The story of this home is writ large as you move through the property. At the front of the home, two double bedrooms – both with original jarrah floors – are arranged either side of the central hallway. One bedroom – perhaps once a sitting room – boasts an original fireplace. The second bedroom adjoins a semi-ensuite. High ceilings and jarrah floors that gleam produce a sensation of comfort and welcome.
At the end of the hallway, the kitchen is centred around a Westral no. 1 Stove, forged in Samson Street East Perth in the early 20th century, the stove sits surrounded by gorgeous art nouveau-design tiles and is functional, but modern cooks will appreciate the electric oven and hotplates.
Adjoining the kitchen is a cosy lounge, high ceilings and a cosseting colour scheme make for an attractive quiet space. The inspired decision to install a decorative plaster arch brings beautiful light and views through the conservatory into the room.
Adjoining the lounge, a north-facing library leads to a third junior bedroom. This layout, which allows for access to the family bathroom, gives the option to create a separate mini-apartment for a teen, or spacious and semi-self-contained guest accommodation.
The back of the home has seen the greatest change and modernisation; a glass walled conservatory opens to a paved alfresco covered with shade sails. Flowing seamlessly from the kitchen to create an oh-so-practical outdoor entertaining zone, stone retaining walls, lawn and an outdoor W.C. complete this essential component of modern life.
Another modern necessity, the workshop / shed sits toward the rear of the property while you can experience a taste of a bygone lifestyle thanks to an impressive chicken run and coop.
Let the charms of this Hill’s original seduce you and take possession of your very own piece of local history. A brilliant location puts sporting facilities and the bustling Mundaring village within cooee.
