Spectacular Character Cottage
*Open By Private Inspection*
A classic early 1900's cottage, brilliantly transformed to a masterful synergy of old and new; a spectacular fusion where original character blends effortlessly into powerful contemporary spaces; and a masterpiece of effortless style and refined sophistication.
Situated in one of the loveliest streets in Subiaco, where magnificent trees form a beautiful arched canopy of foliage above the road, this captivating family home boasts soaring ceilings, stunning satin jarrah floors, high skirtings, ornate ceiling roses and cast iron fireplaces alongside magnificent, modern open plan spaces.
Greeted by a black timber front door within an arched, recessed porch; the traditional hallway offers sightlines through the home to the light filled architect designed extension. The original front of the home hosts two substantial bedrooms - the gorgeous master is an idyllic adult retreat with beautiful ceiling rose, tall sash windows, elegant wall frame moldings, picture rails, cast iron fireplace and timber surround, fitted dressing room and lovely en-suite; the spacious second bedroom has identical character features with two built in robes.
The hallway open upwards into a double height void, with a spectacularly tall window to the sky. A third generous bedroom with custom desk overlooks the central courtyard. There's a stylish family bathroom and practical laundry with space for underbench washer and dryer and plenty of storage.
Wide timber steps lead into glorious sundrenched, north facing open plan areas where walls of glass frame multi-level outdoor spaces. The dining area is generous, seating 10 or more with 2 sets of bi-fold doors opening to both the central decked courtyard and large multi-tiered deck to the rear. Anchored by a sleek, well-appointed, white on white kitchen, family living is substantial, with a wall of bi-fold doors opening to the rear deck to create a vast indoor/outdoor entertaining space, perfect for large parties with plenty of room to dance!
The fantastic upper floor offers another inspired living proposition - a huge open plan studio with sleeping area, living/study zone and modern bathroom. It's the perfect space for teens to retreat, guests, extended family or au pair.
Add in beautiful landscaped front gardens with olive and cumquat trees, classic gabled façade, raked verandah and 117 Rupert St is an exceptional family home, warm and inviting, full of glorious natural light and perfectly placed to indulge in everything this highly sought after locale has to offer. A brilliant spot and walking distance to practically everywhere - Jean Claude, Boucla, Subi Arts Centre and Theatre Gardens, Kings Park, Subi Primary School and Farmer's Market, Farmer Jacks and just a short drive into the city or the beach.
