This well maintained, spacious character home located in the heart of Cottesloe is an ideal entry level property for those looking to make the move to Western Australia's most celebrated coastal enclave.

Situated between the villages of Cottesloe and Swanbourne and minutes from the Claremont retail and dining precincts, this spacious 1930s character home is solidly built and spacious enough to house a growing family.

Offered for the first time to the market in 90 years, this home has been well maintained and cared for over the years and home to the same family for almost a century.

Located within the highly sought after North Cottesloe Primary School catchment zone, it is also a short walk to some of Perth's finest secondary colleges and within easy reach of the University of Western Australia and the Perth CBD.

The original 1930s bungalow features many of the characteristic hallmarks of the early art deco era, with picture rails, high ornate ceilings, decorative architraves and paneled windows and French doors throughout the original dwelling.

Entrance is via a vestibule, as was characteristic of 1930s architecture, opening into a spacious lounge or living room with high ceilings, original timber floor boards and open fire place.

The lounge links to what would have been once the formal dining room via a set of timber paneled doors with direct access into the renovated kitchen and semi formal living spaces.

The master suite retains the character elements of the era with high ceilings and built in robes and direct access to an adjoining ensuite bathroom.

Previously extended to house a growing family, the extension is equally solidly built and continues the theme of generous proportions and high ceiling throughout.

The home's extra-large kitchen is the anchor point of this family home with an outlook over the living area to the garden beyond.

Featuring ample cupboard and bench space and a large five burner gas stove, this is very much the heart of a much-loved family home.

The central living and dining area is bound by panels of glass windows with plenty of natural light and an easy transition from indoors to out.

Outdoor areas are fuss free and well maintained with space for an outdoor garden shed or covered entertaining space with a north facing aspect.

Two additional generously sized bedrooms make up what could become a teenage wing with great separation from the rest of the home and direct access to a second bathroom and separate toilet.

An additional sleep out or nursery adds another accommodation option, located adjoining the master suite, or provides an alternative option for conversion into a separate study or home office.

This is a home that is built for a growing family with plenty of space for family members indoors and out and little to do other than move in and enjoy the spoils of a true Cottesloe lifestyle.

Walking distance to the shores of North Cottesloe beach, join the tribes of Sunday nippers or the early morning risers as well as the spoils of being walking distance to some of the best shopping and dining options this city has to offer.

This is an ideal entry point to arguably Perth's premier beachside suburb and a great starting point for those looking to make a move into this prized section of Western Australian real estate.

Generously sized, well built and maintained, this is an ideal first family home for those looking to call Cottesloe home!
