This sophisticated country home is a stunner with the hallmarks of a quality build and thoughtful design: Polished concrete floors, a panorama window, copper sinks, mica-flecked granite benchtops and on-trend, soft grey walls with crisp white trim fashion a home that is at once welcoming, practical and delightfully modern.
A wide front door offers a generous welcome as you step into a spacious foyer where polished concrete floors and a modern neutral colour scheme declare the on-trend aesthetic employed throughout the property.
Plush new carpet in the lavish principal suite creates a calming and cossetting atmosphere. With ample space for a king-sized bed and sitting area, the main bedroom adjoins a large, walk-in wardrobe and stunning, fully tiled ensuite — a double vanity with copper basins, double shower and a separate W.C. fashion a resort-worthy bathroom.
Central to the home’s family-focussed floor plan is an open design kitchen, meals and family room and a semi-separate home office/study. A panorama window in the living area brings a slice of the surrounding countryside into this central space, and two large, glass doors to the elevated, south-facing deck offer seamless indoor-outdoor living.
With a high gabled roof, steps to a concrete patio and a screen of lush tropical plants, the elevated deck is open to gentle breezes and rural views. Offering a delight, shaded venue for alfresco dining, sunset cocktails and blissful daydreaming as you gaze at the gently swaying canopy of Chinese tallows.
The kitchen features granite benchtops with mica flecks echoing the warm tones of the copper sink. A 900 mm oven, 5-burner gas hob and 2-drawer dishwasher. A large walk-in pantry, deep, soft-close drawers and a tinted mirror splashback reflecting the chic beauty of this functional space deliver a kitchen that will delight the most passionate of home cooks.
A separate junior wing with three good-sized bedrooms featuring plush carpet and built-in robes sits off the central living zone along with a family bathroom, separate W.C. and a walk-through laundry. The bathroom features a tub with a view, modern vanity and shower.
‘Workshop’ seems inadequate to describe the limestone and jarrah structure that sits towards the eastern boundary of the fully fenced 5-acre lot. Three-phase power, large barn doors offering drive-in-drive-out access, a mezzanine and adjoining carport/verandah create a flexible 17 m x 8 m space. It is not difficult to imagine decorating this chic, rustic space for a country wedding or weekend party.
Country life needn’t be without style or modern convenience; this impeccably presented home offers contemporary living in a picture-perfect rural setting. The services and amenities provided in the bustling hubs of both Mundaring and Northam are around 30 minutes away via Great Eastern Highway.
