THERE’S a dragon at this White Gum Valley home, but it’s a friendly one–a massive dracaena dragon tree to be precise.
It’s a stunning sculptural counterpoint in a cactus garden aflame with flowering red hot pokers.
Sitting on 835sqm this five-bedroom/two-bathroom property is two homes in one, creating a variety of living options.
A wrap-around veranda in the central al fresco connects the original cottage and the one-bedroom stand-alone abode at the rear.
It was built for the owner’s parents and could be rented out or digs for adult children. You could even move in yourself and rent the larger home.
The 1940s cottage has four bedrooms, including a spacious main with huge glass doors opening onto a central courtyard.
The lounge room has its original fireplace, but a wall has been removed to let it segue into the dining/kitchen space.
Light spills in from a variety of windows, especially in the dining area where autumn sunshine pours in through north-facing double-glass doors.
Slumbering on a small al fresco deck on the other side, a contented cat enjoyed the warming sun and hardly moved as I walked by.
There’s a second, walled al fresco off the spacious kitchen, which has white stone benchtops and lots of cupboards and drawers.
Situated on Samson Street, Booyeembarra Park is just up the road and there’s no shortage of shops and cafes nearby.
Fremantle’s CBD and South Beach are a short five-minute drive away.
All ages can co-mingle in perfect harmony in this beautifully presented abode.
