Jarrah floors and ornate cornices speak to the origins of this welcoming home set in an elevated position at the centre of a gently sloping 1859 sqm block. A large corner window fills the open plan kitchen/family/meals area with beautiful filtered light and delightful view of gardens brimming with birds and other native wildlife. Double doors underscore this connection with the landscape to the full-length, alfresco entertaining area creating seamless indoor-outdoor living.

The kitchen features an electric cooktop and wall oven and under bench cabinets and enjoys views of the tree canopy and skyline. Reverse cycle air-conditioning, a slow combustion fire and large, south-facing windows ensure the year-round appeal of this open-plan space.

A central hallway leads to three carpeted bedrooms – one with reverse cycle air-conditioning – a cute retro bathroom with a pink tub, and walk-through laundry with separate W.C.

Surrounded with the organic form of a low retaining wall and sheltered by a high gabled roof, the full-length alfresco entertaining space has ample room for seating dining and barbecuing. A series of gardens and paths lead up to the above ground pool and paved gazebo. Shade, seclusion and the movement of distant eucalypts swaying against the sky are sure to induce a sense of calm and well-being.

A boardwalk leads past edged garden beds and a small woodshed as it continues towards the rear of the lot where a stand of tall trees creates a natural shady grove. A large, powered workshop with an adjoining carport and two paved parking bays – ideal for caravan and trailer storage sits towards the front of the lot.

The design of this property makes it clear that much care and thought have been given to sustainability.  Solar panels, rainwater tanks and automatic reticulation all contribute to ‘stepping lightly’. Local and bush tucker plants fashion a wildlife-friendly oasis where the birds and bees feel as ‘at home’ as do humans. Various exotic fruit trees – stone fruit, apples, citrus – raised vegetable beds and space for keeping chickens add to the property’s self-sustainable ethos.

Steps from kilometres of walking and riding along the much-loved Heritage trail, a sought-after Falls Road address also puts you within a stroll of the Parkerville Tavern and local reserves. The bustling Mundaring Village is a short drive away, so too a choice of schools.

The good life is waiting.
