78 Louise Street, NEDLANDS




The best buying opportunity south of Princess Road to be sold AS IS. In original condition, a much-loved 1938 Art-Deco inspired classic Nedlands residence on 1012sqm, owned by one family for over 50 years.

We are selling this house with absolute transparency in respect to its condition. We’ve cleaned it up but not tried to hide anything, appreciating that it will be tweaked up at least to some extent, if not completely, by the next owner and we thought you’d appreciate seeing exactly what it is you are buying. The house is sound except for the ceiling in the flat roof 1970’s extension, which as you can see in the photos, has been propped up for the moment.

That said, this is a beautiful grand old home, steeped in history, reflecting the grandeur and elegance of a bygone era and rich in original character with beautiful leadlight jarrah windows, picture rails, wide jarrah skirtings and architraves, terrazzo floor, original fireplace, intricate cornices, ceiling roses and timeless jarrah floors hidden under carpeting.

Rear gardens showcase a fascinating and vivid history of traditional natives and indigenous plants, nurtured for decades by the current owners. A wide variety of stunning mature trees include red flowering gum, box elder, Chinese elm, bay and fig trees, Illawarra Flame tree, Fuerte avocado, weeping mulberry, river gum eucalyptus, Melaleuca paperbark, Queensland frangipani, Lord Howe Island palms, strelitzia, native plum pine with some slow-growing species planted in the 70’s.

It’s clear to see the massive potential here with huge scope to transform interiors using the great bones of the original home, and extend to take advantage of the superb north/easterly rear aspect, with space to add a pool, yet retain and incorporate magnificent mature rear gardens into your chosen design.
