SHAKE IT UP, BABY
16 Wellington Street
MOUNT MELVILLE, WA 6330
Feeling in the mood to shake things up, go out on a limb, and craft something amazing? Here is a rare example of a before and after shot, right next door to one another.
Gazing at this sturdy, neat and classic weatherboard, fibro and tile home, on its huge subdividable block and you can see the potential to create an inner city home and reduce the mortgage.
Looking to the right of the home you see an example of the brilliance that can be achieved with a complete overhaul on this generous and rewarding home.
This exciting perspective can also be gained from delving deeper into the home itself and happening upon the renovated bathroom, at the cutting edge of style and summoning up the word “wow” to ones lips at the sight of it. Of course, we are in no way accusing this home of being a “renovator’s delight”- it’s a wonderful home as is- but if you have an eye for potential, you will be truly excited.
Located on the elegant slopes of Mount Melville and overlooking the lights of town, this home offers the option to live and enjoy its neatness and space just as it is, or create your own masterpiece just minutes from town.
Stepping up onto the wooden stairway and small portico deck that leads to the front door, you are introduced into the main entrance hall, where the first glimpse of solid floorboards and high ceilings greet you.
To the right, a grand and spacious formal lounge room, with a traditional open fireplace, floorboards, brick mantle and inset shelving on one side of the fireplace for your nick knacks.
While retaining the grandeur of years gone by, it still makes an ideal setting for your cinematic experiences and gear.
To the left, the first kind sized bedroom can be found, gazing over the yard via a big old window and featuring the same solid wood floors.
As the hallway curves around you happen upon the second bedroom, this time a generous queen size and making the most of chunky older style windows.
The combined kitchen and dining room is older style, yet neat and tidy, boasting the traditional wood cooker nook that has been upgraded to feature an upright oven and stove. Plenty of cupboard and bench space surround it, however the area would be a perfect candidate for a kitchen overhaul, perhaps an island bench and the latest of vogue decor.
The sort of decor that can, in fact, be found in the breathtaking renovated bathroom. Crisp black and white make an impact in the most whimsy of ways, with the high gloss black vanity a refreshing and beautiful change from the traditional crisp white, the contrast of the white vanity top making it all the more elegant. The chequerboard black and white flooring, white wall tiling, chrome features and clear glass double size shower cubicle complete this impeccably styled win.
Also at the rear of the home is the laundry space, separate toilet and a third bedroom with gabled ceiling and wood look flooring.
Stepping outside, the entertainers patio has also been given a birthday, with roller blinds creating shelter to make the space available for use all year round. The yard is nothing short of massive, a huge lawned blank canvas which allows you to creatively create your ideal setting, whether it be an extended patio deck, more garaging, play area or garden paradise or subdivide and reduce the mortgage.
Sitting beside the home, the older style garage finishes this picture.
Renovator with itchy feet or a first home buyer looking for that perfect foot in the door- here it is- on a silver platter!
