Can you look beyond the occupant’s humble goods and chattels and let your mind’s eye imagine what this house could look like when you’ve put-your-stamp-on-it and called it home?
It’s a great brick and tile home built around 1935 and displays elements of the Art Deco architectural era in its leadlight windows, fancy ceiling cornices, jarrah floor boards, chimneys and fire places.
The front porch and door open to the home’s central hallway where the lounge, two bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen run off.
A characteristic of kitchens of yesteryear were their large dimensions with plenty of room for the dining table. This one is no different.
There’s a vestibule that separates the kitchen and third bedroom from the toilet and back entrance. It’s a handy room for the second fridge/freezer, computer work station and kids’ activity zone.
A brick paved and concrete patio adjoins the rear of the dwelling covered by a gigantic Colorbond gable roof. Beyond is the laundry which, in the 1930s, was referred to as the wash-house and they were nearly always out-the-back. Beyond the laundry is a lockup garage while a drive-through carport is attached to the side of the house.
The block size is 1,013sqm and what a super location !! It’s oh so central, just 220m down Forrest or Ord Streets to the Avon River foreshore, about face for a 250m walk up Forrest Street to Howlett’s Liquor & General Store, turn around again for a 230m stroll along Hampton Street to the Northam Senior High School.
The property has a very obliging tenant not on a fixed term lease so vacant possession can be given at settlement.
