88B West Road, Bassendean
UNIQUE HOME IN HISTORIC LOCATION
Arriving at this romantic rear house is a delightful surprise. The word charming springs to mind, but don’t let its gorgeous façade of red brick, render and weatherboard cladding fool you. This 4x2 residence has loads of space for the next family to fall in love and make it their new home.
A grand double heighted entrance and sweeping staircase immediately set the tone. Although built in 1999, the property oozes character with its decorative and vaulted ceilings, wooden floors, arched doorways, wooden windows, high ceilings and wall panelling. The quite special interior involves Art Deco design features seen for example in the light fittings, ceiling mouldings and door design.
Downstairs has a flexible floor plan with a choice of two rooms for dining and living, one of these rooms leading out through French doors to an undercover alfresco area. The kitchen is at the heart of the living space with plenty of storage, dishwasher and gas stove. Also, downstairs are a massive bathroom/laundry with direct outside access, and two charming bedrooms, one with an external door which suits independent living or a home office.
Upstairs evokes plenty of drama with the grand staircase leading into an elegant loungeroom. The spacious master suite has a walk-in wardrobe to rival any standard-sized bedroom and a roomy en-suite bathroom with a corner spa bath. A second very spacious bedroom on this level has built-in wardrobes and a separate toilet/hand basin.
The charming garden wraps around the home like a warm embrace. Cottage style planting, established fruit trees and garden beds, and the prettiest powered shed you’ll ever encounter. The garden is well fenced, partly in new Colourbond, making it ideal for small children and pets to frolic in safety.
Situated down a long driveway the only noise you have to contend with are the sounds of playing children, birdlife and the Mr Whippy van. The location is super-convenient: it’s only four doors from the local primary school, and nine doors beyond that to Bassendean’s historic village, with no shortage of dining and shopping options. Within easy walking distance are the Bassendean train station, parks, the river and Bassendean Oval, home of the WAFL League’s Swan Districts Football Club.
