ORIGINALLY built in the 1950s with subsequent extensions, this two-storey Attadale home is a refreshing balance of heritage and contemporary style.
It would be difficult to pass by this hill-topped home without noticing its art deco influences and humble magnitude.
Your attention will be further indulged by large, white-framed windows, warm decking and a touch of stone detailing which enliven the home’s neutral façade.
A little taste of Australian history features in the deceivingly generous front yard in the form of an enormous signature gum tree.
Through the entrance, french doors welcome you to a sitting room elegantly dressed in rich timber-floors and a stunning, wood-combustion fireplace.
The open plan design makes the adjoining kitchen a convenient pit stop for hungry children.
Glass panelling in the dining/living area lets in volumes of natural sunlight and exposes to dinner guests the serene pool outside.
Beyond the glass explains why this home is ideal for the entertainer. A built-in pizza oven is a charming focal point of the great outdoor alfresco area. It can churn out pizzas in no time so everyone can enjoy a relaxing evening here and certainly leave a little heavier than when they arrived.
An easy, low maintenance back yard allows for time better spent by the pool.
Colourful graffiti covers the interior walls of the brick shed cornering the back yard, making it the perfect man cave or enclosure for pubescent teenagers.
Back inside, adjacent to the neatly tucked away laundry, is the downstairs bathroom. Its earthy tones and clear glass enclosed shower will have you feeling at one with nature under the colossal showerhead.
Upstairs, is almost another house entirely. Two of the five bedrooms are upstairs; each have walk-in wardrobes and share an adjoining en suite bathroom. Another spacious living area again capitalises on the natural lighting brought in by those massive windows.
Not far from the Swan River and plenty of local shops and schools, this ample 945sqm property is easily capable of comforting a large family.
