CHARMER ON THE CITY'S DOORSTEP
4 Camfield Street
MOUNT MELVILLE, WA 6330
Just a five-minute walk from York Street, this charming home proudly displays some of the most beautiful features preserved from its 1950s origins.
Occupying an easy-care block of 415sqm, it will make a lovely home for a couple or single person, or as a rental investment.
Although the home would benefit from a little maintenance and a freshen-up to return it to its shiny best, nothing major is necessary other than a bathroom renovation. So it presents an ideal opportunity for a new owner to take on an easy project and add value.
A veranda, two leadlight windows and a leadlight front door enhance the home’s cottage style at the front.
The door opens onto a hallway, where jarrah floorboards and high, decorative ceilings create a lovely first impression. All in excellent condition, these continue throughout most of the home.
Leadlight also features in the set of double doors between the hall and the lounge, which is a comfortable, generous room with a wood fire. On the opposite side of the hall is the king-sized main bedroom, while the second bedroom – a big single – is at the rear.
The country-style kitchen has been modernised and sports white cabinetry with charcoal bench tops, a gas cooker in the original stove recess, and a corner window with a leafy outlook.
A bath with a shower over and the vanity are serviceable, but the bathroom could be renovated at a modest cost and look a million dollars.
At the rear, there’s a laundry with built-in cupboards, a separate toilet and a back door with steps leading down to the back garden.
A single garage and off-road parking for a second car, an outdoor storage shed and a private back garden are other advantages of this home.
Realistically priced at under $300,000, this property will appeal to owners or tenants for its lovely character as well as its proximity to the city centre. It’s in a quiet street just off Albany Highway, so cafes, restaurants, entertainment, shops, supermarkets and medical facilities are all a short walk away.
