ON an elevated corner 681sq m block, this two-storey home is ready for a new family to make it home.
Owners Douglas and his wife said they were the third owners of the 1977 build.
“The original owner was a carpenter by trade and did the interior woodwork himself,” Douglas said.
“The home was one of the first in Wanneroo to have a second storey and hence it earned itself the name “the mansion” as it sat upon the hill surrounded by single-storey homes.”
They installed a new entry point into the home from the driveway to allow for easy access as well as erected a front brick wall to provide privacy to the rear yard, updated the lighting and painted over green and blue walls with modern, neutral tones of soft coffee and beige.
Central to the home is the spectacular double-height family room with full-length windows allowing views of the below-ground pool, gardens and outdoor entertaining area.“Our favourite parts of the home change throughout the seasons,” Douglas said.
“In summer, we are huge fans of barbeques by the pool and in winter, we love to sit by the slow-combustion fire playing Uno with the family or drinking coffee.”
Step up to the tiled dining and kitchen area, with further living space in the spacious, carpeted theatre room.
The master bedroom with ensuite is privately located downstairs, while upstairs via a jarrah staircase are three minor bedrooms with views across the trees.
Completing the home is the family bathroom, laundry, carport and driveway with room for many vehicles, and solar hot water system.
“Living in Wanneroo is great, it has everything that you need and with children it is very handy to schools, public pool and local library,” Douglas said.
