MUSIC down the ages is peppered with songs about the moon, from Beethoven to Bing Crosby, to Sting and the Smashing Pumpkins.
The name Moonlight Cover conjures up many more, including my favourite, Cat Stevens’ Moonshadow.
Approaching this Moonlight Cover home via a peaceful cul de sac winding around the paperbark-lined river foreshore made the name seem simply perfect.
In a street of similar sized homes, this two-year-old abode with its stylish skillion roof lines stands out.
And with oodles of space, five bedrooms, three bathrooms and theatre room it delivers a super-charged family home.
The vendor and her teenage daughter list location, space, and stylishness as their favourite things.
“The layout is perfect, exactly what I wanted. It functions beautifully,” mum said.
“It’s the modernness of it,” her daughter adds.
“Acres of white stone benches ensure this is a great kitchen to work in.”
A series of long, lean windows flood the huge entry hall with light, showcasing the lovely jarrah floors, of the home, which was architecturally designed and built by the vendor.
On the other side of a rich-brown natural rock feature wall is a commodious living/dining/kitchen area, overlooking a lap pool.
Cupboard envy raised its ugly head as I took in a bank of full-length, pull-out pantries, fronted by beautiful frosted Italian glass.
“Would you like a coffee?” the vendor asks, opening a set of doors to reveal an appliances cupboard, a percolator sending a delicious coffee aroma into the air.
Acres of white stone benches ensure this is a great kitchen to work in.
But a fiver-burner stove and oven in the covered patio show a fair bit of alfresco cooking goes on.
A huge upper-level sitting room, with a mini-kitchen greets you as you climb the stairs to the second level, where you’ll find the theatre room, along with the “kids” bedrooms, which are all double.
In the parents’ “wing”, a massive bedroom opens onto a street-facing balcony, and there’s a spacious dressing room and stunning bathroom with double vanities, a make-up area, and twin showers—in a glass cubicle big enough to house a family of pygmies.
With the freeway and Leach Highway just around the corner, despite its tranquility, Moonlight Cove is mere minutes from transporting you anywhere you want to go.
