Under Contract


Beyond a lovely white picket fence on a splendid 380sqm (approx.) block lies this charming character, 2 bedroom 1 bathroom circa-early-1900s home that is conveniently located close to everything, right in the heart of Midland.

Overlooked by the entry verandah, the lovely front yard – complete with a lush green patch of lawn – is safe, secure and is the perfect place for pets to run around in. Soaring high ceilings and solid wooden floorboards are commonplace throughout and help preserve the property’s original nostalgia of yesteryear, with two large bedrooms off the hallway complementing a burning open fireplace and a reverse-cycle air-conditioner that help warm the lounge area in the winter – the latter even keeping things cool during those hotter summer months.

The kitchen and adjacent meals space features a breakfast bar that doubles as a computer or study nook, an electric-upright cooker and tiled splashbacks for good measure. The clean and functional kitchen also opens out to neat and tidy backyard that is very peaceful and will capture your imagination with its pleasantly overgrown Nasturtium creeper.

There is a paved area for outdoor entertaining, a corner garden shed, a chook house and your own “blank canvas” with plenty of room to do as you please. This 100-plus-year-old cottage is currently rented to a very happy tenant who is willing to stay on, however does need some “tender loving care” to restore it to its former glory or perhaps keep the front facade and bedrooms, transforming the rear into a modern oasis!

Stroll to bus stops, cafes, eateries, the lush Midland Oval, La Salle College, Saint Brigid’s Primary School, Midland’s North Metropolitan TAFE campus and Midland Gate Shopping Centre should you be interested in this adorable residence that is also very close to Midland Train Station, the St John of God Midland Hospital, major highways and arterial roads, Perth Airport, Guildford and even our picturesque Swan Valley. How wonderful!
