Perth's older homes have so much charm, but often gorgeous features like timber flooring have been covered over by carpet or lino, the rooms are gloomy and the kitchens are not suited to modern living.

That was the case with this 1960s home, but the owners have lovingly renovated it, keeping the best of the era while upgrading other features.

Outside, the brickwork has been rendered with a limestone look - and it's been done front and back.

Inside, the carpet and lino are gone, and in their place are gleaming jarrah floors throughout. The lovely lounge room still has its amazing ceiling, ornate cornices and fireplace (non-functioning), with white plantation shutters adding a contemporary touch and letting in plenty of light.

The kitchen/dining area also has ornate cornices but the old freestanding cooker and 60s cupboards have been replaced by stylish cabinetry, laminate benchtops, glass splashbacks and modern appliances, including a stainless-steel oven, gas cooktop and rangehood, and a dishwasher.

French doors open to a rear courtyard and entertaining area. There's a nod to the past with some breezeblock-like brickwork and the old concrete porch along with a paved and covered alfresco area with plenty of room for entertaining.

The home is on 400sqm, so there's also room for some artificial turf and garden beds.

There are three light and bright bedrooms - the master has built-in robes - and two renovated bathrooms. These include the main bathroom with shower, toilet, bidet shower and vanity unit with the old mirrored 'medicine' cabinet retained, and the laundry, which includes built-in cabinetry, shower and separate toilet with bidet shower.

The home is a real charmer and so is the location. Cross Canning Highway and its an easy stroll to the river, Tompkins Park and Lucky Bay. Wireless Hill Park is just around the corner where you can wander among the beauty of nature and enjoy sweeping views. Plus, you have access to Canning Highway for commuting to the city or Fremantle, as well as easy access to public transport. Ardross Primary School and Applecross Senior High School are in walking distance, a Montessori childcare and kindy are over the road and when it come to shopping and dining out you're spoilt for choice with Garden City and the Riseley Street/Kearns Crescent hub nearby. And you can always head into Applecross Village or the Canning Highway precinct for more options.

Make this your new home, or possibly an office.
