Description

With interiors aglow with the warm tones of oak and brush box timber and a backdrop composed of myriad shades of green, this two-storey family home is an oasis of calm set in a quiet enclave of Mundaring. Featuring formal and informal living zones, a first-floor parents’ retreat and a separate media room and studio.

This impeccably presented home, nestled behind gardens planted mostly with natives, invites you in via an east-facing verandah and a tiled foyer. To one side, a sunken formal lounge and dining room offer an impressive space for entertaining. The dining area features gleaming floors of polished brush box. A large window frames views of the garden and the flit and flutter of local birdlife.

Space for informal living and entertaining spans the rear of the home with an open-plan kitchen and family room, a media/activity room and a separate studio/study. Warmed by a slow combustion fire, the family room opens out to an expanse of outdoor entertaining set under a pitched roof, boasting built-in barbecues – gas and coal – and a range hood.

The central living zone is an inviting family hub with a family-friendly kitchen defined by the long sweep of a U-shaped benchtop with an integrated breakfast bar. Tasmanian oak cabinets sit above and below, and a parquet floor is bathed in natural light from a large corner window. Ample space for cooking and entertaining, a dishwasher, a 5-burner gas hob and a gas wall oven with combined electric grill means the kitchen is ready for the challenge of weeknight meals and family celebrations.

Junior bedrooms are arranged on the ground floor around the shared family bathroom, a separate WC and the walk-through laundry. Each of the bedrooms is carpeted and fitted with built-in robes and a ceiling fan.

The first floor is given over to a spacious parents’ retreat. This flexible space comprises a small gallery at the top of the stairs with space for bookshelves, a separate sitting room – previously used as a nursery and a study – and a large principal bedroom with a built-in dressing table. A private balcony overlooks the front yard and offers an idyllic spot for breakfast on the weekend or cocktails at the end of the day. A walk-in robe, chic ensuite and separate WC complete the first-floor layout.

In the fully fenced backyard, gardens and lawn terrace extend to the western boundary; a pair of garden sheds for storage and a powered workshop with drive-in access fashion a practical backyard with space for kids and animals to play and a workspace for hobbies. The thriving gardens are maintained by multi-station automatic reticulation.

 

Walking distance from the bustling village centre, this property maintains the air of a rural hideaway thanks to an adjoining reserve. Local schools, the library, the much-loved sculpture park and access to the Heritage Trail are all on the doorstep.
