Paying homage to its historical roots

This federation bungalow, built between 1910 and 1915, is the epitome of yesteryear charm and character with modern contemporary additions.

Shared-Space Property Agency Managing Director Justine McKinnon said homes were not built like this anymore.

“It is heritage listed by the local government, with the City of Vincent acknowledging the beauty and history the home lends to the council area,” she said.

“It is a unique property that is different to all other heritage homes in North Perth.”

While the facade of 321 Fitzgerald Street gives the illusion that it may be quite small, the home is a lot bigger than imagined with sweeping 3.8m high ceilings and generously proportioned rooms.

The use of traditional red bricks, combined with the striking leadlight front door, pays homage to its historical roots.

In the entry hallway, a classic archway and wooden floors add noticeable beauty and character to the abode.

To the left are two bedrooms, both with tall cathedral-style ceilings and hardwood floors, as well as working fireplaces.

The bathroom further down the hall is spacious, with an extraordinary clawfoot bathtub and double-sized shower.

The lounge, with yet another eye-catching fireplace, sits towards the back of the home and an open-archway leads to the open-plan kitchen and dining space.

The kitchen combines the heritage feel of the home with modern appliances, proving to be a marvellous blend of the past and the present.

Copious amounts of bench space, plenty of cupboards with shaker profile doors and a generous walk-in pantry make the kitchen a homemaker’s dream. Double-door access from the dining room opens to the rear courtyard, a fantastic entertaining space.

“Out the back there are two zones,” Ms McKinnon said.

“One is a sunken area with timber bench seating just asking for a firepit. This area provides access to the lane way and has city views.

“Around the side, still off the kitchen, is another seating area fully undercover, perfect for building an outdoor kitchen.”

Heading back inside and up the stairs in the hall, you will find the loft-style master bedroom with high ceilings, air-conditioning and separate his and her walk-in robes with the potential to modify one of the robes into an adjoining bathroom.

“The large walk-in-robe/storeroom in the upstairs loft used to be an ensuite – all the provisions are there for it to be converted back to an ensuite,” Ms McKinnon said.

“The city views are phenomenal and can be easily seen from the upstairs loft bedroom.”

Living in a place like this can afford people a metropolitan lifestyle or a low-maintenance, lock-up-and-leave way of living.

Ms McKinnon said there were no other homes which could match its character.

“The size and the quietness is very surprising because it is so well built with quality materials, it is a lot more peaceful than you would expect,” she said.

“The person who is lucky enough to buy this property will have a beautiful one-of-a-kind residence in an enviable location.”
