Where dreams become reality House - Property ID: 833825
Imagine driving up a tree-lined driveway to an original homestead.
The homestead is the home of your dreams. You've dreamt of a charming, character filled, art deco house, where you can enjoy your antiques and collectables in a place where they look completely at home. And it's your home! And here, you feel completely at home, enjoying the space that only such a grand old home like this one could provide.
Built in the 1940s, the homestead was the residence of the Walker family, who were orchardists in the area. Evidence of the orchard remains, with some old citrus trees on the property, which continue to produce abundant fruit.
Surprisingly and pleasingly the homestead is largely in its original form, and it has been maintained well, to give you the option of retaining its current form, or upgrading as you please. The kitchen is the only significant upgrade, which is, of course, a good thing if you enjoy cooking in large, practical space.
As you would hope and expect, there are jarrah floor. Protected by the original carpets in some areas, the option of polishing the boards is obvious. High, ornate ceilings with plaster features, and leadlight windows complete the picture.
Of course, it's not all about the homestead, but the setting too, which is particularly interesting, especially as this is a suburban location. When the orchard was subdivided in the 1970s, the owners of the day had the sense to retain plenty of space around the homestead, resulting in the formation of miniature estate, comprising nearly an acre, at 3923 square metres. Because of this retained space, many large mature trees and the lawns were able to be preserved for future generations of kids to climb, and for gardeners to enjoy. The shade they provide is also significant during our long, hot summers.
While the property has scheme water and sewer, the gardens are watered from a bore. This water supply, combined with the beautiful heavy soils, makes gardening a dream: the extensive vegetable garden is testimony to that!
Other features include a swimming pool, workshop, office, huge games room with two additional rooms, which the current owners used as additional sleeping quarters for their family, complementing the four bedrooms is the main residence.
While this is a very special home, there is also development potential here. Zoned R15/25 with a reasonable prospect of R30.
So, then, if you are looking for a very special home with a rural feel and with the convenience of suburban living, there isn't likely anything better. Take a tour soon.
