Central Charm: A Highgate Home


From $1,250,000   3 Bed 1 Bath 2 Car

This delightful character home has retained its 1900s charm while boasting modern furnishings thanks to recent extensions and renovations. In a convenient Highgate location, this delightful brick number is just a stroll away from Perth city, with an array of diverse shops, cafés and bars along the way. Beyond the double fronted façade is a verandah, perfect for watching the world go by and marinating in your own tastefulness.

Features to Love:

Rustic Floorboards

These 5-inch polished beauties are the perfect surface for sliding around in your socks and pretending to be an Olympic ice skater.

Open Fireplaces

You’ve got options for roasting marshmallows with not one but two open fireplaces. Not only are they decoratively classical, they also provide Santa Claus with two possible entry points, giving you twice as much joy come Christmas time.

Timber Deck Courtyard

The living room doors open right up onto the timber deck courtyard, making it the perfect space for entertaining. You can fix summer cocktails in the kitchen while still throwing witty asides to your guests eating homemade hors d’oeuvres in the sunshine. You can seamlessly weave between the raucous poker players at the dining table, to the shameless gossips in the kitchen and the urban sophisticates enjoying the outside air without so much as touching a door handle.

On the Downside:

This Highgate abode is perilously close to the Mary Street Bakery, meaning you may find yourself having to take a second job to support your salted caramel donut habit. Although if you find the willpower you can jog it out at Hyde Park, or at the very least get a tiny dose of cardio as you walk up the hill to the Flying Scotsman for an afternoon beer.
