Properties on Kershaw Street are like red diamonds: rarely available, with a splendour and exclusivity enjoyed by the few lucky enough to get close to them. So when the opportunity arises to join this tightly-held Subiaco enclave, it is an opportunity not to be missed.
From its tuckpointed brick and deep verandah to its turned timber posts and hipped roof with vented gables, Killawarra is a character-filled delight behind a white picket fence. With off-street parking for three cars (two under the carport) and sensor lighting around the entire house, convenience and grandeur unite from the moment you arrive.
Anyone looking for Federation-era highlights will be immensely pleased as they approach the front door, with its beautiful leadlight surrounds. The spectacular decorative archway in the main hallway could easily draw your attention away from the superb, polished floorboards, but it undoubtedly amplifies the appreciation of the fabulous high ceilings with their exquisite decorative roses. The two spacious bedrooms at the front of the house feature fireplaces with fine timberwork and tilework, timber-framed casement windows with top lights, and built-in robes. In one bedroom, the fireplace is set into its own recess, incorporating a fretwork arch and oval leadlight window. Add some bookcases on each side of the fireplace, and you would have a cosy reading nook.
The wide hallway leads through to a third queen-size bedroom with built-ins, as well as the main bathroom. Modern, yet sympathetic to its grand surrounds, the generous space includes a twin shower system, feature tiling, ample storage, statement pendant light, heated towel rail, and underfloor heating. The feature tiling visually connects the adjacent separate powder room.
Across the hall, enjoy cosy evenings with family and friends in your theatre room, with a flued insert Heat & Glo gas fireplace, and sleek built-in cabinetry to hold your television and AV equipment. Within the original part of the house, you will find one more bedroom, double in size and currently used as a study. With four bedrooms and the spacious theatre room, only your imagination will limit the possibilities for this property.
An extension at the back has added the ease of modern living to this fine Federation beauty. A barrel-vaulted ceiling ensures a seamless continuation of airiness from old to new, while a multitude of windows and glass doors further draw the light in. The quality timber kitchen hosts an AEG oven and gas cooktop (set into a tiled and ventilated niche) amongst plentiful cabinetry and bench space, and offers a view over the garden. This voluminous space opens out onto a brand new deck, and with a combination of floorboards, tiles, and carpet, provides a versatile area for day-to-day living. A large laundry and second bathroom (with exceptionally pretty leadlighting) finish off this part of the home.
Despite the large size of the house, the 638sqm block has plenty of room for landscaped gardens, which surround the house on three sides. A variety of mature trees, bamboo, and other greenery line the pathway from the front to the rear, providing both privacy and shade to those outdoors, and a lush green view from within the house. Jasmine swathes the southern wall of the back garden, down to the outhouse storage and pedestrian gate to the rear lane, while verdant lawn and large trees (including a frangipani) adorn the front.
A winning combination of convenience and exclusivity has always enhanced the appeal of a Kershaw Street address. With very few houses, most of which are beautifully maintained, properties rarely come up for sale. Within easy walking distance to Rokeby Rd and the Subiaco shopping precinct, only moments to Kings Park, and close to the CBD and excellent private and public schools, the quiet streets in this part of Subiaco perfectly balance peace and proximity.
