Framed by trees and set back from the road, this custom home is a treasure hidden right under your nose, only 1km from town. Barely four years old and freshly painted, it was designed and built for an environmentally conscious and active family who enjoys all the earthly pleasures of cooking, gardening, entertaining, relaxing and playing.
Making the most of its north-facing orientation, the spectacular main living, dining and kitchen room features 4.2m cathedral ceilings with minimalist negative detailing and a huge highlight window. Designed using passive solar principles, the polished concrete floors provide thermal mass that capture heat in winter, while the verandah provides shading and cooling in summer. Superb feature lighting, ceiling fans and a reverse cycle air-conditioner ensure that this spacious room is comfortable all year round. Wide sliding glass doors open onto the beautiful raised Jarrah deck that wraps the inside of this L-shaped home. The concrete alfresco entertaining area is flanked by recycled red brick herb beds, in easy reach of the kitchen, and an extensive lawn beyond.
The main living area is anchored at one end by a recycled red brick fireplace that houses a new slow combustion wood stove, and at the other, by the stunning bespoke kitchen, which will have serious cooks salivating. It features extensive natural oak cabinetry designed and made in Italy by Arrital, sleek stone benchtops, top quality Miele appliances including two ovens, an induction cooktop and dishwasher, two separate sinks, and a huge walk-in pantry. Storage enough for the most enthusiastic of cooks, this is a dream kitchen by anyone’s standards.
A convenient glass pocket door joins the main living area to the massive multi-purpose activity room and enables a visual link between the rooms while creating acoustic privacy and thermal efficiency. A kids’ paradise, the games room is big enough for a lounge suite and TV area, table tennis, bookcases, desk / art tables and so much more. Two full-sized bedrooms with large built-in robes and a modern family bathroom open directly onto it, wasting no circulation space. At the other end is the enormous fourth bedroom, which was designed to fit a multi-purpose office and spacious guest suite. Overlooking the vegetable gardens, it has vaulted ceilings, reverse cycle air-conditioning, feature and task lighting, a fan and large north-facing windows that flood the room with light.
Enjoy views of the bush from the private master bedroom which, like all the bedrooms, features premium New Zealand wool carpets, LED downlights and ceiling fans. In addition, it has a large walk-in robe and a sleek ensuite with double sinks, large shower and toilet. The functional laundry offers plenty of storage and space for additional fridge / freezers. It opens onto the utility area on the south side of the house, which has a large custom-built clothesline, covered hanging bike rack, firewood and bin storage area.
Foodies who love to grow, cook and eat their own delicious organic produce will delight in the eight raised vegetable beds, which provide enough growing space for the most avid of green thumbs. Designed along permaculture principles, this property is a Garden of Eden featuring an established asparagus patch, blueberry hedgerow and an orchard bursting with fruit trees of every type. Better yet, the entire 2,200 sqm block is fully reticulated with a sophisticated irrigation system that utilises groundwater from two wells and a tank before diverting to mains water. The house is rainwater-ready with its downpipes all linked to a single outlet ready for connection to a larger rainwater tank. Enjoy a guilt-free green lawn in summer thanks to sub-surface reticulation connected to the biological ATU that recycles every drop of water from the house. Top quality Fronius 5kW solar PV and Apricus solar hot water systems make good use of the roof space and provide reliable and sustainable power.
They say location is everything in real estate and this fantastic property is no exception. The newly-built Mundaring Arena, recreation grounds and golf course are but a minute’s stroll through the adjoining bush. Mundaring town centre with its shops, cafes, pubs, library, parks, schools and transport is all at your fingertips. If cycling or walking is your thing, cross the road and set off on an adventure along the 30km of Heritage Bridle Trails that crisscross through the local area.
