Imposing and impressive this family home states its case for high standards and clever design from the start.
Established flowering natives flank the path to the wide, sweeping steps and up to the bull-nosed verandah. Richly-coloured, polished jarrah floors lead from the expansive entrance to an impressive home office / library. Sophisticated and subdued this room is sure to make work or study a much happier proposition and when you need a break, you only need gaze out the windows to an expanse of open sky and a fir tree dancing with the breeze.
Double doors connect the study to a luxury parents’ retreat with soft colours and ample space thanks to full-height built-in robes. The large ensuite boasts a granite-topped, double vanity with ample storage along one wall, while a shower and screened W.C. complete this sanctuary-like space. Adding to the sense of indulgence, a large walk-in wardrobe / dressing room adjoins the ensuite.
The success of the 2009 extension is most appreciated in the open-plan living zone. A large, modern kitchen and long, carpeted lounge wrap a stunning central alfresco pavilion.
If you love to entertain, this home is a dream come true. The large kitchen with expansive granite-topped benches, 900mm oven and 2-drawer dishwasher leads seamlessly to the central alfresco.
Enclosed on 3 sides and screened along the 4th, the extension has fashioned a sophisticated outdoor living room with views to the lush, paved garden. A timber-lined ceiling, rattan ceiling fans and tiled floor are the perfect balance of luxury and practicality. A decked platform sits in one corner of the alfresco, screened and wired for a spa.
The long loungeroom, with a large slow combustion fireplace, allows for multiple seating areas and is a lesson in comfortable relaxation. With double doors to the alfresco and multiple seating areas; it’s not hard to imagine multi-generational gatherings with the kids at one end moving in and out while those looking for more sedate interactions sit comfortably at the other end of the room.
Arranged in a separate wing of the home, are 2 double-size junior bedrooms. Bright, comfortable and inviting with built-in robes and ceiling fans, these plush rooms meet the needs of children of all ages or could be styled as impressive guest rooms. A family bathroom with a bathtub, separate shower and vanity is located in the junior wing as is the lovely bright, white and practical laundry.
This 5-acre property offers much more than an impressive family home. A large powered workshop, chicken run, and two 90,000-litre water tanks provide the framework for a fully-realised Hills life. There is the space and opportunity for a horse paddock and level lawn for play equipment. Minutes from the Mount Helena township, the property delivers rural seclusion and access to the amenities of town in equal measure. Mundaring is less than a 10-minute drive away, Midland CBD an easy 30-minute drive along the Great Eastern Highway and the Anketell Road school bus within walking distance.
