Concealed by well-established gardens stands the original CSIRO research farm cottage, its floorplan expanded by enclosing the verandahs and its appeal boosted by a modern country kitchen and an updated bathroom. Surrounding this charming home is a nearly ten-acre expanse, a park-like haven dotted with majestic Wandoo and Marri trees.

A north-facing front verandah and an arbour draped in fragrant jasmine offer the perfect spot to begin and end your day, watching the lively dance of blue wrens, honeyeaters and green parrots as they flit and swoop around the garden.

A warm and inviting family room reveals itself as you enter through the front door, washed with natural light from dual-aspect glazing and with a slow combustion fire offering a natural focal point. Adjoining the family room is a second, flexible living zone with a modern country-style kitchen to one end and junior bedrooms to the other.

The kitchen has been renovated with a discerning eye. Cabinets painted a rich, earthy green reference the surrounding landscape and black stone benchtops, mirroring the weathered patina of a functional wood stove, add a touch of rustic elegance. The kitchen has been rewired and fitted with a new 4-burner gas cooktop and electric oven.

The main bedroom sits at one end of the family room; it boasts original window frames, a built-in robe, a ceiling fan and a northerly aspect delivering natural light of a beautiful quality. Two junior rooms sit along the east of the plan fashioned by enclosing part of the original wrap-around verandah. These bright and comfortable rooms enjoy gorgeous rural views.

At the rear of the plan, a large verandah overlooks an enclosed backyard to parkland and eucalypts standing sentinel in an iconic Australian landscape. A large iron shed bears witness to the history of the property, and towards the western boundary, a newer, insulated shed offers a modern workspace and shelter.

This charming cottage offers a haven from the world; verandahs beckon with enchanting views, gardens ring with nature’s melodies, and the beautiful ten-acre lot provides a sense of space and freedom.
