About this listing
Up until 1st December this unique property offers 3 possible options for any prospective buyer:
a) to purchase the entire property for $1.75m
b) to purchase the house block of 2000 square metres for $1.3m; or
c) to purchase the bottom block of 4000 square metres (with dual road access) for $750k
If not sold by 1st of December the home owner will proceed with the subdivision during which time the property will be leased.
In 1993 the owners decided that a tree change was necessary when their 7-year-old wouldn't attend school unless she was wearing designer clothes.
After extensive searching throughout the hills area, they found the most beautiful block they had ever seen. It has 2 creeks, a number of towering liquid ambers, oak trees, golden ash, crimson ash and some very rare gum trees. They knew the children were excited too when they gleefully chatted about living in a park.
The initial plan was to renovate the existing timber home, built in the late 1800's. However, upon advice that it would be wiser to demolish and rebuild, so that's what they did.
As the family of 5 grew, the flexibility of a timber home came to the fore.
Currently set up as a 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home with a guest bedroom and ensuite also within the main house.
The master suite is well separated from the downstairs children area and being 8 metres x 4 metres, provides a spacious and serene parent's retreat.
Downstairs are the 3 children's bedrooms coupled with an activities room and a wine/storage area. The second bathroom is also located downstairs.
The views from the home are spectacular, especially at night. The large wrap around balcony is perfect for relaxing with a crisp white wine after a swim in the chlorine-free pool in summer.
In winter you just chill out in front of the pot belly stove in the kitchen/family area.
An entertaining area of recycled brick paving of approximately 300 square metres has hosted weddings, 21sts, 18ths and numerous other important functions. It's also ideal for a long lunch that has often finished off around the fire pit where the world's problems are solved.
And if you're a keen gardener, there is also a 5 x 5m garden shed.
The owners were in the process of subdividing the property when they decided to put it on the market. Having enjoyed many happy years in the house and with their children now grown and in all different parts of the world, it is time for some other family to enjoy this delightful piece of paradise.
At the moment there are 3 possible options for any prospective buyer:
d) to purchase the entire property for $1.75m
e) to purchase the house block of 2000 square metres for $1.3m; or
f) to purchase the bottom block of 4000 square metres (with dual road access) for $750k
This truly beautiful family home is located 35 minutes from Perth, 15 minutes from both airports and only 200 metres from the Gooseberry Hill shopping centre. It's only 200 metres from the bus stop for children attending Perth College, Guildford Grammar or Helena College. And only 3 kilometres to the Kalamunda markets.
Waking and falling asleep to the chorus of frogs croaking and birds singing is a simple pleasure that cannot be understated. The owners moved from the western suburbs and have never regretted it.
