AISLING House is truly stunning, a secluded tree-change nestled among beautiful gardens, which include an avenue of pear trees, water feature, treehouse and large pine tree.
When the owners bought the 3.24ha property, the home was a one-bedroom granite cottage, built around 1910.
While planning to renovate and build eventually, the pending arrival of their second child spurred them into action, building a two storey Karratha stone residence around the original home.
From the parking area at the back of the house an ornate walkway leads to the top floor and the open-plan kitchen/living/dining area with jarrah flooring and enclosed fireplace.
Doors open to a balcony that runs the length of the home and where you entertain while enjoying sunsets and views over the property and valley.
Also on this floor is a home office, bedroom, bathroom and master bedroom with walk-in robe and doors to the balcony.
A spiral staircase in the living area leads down to the ground floor and another living room.
Part of the old cottage, the thick original walls keep it wonderfully cool.
The ground floor layout also includes a second living space, three bedrooms, study, bathroom, separate toilet and laundry.
Outside there is pool, entertaining area with pizza oven and fabulous pool house with kitchen.
It is a wonderful place to host family and friends and the owners often put up a big screen and hold movie nights with the sounds of birds and frogs in the background.
The home also includes equestrian facilities, chicken pen and vegetable beds.
