OVERLOOKING NATIVE AUSTRALIAN BUSH
If privacy is high on the agenda for you, then you can’t get much more private than this residence.
This lovely two storeys home is nestled at the rear of a level site. From your main bedroom and upstairs lounge room, you can literally see birds in the blanket of trees behind you, and hear their twitters each morning. Now that may sound a bit corny, but nothing is farther from the truth. How many homes in suburbia so close to the ocean offer you such a peaceful start to each day?
When you enter through double leadlight front doors into a large mirrored entry, you can see that the original builder did not skimp on the size of the entertaining areas. Laying hard wood jarrah flooring was also a smart idea to give the home a touch of class.
The huge lounge room flows into a formal dining area and out onto the rear patio area. The study also is off the entry, ideal if you have people coming to your home for business related matters.
The kitchen overlooks a massive family room where you can place a large table plus a lounge suite and coffee table, with still plenty of room to move around. This also flows to the outdoors where a large pitched rooved patio is extremely well sheltered from the Fremantle Doctor on those fresh Summer afternoons, when he comes to visit. This area is surrounded by nice green plants in low maintenance garden beds.
What is remaining on the lower level are, two good sized bedrooms with double built in robes, a laundry with its own built in ironing board and a bathroom with a separate bath and shower. There is also heaps of storage under the stairwell for those things that you can never find the right place to put. Some of you may want it to store your wine, tucked away and out of sight.
At the top of the stairs is a large private lounge room area for Mum and Dad with sliding doors leading onto quite a sizeable balcony. This is also on the eastern side of the home, protecting it from the sea breeze. The huge main bedroom has its own sliding door onto the balcony as well. There is a walk in robe to die for and at a pinch you could put a bed in there. Adjacent to this is the very large en suite bathroom with a double vanity.
Externally, there is a double garage with access into the main home, and plenty of space for another two vehicles as well tucked around the corner of the driveway . It would be perfect for tradies to park their car and trailer if they wanted to. Low energy reverse cycle air conditioning upstairs and downstairs means you can isolate where you want heated or cooled. I am told that in the roof space you can easily stand and if you wanted to put a floor on top of the joists you could create a very sizable attic area. Most homes don’t afford you this added bonus for extra storage.
All of this is just a short walk to the Wembley Downs Primary School, The Downs Shopping Centre and The Ocean Village too. It is also not far to stroll down to the beach for a swim or a bit of rod fishing in the evening.
