of lawn to run around on, this backyard is every kids and parents dream. Picture yourself spending many hours out in this calm and natural space, enjoying the delicate scents of the garden's frangipani and lemon trees.
There is laneway access to the back of the property through a gate that opens to a paved parking space for either a car, boat or caravan. Alternatively, at the front of the property you can drive through a gate and there is parking for multiple cars, including a small garage.
Located close to public transport, a trip to the City, Claremont Quarter or Fremantle is a breeze, with Scotch College and North Cottesloe Primary School all within an easy stroll.
