Featuring four bedrooms plus a study, two bathrooms and a powder room, and a choice of living areas, this superb home in Wembley is well-suited to the family. It is conveniently situated in the Wembley school zone.
Although it presents as a classic heritage home, it is actually only around 15 years old, featuring lovely recycled jarrah floorboards from the original dwelling.
The new design is stylish and modern, with a comfortable layout and stunning rear outdoors, but still includes plenty of character and charm.
