About this listing

SOLD - This listing was sold in March 2017.

I'm not as pretty as I once was and need someone to take care of me. I was built about 15 years ago and need an update, not that there's anything particularly "wrong" with how I am now, it's just knowing what the new me could look like.

When my owners lived here I was loved, cared for and looked after, and boy did I look good. I remember my courtyard, what a lovely spot. Loads of greenery, colourful flowers, the sound of running water, plenty of shade. My owners certainly enjoyed their little oasis.
Chilly winter mornings, they belonged outside. With large areas of north facing glass the family / dining area is a winter sun trap. One of my owners would bask in the sunshine with her feet up, reading her favourite magazine and sipping her morning coffee. What a great way to start the day she would say! Summer was no bother; my ducted air conditioning saw to that. Fire it up first thing and the hot days were soon forgotten.

That was then, this is now.

My first tenants were okay, we got along so well they stayed for eight years. I was sorry to see them go as not everyone treated me so kindly after they moved out, I'm sure the others didn't mean it, probably a little careless. Now I want a makeover just like those TV programs. I can see myself now, new kitchen, new ensuite, new bathroom, new floor coverings, perhaps some window treatments and a fresh coat of paint. I'd be my old self again. I may even look as good as the house at the front after her makeover, what a transformation. I'm jealous!

My owners had a revelation one day, they climbed onto the roof to do something and realised for the first time they could see the city through a canopy of green. It was at that point serious consideration was given to adding a second level. What a grand residence I'd be then!

The one thing all my occupants had was the blessing of living in such a convenient location. The tenants who stayed for eight years didn't leave until their daughter graduated from the local private college. Being so close she could walk there and back safely. Then of course the trip to the city was made easy, a short walk to the bus stop and before you knew it you're in the heart of Perth. My owners preferred the walk to the train station, a little bit further but very pleasant all the same. Don't feel like cooking? A pleasant stroll and you're in the heart of café land, mmm... What shall I have?

Want to see my charms?
Call my agent and tell him what I am worth to you.
