A meeting of eras with an extension to match makes the family equation complete…
The symmetrical villa with art deco splashes, the best bits of the bungalow and one of the better sympathetic extensions we’ve seen make this one very charming meeting of eras, just metres from much-loved Koster Park.
Built in 1920 on a pool-ready block of some 746sqm, you simply wouldn’t know that its expansive open-plan rear was added many years later.
And so it’s almost impossible – whether inside or out – to pick where original ends and the addition begins in a four-bedroom home with lofty ceilings and Jarrah floors from front to back.
Art deco ceiling roses, leadlight, bungalow-esque architraves and big rooms punctuate an original section with three bedrooms and a formal lounge.
Take note of the chic hanging pendant lights, the ducted cooling vents, and built-in robes; just some of the mod cons that make this family friendly equation complete, just moments from Pembroke School and The Parade.
A breakfast bar protrudes from its galley to connect the Farquar kitchen – with Miele dishwasher, gas cooktop and stacked tile splashbacks – to open-plan living with French doors leading to long summer nights enjoyed on the paved entertaining area.
The extension also included the addition of a fourth bedroom that deserves its master status alongside a bathroom with classic checkerboard and subway feature tiling.
Cricket on the lawn, tea parties in the cubby house and quick bike rides to Koster Park; this extended salute to the past ensures play is Ipad-fee, just a walk from Trinity Gardens Primary School. The way it should be.
