LOCATED at the end of a cul-de-sac, with its white-bricked exterior guarded by tall, strong trees, this house is perfect for a large stylish family or young couple wanting to expand.
The aroma of home hits you at the front door, a combined scent of mother nature and family, making it instantly comfortable.
With three different living areas and sitting on 702 square metres, it’s enough to escape the others and have your own space.
The cream walls with white window frames, light blue door frames and skirting inside, reminds me of my childhood home; it screams vintage with a modern touch, a delicate delight.
Timber floorboards run through the front of the house, taken over by slick, orangey terracotta tiles in the kitchen. With its old-school appliances I can imagine a secret family apple pie recipe has been at work.
Out the back there’s a clear blue pool, a reasonable patch of lawn for the kids to kick a mini footy around and a good-sized paved and covered alfresco area.
From the bag rack inside to the rope on the tree and what looks to be the start of a tree house being built, I bet there’s a happy family somewhere calling this their first home.
A great location in the zone of Applecross Primary and Senior High Schools, and within walking distance of the Melville Beach river foreshore, this is a dream for the family who owns it next.
