Take your time and meander along the sweeping driveway to this enchanting property before giving in to its charms: Explore the 8-acre site, imagining everyday life in the expansive 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom home. Be inspired by the memories waiting to be made in the alfresco entertaining areas and dream of the life you could live surrounded by beautiful valley views.
An impressive entrance hall is the first glimpse of the effortless, organic style on display throughout this home. Local granite and exposed beams bring a wonderful, grounded atmosphere; light from the full-height windows highlight the high-ceilings and white painted woodwork.
Set to one side of the entrance is a large study; a pot belly stove and lots of natural light create the perfect home office with room for a large desk and seating area while a separate entrance means you can have private, at-home meetings away from family living areas.
A sense of nurturing and ease descends the instant you enter the high-ceilinged family room where ample space for comfy, family-sized sofas, a slow combustion fire and a servery through to the kitchen make for a fabulous area for everyone to gather and recount the day’s adventures.
While the family room is ready for the rough and tumble of daily life, formal lounge and dining rooms provide the setting for quieter occasions. Valley views and fireplaces promise long, contented Sunday lunches while French doors to the verandah, pool and gazebo create a flexible and inviting indoor-outdoor entertaining zone.
Whether catering for a big get-together of feeding your hungry brood, the large kitchen is a practical, well-designed space up to the challenge. An impressive granite hearth houses a wetback stove and is surrounded with ample bench space and white painted cabinets. An electric wall oven and hotplates, dishwasher and pantry, deliver modern convenience.
Adjoining the kitchen is an east-facing family/dining room with stacking glass doors opening to a wisteria-draped pergola. Slide back the doors to create seamless indoor-outdoor living or a quiet, private space to relax and soak in the natural beauty. Surrounded by reticulated lawn and a landscape of tall eucalyptus, this \area has the feeling of a romantic summer pavilion.
At the end of an adventure-filled day, spacious bedrooms await. Three good-size junior bedrooms offer a neutral colour palette, painted, exposed beams and built-in robes. In the main bedroom suite, French doors open to the verandah and pool area and ensure each your day begins with views across the valley. A walk-in wardrobe and recently renovated ensuite – with shower, vanity and W.C. – create an enticing parents’ retreat with raked ceilings and exposed beams ensuring a sense of space and light.
Additional accommodation – ideal for extended family or adult children – is available in the 1 bedroom flat with an adjoining studio. White painted brick and a wide deck with a valley outlook fashion an inviting space that includes an open-plan dining/lounge and separate kitchen and bathroom.
To one side of the property is a large, high-clearance, powered workshop. Additional storage is provided by a separate shed and both the main home and flat incorporate carports. The horse paddock – with water – includes a secure tack room.
Privacy, perfection, position. Arriving at this property feels like leaving the rest of the world behind, yet the bustling village of Mundaring is only minutes away, so too a choice of schools, sporting activities and miles of walking, riding and biking along the Heritage Trail. With room for everyone to spread out and do their own thing, indoors and out, this enchanting property is the ideal family home – designed to meet the needs of your family for decades.
