A series of olive trees and a Lilly Pilly hedge create a screen and give this 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home a sense of privacy without interrupting the views of the national park. A stone-paved driveway sweeps up to a 2-car carport and through to a garage that opens to the fully-fenced back yard.
A formal lounge room and inbuilt library/study ensure a pleasing welcome as you enter the front door. A serene space, away from the central open plan living area, this room offers an ideal spot for formal entertaining, quiet reading or uninterrupted study.
Adjacent to the lounge room is the main bedroom suite. A tinted picture window opens this neutral-toned space to the lush green of the front garden and views of the horizon. Featuring a walk-in robe, fully-tiled ensuite and plush carpets, this restful room links with the formal lounge to create a parents’ retreat away from the central living zones.
An open plan kitchen/meals/family room is at the heart of this home. Jarrah floors gleam thanks to filtered light from a series of large windows; a gas log fire keeps things cosy during the colder months while a deep verandah offers summer shade and a fabulous site for outdoor entertaining.
The kitchen is afforded views of the private garden and features a double oven, 5-burner hob, dishwasher and a corner pantry. Soft-close cabinets, an appliance nook and light, stone-look bench tops fashion a bright, practical workspace. A glass door slides open to the outdoor entertaining area and ensures easy indoor-outdoor living.
A separate junior wing contains 3 carpeted bedrooms – all with built-in robes – and a fully-tiled family bathroom. A separate W.C. and walk-through laundry, with a large linen press and storage cupboard, complete the junior wing.
Along the eastern side of the home, an outdoor entertaining area looks out to a tidy lawn and prunus trees providing seasonal shows of pink, claret and green. A small garden shed, cute cubby and various fruit trees form a charming garden and provide lots of room for play. Taking care of the garden is made easy thanks to automatic retic and water tanks, with regular lawn mowing included in the rent. Perhaps this home’s biggest attraction is outside the back gate: Mere steps from the backyard is the much-loved Heritage Trail with kilometres of biking, riding and walking.
If you are searching for a Foothills home that sees schools within walking distance, don’t hesitate – both Greenmount and St Anthony’s primary schools are a stroll away. This family home is an absolute charmer and delivers an elevated situation, ducted evaporative air-conditioning, a gas log fire, and a 2-kw solar array. The garden and patio offer superb outdoor living, and a gate in the back fence opens to the outdoor adventures on John Forest National Park and the Heritage Trail.
