12 Stokes Street, WHITE GUM VALLEY WA 6162
Creating Some Stoke!
A CLASSIC white picket fence and a swathe of lawn set the scene for domestic bliss in this Stokes Street, White Gum Valley home.
From the wide timber deck fronting the post-war cottage you could imagine you are across the road from a private parkland.
The dense planting of trees disguises its real purpose as a sump, and the greenery is thanks to people living on the street, which is hardly surprising given WGV’s reputation for community spirit.
The deck is a great spot to watch the sunset, and Fremantle’s annual fireworks, not to mention a multitude of birdlife.
Built in 1959 the original section of the home has attractive period architrave around the high ceilings, and rich jarrah floors underfoot.
The former lounge is now a spacious bedroom with almost floor-to-ceiling windows and doors on to the deck.
The central kitchen is a meeting of old and new, as it morphs into the delightful dining/living extension. White stone tops the sweep of benches in the kitchen, including a breakfast bar, which is just the shot for a quick breakie before work or school.
Recently renovated there’s plenty of soft-close drawers and cupboards, including a large pantry. Huge corner windows in the family room look out on to a beautifully landscaped garden, and alfresco area.
Protected by a high roof the alfresco is perfect for breakfast on non-working days, to wind down in its relaxing ambiance. Or invite friends and family over for a get together, as the owner has done on many occasions, easily hosting up to 50 guests.
WGV’s many trees peep over high fences, adding to the greenery of the garden, where lush flower beds are easily watered thanks to reticulation.
Limestone terraced lawns lead to a large powered shed, which is the perfect man cave.
The lovely WGV Primary School is a 10 minute walk away and there’s a heap of shops and cafes close to hand.
