Many original 1938 features remain in a home that has been expanded to create a floorplan with multiple living zones, an open plan kitchen and meals area and a multipurpose activity/playroom/study. This property has space for everyone to do their thing, a below ground pool, a workshop with 3-phase power and a large outdoor entertaining area sheltered by a high gable roof.

A front porch edged with a low-maintenance garden leads into the first of the home’s living spaces – a generous family room with a high coffered ceiling, blackbutt floorboards and a slow combustion fireplace – the ideal setting for cosy nights at home, snuggled on the couch while the fire crackles. Doble French doors connect the family room to a multipurpose space suited for use as an activity/playroom, a formal dining room or a home office/study.

A timber-topped bench with an integrated breakfast bar surrounds an electric oven, 4-burner gas hob and dishwasher in the kitchen/meals area. A walk-in corner pantry offers ample storage. Views to the pool and alfresco entertaining area create a hub for family living, with easy movement from indoors to the fully fenced backyard and expansive outdoor entertaining area.

Jarrah floors, high ceilings and mirror fronted wardrobes bring a sense of space and calm to the two larger bedrooms, one of which boasts ensuite access to a family bath with a clawfoot tub. The third bedroom also has an ensuite and sits towards the rear of the floorplan, making it an excellent space for an older child or guests.

In addition to the 2-car carport, the level 2646 sqm block allows ample space for parking and vehicle storage. A 12m x 7 m workshop with 3-phase power and a concrete floor and a chicken coop and run are essential components of Hills living.

Steps from John Forrest National Park and kilometres of walking, riding and exploring, the property is within walking distance of Helena College and offers easy access to Mundaring Village and Midland.
