6 Mitchell Street

In 1964 my family moved from East Cannington to 6 Mitchell Street Maylands (now part of Mount Lawley). Presently for sale, it is described as having a sublime location within walking distance to CBD—a little optimistic, I think—at the "fantastic price" of $1,450,000.

The real estate agents write:
This large double-storey character home set on 1012sqm and located in the sought-after Mt Lawley/East Perth river precinct is the perfect family home. 
Offering a flexible floor- plan with both formal and informal living areas, plus glimpses of both the river and city skyline from the upper level. There is a large, private front verandah on which you can sit with a cup of tea and a large covered terrace at the rear of the home overlooking the lap pool (the pool is a combination of lap and leisure pool). 
It also has wonderful access to the Graham Farmer freeway, CBD and Claisebrook Cove where you will find all manner of restaurants, café’s and bars overlooking the beautiful Swan River. Banks Reserve, beautiful parkland on the river, is a 2 minute walk with cycleways and walkways all along the river. Many local residents take the opportunity to walk to work from here. 
This is a lovely quiet area in which to live.
