Nedlands, 17 Ord Street – Offers in the high $1.6 millions

THE owners built this two-storey home in 2008 to suit their growing family.

Now their children are older, they are moving to smaller townhouse and it is time for a new family to enjoy all the spacious home has to offer.

There is certainly room to spare with a theatre room, home office and open-plan living/dining/kitchen area on the ground floor.

The living area flows out to the alfresco area where you can sit and watch the black cockatoos in the neighbour’s trees.

“You can even watch the fireworks during the Royal Show,” the owners said.

“It is the perfect place for a morning cup of coffee listening to the birds sing, and a glass of wine in the evening watching the sun disappear behind the trees.”

The alfresco area has view of the pool that the owners said was fantastic for morning and evening lap swimming during the hot summer days.

The master bedroom, with walk-in robe and ensuite with a large sunken bath, is also on the ground floor and has a lovely outlook to the front garden.

Parents can enjoy some quiet time, away from the three children’s rooms, which are upstairs along with a lounge, study, music nook and second bathroom.

The home was designed to be functional as well as comfortable, and has an alarm system, automatic front gates with pedestrian access, 1.5KW solar power system, solar/gas hot water system, ducted reverse-cycle airconditioning, intercom, and easy care gardens with reticulation.

It is on a 697sq m block, close to public and private schools, train and bus routes, parks and the river, and Claremont Quarter.

The owners said it was a quiet, friendly neighbourhood.
