WITH an already impressive residence catering to their needs, creating an equally impactful backyard oasis for entertaining was high on the agenda for the owners of this property when they bought the home 10 years ago.
And now with lush established gardens alongside a sprawling alfresco space, buyers can reap the rewards from all their hard work.
The retired owners explained that when they first purchased the home, the 465sq m property’s backyard was almost entirely paved, had few plants and zero shade.
“We built a large covered, plant-filled alfresco area which provides a great space for entertaining most of the year,” they said.
“We have also built a pergola along the north side of the house, covered in wisteria which provides shade in the summer and allows the sun to shine into the house mid-winter.
“A large garden bed with shrubs and a Silver Princess tree complete the transformation of the back garden.
“During the upgrade, we also installed a gate allowing access to the back lane to provide a caravan parking area adjacent to the triple garage.”
These upgrades complement the two-storey residence wonderfully, especially in the downstairs main living/kitchen area, which extends into the timber-lined alfresco space.
There are also four bedrooms with built-in robes, two bathrooms plus a downstairs powder room, a home office, and a separate formal lounge and dining room.
The home also has reverse-cycle airconditioning, ceiling fans and solar panels.
“It is within easy walking distance of cafes, the railway station, shops and the library,” the owners said.
“It is also a hop, skip and a jump from Neil Hawkins Park and Lake Joondalup.
“For those who enjoy walking it provides attractive footpaths and plenty of green spaces.”
