“THE property just feels good from the moment you walk in the door; there is a real positive energy about the house,” selling agent Luke Holmes said.
This bold statement will come as no surprise to visitors of Number 182, which puts the scenic in Scenic Drive.
The two-storey residence is on the fringe of Lake Joondalup Nature Reserve and has views of the water and Macedonia Island from the huge decked balcony.
“The owners love to sit on the balcony in the evening with a book or a glass of wine and watch the world go by; it is almost like therapy,” Mr Holmes said.
“Scenic Drive isn’t a busy road and you only get the residents driving past on their way home every now and again.
“Watching the sunset over the lake is stunning.”
The ground-floor rooms have are also blessed with beautifully framed vistas of the surrounding bushland, creating a family retreat in every sense of the word.
The home has a formal lounge room, a library, a roomy open-plan kitchen and dining area, four newly carpeted bedrooms including the master with ensuite and walk-in robe, a workshop with power and a double garage.
The classically styled property has also been extensively renovated over the years to keep things up-to-date, but the owners have been conscious about retaining the home’s rustic charm.
“A few years ago the owners modernised the kitchen; it now has conveniences that older-style kitchens just didn’t have,” Mr Holmes said.
“It has the benefit of a dishwasher, solid 40mm granite benchtops, a breakfast bar, lots of cupboard space, a rangehood, a double stainless steel sink and so on.”
The owners also made a huge effort in the outdoor area, creating a welcoming cedar-lined alfresco area which will delight buyers.
“It really makes it a place to sit, relax and enjoy and is a lovely setting to entertain guests.”
Extras include a fresh coat of paint, versatile storage, security screens, an alarm system, and mature fruit trees in the garden.
