Wide jarrah floorboards and a tall stone fireplace imbue this Wooroloo cottage with soul and a sense of history. The 1920s structure has been expanded with a north-facing sunroom, good sized bathroom, and a third bedroom added to the original open plan lounge/dining room, kitchen and two good-sized bedrooms.
A curving pathway leads to the shelter of a broad front verandah screened by tall trees. With ample room for seating and a table, this south-facing, outdoor living area is an ideal spot for idling away an afternoon.
The front door opens into an open lounge/dining room. Underpinning this cosy and inviting space is a tall stone fireplace fitted with a slow combustion fire and the satisfyingly – and increasingly rare – wide jarrah floorboards.
Mirroring the lounge/dining area is a generously sized kitchen with space for a small table. Pine cabinets, the pop of 1970s lime-coloured benchtops and the charm of an original woodburning stove bring character while a freestanding oven and built-in pantry offer modern practicality.
A bedroom sits at one end of both the kitchen and lounge; the larger of these has a wall of built-in robes and a sliding door opening to the vegetable gardens. The third bedroom sits at one end of the sunroom, with a spacious bathroom fitted with a tub, shower, vanity and W.C. at the other end. Large windows and a sliding door link the sunroom to a big, private verandah with a carport at one end.
Exploring this 10-acre wonderland, discovering the seasonal sequence of flora and fauna could become a life-long exercise. In addition to three dams and a winter creek, meandering paths, rustic bridges and a strategically placed seat offer adventure, places to dream and the chance to disappear into your own paradise.
Whether you move in and start living the dream, decide to renovate, extend or rebuild zoned for subdivision this magical property in the White Gum Gully offers a remarkable backdrop to your Hills hideaway
