From the moment you step into the embrace of the wide front porch, it is clear that this is a home of exceptional charm and appeal. Screened from the road by a lush garden, the south-facing front door opens into a central hall with polished jarrah floors and a bedroom on either side.

Both bedrooms boast high ceilings and south-facing windows. The main bedroom has reverse cycle air-conditioning while the second bedroom connects to a second, smaller room – the perfect size for a nursery or an impressive walk-in robe/ dressing room/study.

The jarrah floors and high ceiling carry your eye through to the heart of the floorplan, an open kitchen, family room and meals area with sliding doors opening out to a delightful reclaimed brick paved entertaining area with raised garden beds and a water feature.

A slow-combustion fire, reverse cycle air conditioning, and ample natural light ensure the open plan is comfortable and inviting year-round. To one side is an impressive expanded and renovated kitchen with American white oak timber bench tops, an abundance of white panelled cabinetry, white tiles and a double electric wall oven, a 5-burner gas hob and a dishwasher. As sociable as it is practical, this is a kitchen to inspire those who love to cook and entertain.

An extension added to the rear of the original plan incorporates a good-sized bathroom with a tub, shower and WC, a laundry with a second WC and a large, air-conditioned activity room with garden views and direct access to the outdoor entertaining areas.

Legend has it that the shed set to one side of the backyard is made from mini-orb reclaimed from the original Chidlow Hall. An expanse of level lawn – ideal for a game of backyard cricket – extends from the rear verandah, and a pair of liquidambars stand sentinel beside an iron arch leading to a sheltered ‘garden room’. Gates allow drive-in access to the backyard and the perfect site to build a new shed or workshop.

There is no doubting the charm of this property, the sense of style and restrained hand displayed in the renovation and the enduring appeal of a quintessentially Australian backyard in a classic Hills setting within walking distance of the town centre, school and Heritage Trail.
