This family friendly home is the blueprint for downsizing from a large rural property without feeling hemmed in. The 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home delivers an expansive sense of space indoors and out. A level lot of just under 2 acres features a selection of productive fruit trees, a powered workshop and wonderful L-shaped verandah overlooking a central lawn and a sunken gazebo. High ceilings, exposed beams, large windows and generous proportions fashion a big-hearted home that includes a junior wing with a separate activity room and massive games room suited to multiple uses.

Set well back from the road on a wide frontage block with dual access, this sizeable home offers formal and informal living, a wonderful L-shaped verandah overlooking lawn and gardens, and a vast, park-like backyard dotted with fruit trees. The front door opens to reveal a sunken lounge with a high ceiling and exposed beams; this formal entertaining space features a gas log fire, south-facing windows and a bar built into one corner. It is the perfect place to relax at the end of the day.
A step up from the lounge leads to a formal dining room that opens to the kitchen. The kitchen features a high breakfast bar, an electric oven and cooktop and a 3-door pantry. A servery opens to the dining room at one end of the kitchen, and at the other, there is ample space for a kitchen table. Windows and a sliding door link the kitchen to the verandah, a sheltered outdoor living space edged with a central lawn and offering the ideal setting for morning coffee or evening drinks.
The volume of this home’s interiors is impressive, never more so than in the main bedroom, a vast space with large corner windows to the south and east, twin walk-in robes and an ensuite. The junior bedrooms are arranged in a separate wing, along with the family bathroom, a generous laundry/utility room and a separate shower and WC. The junior bedrooms are oversized, welcoming and centre around a large activity room with an exposed beam ceiling, a gas bayonet and windows and a sliding glass door to the verandah.
A huge games room with a soaring ceiling and exposed beams is found at one end of the verandah. This flexible space will happily accommodate a billiard or ping pong table or could be styled as an impressive ‘man cave’, teens’ retreat, or creative studio.
The central lawn extends to meet a series of paved terraces interspersed with garden beds; this fenced garden is begging to be planted with vegetables or flowering annuals. Beyond the paved terrace is an expanse of a park-like backyard with garden sheds and a powered workshop at one side, a small home orchard and lawn dotted with majestic gum trees.
Delivering the freedom to do what you love on a manageable scale. Minutes from the bustling village of Mundaring, yet surrounded by enough land to feel removed from the hustle and bustle of town, this property gives you the best of both worlds.
