“Love the shoes, love the bag, love everything, love to,” as George said to Kimmy in the movie My Best Friend’s Wedding. When you make your inspection of No 8 Gerald Terrace you’ll most likely say; “Love the location, love the house, love everything, love to (make an offer).”
Gerald Terrace is set in a high part of Northam just off Throssell Street, near Gordon Street. It’s a sought-after neighbourhood. Less than a 100m away is St Joseph’s Primary School where you can watch your kids toddle off to school and arrive safely at the front gate.
And it’s just a little over 1km to Northam’s Rec Centre, Aquatic Centre, Youth & Family Park and McDonalds. How’s that for location?
The dwelling is a fine example of the characterful homes that were built at the end of the Art Deco era of the 1950s. Features include red brick/rendered dado exterior walls, authentic jarrah floor boards polished to a beautiful gloss, high skirting boards, wide architraves, tall ceilings with fancy cornices and generous room sizes.
There’s a front verandah, roomy entrance hall (more like a hotel lobby), formal dining room and big lounge room with slow combustion room heater both rooms having a sunny Northerly aspect, a modern kitchen loaded with cupboards and an attached butler’s kitchen.
A long central passage leads to the main bedroom and another bedroom off it, or use it for a parents’ retreat/study/dressing room, then there’s another bedroom, the original bathroom with separate tub and shower recess, a linen press and the door to the vestibule.
A vestibule is sought of like a back entrance hall but this one is gigantic, is ’T’ shaped contains the toilet and laundry and has oodles of room for second fridge/freezer combo, extra storage cupboards, you name it.
Off the vestibule is an activity room then through to another bedroom, plenty of different zones for different members of the family.
There’s electric hot plates and oven, electric storage hot water unit, ducted evaporative air conditioning and the wood fired room heater in the lounge.
The land size is 564sqm, so easy to maintain, and is situated on the corner of Cody Street.
