Deco Dreams on Parke!
Sitting pretty on the corner of Parke Rd and Davies Crescent is this dreamy 1950’s Art Deco style family home.
Here modernism meets modern, a home brought into the future with full re-wiring and battery ready solar panels whilst retaining the gorgeous original details of this beloved architectural style. Framed by a white picket fence, green grass and fragrant flowering magnolias, this is a house for those dreaming of the fashion of Mount Lawley, the community of the Hills and the flourishing lifestyle of the fabulous 50’s!
Stepping onto the front veranda, covered by a classic curved roof, the formal entry to your home features a decorative arch to the central hallway and a separate entry to the lounge. High ceilings with characteristic Art Deco stucco press and cornices are superb features, complimenting the original polished floorboards and chic fresh eggshell paint throughout. In the lounge plantation shutters filter glowing afternoon light whilst an ornamental mantled fire place takes central stage. Walking through to the separate dining area you have the option to continue to the family room or turn into the kitchen. The family room is a renovated sunroom featuring exposed wooden roof beams, with exposed recycled brick, sturdy tiles and full windows with glass sliding doors to the backyard.
The kitchen backs onto the central hallway and features chalkboard paint for the artists or shopping lists, classic wooden cabinets and a convenient pass-through to the family room – great for watching children and dogs playing in the backyard through the windows whilst doing dishes! Moving down the hallway there are three double bedrooms with mirrored built-in-robes and plantation shutters, a modern bathroom with striking Art Deco tiling and a useful combined laundry/shower/separate toilet with backyard access.
The backyard is accessed via the home by a tiled, covered outdoor patio – perfect for outdoor activities when it is raining! Structured gardens with full reticulation and grass provide room for play for everyone, whilst the solidly constructed cubby house may only appeal to those of younger years. A second paved patio with Colorbond roof is another option for outdoor seating in all weather. To the side of the house almost 1/3 of the block is ready for your imagination to transform it to glory – urban farming, permaculture or a pool for hot summer days are all tremendous options. The yard also has level side-access to the large powered workshop, ready for projects to improve home, yard and self! For those with multi-generational families, teenagers or Millennials at home, a completely self-contained granny flat will bring much needed space and joy to all. Featuring a lounge room, bedroom, laundry/bathroom and a separate kitchen this functional flat has its own driveway access, security and entry.
