“The home was built by our uncle Jack Brown in 1947,” owner Phyllis Brown said.

“My father, Arthur, purchased the home from him in 1954 and it was used for family holidays, which was a welcome change from the hot, dry family farm in Yoting, near Quairading in the Wheatbelt.

“We children had loads of fun at the beach and we loved the area.

“It was also a time my father caught up with his sisters, who lived in Inglewood.”

Buyers who grew up in the area may also recall walking across the road from Doubleview Primary School to play on the tennis courts, which used to be a part of this property until 1970.

“It was hired out to groups for night tennis and the school also had lessons for children there,” Mrs Brown said.

“We were keen tennis players and had many challengers on court and probably a few arguments as well.”

The house, bequeathed to Mrs Brown in 2006 when her mother died, has remained in a largely original state.

The only alteration to the brick-and-tile property has been the addition of a rear veranda in 1963 to secure the laundry and toilet space.

It has all the glorious hallmarks of a period home, from high ceilings and wide hallways to ornate cornicing and etched windows throughout.

The lounge has a fireplace and there is a separate dining room.

Two large bedrooms complete the accommodation, as well as a light-filled sleepout or third bedroom.

Rounding it off are the separate double garage with built-in workbench and the massive outdoor area, which offers plenty of room for backyard cricket matches.

“The large, open yard was probably our most-used area,” Mrs Brown said.

“The large hall was also used to do jigsaws on the floor.”

The R30-zoned property is no doubt a fantastic opportunity for developers as well, with potential for up to three green-titled blocks with street frontages.
