235 Forrest Street, PALMYRA WA 6157
Green Gables in the Heart of Palmyra
First home buyers, investors and downsizers will love this opportunity to own a slice of Palmyra on a quiet community-minded street, close Freo and the City. Sitting atop this spacious 482 sqm street front strata titled block, this character-filled 2 bedroom 1 bathroom cottage home is filled with personality and is brimming with possibility.
Set back from the street and surrounded by lush lawn this north-facing weatherboard/fibro home offers the perfect lifestyle year-round. Stop imagining sitting on a veranda in the warm winter sun as you gaze out across the valley, because now you can live it! Once inside, the feelings of warmth continue with wood-finish flooring as the northern sun streams in through the living room window – offering you the best kind of cosy for your day-to-day living. With a feature wall offering a traditional serving window, make your way through to a well-proportioned galley-style kitchen where everything you need is well within reach. A feature red-tiled backsplash behind the gas stove-top and oven fill the space with flavour.
Your spacious master bedroom enjoys the same warm winter sun with north facing windows and reverse-cycle air-conditioning ensuring that you remain snug and comfortable throughout the year. A carpeted second bedroom with sliding door access maximises the space and offers soft natural light via a protected west-facing window. A family bathroom offers cool coastal tones and natural light creating a relaxed vibe.
From your kitchen move effortlessly through to the now fully enclosed sleep out – an enormous space the width of your new home – and let your imagination run wild with possibilities. Whether this is the perfect play area, or a luxuriously spacious home office, the options are limitless. Making your way to the rear of the property, you will find old-school paving and an excellent external storage area for surf boards, wave-skis or whatever your heart desires. A garden shed ensures the more expensive toys are safe and secure.
A pergola covered outdoor entertaining area to the side of the property is perfect year-round with the northern sun warming you in the winter months. Add a virginia creeper or grape vine to the pergola for summer shade and increase the lush greenery surrounding the property which already makes the outdoor area truly magical.
This vibe continues with this cottage home’s superb location. Walking distance to local shops and dog-friendly parks, this property is ideal for exploring the neighbourhood on foot, and only a short walk to Marmion Street making public transport the natural choice for travel into Freo or the City. Only a short distance from Point Walter, this is also a fantastic location to start exploring the area from the water. With this home you are investing in a relaxed lifestyle for years to come.
