If you have been searching for a property that promises the unique combination of a fine character home in a spacious and secure villa then read on!
Kensington is one of the best kept secrets in Perth property, and it's rare that a villa of this calibre comes to the market. Nestled in a quiet corner of the suburb this exclusive gated home in a community of just seven. The high quality units are finished in red brick with cream capping and archway, truly reflecting the warm appeal that people seek in a home. The property is low maintenance, presents in immaculate turn key condition throughout and perfect for those who love to feel secure or lock up and leave, with an intercom for your guests.
The grand portico at the entrance of your villa has two beautiful cellar door gates and is shaded by a beautiful tree. You are welcomed home through Double French Glass Doors. Features include high ceilings, ornate cornices and skirting with stunning solid timber parquetry floors, white shutters, and a well-appointed kitchen with pull-out pantry. The home is connected to the NBN network with FTP and is wired for FOXTEL.
Afternoons can be spent lounging in the private courtyard adjoining the kitchen, with a fixed parasol to keep cool under. As the sun goes down the landscaped garden lights up and with a tranquil soundtrack provided by the waterfall, this is the perfect place to relax or entertain.
The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms with open kitchen/dining, separate lounge and laundry. All bedrooms have built in robes and air conditioning, fans, downlights and fresh carpets.
You will love the ambience created in the master bedroom, white shutters, a newly renovated modern bathroom with sleek black fittings, and a Hollywood Style Dressing Robe with stunning wallpaper and lighting.
Another winning feature of this home is the powered workshop area in the double garage that turns into a "Man Cave" with built-in projector and sound system. Here you can enjoy the Ultimate Escape, watching movies or the footy on your big screen. There is also plenty of overhead storage that keeps everything out of the way but within easy reach.
Out front, you will be immediately struck by the impeccable standards to which the Strata maintain the complex. From manicured verge lawns, automated security gate, secure common use/visitor parking bays, mature reticulated garden beds lining the elevated driveway and spotless paving throughout - this truly is one of the best presented and maintained developments in the wider area.
The gardening is tended to weekly and every quarter your gutters are cleaned and the roof inspected, so rest assured your home and the complex will be kept in pristine condition for many years to come. The Strata has strong financials, a healthy sinking fund and full insurance coverage, your home and investment are soundly protected. New owners and tenants receive a "Welcome Pack" to introduce you to your new home. The self-managed strata council have been working for years to lift and maintain the complex so the beauty is that this amazing standard of service is juxtaposed by low strata fees.
