Cockburn is often mentioned as one of the fastest growing areas in metropolitan Perth.
But I hadn’t realised quite how much it’d grown until venturing to Hammond Park last week.
Apart from shiny new houses in all directions there’s a stunning number of massive retail outlets selling everything home owners, the home handy-person, or young families, would need.
Nearby is this very funky bar/cafe that wouldn’t look out of place in Subiaco.
This is the perfect family home, with a formal lounge as well as a massive open-plan living/dining/kitchen area.
As an ex-display it’s loaded with space and technology, not to mention luxury.
The kitchen is enough to make a master chef weep with joy, with a huge expanse of bench space (including a breakfast bar), an appliance cupboard, and a massive pantry.
There’s even a special door onto the patio, making alfresco entertaining easy whipping up a sponge.
The covered patio is a winner for family or friends, with a timber deck and the fittings for a built-in-barbecue.
Inside, a series of gabled roof pitches add interest and white tiles throughout are both classy and practical.
The main bedroom is at the front of the house, a veritable parents wing with a gorgeous, spacious, ensuite and walk-in-robes.
The kids’ wing is off the family room, with three double bedrooms and an open play room.
With 650sqm of land there’s room to add a pool for the little darlings to cool off in these hot summer days.
Hammond Park is well serviced with a variety of shops, and plans for a primary and high school, and of course the freeway is almost on the doorstep.
