LIKE the owners did when they bought this house in 2014, you might fall in love with the downstairs living area with its open layout and light, bright feel.
It remains one of their favourite places.
“It opens to the courtyard through full-width bi-fold doors and is a great place for family and friends to enjoy an intimate meal or host a big party,” they said.
“The double-height void above this area adds to the spaciousness.”
The two-storey home has many more delightful spaces where you can spend time.
“The upstairs balcony is fantastic at sunset to sit and wind down with a drink after a long week; it also has views of the city across the tree tops of Kings Park,” the owners said.
“The front veranda is lovely in winter to take in the warming sun or at sunset in summer – being shaded by mature frangipani trees and having the soothing sounds of the water feature running in the background.
“Of course, the very large underground cellar is a real hidden gem, and brings such a wow factor to the house; if only we could ever fill it up.”
The front of the home includes the huge, open-plan living area with living room, dining area, family room and kitchen with Miele appliances.
A hallway leads from this zone, past the central courtyard with outdoor kitchen to a guest suite with built-in robe and ensuite, powder room, laundry and drying court, and double garage.
Upstairs, the master bedroom, with walk-though robe and ensuite, and lounge room open to the balcony.
A walkway overlooking the family room and courtyard leads to two more bedrooms with built-in robes, bathroom and powder room.
The home is on a 397sq m block with attractive, low maintenance gardens.
The location is just as appealing as the home.
“We love the morning walks around the neighbourhood with our two young children,” the owners said.
“We often walk down to see the ducks at Kilgour Park or Lake Jualbup, pick up some supplies at the local grocery stores and stop off for a relaxed coffee at the friendly Abbey Road cafe on the way home; it’s such a great way to start the day.
“In the summer evenings, we can take a short walk or bike ride to the lovely Somerville auditorium to catch a film.”
The location is also close to public transport and cycle paths.
The home has a guide price of high $1 millions with offers closing November 13.
