Built in the 1950s, this 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage was transported to its current site more than 20 years ago. The move was clearly a good decision – the home sings in its pretty Sawyers Valley address.

A sense of privacy descends as you enter a landscape of organic brick paving, formal gardens and a natural landscape. Inside, a soft colour palette and jewel-toned jarrah floors are emphasised by high ceilings and create a tranquil atmosphere and airy welcome.

It is in the small entry hall that the subtle, insightful renovations are first evident. Original jarrah floors lead to the open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge. The country kitchen features overhead and under bench cabinetry around a U-shaped benchtop. A freestanding oven and dishwasher are arranged to create a functional space.

The dining area flows to the lounge and out to the front deck. A slow combustion fireplace and reverse cycle air-conditioning deliver year-round climate control. The high ceilings and glass door to the deck balance the cosy cottage atmosphere beautifully. Original elements in place throughout underline the authenticity and effortless charm of the home.

A large main bedroom sits at the front of the property and is fitted with full-height robes and a ceiling fan. A picture window looks out to the skyline for the perfect beginning to each day.

Both junior rooms are a good size the first is fitted with a ceiling fan while the second – arranged at the back of the home in what was once a rear porch – adjoins a north-facing sunroom to deliver a fantastic study or private lounge for a teen.

An inviting terrace at the rear of the home offers a shady bower, with an original Metters stove providing quirky outdoor heating, this private retreat is sure to be a favourite spot year-round. Recycled brick paths meander through formal and natural landscapes to a series of terraces, a woodshed, garden shed and a double free standing carport.

Set to one side of the property is a powered workshop with concrete floor and driveway access. The fully fenced property adjoins a reserve and is an easy walk from Jarrah Creek Reserve and the Heritage Trail. Steps from Sawyers Valley Primary School, getting out the door in the mornings just got a lot less complicated. Good links to arterial roads mean it is a quick trip along Great Eastern Highway to bustling Mundaring Village.
