Beyond the lavish wrought iron gates, stone front wall and cottage gardens lies this beautiful renovated character home where no expense has been spared.

Built in the late 1920s and renovated five years ago, 17 Queens Crescent, Mount Lawley is a family home offering the finest of fittings, including top class Christian Lacroix wallpaper, stunning leadlight door detail and a large wrap-around verandah.

The owners have successfully paired stunning new light fittings, bay window seating and a sleek modern kitchen. Classic fixtures of the home’s original era include high ceilings, polished floorboards, ornate ceiling and cornice work and fireplaces.

“The owners have absolutely loved living there and the only reason they’re selling is that their lives are taking them somewhere else,” says agent Helen Bond, from Peard Real Estate Leederville.

One of the major drawcards of the four bedroom, two bathroom home is the spacious garage that doubles as a studio retreat with a home gym and games room.

Bond says the owners spent more than $200,000 on the below-ground swimming pool, landscaping and decorative wrought iron gates as part of the renovation.

“It’s a beautiful renovated character home,” she says. “It’s got all the character fixtures, beautiful light switches and high ceilings.”

Set on an 860sqm block with fully reticulated gardens from the bore, the property is close to the bustling Mount Lawley high street, cafes and restaurants.

The home has been listed for sale for $1.95 million.
