ORIGINALLY built in 1985 by National Homes on the 701sq m block, this Warwick home has since undergone updates that will appeal to modern families.
“We are only the second owners of the property and soon after purchasing the house we made a significant addition in 2003,” the owner said.
“We added extensions containing a large master bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite, as well as a storeroom/workshop.
“Then we added a large alfresco area with Urban Stone paving, garden beds with a water fountain and an area of artificial turf.”
More recently, the original windows were replaced with high-grade glazing.
“This shows our endeavour to both upgrade and maintain the home in a high quality and standard,” the owner said.
Presently there are four bedrooms, two bathrooms and three separate living and entertaining areas.
Solid American oak timber flooring anchors the home from the entry through to the formal lounge room and formal dining space, which also feature recessed ceilings, downlights, large windows letting in tons of natural light and a gas fireplace for those chilly evenings.
In the central hub of the home is the open-plan kitchen/meals/family/ games area that spills out to the outdoor entertaining space.
“The alfresco area is ideally located on the southeastern corner, which means the wind and weather do not intrude into that space, allowing us to maximise its use in our Mediterranean climate,” the owner said.
This leaves the sleeping quarters, which are well separated with the master positioned at the back of the home and the remaining bedrooms with built-in robes towards the front section of the house.
One extra-large bedroom is currently used as an office and library and is a versatile space ideal for those who run businesses from home or looking for an extra utility area.
“The house has excellent proximity to the Warwick train station, Hawker Primary School and playing fields,” the owner said.
“An extra bonus was the very convenient access to Mitchell Freeway and Reid Highway and Wanneroo Road.
“The neighbourhood is quiet and settled and help is always close at hand.
“Even the sound of the primary school siren does not disturb but rather complements the neighbourhood.”
Other features include a 5m x 3m workshop with power, high ceilings, a loft and airconditioning, drive-through access via the garage, 1.5kW solar-power system, and full garden reticulation.
