THE welcome is as green as a St Patricks’ day march as you wander up to the covered portico of this Myaree home.
A mini-forest in the garden casts welcoming shade across the portico and an alfresco area, ensuring a cooling drop in temperature on the hottest day, as those going through a home open discovered recently.
“Even when it was 37 degrees…there was still a pleasant breeze,” the agent says.
With four bedrooms, a spacious living/dining area, a couple of studies and a sunken playroom this is an ideal family home.
Dark chocolate jarrah flows from the small entry to a gracious living/dining area where it meets the poured limestone paving of the covered alfresco area.
The lounge/dining is practical and stylish, with a faux fireplace and gas bayonet flanked by windows onto a side courtyard.
More windows can be found either side of a built-in alcove for the home entertainment units.
Elegant, white French doors open up onto a built-in barbeque and covered patio, where the gentle tinkling of a water feature adds a cool ambience to outdoor dining.
Jarrah stairs take you up to a spacious kitchen, all gleaming white, with lovely grey/green and black-flecked granite bench tops. There’s a heap of soft-close drawers and a large, double pantry.
Attractive timber and wrought iron stairs, with an attractive oak leaf motif, lead to the second level, where you’ll find a small sitting room and three of the bedrooms, including the main, with its very generous walk-in-robe , semi-ensuite and Juliette balcony.
You get city glimpses from here, viewed across the suburb’s many trees.
The third bedroom is on the ground floor and with its own semi-ensuite, it’s just the shot for visiting rellies, or grown up kids who won’t leave home.
Sitting on an easy care 452sqm block this lovely home is close to shops, cafes and parks, and Melville high and primary are in walking distance.
