“It’s easy to imagine living in the heart of Leederville. The cafes, restaurants and bustling high street that you can emerge yourself in nightly. It’s an easy, vibrant, and full-filled sense of community. However, it’s the surprising things about living at 178 Carr Place that were special. The natural sunlight that pours into the home, the open planned seamless flow from indoor to outdoor, and the appreciation of its history yet convenience of a new build. We adored the Leedy life and was a privilege to immerse ourselves in it.”
