Look at this eclectic property that’s filled with retro style

They say they don’t build them like they used to, and you’d be hard pressed to find a property that has all the stylish features of this modern classic.

Built in the 1950s and generously extended in the 1970s, this corner-block property is an entertainer’s dream. From the moment you pass through the lush exterior gardens and traverse the paved courtyards to the front door, you’re on a journey through timeless elegance.

The split-level home has a generous reception featuring an exposed timber ceiling, which lead off to formal and informal dining spaces, and a stunning living room. The living room’s inbuilt dark wooden shelves and cupboard instantly reminded us of Colin Firth’s stylish abode in A Single Man. This house oozes mid-century style.

There’s a recently renovated kitchen with an island bench, alongside a everyday meals area, and off to the side there’s a more formal dining room – perfect for dinner parties – complete with a cool retro serving hatch. The dining room looks out into an alfresco entertaining area, the beautiful rear courtyard and a low maintenance garden.  

Another wing has three ample sized bedrooms and a bathroom, while at the rear of the property there’s a fourth bedroom and second bathroom that has its own private sitting area and a separate entrance. It would perfect for an older relative or an independent teenager.

One of the many highlights of the home is a second living space on the lower level that features a sunken lounge, large bar area and a wine storage room. With huge walls that are crying out for some amazing art – this is one space with a lot of potential.

Surrounding the home are a series of courtyards, there’s a carport and a separate building with a studio and storage areas. This is a house where you could easily throw an extravagant party for two hundred guests, or you could just retreat to your private sanctuary.

Located in Coolbinia, it’s near parks, public transport and shops – and you’re right on the city’s door step. Just minutes away from the cafes of North Perth and Mount Lawley this a stylish residence with old school charm.
