Once in a blue moon you stumble upon a property that makes you instantly feel right at home. This is certainly the case with 34 Brentham Street, Mount Hawthorn.
A perfect combination of “old meets new” in an area that has gained massive popularity for socialising and having a humble home, with the Mount Hawthorn Strip, Oxford Street Strip and the CBD all in very close proximity. The original property was constructed in 1938 and has housed several honest families over the decades, it goes without saying that the walls in your home will have plenty of stories to tell. Since its hay day 34 Brentham has undergone an extension, a makeover, and is ready for a new family in 2017.
A classic front porch is the first thing you see as you enter the secure gates from the street, with plenty of outdoor space for a furry friend and the kids to play around. A traditional entry hallway with warm timber floors feeds onto four generous bedrooms with extra high ceilings and decorative cornices, built-in wardrobes and ducted air conditioning for maximum comfort. One of these larger than life rooms boasts the house’s original fireplace to remind you that your home has some history, while crystal windows allow light to flood the space in an old fashioned way. Your enormous bathroom is functional, comfortable and very retro, with groovy tiling, plenty of storage and a deep bath perfectly completing the picture.
Walk past the study and arrive in a contemporary, open-plan space filled with natural light and huge timber beams adding to that rustic charm. Up above you have your rumpus area overlooking the entire home, perfect for a pool table or parents’ retreat. Downstairs you have the second living space just opposite the kitchen with plenty of room for a few couches to enjoy watching the footy on a Sunday.
Cook up a storm in the modern wraparound kitchen with palettes of timber keeping it true to the era. What most love about this kitchen is the abundance of storage and bench space, with the option of eating at the breakfast bar or at the dining table. The dining area is situated adjacent to the masterchefs at work and is perfect for entertaining guests on a Winter evening or simply sitting down to a meal with the family. This homely dining space feeds through some eclectic timber door onto the rear yard that would easily satisfy the leisurely needs of a thriving family or team of young professionals, with the added bonus of an outdoor workshop to be utilised as a studio, shed or home gym.
This humble home has been a pillar of strength for many families over the decades and will continue to do so for many years to come. The epitome rustic charm with a modern twist, all in an area that people are lining up to live in, you could be the next chapter in the story of 34 Brentham Street.
