As you step from the deep verandah through the front door, a large, light-filled office with corner windows and high, timber-lined ceiling offers the first indication of the natural materials, clever design and sense of organic style displayed throughout this brick and iron home. This calm, spacious workspace sits away from the central living areas to allow for uninterrupted work or study – if you can stop gazing out the windows.
Soaring ceilings, split-level design and full-height jarrah-framed windows fashion a central living zone bathed in dappled light and awash with views of the surrounding landscape. The large, timber kitchen is arranged across the higher level and features tiled floors, an electric hob, an oven and dishwasher. A European laundry hidden along one wall is a well-considered, practical inclusion. A large, timber floored mezzanine offers an additional flexible living space suitable for use as a crafting space, playroom or library.
Steps lead from the kitchen to the sunken family room and meals area; the split-level design retains the open-plan layout and spirit-lifting sense of space while creating a degree of distinction between living areas. High, timber-lined ceilings, a brick fireplace and slow combustion fire and views of the gardens, below ground pool, and tall eucalypts bring a sense of calm. Soft grey, aggregate-flecked, polished concrete floors continue the organic vibe while two sets of double doors to the verandahs offer seamless indoor-outdoor living.
Direct access to the rear verandah and pool extends the sanctuary of the main bedroom suite. This spacious adults’ zone features built-in robes, plush carpets underfoot, a ceiling fan and an ensuite with double vanity and double shower. A separate W.C. with an exterior door accessible from the pool area puts an end to wet feet and soggy bathers traipsing through the house.
Two spacious junior bedrooms sit on the upper level of the home and enjoy direct access to the front verandah – plush carpets, ceiling fans and built-in robes fashion flexible spaces suited to children of all ages. A family bathroom, with spa bath, vanity, shower and separate W.C. sits on the same level as the junior bedrooms.
The appeal of this Hills home is hard to resist. A site-sensitive design, considered choice of materials, ample natural light and a central open-plan, coalesce in an exceptionally liveable family home. A compacted driveway sweeps around to a 2-car carport and powered shed set toward the rear boundary.
A sought-after Stoneville address – adjoining an A-class reserve – puts a choice of schools on the doorstep and the services and amenities of Mundaring within easy reach. Kilometres of walking and riding are minutes away along the much-loved Heritage Trail at the end of the street.
