THIS perfectly private and peaceful home on a quiet Hilton street is an escape from reality.
Large trees hide this two-bedroom, two-bathroom house and a long driveway with an auto lock-up gate makes it hard for the grind of city life to find you.
The property faces north, allowing light in all year round and if we get another cold winter like this year, it will be a welcome bonus.
It seems the original owner was quite the nautical fan as the roof resembles an upside down hull.
A downstairs open area features the living, dining and kitchen areas, and with bifold glass doors, it blends the beautiful outdoor alfresco area into the space.
Within the character home lies a modern kitchen which was renovated five years ago.
It includes granite benchtops, Bosch dishwasher, large fridge, soft fold drawers and modern oven and stove.
At the top of the solid concrete tiled stairs is an office overlooking the downstairs.
If this house hadn’t impressed me yet, the main bedroom was the clincher.
If I had to use three words to describe this room, they would be; dreamy, gigantic and ideal.
With its size, there is every excuse to never have to leave it.
Endless space for the biggest bed you could possibly find, an open bathroom with a spa and a double shower are some of the highlights.
Plenty of wardrobe storage lines a wall leading to a secret dressing area behind.
The large northern-facing window
allows enough light in during the day to never have to use a light switch and the soundproof walls means you can sing and dance as loud as you want.
The dreamiest of dreamy bedrooms and one way to escape reality.
The second bedroom is located downstairs beside the double garage and has its own courtyard area.
Access to the guest bathroom is one doorway away which makes it very convenient and almost like an ensuite.
The double garage has endless possibilities if you have a creative mind.
A third bedroom is the most obvious option as it has easy access to the house.
A games room, gym and living area are some of the other options but it’s totally up to you.
The house contains air-con throughout and also has an easy-care small front garden.
A short drive to Fremantle means reality is almost on your doorstep — if you’re ready for it.
