Single Storey Family Home in Peppermint Grove
This convenient lock and leave size block with lovely northern aspect offers you the opportunity to renovate or redevelop to create your dream home. Located in prestigious Peppermint Grove, you are within minutes of all the lifestyle opportunities and practical conveniences needed for every age and stage of life.
With a bit of a freshen up this 1970s single storey home is ready for down-sizers, families or professionals. The front living rooms and kitchen are tiled with high ceilings, and have a lovely northern orientation looking out through large windows to the sun-soaked front yard. This could easily be transformed into a wonderful light and bright open plan living and dining area, with access to outdoor entertaining space.
Down the main corridor of the house you'll find a study/playroom/additional bedroom, with direct access to outside through a glass sliding door. There is a large laundry, powder room and family bathroom with shower and small bath.
Situated at the rear of the house are the three decent sized bedrooms, all with wonderful large windows looking out to the grassed backyard. The master suite has built-in robes, ensuite and a built-in dressing table.
The backyard is shaded by a magnificently large fiddle leaf fig and there is an insulated work shed which could easily be turned into a rumpus room for kids. Off street parking is available for at least two cars, with one undercover.
The manageable sized block offers numerous possibilities. Freshen up and move in, or redevelop to make the most of the 514sqm block.
Young families will appreciate the easy stroll to both Cottesloe or Mosman Park Primary Schools, and love the abundance of parks, playgrounds, and amenities walking and riding distance away. Manners Hill Park, Peppermint Grove Tennis Club, St Hilda's Senior School, Cottesloe Train station, Boatshed Market, and The Grove Library are all in easy reach. Pop to Gill Street cafe around the corner for your morning coffee, and it's just a short stroll to the shops, cafes and restaurants of Napoleon Street and Cottesloe Central.
This home is perfectly positioned to enjoy the nearby natural open spaces; at one end of the street is the beautiful Swan River, and at the other end you have easy access to Cottesloe Beach over the overpass.
Enjoy a leisurely stroll along Freshwater Bay admiring the beautiful black swans and even the occasional dolphin. This is one of Perth's favourite picnic spots for good reason; clean, shallow water, shade provided by the beautiful old fig trees and protected from the sea breeze. Grab some fish and chips with the kids or grandkids and enjoy the peace and beauty of your local foreshore as the sun sets on another idyllic day.
This property provides an entry point into prestigious Peppermint Grove and all that it offers.
