The decked front porch of this stylish home leads to a formal entry with jarrah floorboards. The primary and second bedrooms sit at the front of the floorplan and offer large, inviting spaces with high ceilings, a split air-conditioning unit, a ceiling fan and an east-facing window framing each morning’s sunrise. Newly laid carpet sits on top of the original jarrah floorboards, and mirror-fronted robes provide good storage space in the second bedroom.
In the kitchen, the original hearth and high mantle contrast with the modern, minimalist vibe of cream cabinets, an appliance nook, stone-look benchtops and a 900 mm oven with a 5-burner gas hob introduced as part of the renovation.
The original back porch set off the kitchen has been built-in to create a spacious meal area with a pair of glass doors leading to a sheltered outdoor entertaining area overlooking the backyard. The family bathroom, laundry and a separate WC sit at one end of the meal area, and a multi-use space, currently styled as a home office, sits at the other. Carpeted, air-conditioned and fitted with a ceiling fan, this light-filled split-level room can be styled as a third bedroom with a sitting room, a nursery with a playroom or a plush studio space.
Central to the cottage layout is a cosy carpeted lounge room with a large casement doorway to the meals area, a ceiling fan and room for a large screen TV. Winter nights hunkered down in this cocoon-like space will feel like a treat.
The large, level backyard offers a blank slate with ample space for a productive garden, a chicken coop and a workshop. A corrugated iron shed sits at one boundary, while a driveway allows for vehicle access along the other.
Wundowie is a well-serviced country town with all the essential services needed for a self-supporting community, including a police station, medical centre, ambulance station, fire brigade, community centre, library, post office, daycare, fantastic sporting facilities and more. Wundowie Primary School is an attractive landmark in the town whose streets are laid out in an amphitheatre-style arrangement.
