STEPPING into the walled front garden of this Shirley Avenue, Mt Pleasant home is a very zen experience and to my delight I discovered a Japanese garden of tranquil proportions.
Winding pebble pathways, rock outcrops and gorgeously abundant flowering azaleas were an uplifting greeting to this three-bedroom/two-bathroom abode.
Sitting on 516sqm and mere metres from the river, this meticulously maintained home is a family affair, with room for getting together and space for solitude.
Tiled throughout, the ground floor is the working hub of the home, with a separate lounge and a spacious open-plan where no doubt all the family action takes place.
A large preparation area in the kitchen includes a central island and a separate breakfast bar, so whipping up meals would be a breeze.
There’s loads of cupboards and drawers and the vendor reckons she’ll really miss the pantry: “I love my walk-in-pantry,” she sighs, on our walk-through.
A sweep of doors and windows, including a huge bay window, look onto the rear garden and shade-sail covered alfresco area.
Sunshine spilled through the many large trees in the secluded, leafy garden making this an ideal spot for entertaining or simply lazing.
Nice dog walk
A sitting room/study and the bedrooms are on the second level, including the generous main with its walk-in-robe and light filled en-suite.
Walking the dog couldn’t be easier with a park at the end of the cul-de-sac. A step beyond is the river foreshore, where you can stroll up to the Deep Water Point cafe for a coffee before heading home.
The freeway is close at hand and this well designed home is in the sought after Rossmoyne and Applecross High School zone.
