Lofty ambition

IF you’re after a gorgeous limestone house with loads of character, look no further than this White Gum Valley abode.

Tucked away on Mulberry Farm Lane, it has a fairytale hidden-in-the-woods vibe; a place where you can completely relax and forget about all the craziness going on in the world right now.

The facade is a beauty with limestone gracefully mixed with exposed brickwork, decorative window grills and a verandah with wooden beams.

This three bedroom two bathroom house is not just easy on the eye, it has impressive green credentials – built from reclaimed materials with a solar passive design.

The open plan living/dining/kitchen area has a farmhouse-type feel with limestone walls complementing the low-sheen wooden floors and the pot-black wood heater. There’s also a little snug on this level, giving you an extra living space and a bolthole to hide from the kids.

The large u-shaped kitchen has plenty of bench space and storage with stainless steel appliances built into the cabinetry.

The pièce de résistance of this house is the spacious loft, which overlooks the chocolate-box rear garden.

It’s the owners’ favourite spot in the house and I can see why: a gorgeous and spacious retreat with views of the treetops and WA’s wide-open skies.

This area could be used for anything you want (artist’s studio/sophsticated man cave/study/home office).

The owners have a bit of everything – a bedroom and ”dressing room” at one end and a home office/study at the other, combining the best of both worlds.

The back garden is one of those manicured delights – a cross between The Secret Garden and a Mediterranean courtyard.

There’s two filtered ponds, a raised limestone patio with sheltered alfresco, some grass and a paved area, all couched in a bevy of potted plants, shrubs and trees. 

There’s even a cute artist’s studio at the rear; perfect for painting or any creative projects you have on the go.

The garden is a lovely little arbour to relax in with a glass of vino at night. And after some vino, it’s time for bed. 

The three bedrooms are a decent size with the main ensuite including a corner tub and lovely finishes. The third bedroom is situated in the loft.

The home includes a laundry, 1.8kW solar panel system plus 1.2kW enphase battery, gas hot water system and two car spaces.

It’s situated on the doorstep of Valley Park and a short distance from Hazel Orme Community Kindergarten, White Gum Valley Primary School, Booyeembara Park, Cafe Lumos and Fremantle Golf Course.
