Like the nest of an eagle, this home looks down from a commanding height at the surrounding countryside. Nothing disturbs the perfect quiet except the occasional twittering of parrots or an amused kookaburra. The current owners have spared no expense in the ambitious build of this solid quality home sitting proudly on its huge granite shelf.
As soon as you set foot on this breathtaking ten-acre block, you fall in love with the panoramic vista that includes the City of Perth and the bountiful Swan Valley spread out like a giant patchwork quilt below. At night it is a fairyland with clear skies perfect for telescope enthusiasts and a matchless grandstand for watching fireworks on New Year’s Eve and Australia Day.
The house has many windows to take advantage of the views and includes two irresistible window seats. The interior has high ceilings, beautifully coloured Merbau timber floors, formal and informal living areas and spacious bedrooms with built-in wardrobes. It is fully reverse-cycle air-conditioned and has cosy fireplaces for the cooler months.
You can see a woman’s hand in the design. The walk-in-robe and bathroom off the master bedroom suite are both wonderfully spacious. And when it comes to storage you can forget cupboards. At intervals along the hallway are three storage rooms that are also popular with small grandchildren as playrooms. Children also love the play area with a sand pit at the foot of the garden.
In front of the house, a huge grassed area, swimming pool and large barbecue pavilion–with shade blinds and a fabulous misting system, ensure comfort and enjoyment whatever the time of day or season of the year.
On the practical side, modern technology ensures the property continues to run smoothly with regards to power, water, security and telecommunications.
Around the house is a fully surfaced area large enough to park 25 cars. This versatile space has a tennis court, room for trailers, a caravan and could probably host a small fete if required.
The property makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. The beauty of the location, the generous proportions of the home, the absence of noise and abundance of natural light make it seem like a permanent holiday.
Spoilt for choice of nearby restaurants and wineries, with passing kangaroos and spectacular sunsets, this home has a powerful attraction. It adds a whole new dimension to living out of town while being only forty minutes from the city centre. You don’t miss the city at all and, if you do, you can always see it in the distance – from your swimming pool while sipping a glass of champagne.
