House - PERTH WA

This is an extraordinary landmark Perth home, best known for its conical corner turret fondly referred to as the ‘Witch’s Hat’ and retaining many of its glorious Federation character features like a beautiful bay window, decorative plaster work and jarrah floors and is ideally located just a gentle walk away from Perth city.

Having undergone a substantial refurbishment and renovation in 1996 to both preserve and enhance its many classic Federation features, the “Witch’s Hat” now affords substantial accommodation and amenities that include a combination of 16 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and a commercial sized kitchen as well as administration offices and communal lounges which would allow for a wide variety of uses.

It’s location is sensational, just a kilometer from the Perth city center, close to Aberdeen Street entertainment strip, right opposite the Robertson Park Tennis Centre and in a previous life has been an award-winning backpackers hostel.

You’ll love the solid limestone construction and decorative tuckpointing on the striking exterior, before taking the steps up to the bull-nosed veranda and entering the wide central hall with its jarrah floor boards which flows right down to the spacious central lounge with its beautiful stained-glass windows, rear dining rooms and that enormous kitchen.

There’s a huge central covered alfresco area and has rear lane access, is set back from Palmerston Street at the front with parking spaces behind the automatic front gate. With So Many Options, this property is a standout among a mix of stately homes, restaurants and offices nearby creating an urbane atmosphere for an exciting inner-city lifestyle.
