And this will take some bravery, but by George it’ll pay off. The old corner shop would make a perfect home office, consulting rooms, personal services space or shop (Council approvals required) whilst the attached house could be transformed into something amazing. Original Nissan & Sons Butchers Shop and later a Corner Store, this is one of only 5 corner stores remaining in Subiaco. Beware!! Not for the fainthearted!!
Kitchen / dining
Study / living
Front (former) shop / lounge
Unique block with 3 side access
Dual address – 142 Hensman Road and 120 Nicholson Road
Large shop space (or massive lounge) on the corner of Hensman and Nicholson Road with large windows on both sides – current Zoning is Residential, and successful application for change of use would need to be made to use this space for commercial purposes
Liveable kitchen (just!) with stone-look laminate top and laminate cupboards – a touch of decades passed
Stainless steel oven and gas stovetop, vinyl timber-look plank flooring. Half the ceiling is missing and the roof leaks
Twin archways separating kitchen and dining room
Dining room with sliding glass door leading out to patio
Master bedroom with ancient built in robe and north facing casement windows
Second bedroom with casement windows facing north and out to the garden
Third bedroom with casement windows and built in robe
Bathroom with tiles removed, bath and single basin – it doesn’t get more basic than this!
Separate WC with tiles to dado height – fancy!
Timber floorboards and high ceilings throughout – until you get to the very back!
Living room with ceiling rose and sash window (ceiling rose is hanging on for dear life)
Laundry with trough and direct external access. No attachments for modern conveniences such as a washing machine
All windows feature cracks and cobwebs
Dust and cracking included in the sale for added historical value
Art Deco style cornicing throughout
Zero setback from Nicholson Road – a huge benefit for builders / renovators / extenders
Classic corner shopfront, of heritage significance (Level 2) – streetscape must be maintained, with a Heritage Grant available to do so
Patio with clear alsynite ceiling covered in leaf litter
Jungle garden featuring 2 out-of-control trees, plus lots of other unidentifiable mature growth
Treehouse, most likely unstable
Garden shed – enter at your own peril
Very rickety carport off rear ROW lane
This home is located on the corner of a fairly active street and provides great access to transport, hospitals, Shenton College, UWA, CBD and Kings Park. It is just steps to the fabulous Wholefood Circus cafe and Vintage Cellars, and a nice stroll to the centre of Subiaco.
