Presented by Claude Iaconi of Edison Central, behold one of inner city Perth's most extraordinary residences, steeped in a fascinating history that will captivate those with an appreciation for serene, imaginative, and creative surroundings on the very fringe of the CBD.


Dating back to 1892, this charming 3-bedroom cottage, adorned with a chalet-styled portico, once housed a double-storey stable at the rear, resonating with the echoes of pounding hooves and clanging milk bottles. A collaboration in the 1980s between the then-musical owner and renowned architect Brian Klopper breathed new life into the former hayloft, transforming it into a split-level, jarrah-floored multi-use space.


While the original home stands as a testament to its age, meticulously maintained and a source of pride for its owners, its exterior charm has remained unchanged for over 130 years. Prepare to be pleasantly surprised as the front door unveils an interior that defies the expectations of a "standard 3x2 floorplan." The stable's extension and renovation took precedence, yet the colonial paned windows, picture rails, and open fireplaces in each of the three bedrooms showcase the home's historical character and is immaculately maintained. A timber-floored central hallway guides you through a formal lounge room, leading to the informal living domain with a sunken kitchen to the left.


The kitchen, featuring paneled jarrah cupboards and ample bench space, is adorned with an old Metters wood stove nestled in a wide chimney breast, adding a touch of vintage charm. The open plan living space's upper area, a generously proportioned family room, seamlessly connects to a tranquil alfresco area through twin French doors, offering a delightful space for year-round entertaining.


Venture further into the home to discover a bathroom adorned with an original cast iron bath, supported by brass claws. Marble tops, twin vanities, modern tapware, bidet, and stained glass skylights contribute to an elegant and sophisticated ambiance. Beyond the bathroom, the laundry and a former rehearsal studio, a vast and intriguing space complete with a glassed sound engineer's booth, toilet, and ante room, opens up possibilities for various uses – from a music haven to a games room, cinema, art studio, or even a private nightclub!


Upstairs reveals a sprawling area offering options such as storage, office space, open plan accommodation for teenagers, studio apartment, art gallery, or dance studio, presenting a wealth of possibilities within the expansive 232m2 converted barn.
