224 Bulwer Street Perth 6000 WA
THE UBER-MODERN EXTENSION AND FIT-OUT OF THIS CIRCA 1900'S HOME IS CRAZY-BEAUTIFUL
Just around the corner from beautiful Hyde Park in sought after location, is this amazing metamorphosis of a once lowly Turn-Of-The-last Century workers cottage into the
modern masterpiece that it is today. The contrast between the old original house and the sensational 21st century extention is architectually striking, but perfectly seamless.
A large open-plan space rigorously designed to allow the raw concrete walls and floors to be the centrepiece of the room, with floor to ceiling bi-fold doors to the courtyard
and an angled remote skylight allowing natural light to flood the whole area, it's visually stimulating despite its minimilist appearance.
With one bedroom and a second living room in the original section, the contradistinction between the areas is in evidence with original fireplaces and cornices creating a totally different feel.
Upstairs the huge space is being used as a lavish master bedroom with a 'Juliet Balcony'. There is room for an office in this space, or you could situate the bedroom downstairs and
have this as extra living; the property is very versatile. The zen-like courtyard is the perfect spot for long Summer lunches or evening dinner parties, it is secluded and tranquil and adds yet another dimension to the home; it's the ideal setting for gatherings.
In this friendly neighborhood, cafes and restaurants abound, a short stroll takes you into Northbridge or to the Mount Lawley cafe strip with its profusion of eclectic restaurants, wine bars, curio and flower shops. When you inspect this property, allow yourselves time to wander around the area, It's certainly a unique and special place.
