IMAGINE growing up in the Hills, with half an acre of land to run around on or roam with the family dogs, near John Forrest National Park and walk trails.
It is a lifestyle WA businesswoman and philanthropist Janet Holmes à Court may have enjoyed as a child.
This Swan View house was her home from the age of three to 17 years old.
The charming character home has been renovated since then and has a formal lounge with feature fireplace and light and bright, open-plan living-dining-kitchen area overlooking the huge backyard.
The modern kitchen has gloss cabinetry, glass splashback, walk-in pantry and large breakfast bar.
An old Metters stove is a delightful nod to yesteryear.
The dining area opens to an elevated timber deck where you could enjoy summer barbecues or an evening wine with the Hills as your backdrop.
There are three bedrooms.
The master has a semi-ensuite bathroom and there is a combined bathroom-laundry.
The home is a lovely combination of period features, including high ceilings, jarrah flooring, ornate cornices and ceiling roses, and modern conveniences and would make a lovely residence for a family, young couple or downsizers looking for a fabulous Hills lifestyle.
It is on level 2023sq m block with mature trees, including fruit trees, lawn, carport and ample space for a veggie garden and shed.
