The warm sandy tones of slate floors that extend throughout much of the home set the tone for interiors awash with natural light and a pleasingly serene palette of colours and materials. A formal living room sits at the front of the plan of this luminous Glen Forrest home. With a large south-facing window framing views of the garden and a slow-combustion fireplace, this welcoming room is a wonderful space for relaxing and entertaining.

The living space continues through a casement leading into an open-plan family room and meals area. Attention is immediately drawn to an expanse of north-facing windows looking across gardens planted with natives – a low-profile arrangement of textures and colours interspersed with the sculptural forms of eucalypts.

Three bedrooms and a family bathroom open off a central hallway. The main bedroom is fitted with a mirror-fronted robe and an ensuite powder room. Two of the junior bedrooms are also equipped with robes.

At one corner of the open plan is a generously proportioned kitchen with ample bench space, high-light windows and a large servery opening retaining a visual connection to the stunning outlook. Cream cabinets, jarrah trim, an electric oven and a 4-burner gas hob complete a kitchen up to the challenges of weeknight dinners and celebratory feasts.

A sliding glass door connects the family room to a north-facing deck and steps leading to a brick-paved outdoor entertaining area sheltered by a skillion roof. Brick paths meander through the gardens to the rear boundary, where a gate offers a shortcut to the Heritage Trail, paths leading the Glen Forrest Village and a bus stop. Raised vegetable beds, citrus trees, a woodshed/potting shed and a powered Colorbond workshop, put the essentials of an authentic Hills lifestyle in place.

Established gardens, a fully fenced backyard, and a lateral orientation give this 2089 sqm property a sense of privacy with the convenience of a central location. Minutes from bus stops, an easy drive from a choice of schools and with Mundaring Village and Midland both easily accessible, this property is a radiant beacon of comfort, convenience, and calm.
